Friday Night Fever

Friday Night Fever

A fiancé who can’t keep his pants on, revenge that’s both inventive and vindictive, and being framed for a crime she didn’t commit. How on earth is Samantha going to survive this lot?

Sam’s life is perfect, until she finds out her boss wants to shag her and her boyfriend’s shagging someone else. It’s not something she’s going to take lying down, even if her revenge sees her having to flee New Zealand for safer shores.

Set in Melbourne, Australia in the late seventies, before email, mobile phones, and social media; when a woman could go full ‘Saturday Night Fever’, even on a Friday, without fear of achieving viral fame the following morning. Friday Night Fever will take you back to a time when women were making the most of their newly-won freedoms by behaving as badly as the boys—sometimes worse—and to hell with the consequences.

Only question is, will Sam beat the odds, come out on top, and get her happily-ever-after, or is she destined to land flat on her back, again?

Friday Night Fever is the first in Andrene Low's seventies-based Excess Baggage Series and is full of bad behaviour, bad language and lots of bad hair. If you like a laugh and enjoyed Grease, Stayin’ Alive or, more recently, That Seventies Show, then you’ll love Andrene’s cutting and irreverent take on this crazy decade.

Originally published as "This Girl's Abroad".

What others are saying:

“What a fun read! The story is unique, and the characters are super likeable. I would have enjoyed hanging out with these ladies in the seventies! The inclusion of dogs and their owners adds to the fun. Sam's romantic storyline is satisfying, and there are plenty of laughs along the way. I'm looking forward to reading more from Andrene Low.”

“Amusing, entertaining read. I would have given it 5 stars if it hadn't ended so suddenly. I was expecting more so was left wondering what happened next. But then I found book 2. Mounted and Hung. I have read this twice now, and salami boy still makes me laugh out loud.”

“I honestly loved this, and never picked the ending! The whole 1970's genre is perfectly captured in these pages, and I found myself lusting after a spa, platforms, and casual attitude to alcohol and sex! Read it and escape to a fantastic world of gold chains, cutesy dog outfits, and lots of very well written sex! Can't wait till the next instalment.”

Brush With Fame

Brush With Fame

Chocolate-box portraits of small yappy dogs. Being blackmailed by a Hooray Henry who’s missing a chin. B&D involving a four-inch paint brush. Will Jennie be able to get even without being locked up?

Rocking up in Englad, Jennie has to fall back on her long-ignored artistic talents to make ends meet. Painting portraits of the spoiled pooches is weird, but pays a lot more than temp office work.

Everything’s rosy until Jennie runs into Rupert Smythe-Brown, an aristocratic prat used to getting his own way, no matter who gets hurt in the process. Jennie’s painted into a corner before something inside her snaps, she turns feral, and Rupert doesn’t know what’s hit him. Well he does, but for once he’s not enjoying it.

Set in late seventies London when punks liked to superglue unfortunates to the walls of The Embankment and the British aristocracy thought nothing of being thrashed for pleasure, Brush With Pain sets a spanking pace. This is the second in Andrene Low’s seventies-based Excess Baggage Series with humour that’s black, irreverent, and cutting. WARNING: This story follows on from Friday Night Fever and does contain a spoiler.

Previously published as "Mounted and Hung".

What others are saying:

“I think I enjoyed this book more than book 1. The characters are awesome, Eadie, Charlie the cat and the fur coated room. And Rupert getting stuck was hilarious. Looking forward to book #3.”

“This is the second book in the Excess Baggage series. And I loved it. There wasn't as much sex as in the first novel in the series, but the sex was replaced with intrigue and manipulative conniving! A great storyline, with some clever twists. Lovely writing, which flowed seam-lessly across the pages. The characters are strong, and it’s refreshing to see strong female characters instead of simpering weak boy-obsessed girls. Set in the 1970s in London, I loved reading about places I could recognise. The attention to detail is extreme, and I love that in a book. Looking forward to reading the next one in the series - Screwed for Money.”

“Loved the book, the second in this series. Excellent writing and plot! A must read.”

Strapped For Cash

Strapped For Cash

Historic art thefts and forgeries. Blackmail capable of bringing down a government. Slap and tickle that could prove fatal. Will Brenda ever make a living that doesn’t involve crusty old men?

Since puberty, Brenda has never had any issues with money. She’s always been more than well cared for by the old guys she’s latched onto. She provides the company and kudos; they provide the cash. Since puberty, Brenda has never had any issues with money. She’s always been more than well cared for by the old guys she’s latched onto. She provides the company and kudos; they provide the cash.

Set in London at the end of the seventies, when the country was grappling with the iron rule of Margaret Thatcher, and the economy was in serious need of some CPR, we see Brenda struggling to sort out her own finances.

The irony that she’s being screwed out of her recently acquired nest egg by a bloke isn’t lost on her. Not keen on a day job, Brenda opens a school for girls, teaching the gentle art of screwing old chaps out of their spare change. She hopes it pans out, because apart from the financial implications, she doesn’t fancy a love life that’s destined to be littered with dodgy prostates and emergency CPR.

Strapped for Cash is the third in Andrene Low’s seventies-based Excess Baggage Series with humour that takes no prisoners—unless that’s what they’re paying for.

Originally published as "Screwed for Money".

What others are saying:

“Loved the whole series - could not put them down! Awesome characters, fantastic storyline. Can't wait for the next one to come out!

“Loved it. Couldn't wait to get to the end. HAD to know what was going to happen. Felt that all three books had finally 'tied' everything up - literally and metaphorically... This would make an amusing television series. The little nods to things from the Seventies was a great touch, there were just enough to make you cast your mind back fondly without overwhelming you with cheesy nostalgia. Not chick lit. Not pure comedy. Not romance. Not crime. But a delicious mixture of all those genres.”

“Loved this series and this book tied up everything nicely. The humor and wit throughout the book was delightful and I was laughing out loud a few times. This writer gets better and better!”
