When Lindsey Parker’s father announces that he is to remarry, Lindsey does what any good daughter would do: wishes him congratulations, then sets about trying to kill his fiancée.
Fortunately, Lindsey’s botched attempt at bumping Karen off fails, but it does succeed in driving her away. Jubilation turns to guilt when Lindsey realises her father is genuinely broken-hearted. The only way to mend it is to get Karen back.
But Karen already has a new man. In an attempt to break the new couple up, Lindsey turns honey-trapper. The mission: to seduce her ex-future-step-mother’s boyfriend. The problem: she’s falling in love with him…
Inspiration for The Matchbreaker
The idea for The Matchbreaker came to me while I was dating a divorced chap who had a child. I started out wanting to tell the story from the POV of the girlfriend who becomes marked as the ‘wicked stepmother’ but decided it would be more fun to write from the point of view of the daughter who feels that her place in her father’s affections is threatened.
