Kathryn Ledson serves an ace with the third book in her Erica Jewell series, Grand Slam. Released just in time for the Australian Open 2016 (thinking that was a marketing decision with some foresight), the book features all sorts of shenanigans on and off the tennis court … basically, wherever Erica Jewell happens to be.
Erica Jewell can’t worry about hunky hired gun, Jack Jones, and his commitment-phobic ways. She’s flat out managing Dega Oil’s sponsorship of the Australian Open tennis, and doing a pretty good job. That is until a devastating oil rig explosion sends Dega’s reputation and share price plummeting.
Public outrage over the incident upsets Emilio Méndez – the tournament’s biggest drawcard – and he wants to cut ties with Dega. When Erica is sent to calm him, Emilio becomes convinced he can’t win without her. He demands she stay close, and the media misinterprets their relationship, much to Jack’s irritation. Meanwhile, danger lurks, threatening Emilio and Erica, and she must race against time to discover: Who’s trying to kill them and why?
From the elite inner sanctum of the Australian Open to the packed halls of Chadstone Shopping Centre, can Australia’s favourite accidental heroine save Emilio, her job, and so-called relationship with Jack Jones?
