AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'When an internet love affair goes wrong, Rose straightens her hair and boosts her bra size - but she discovers it takes more than a makeover to find the courage to be her real self.

'After 28-year-old schoolteacher Rose Butler flies to the other side of the world to meet the hot Australian guy she met online, their romantic reunion doesn't go quite as planned. Stranded in Sydney, and too humiliated to return home to San Francisco, Rose decides to stay. She aims to shed her old image, and reinvent herself into someone tougher, smarter - maybe even wilder.

'Help with her makeover comes from three unexpected new friends - Carla, the born-again-virgin beauty editor; Sasha, the out-of-rehab heiress; and Kelly, the high-flying model.

'And then there are the men she meets - sexy bad-boy photographer Elliot; and Luke, the handsome doctor who may not be as straightforward as he appears. It might just be worth risking her heart again...

'But as Rose throws herself headlong into her new life, she gets tripped up by a painful family secret and unresolved problems from her past. She's forced to question her beliefs about love and loyalty, old mistakes and new choices, and the bonds of both family and friendship.

'By reinventing herself, can Rose discover who she really is and face a fulfilling new future?'
