MOLLY Greene is happily married to Dan, but the pressure from Dan to start a family is causing problems. Molly isn’t ready to take the plunge into motherhood, and it’s creating an enormous amount of tension in the relationship.
Mollie’s gal pals Joss and Bec provide unlimited support as only best friends can, and when Bec b r e a ks t he news t hat Mollie’s ex-boyfriend Leo tried to ‘ friend’ her on Facebook, Mollie is intrigued.
Leo can’t get in touch with her because he doesn’t know her married name, but Mollie is tempted to see how the love of her life has fared.
According to Bec, Leo is married as well, so it would be harmless enough, right? Mollie sends Leo a ‘ friend request’, and when he responds quickly, she soon realises from her secretive behaviour that she has crossed an unwritten line.
Events quickly spiral out of control, leaving author Lucy Dawson to deftly steer this excellent emotional rollercoaster.
