A warm, witty and wise debut about the ups and downs of life as a TV presenter Christie Lynch is a journalist and single mother of two when she gets a lucky break -an appearance on daytime TV talk show, Tart Talk. Spotted by hugely successful talent agent, Julia Keen, Christie's life changes in an instant when Julia secures her a high-profile presenting job. Soon the nation's new sweetheart, Christie can't help but love her new job and, for the first time in years, she can mend her leaking roof and buy her kids, Libby and Freddie, a few treats. But as her career soars to new heights, Christie's forced to spend more and more time away from her kids and from Richard -- the gorgeous single dad she recently met at the school gate. Can Christie find a way to balance her role as a mother with her increasingly demanding job? And will she make it in the cut-throat world of TV? Whatever happens, Christie's going to give it all she's got!
