Blurb: Eva Kennedy is in a rut. After years of working at her uncle’s Dublin delicatessen, her artistic aspirations have slipped by the wayside and her latest relationship has fizzled. Whatever happened to the Eva who was going to be someone? Hoping to shake things up, Eva takes a break and ventures to Australia, to visit an old friend who, for fun, gives Eva an exciting new identity. Eva is now exotic and adventurous and… not herself.
