How to Marry Harry
Could Harry Styles be the perfect man for Jo’s daughter Bayley? Surely he would be, if Jo could only wrangle a meeting.
When Jo coerces her sister Bobbi into a trip to the UK to follow musician Harry Styles, along with a cardboard cutout of her daughter in a red bikini, she wasn’t planning on everything turning to custard. Even though when it comes to Jo and Bobbi, that’s usually exactly what happens. Divorced and lonely, has Jo become so invested in her daughter’s future she hasn’t even considered there could still be love out there for herself? And will she ever learn that you can never just have ‘one cocktail’?
Bobbi thinks they’re going to one concert and then to Scotland to scatter their beloved late uncle's ashes. She’s just along for the ride but will her efforts help or hinder Jo’s plans?
When Jo and Bobbi meet Adam, a teenager bunking off school and also following Harry, helping him reconnect
with his father could lead Jo in
an altogether unexpected direction.
WOULD YOU GO ON ROAD TRIP WITH A VIRTUAL STRANGER?
Two mums, one crappy van and a chance to relive their youth - what could possibly go wrong?
Middle aged mothers, Anna and Faith meet at a drunken student flat party and find themselves the reluctant owners of a converted pink plumbing van.
Looking from the outside, you’d never know Anna was lost. On paper she has the big house, fancy clothes and flashy car but in reality she feels unfulfilled, her marriage is a sham and she has no idea who she is anymore.
Faith grew up in a religious community but hasn’t been back since she left in disgrace years ago. She lives a more simple life with her husband, children and her job as a social worker.
Despite barely knowing each other and seemingly having little in common, they set off on an impromptu road trip of the South Island with nothing more than a vague plan and a change of underwear.
Faith wants to reunite with her brother - if the van makes it that far - and Anna may have the chance at a new start, or even a new love.
