Jane Boyers, sleek, gorgeous and highly successful TV executive, barely has time to eat and sleep, let alone keep up with old friends. Especially ones like Miranda, who has rejected glamorous New York in favour of settling with the love of her life in rural Ireland. But when Jane's career comes crashing down, her panicked response is to jump straight on a plane to Dublin and throw herself on Miranda's mercy. Life there is definitely not what Jane is used to, and the culture shock goes both ways. When she gets herself mixed up with an independent theatre company, her no nonsense American approach gets right up the natives' noses - particularly the rather attractive nose of Shay Gallagher, the enthusiastic, if hopelessly disorganised director. And sparks really fly when Shay and Jane are forced to take the lead roles in the company's first production...
