Navigating modern romance is sometimes like floundering. When Julie left her decade-long marriage in her mid-thirties, she never expected to have to navigate the murky waters of the 'dating scene' again - let alone, the 'modern dating scene'. Caught off-guard in a whirlwind email exchange, Julie finds herself falling for a man she's never met, thousands of miles away in Toronto. Fuelled by their budding romance over text and video calls, Julie vows to change her life before they meet at a conference in Montreal. With fifty pounds to lose, Julie sets a course for something that always eluded her: true love and a fit body. Before long, Julie's heart is thrashing through the sea of emotions and circumstances that accompany new love after a stale marriage. While learning to navigate these new waters, she's still dealing with her judgemental ex-husband, his new girlfriend, raising her pre-teen daughter and staving off her own insecurities along with her cravings for carbohydrates and cheese. Always on hand with dating advice and wine, Julie's best friends support her as she discovers dating in the digital age; finding out the hard way that she doesn't kw how to interpret text messages, how to flirt back with the handsome cop at the gym, or even what she's looking at in the lingerie aisle! Will Julie find what was eluding her? Or will it end worse than it began?
