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.

In a word: Tense
