For sexy thirty something widow Nikki, a freelance reporter, life is pretty much on track. She has some good friends, a great job, and no money worries. So what if her heart is a little bruised. When an assignment to cover a children’s charity do in London comes up she leaps at the chance to rub shoulders with a few celebrities. Here she meets Simon, a star from a TV soap. It’s lust at first sight, and Nikki quickly wrangles a job with the charity, hoping to catch his eye. Her new commute quickly becomes enlivened by a series of entangled affairs ‘of the heart’. There’s Richard, a member of station staff, who’s ‘slow and subtle attention’ entices Nikki into foreign adventures but it seems he’s a long way from all he appears. There’s the gorgeous Luca, her new colleague, with his smouldering Italian good looks who is well on the way to derailing all her good intentions. And finally there’s Simon, who seems to be emerging as a narcissistic man, far more in love with himself than with any of women that have fallen for his undoubted charms. With an assortment of warm friends, complete with ready shoulders, wicked humour and endless advice, Nikki’s travels on the rails are an adventure dotted with sex, celebrity and some hard choices. Will she find happiness in the end, will her heart be mended and her life, at last, complete?
