The latest assignment for ex-Special Forces soldier turned bodyguard Charlie Fox has her protecting Simone, a newly rich lottery millionairess, and her young daughter, Ella, from the unwanted attentions of an ex-boyfriend. From the outset, however, Simone's refusal to comply with Charlie's security measures puts both mother and child in grave danger, and only Charlie's skill and courage can save them. After a bloody shoot-out in a frozen forest, Charlie is left fighting for her life. As she battles to recover from her injuries, she's still fiercely protective of Ella, even though her actions will catapult her back into the firing line. And this time, Charlie's in no fit state to protect anyone, least of all herself...Fast paced, action-packed and full of twists and turns, "Second Shot" is a gripping, atmospheric thriller you won't dare put down.

She opted out of mainstream education at the age of twelve and wrote her first unpublished novel at the age of fifteen.

Zoe lives in Cumbria, and is married, but would rather have a motorbike than children. Her hobbies include sailing, fast cars, (and faster motorbikes), and reading just about anything she can get her hands on.
Charlie Fox, ex-Special Forces soldier turned bodyguard, has a new client: a lottery millionairess mother who is looking for protection from a nuisance ex. When Simone decides to escape his unwanted attentions and the scrutiny of the press by going to America, it should make Charlie's job easier, what with the main character she is protecting her from out of the picture. But Charlie has some very bad memories from her last time in the US and from the moment they arrive Simone seems to undermine all of Charlie's measures for her security. As the action culminates in a shoot-out in the snow, Charlie struggles to get to the bottom of what is jeopardising her assignment.
