'Dammit,' she realized. 'I think I'm having a nervous breakdown.' Hot-shot magazine editor Lisa Edwards' career is destined for high-rise New York when suddenly she's diverted to low-rise Dublin. But what can she do about it? Ashling Kennedy, Lisa's super-organized assistant, worries about everything from her lack of waist to the lack of men in her life. She's even anxious about a little bit of raw fish . . . Clodagh Kelly is Ashling's best friend and has her prince, her beautiful kids and a lovely house - everything in fact that Ashling ever wanted. She should be - yet, she's not - happy. Three women on the verge of happiness and even closer to complete breakdown. Which way will they fall? 'Keyes has given romantic comedy a much-needed facelift. Chatty and warm-hearted, Keyes' talent is to tell it how it is.' Independent 'Laden with plot twists, jokey asides and nicely turned bits of zeitgeists observational humour.' Guardian 'The hottest young female writer in Britain and the voice of a generation.' Daily Mirror

This Prada-wearing magazine editor thinks her life is over when her "fabulous" new job turns out to be a deportation to Dublin to launch Colleen magazine. The only saving grace is that her friends aren't there to witness her downward spiral. Might her new boss, the disheveled and moody Jack Devine, save her from a fate worse than hell?
