Synopsis

Fall Girl by Toni Jordan

Remember the rules. Rule one is easy. Never ask for money. Since she was a child, Della Gilmore has been taught how to con people. Today she's attempting to pull off the biggest coup of her career. Her family is depending on her. It all looks good on paper. With a pair of glasses and a sheaf of impressive papers she's: Ella Canfield, a highly qualified evolutionary biologist seeking funding for an unorthodox research project. And her mark is: Daniel Metcalf, a handsome millionaire who donates money to offbeat scientific projects. What could go wrong? The problem is Della has never met someone like Daniel before. She knows he shouldn't trust her. But can she trust him? As the plan begins to unravel and Della finds her feelings interfering with the job, she begins to wonder if you can put a price on deceit and love.
