Would you trade in your ex for the chance to find the perfect upgrade?

Catherine's ex-husband and business partner drops a bombshell over their Chardonnay. He’s getting remarried. Catherine has bras that are older than his girlfriend and now he’s selling his half of their romantic upcycling business to the girl. Worse, she thinks she’s going to run Catherine’s beloved company.

Meanwhile, Rachel’s biggest romantic mistake sits next to her at work. They’re friends again after the relationship went disastrously wrong, but they’re pitted against each other to win their firm’s biggest architecture project. So when she joins Catherine’s website, RecycLove.com, where everyone upcycles an ex for the chance of an upgrade, she knows just who she’s going to trade in.

And Sarah can’t be bothered tottering around in painful shoes for another pointless date. Staying home is easier, if a bit lonely sometimes. Besides, her family circumstances don’t leave a lot of free time. She reluctantly joins Catherine’s dating site with Rachel, but as a minor makeover turns into a complete overhaul, will her newfound popularity be worth the sacrifices she’s making?

Sometimes looks can be deceiving

Annabel’s not surprised when nobody recognizes her at her 10 year reunion. The spotty fat teen nicknamed AnnaBall by the school bullies is long gone. But standing on the edge of the popular crowd, she still feels like that girl. That is, until Jack, her teen crush, starts flirting with her.

It’s just a bit of fun at first, letting Jack believe she’s Christy. After all, he was nuts about her before she said au revoir to England. And when he asks Annabel out, the fun becomes something even more interesting. The more they date the deeper they fall for each other. So what if Annabel has to fib a little to keep up the fa├žade?

As the lies start compounding, and she realizes that they’re falling in love, she has to tell him who she really is. But she’ll lose the love of her life if she does.

Perfect Girl
The hilarious tale about having it all, whether you want it or not

Carol knows exactly how she got into such a mess. She’s spent her whole life bending over backward for the people she loves. It’s who she’s always been: the perfect daughter, friend, sister, girlfriend. But she’s starting to suspect that nobody appreciates the sacrifices she makes.

Her mum keeps treating her like the family’s personal assistant, her sister has just saddled her with impossible wedding planning and her boyfriend has her single-handedly running their relationship.

At work, she’s dodging handsy clients while everyone else gets credit for her work. There are only so many hours in a day and none of them seem to be hers!

Something’s got to give, and for once it won’t be Carol…


Christmas Carol
One winter wedding, two happy couples, three ex-boyfriends. And a very uncomfortable weekend.

Carol hates Christmas. Being recently dumped, she’s not crazy about  weddings either. So her sister Marley’s nuptials, over the Christmas weekend, are making her positively Scrooge-like. When she arrives for the weekend at the stately home in rural Scotland to find her three ex-boyfriends in attendance, Carol has no choice but to face her ghosts to discover what really happened in those relationships, learning a lot about herself in the process. As the snow falls outside and the fire crackles in the hearth, might one of the wedding guests become the harbinger of Christmases to come?


Life Change
What would you change the second time around?

There’ve been a few changes in Bea’s life lately, starting with accidentally ending her decade-long relationship over a Friday night takeaway. Next goes her flat and then her job. Single, unemployed and living in a rented room, Bea is flying without a safety net for the first time in thirty-eight years.

So what is she supposed to do now that she’s rewound her life to start again?

She has no idea how to date anymore. It’s all gone online and with so much competition at the click of a button, her aging bosom might not be up to the job. People are waxing in places she can’t even reach and posting red carpet-worthy selfies every ten seconds.

She used to dream of a musical career but is only getting gigs at corporate away days or as background music for drunks in pubs. And her ex is being a hundred times more charming in trying to win her back than he bothered to be when he had her.

Maybe grasping life with both hands won’t be so easy after all…

Can she really become who she wants to be?


Single in the City
One girl, one city, one disaster waiting to happen

It’s all going to be fine.

There’s just one little problem for 26-year-old American Hannah when she lands in London with all her worldly possessions: She's up to her eyeballs in culture shock before her jet lag has even worn off. Plus, she's got no job, no friends and no idea how she's supposed to build the life she's dreaming of. Buying a one-way ticket might have been a little rash.

Armed with little more than her enthusiasm, she charges headlong into the city, baffling the locals in her pursuit of a new life, new love and sense of herself.


Misfortune Cookie
Would you move 6,000 miles to be with the love of your life?

Plane ticket bought... Check!
Worldly belongings packed... Check!
Clue about what I'm doing... If only!

Unfortunately Hannah's move isn't going terribly well. What was supposed to be the start of a wonderful new life in Hong Kong with Sam is turning into a move to Hong Kong to spend occasional weekends with Sam, when he can get away from his work assignment on the opposite side of the South China Sea. Now Hannah can't help but wonder if she's made the biggest mistake of her life.


Twelve Days to Christmas
What if his proposal had an expiration date?

Hannah's in a bit of a pickle. In twelve days she flies from Hong Kong to the US with Sam, where he's finally going to meet her parents... and ask to marry her. The problem is, she feels panicky every time she contemplates matrimony. Which is perfectly normal, isn't it? Isn't it?! She has no idea but she's got to find out before he pops the question... because she's not 100% sure she's going to say yes. Which will make for a very uncomfortable family holiday. He's got to ask her before they go.

As time ticks down to their flight, Hannah realizes that her own secrets are threatening their future. Before she can be happy with Sam, she's got a lot to learn about herself in the twelve days to Christmas.
