Journalist and single mum, Rebecca Pearce is clever, sexy and sharp and on the lookout for a man. But there’s a snag. Life in the shires is dullsville.com with no decent guys in sight. On offer is Charles Smythe-Bothum Wethem. He’s loaded, but a complete DUD – as in dull, ugly and desperate. Or Mervin Purvis. He’s an amorous, overweight “spam man” she meets on a blind date as a decoy for her married friend Delia who’s bedding his cousin, Toy Boy.“He’s got nice eyes,” says Delia.“Yes,” replies Rebecca, “for a walrus.”Life revs up when she goes speed dating and meets Tor, but there’s a hitch as she clocks her ex, Jake, drooling over her friend Konnie. Meanwhile, hunky Australian, Scott Henderson, walks into her office and invites her to cover a juicy scandal, arousing more than her journalistic instincts. Rebecca is set on a course to create emotional havoc and social upheaval as she tries to decide which man is ‘the one’ – or if she really needs a man at all.
