'At 28 years of age, Louise finds herself the last of the girls in her family to have a family of her own - and she is the eldest! Finding herself excluded from family events, she decides to develop other friendships, and her career, and look for a nice man.
But her boss has other ideas and does not see a promotion in Louise's future. And her friends don't seem any closer to achieving grown-up goals than she is. In fact, none of them even want to get married!
There are three men who interest Louise. Gorgeous Gordon from Sydney; cranky Chris at work; and alluring Aidan from - the "other side"! Louise is an accountant with the Australian Tax Office while Aidan is an accountant in a public accounting firm. Professionally they are adversaries so any alliance looks doomed.
While Louise is trying to sort out her life, the people around her are having problems of their own. The family is forced to unite for a meal and the Christmas of 1988 is set to be a memorable one!' (Publisher's blurb)
