A novel inspired by true events
Nicky, a pushy young radio presenter with a dark past, lands her first big job on a struggling provincial radio station in Peterborough, Cambridgeshire. Marc, a world-weary advertising man, takes pity when no-one responds to her pleas for listeners to text her show. He falls for her and invents a whole cast of characters, a total of 18, and assigns a second-hand mobile to each. The station’s fortunes change dramatically as a result of all the messages they receive from these individuals, not having a clue that they are fictitious. Marc and Nicky, whose ambition has driven her from executive bed to bed, finally make out – but his texts have been so convincing she’s fallen for one of his characters! Nicky then discovers Marc’s deception, and flees. Mortified, Marc is shocked to find how she has been deceiving him all along. Finally he is rescued by one of her broadcasting colleagues. They fall in love, marry, settle down... and Nicky, meanwhile, lands the job of her dreams.
