Five years after leaving university, Lizzie Jordan considers herself one of life’s failures.

Unlike her highflying friends, Lizzie works as a typist, shares a grotty flat and ‘makes do’ with an unexciting boyfriend.

But she has a secret love – Brian, a handsome American she dated at university, five years ago. In her emails she pretends her life is a whirl of extravagant parties and million-pound business deals.

Then one day, Brian announces he’s coming to stay! Lizzie’s secret life is about to be rumbled unless she comes up with a cunning plan. But even the most best-laid plans have a habit of going horribly wrong…
