»Stella has been my best friend for ages – since our schooldays. A friendship like that lasts a lifetime, so they say. Still, this may well be the last time I call her my friend. Stella has a husband. Stella has a house in Gruenwald. Stella doesn’t have a job, because she’s married. Stella has no worries. Until yesterday. She left her husband because he’s got another woman. Since then she’s been living at my place.«
Thirty-two-year-old Maya already has enough problems of her own when her rich suburbanite friend Stella lands on her doorstep with a 10-piece Louis Vuitton luggage set. Having recently broken up with her former boss, who has returned to the safe haven of his marriage and left her in the lurch with a far too expensive apartment and a mongrel called Gonzo, Maya is just managing to keep her head above water by means of two part-time jobs and a well-heeled tenant. In the mornings she works in the agency run by her ex-boss Tommy, who just can’t keep his hands off her, and in the afternoon she works as assistant to Oliver, the lovable vet: the most he does is to tousle her hair occasionally and probably thinks she’s a golden retriever.
But when Stella starts off on a campaign of vengeance against her cheating husband, Maya also embarks on a course of extreme flirting. Together these two very different friends stumble into an adventure where they find illegal dogfights, an angry Mafioso, a carpenter with nine fingers and even a sheikh. Is he the answer to all their problems? Hardly. But finally all the couples who should be together end up together and readers will be in floods of tears … of laughter.
