Not exactly what you'd call a goddess of cutting-edge culture, Lindsey Miller is shocked when she's offered the uberhip job of writing for The Pulse, a newsletter that tracks white-hot trends in everything from fashion to cosmetics to entertainment. Before long, Lindsey finds herself on a whirlwind bicoastal romp as she jet-sets between New York ad Los Angeles, fumbling to uncover what's cool today and what will be the next big thing tomorrow. The grit and glamour of Manhattan are electrifying, and so is Victor Ragsdale, the slick Wall Street broker who charms Lindsey with his street-smart savvy. But the warmth and sunshine of L.A. are bliss, and so is Danny Wynn, the dreamy blond surfer who sweeps her into his strong, suntanned arms. Lindsey's two lives are both so exciting - and both so different. But disaster strikes when her evil trend-spotting partner begins to expose Lindsey for what she really is: tragically unhip and only one dirty martini away from being found out and fired.
