Looking For La La - a chicklit novel by Ellie Campbell


What do you do if you're a stay at home mom who discovers someone is writing love postcards to her husband?  Well, if you're Pam Burks and Lorraine Campbell (aka Ellie Campbell) you use it as inspiration for a quirky, very funny chicklit novel cum mystery called Looking For La La.  (Available free on Kindle giveaway promotions on the 11th and 12th May.)  Sparked by a true incident in Pam's life, the story follows Cathy Rogers, mother of two, whose dull routines are shaken up by the arrival of a mystery postcard proclaiming love for her husband.  Quickly she involves her best friend and fellow mothers in the investigation, stirring up a whole lot of trouble, unearthing a good many secrets, jeopardizing her marriage and discovering that not only is someone out to sabotage her marriage, but there seems to be a stalker, and maybe even a murderer, in the neighborhood.  It's a humorous look at male/female relationships, the dangerous temptations that can arise when things have gone a bit stale and the fragility of trust when jealousy rears its ugly head.  And no, we never did discover who sent the original postcard.
