‘Join the group… it’ll change your life forever’
Finn Fitzgerald has walked out on her job in Brussels, her flat, and her cheating boyfriend to move to Hampshire. At 40, she decides it’s about time she took herself in hand and found out what she wants from life.
Moving in with her sister, Finn finds herself a part of an unusual social group – a number of lonely people, of all ages, who meet just for company. She also meets the gorgeous Charlie Stuart.
Soon, Finn and Charlie find themselves drawn into the group’s money-making activities, and love is in the air. That is, until they find out more about the alleged good cause of the fund-raising effort, and Finn finds out Charlie’s secret…
