Janet Elizabeth Henderson is a Scot living in New Zealand and married to a
Dutch man – it can get a little confusing in her house! She has two little
girls and a menagerie of animals that keep her busy during the daylight
hours. At night, when everyone is asleep, Janet writes contemporary
romance. Her main aim is to make herself laugh so loudly that she wakes
her husband - it’s payback for his snoring! Janet trained as a fine
artist, has worked all over the world and – like some of her characters – has been fired
from too many jobs to count. Janet’s main hobbies are reading, painting
and talking – and not always in that order.
So far Janet has published four books - Mad Love, Laura's Big Break, The Davina Code and Lingerie Wars. Lingerie Wars is the first in a new series, which is set in Scotland. Janet is also the winner of Romance Writers of America's Silken Sands Award for Laura's Big Break.

★★★★★Laura's Big Break by Janet Elizabeth Henderson
I was given this R2R in exchange for my honest opinion.
So after reading The Davina Code and Lingerie Wars, I wanted more from this author. So when I got a hold of Laura's Big Break I was thrilled. And I was not disappointed.
Laura is an aspiring journalist, stuck writing for a teen magazine. When she get's her big break, a position at a woman's magazine. The only problem, she must get an interview with the moron, neanderthal, screw up, Mr. Scared of Commitment, her first, her best friends brother, the cherry popper. Is the job really worth it?
Charlie, Doctor Hottie, is the complete opposite of Laura. He is wild, carefree, spontaneous, living his life to the fullest, looking for the next adventure. He has come back a war hero, has gone viral, and is scared of a 5'2 firecracker. She is not afraid to tell him what she thinks, how he needs to be stable, to grow up, and flat out intimidates him.
But together they are not oil and vinegar, no they are worse, electricity and water, and someone is getting hurt. So when his evil little plan to keep her away fails, he's stuck bicycling across Holland with her. So let the crazy begin.
And in true Ms. Henderson fashion, so creates hysterics, between the wacky characters and situations. The characters are never perfect, which I love. What fun would a character be if nothing ever went wrong. And believe me, they get the fair share of trouble.
This was a great, easy read, that keep me laughing throughout. A few spots left me shaking my head at all the crazy.
Thanks to the author for sharing the looniest bike ride ever. I had a blast.
