Molly Harper is the manager of Ireland's only dedicated romance bookshop - 'Happily Ever After'. She can't stand Milo Jones, the super-smooth new owner but he does have a rather attractive son, Sam. When Milo decides he wants to change the bookshop into a highbrow literary one, Molly, with the help of her friends, must fight back if she wants to save the store.

Her best friend, Paige Brady, local County Councillor and member of the popular 'Happily Ever After Book Club' has problems of her own. She has just launched a general election campaign and is astonished when another woman, Annette Higgins, starts to attack her in a very personal way. But Paige is determined to stay in the race.

Can you judge a man by the shoes they wear? Kate Bowan, another Book Club afficionado, and Molly's housemate thinks so. Shop assistant in the trendy Burnaby designer shoe shop, 'Baroque' by day, she runs the popular dummy dating service 'Test-Crash Dates' by night. But one particular client is proving to be more than a handful.

In the Irish village of Burnaby, life is about to change for three very different women.
