Sarah Campbell told one tiny white lie.
The tech giant she works for moves her to a small Scottish island for six months to work on a classified project. She can’t tell anyone why she’s leaving, and lying to placate her overprotective mother is the only choice. Sarah’s fallen in love, she’s moving in with her girlfriend, she couldn’t be happier… She can pretend her dream woman exists for six months, right?

Then Sarah’s mother suddenly decides to visit and meet her daughter’s wonderful new partner. With little option, Sarah begs Pippa to be her fake girlfriend. Only the more time they spend faking it, the less pretend it feels.
