About the book
'So it's final then, you're not taking James to Melbourne?' Liza asked.
'Are you kidding? Taking a man to Melbourne would be like taking a sandwich to a smorgasbord.'
Peta Tully has found her Mr Right . the only trouble is, she's not sure she's ready to settle down. Not just yet, anyway - so when she's offered a twelve-month contract interstate which just might win her the job of her dreams, she puts her Sydney life on hold, packs her bags and jumps on a plane, leaving her doting boyfriend behind. Peta takes a voluntary vow of celibacy, but sticking to it proves harder than she imagines.
This is Anita Heiss's second book about Peta, Alice, Liza and Dannie, four deadly, desirable and dynamic thirty-something chicks from Sydney's eastern beaches who first appeared in Not Meeting Mr Right.
