Perdita Riley is facing the greatest dilemma of her life. Why had she taken Violet Freestone’s advice on how to make herself look more alluring? It led her into the arms of a womaniser. And now Perdita has to deal with a huge setback. Actually, Setback Number One isn’t huge yet, but it won’t be long before it is.

To cheer herself up, Perdita goes shopping, where an extraordinary encounter deposits her, literally, into the lap of Saul Hadley. She would like to stay there, but Setback Number One is going to get in the way.

Will she find a way to deal with what has happened? Can she manage the complications of her growing attraction to Saul? This hilarious situational romantic comedy will keep you gripped until the very end.

Review by Catherine

I enjoyed this book a lot more than I thought I would. Normally I would avoid a book which describes itself as a “whacky” romantic comedy on the cover, but I was pleasantly surprised by this one.

Basically, this is a formulaic romance but what sets it apart for me is the likeability of the characters. There are exceptions, of course.

Perdita is charming, and incredibly naïve about sex. This is just about believable when her background comes to light. Her use of botanical terms for anything related to human reproduction could grate, but actually becomes quite endearing.

Luke and Gavin are the couple who live next door to her in their block of flats in Clifton, and give her plenty of much-needed support throughout her various escapades.

Perdita has been wondering why she never attracts boyfriends, and takes the advice of a delightful old lady called Violet Freestone on how to make herself more alluring. Unfortunately, the advice works too well, and Perdita finds she has been “pollinated.”

Events throughout just get getting funnier and funnier as the book progresses. I am amazed at the way the author has managed to maintain the fast pace of the storyline and fill it with so many humorous incidents at the same time. I shall look out for more from her.

Love & Pollination was a lovely book that I managed to read over a holiday weekend and enjoy immensely.

Mari Jane Law lives in the UK. She loves books, TV series and films that make her laugh and, through her writing, discovered she could make other people laugh as well. She hopes those who buy or borrow her work have as much fun reading it as she had in writing it.

Love & Pollination is the first whacky romantic comedy novel in a series she is working on – each book in the series will have at least one new love story. Her main characters appeal so strongly to her that she is unable to let them go. She enjoys their humorous behaviour, quirky personalities and sharp, witty dialogue.
