At thirty-three years of age Maddy O'Toole is stranded on Cold Comfort Farm, deep in rural Ireland, with a monosyllabic husband, two children, and her mother. The only bright spot in her day is the American television soap she's addicted to.
Then she discovers that her long-lost sister Gloria is living in Hollywood. No sooner has Gloria invited her than Maddy's on the plane. But what she envisages as a short break ends up changing her life.
For when she arrives at Gloria's hopelessly luxurious Bel Air home she falls helplessly in lust with her sister's gorgeous and gentle actor boyfriend, Carlos, none other than the star of her favourite soap.
It's not going to endear her to her sister, by Maddy can't bring herself to contemplate going home . . .
Warm, entertaining and indulgent, 'Maddy Goes to Hollywood' is a gloriously escapist romantic comedy with an unforgettable heroine.
