Venous Ventura is the Gossip Queen, our numero uno gossip columnist. She loves her job and she loves the good life - designer heels, designer restaurants hot scoops.
So how did she end up enrolled in The Source, an exclusive self help course in Byron Bay? Why is she being forced to 'open her soul' to a pack of needy socialites, earnest hippies and disturbed businessmen intent on finding their inner child, Divine truth and ways to make even more cash?
Throw Ruby Starr - celeb fashion designer and Venous's arch enemy - into the mix, along with J.Lo and a swarm of social wannabes, and you've got chaos, razor-sharp satire, tears before bedtime and plenty of black humour.
Ros Reines' debut novel delivers a sparkling snapshot of the secrets and scandals that thrive in the city's social jungle. Of course, its all fiction . .
