Lola Hussey, 24 years old, no boyfriend, still living with her mum on a London housing estate and stuck in a going nowhere job in a third rate Private Investigation Agency. Life had to get better surely? When Derek Lewis, rich Australian playboy, is found dead after falling from the roof of his office in salacious circumstances, Lola's opportunity to flex her investigative muscles had begun. 

But it wasn't only Lola's professional career that was about to take off. Little did she know it, her love life was too. 

Between her new boss, Julian, who was an uptight Adonis, and Joe the office Romeo, Lola was having a hard time to keep her professional integrity intact and her sassy comments to herself. Still, a job was a job, and if it involved working with two handsome men then who else would be up for the challenge?

Great 1st chapter. Normally, I don't like a lot of narrative at the beginning, but you make it funny and enjoyable to read. Love Lola. She reminds me of Rose in Doctor Who, living with her nutty mother. Love your voice. It's perfect for Lola. Best wishes.

Funny. It made me laugh which is cool. I'd have preferred some of the details to come later but the way it is still works.
