A young journalist moves to Sydney from London to nurse a broken heart, and is swept up into a whirlwind of romance and intrigue.

When London editor Georgia Abbott comes to Sydney to work on Glow, a glossy woman's magazine, she has high hopes for a bright new start. Leaving behind a broken heart (her own) and a philandering ex-fiance, she's look forward to immersing herself in the Tim Tam-eating sisterhood of woman's mags. No to mention being whisked off into the dusty Australian sunset by a suntanned, Akubra-hatted fantasy man. At first, things seem promising, as Georgia is swept up in a whirl of A-list parties, dancing, dinners and debauchery. But while Australian water may go down the plughole the other way, Australian men are starting to look all too familiar. And then there's the chaotic bunch of woman Georgia works with on Glow, to whom every relationship disaster is a potential article, not least of all Georgia's, whose quest for love is fast becoming headline material. What to do when all the blokes you've found are either gay, married, unfaithful, unable or just plain unworthy?
