What a difference a day makes…

Nell Sullivan has always been known as ‘Miss Five-Year Plan’. But when she finds herself jobless and newly single on the same day, Nell decides it is time to stop planning and start taking chances.

Nell blows her redundancy cheque on a trip of lifetime to a place where anything is possible – San Francisco. There she meets a host of colourful characters, including the intriguing and gorgeous Max. Very soon the city begins to feel like Nell’s second home.

But when it’s time to return to London, will she leave the ‘new Nell’ behind? And can the magic of San Francisco continue to sparkle thousands of miles away?

(From the author: Areas of SF covered: Union Square, Fisherman’s Wharf, Ghirardelli Square, The Embarcadero, Mission District, Golden Gate Park, Crissy Field, Chinatown, Financial District, Alamo Square and Park, the Presidio and Haight-Ashbury where most of the action takes place.)
