    Cassie s'est installée trop jeune en épousant son premier petit ami sérieux. À présent, dix ans plus tard, il l'a trahie et elle est brisée. Cassie se retrouve avec un mariage en lambeaux, sans carrière ni foyer. Il va falloir qu'elle décide quelle sera sa vie, et pour commencer qu'elle découvre qui elle est vraiment pour pouvoir trouver sa place.

    Cassie expérimente alors une idée un peu folle : quitter sa vie protégée dans la campagne écossaise pour tester d'autres vies pendant un an. Elle va passer une saison avec chacune de ses meilleures amies dans les villes les plus glamour du monde : New York, Paris et Londres. Échangeant grouse moelleuse et cheveux frisottant pour un régime pauvre en glucides et une coupe au balayage très chic, Cassie tente de retrouver dans chaque ville la vie qu'elle était censée mener, et avec elle, l'homme qui était censé l'aimer depuis toujours.

    Une histoire très romanesque aux rebondissements réjouissants !

Pour le confectionner, Laura devra enquêter ! Au cours de ses recherches, elle se lie d'amitié avec chacun... et se rapproche de Rob.
    En tâchant d'en apprendre plus sur l'énigmatique Cat, qui semble si parfaite, Laura, troublée, se rend compte que la jeune femme cache peut-être bien son jeu. Derrière le glamour et le romantisme apparents, l'amour est-il vraiment là où on l'attend ?
