When London editor Georgia Abbott comes to Sydney to work on Glow, a glossy woman's magazine, she has high hopes for a bright new start. Leaving behind a broken heart (her own) and a philandering ex-fiance, she's looking forward to immersing herself in the Tim Tam-eating sisterhood of woman's mags. Not to mention being whisked off into the dusty Australian sunset by a suntanned, Akubra-hatted fantasy man.

At first, things seem promising, as Georgia is swept up in a whirl of A-list parties, dancing, dinners, and debauchery. But while Australian water may go down the plughole the other way, Australian men are starting to look all too familiar. And then there's the chaotic bunch of women Georgia works with on Glow, to whom every relationship disaster is a potential article, not least of all Georgia's, whose quest for love is fast becoming headline material. What to do when all the blokes you've found are either gay, married, unfaithful, unable, or just plain unworthy?

Listener Opinions

    " Honestly one of the best books to pass the time. I'm not normally a RomCom reader but Maggie Alderson is hilarious. This book is fast paced and I didn't want to put it down. Granted its no Oscar Wilde - but it's damn good. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Georgia Smith | 1/6/2014

    " Average. Easy to get into and follow, some cute characters, but a typical chick-lit. Not adding anything new to the world of literature, sorry Maggie! This is the type of book you read when on a long plane flight - simple, easy and cheerful. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kate Moffatt | 1/6/2014

    " not a bad book - enjoyed it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cathy McGough | 12/27/2013

    " A different Sydney than I live in - entertaining never-the-less! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katie | 12/1/2013

    " What a fluff novel! It was definitely fun hearing all that Brit/Aussie slang...but so much drugs and sex going on! The ending had a surprising twist and it was just a fun read. Not a lot of plot...but you need that every now and then! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Narnia | 11/25/2013

    " What a great read. I loved all the characters because they were so alive and not rich and distant like some of Ms. Anderson's other novels. Good fun with a serious undertone. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lauren | 10/20/2013

    " Not fantastic literature but a fun beach read -- written from the perspective of a young British woman living in Sydney, Australia--any young woman who's lived there can relate. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Wendy | 9/19/2013

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Margo | 4/22/2013

    " This book was given to me. I'm not really a fan of the Chick Lit sort of books. I did try to read a few chapters, but it was hard for me to become interested and I didn't finish reading it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rebekah | 3/8/2013

    " It was OK.. i didn't relate to her at all though and i didn't like the ending there were a few twist's though which was the only just enough to keep me reading the whole thing "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Emotional Cynic | 3/6/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Robyn Drummond | 9/26/2012

    " It was good. Witty and gives an excellent insight into another world. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Polly-alida | 7/14/2012

    " Definitely fun and trashy summer chick lit. Can't say it was the best writing in the world, but still, it was a fun summer read. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Flevy Crasto | 3/23/2012

    " This book was hilarious and the ending nearly made me cry. I am so envious of this story because this is exactly what I want to do. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Daph (Lvngbooks) | 11/2/2011

    " Great and easy, hylarious read. I really enjoyed reading it. I borrowed it from the library and couldn't remember the name of the book anymore, but found it after a long search and now own this book! It was still fun to read the second time :) "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sary Fairchild | 8/10/2011

    " Blimey. this book is bloody awful. If it didn't get better at the end it would have definitely have been a one. Lots of sex, lots of drugs, little substance. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Midstar | 5/4/2011

    " It wasn't one of her best. It just..i don't know. I wasn't intrested in it. I didn't CARE what happned next, and i thought it would get better because it's MEG CABOT! but, unfortunatley it didn't. It makes me sad :( "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jud | 4/3/2011

    " An enjoyable read with some interesting characters. However, I found the ending rather sudden and unconvincing. Perhaps the author didn't want the ending to be predictable but the alternative didn't ring true. "

    " Trashy but enjoyable chick-lit. Easy to read, little to think about and not particularly memorable but good fun nonetheless.
    Recommended for reading on holidays or when you just want a light and easy read with a happy ending (as most books of this genre tend to have). "
