Fall Girl by Toni Jordan

After her success with Addition (2008), Toni Jordan is back with a second novel, Fall Girl, an attempt, according to Jordan, to recreate on the page the romantic screen comedies of the 1940s, 1950s, and 1960s. There are echoes of the zoology professor in search of million-dollar funding in Bringing Up Baby, the steamy flirtations in a luxury location of To Catch a Thief, and the witty repartee and double-crossing of Charade, three films that Jordan has cited as inspiration.
