Laura Gibson is a big-city lawyer who makes a seachange and moves to the small town of Pearl Bay for a new life. Pearl Bay has been almost completely cut off from the outside world since the Port Deakin Bridge was closed 5 years previously but most of the residents like it this way. The town's residents, however, are stranger than the cityfolk and Laura soon learns that the town lives on friendship and gossip.
After three years as Pearl Bay's magistrate, it is clear Laura's decision to leave the corporate world behind her was a good one.
Despite the fact she has remained endearingly neurotic, there is no denying she has become a better mother, chef...and calligrapher.
Yet, for all the effort Laura has put into tidying her world, her love life is still the horrible mess it has always been...
