After the pain of her marriage breakup, Friday Jones makes some major blunders - from a misguided affair to online dating disasters. But can heartbreak actually be the best thing that ever happened to her?
Friday Jones is distraught when Liam, her husband of nearly twenty years and the father of their teenage daughters, tells her their marriage is over.
Still heartbroken many months later, Friday is deeply flattered when a funny, handsome man takes an interest in her. From their very first kiss, Friday finds it difficult to control her attraction for him despite numerous warning signals.
When Friday's best friend, Rosie, discovers Friday is risking further emotional pain she convinces her to end the relationship and join a dating website.
But not long after Friday dives into the world of online romance she takes a couple of wrong turns. Could one of her flings have become a little too obsessed with her? And has the time come to step back and take a good look at where she's going in life?
Funny, poignant and inspiring, It Started with a Kiss is a story about love, desire and how sometimes heartbreak can lead to a much happier life.
Lisa Heidke studied journalism at Queensland University, fled Brisbane and settled in Sydney where she landed a job as an acquisitions editor in book publishing. After a while she swapped book publishing for magazine publishing, working as a feature writer on several national magazines. After many years living in Sydney's inner west, Lisa woke up one morning to find herself living with three children on the North Shore (much to her surprise and sometimes horror). She is the author of Lucy Springer Gets Even, What Kate Did Next, Claudia's Big Break and Stella Makes Good.
