This is a light-hearted great fun romantic comedy but with plenty of substance.  Well written it grabs your attention and whisks you through what is an engaging plot with endearing characters.  It's also much more than just a comedy romance for it also interweaves an element of suspense. Well done Honno Press (a small but perfectly formed little publishing house) for finding this talented author.  If you enjoy this then try her earlier novels, Headhunters, Big Cats and Kitten Heels and The Floristry Commission.

Guerrillas in our Midst Synopsis

Edda is single, twenty-eight and in receipt of the second worst news ever. Her soulmate and best-friend Beth is deserting her…for Surrey, for Jack and worst of all for the baby she's expecting all too soon. A final late night adventure brought on by frustration and Cava leads to an invitation to join South London's most secret society – the Brockley Spades.

Suddenly, Edda's life gets a lot more exciting, turning the tables on teary-eyed Beth – now a martyr to her hormones and missing Edda's shoulder to cry on. Edda is filling her Beth-shaped hole with oh-so-gorgeous Guy – dark-haired, artistic and prone to picking her up for illicit forays into starlit horticulture, her knicker-flashing colleague Amanda and new lodger, Robert, oh-so-nice but not very exciting.

A little light weeding in the dead of night shines a new headlamp on the goings on down Brockley High Road. What it reveals is a web of intrigue, riot police, bolt cutters and bashed up bay trees. And a new, more adventurous and independent Edda…mistress of her future and much, much more.
