Police woman Sandy Osborne

I’ve been reading a lot of dark psychological thrillers recently and Sandy Osborne’s ‘Girl Cop in Trouble’ was just what I needed to lift my mood. I already liked the lead character, Cop Sally more and more as I read about her initiation into the 1990’s police force in ‘Girl Cop’, the first of the series. In ‘Girl Cop in Trouble’ she has gained a confidence in both her personal and professional life, which she certainly needs as she carves her way through the challenges of her work and her relationships.

Many of my favourite characters return from ‘Girl Cop’ but the fact that this is a sequel never gets in the way as everything is explained as it happens. I loved the insight I had into the life of a female police officer in the 1990’s. It’s worth reading for this alone. But like recent WPC TV programmes such as ‘WPC 56’ this is a great romantic comedy with plenty of police jokes, but with a story line that reminds you that policing can be harrowing, dangerous and poignant.
