Ali Hughes wants more from life.
More than her dead-end job with the boss from hell, and her pokey flat, better suited to a college student. More than her volatile family and overbearing mother, and her on-off relationship with the sexy
but ambitious Detective Dave O’Connor.
While her mother is eager for Ali to settle down and marry a doctor or an architect, Ali just wants to grab her boring life by the neck and give it a good shake to wake it up a little.
Flitting from course to course and job to job, never quite fulfilling her potential, Ali yearns for excitement and adventure. Her best friend, the down-to-earth Maggie, calls it ‘chasing rainbows’.
But Ali is about to find out that rainbows are elusive by nature and the pots of gold found at the end of them often contain the one thing you least expect.
