Fall Girl

‘The secret to having people give you money is to act as though you don’t want it.’

Meet Ella Canfield, highly qualified evolutionary biologist. Attractive, if a little serious-looking in those heavy glasses—but then she’s about to put her career on the line. Dr Canfield is seeking funding for a highly unorthodox research project. She wants to prove that an extinct animal still roams in one of Australia’s most popular national parks.

Meet Daniel Metcalf, good-looking, expensively dishevelled millionaire. Quite witty but far too rich to be taken seriously. He heads the Metcalf Trust, which donates money to offbeat scientific research projects. He has a personal interest in animals that don’t exist.

Problem number one: There is no such person as Dr Ella Canfield.

Problem number two: Della Gilmore, professional con artist, has never met anyone like Daniel Metcalf before.

Someone is going to take a fall.

A sparkling, sexy read from the author of Addition, Fall Girl is a story about passion and loyalty, deceit and integrity, and the importance of believing in things that don’t exist.

Praise for Toni Jordan
andFall Girl

Like its witty predecessor, this is intelligent romantic comedy at its deft best…Jordan has a gift for dialogue.

Light, bright romantic comedy…Toni Jordan has the winning quality of writing like she enjoys it. Her debut novel, Addition, was an unexpected hit and I can’t see her fans being disappointed by this one.

This is an elegantly orchestrated romance with some sizzling sexual chemistry…simply a joy to read…Jordan uses her intricate plot to keep readers on their toes with some unexpected twists and turns.

Jordan doesn’t merely imitate a well-worn genre here. Her characters are full and detailed, their relationships and history suggestively drawn, and there’s a depth to Della that prevents her from being reduced to a mere plot function…Jordan clearly writes for readers: Fall Girl is there to surprise and delight.

‘An entertaining read full of quirky characters.’
