32-year-old Holly Parker is a corporate investigator, which is not to be confused with a private eye. She does not rifle through underwear drawers (unless it's a new boyfriend), take dodgy photos (unless it's a long-standing boyfriend), or dress in dirty raincoats (unless it's a weird boyfriend). No, Holly checks out the backgrounds of candidates for some of the top jobs in the City. Yet while she helps countless high profile companies to find their Mr Right For The Job, her personal life is littered with romantic disasters, men who dump her using the same tired old cliche, 'It's not you, it's me!' Holly doesn't believe them. So when she meets sexy Carl Lawson, she determines not to repeat past mistakes, but first she must discover what those mistakes were. Then - Yes! - she can turn herself into the Perfect Girlfriend. Or can she?
