- Synopsis / Plot
- A young newspaper writer named Tamara Drew returns to her hometown in the English countryside, where her childhood home is being prepped for sale. This is the contemporary tale of a Londoner returning home to the country - and to her past. Tamara, once a shy, ugly teenager, has reinvented herself as a smouldering femme fatale. When she returns to her old village to sell her late mother's house, she is barely recognisable to the locals - or to her old flame Andy - and she kick-starts a trail of envy, lust, scandal and gossip wherever she goes. But has she really forgotten who she is - and who she loved? Tamara is the ultimate modern girl; but for all her independence, ambition and sex appeal it's actually the vulnerable, shy fish-out-of-water underneath that make her story funny, moving and very human.
