A stunning bestseller from the superstar of women's fiction.

'Dammit,' she realized. 'I think I'm having a nervous breakdown . . .'

On the up magazine editor Lisa Edwards' career is destined for high-rise New York when suddenly she's diverted to low-rise Dublin. But what the hell can she do about it?

Ashling Kennedy, Lisa's super-organized assistant, is good at worrying. Too good. She's even terrified of a little bit of raw fish . . .

Clodagh Kelly is Ashling's best friend and has done everything right - has in fact got everything that Ashling ever wanted. And yet, she's still unsatisfied.

Three women searching for happiness but if they're not careful they'll each be heading for a fall . . .
