From the back of the book:
When journalist and inner-city girl Lynne Minion decides to become a humanitarian, she soon finds herself arriving in East Timor with a clutch of duty-free cosmetics, a shoe fetish and a tiara...

In heat and humidity that has make-up sliding off her face, it's a shock to discover Timorese haute couture is the covered-up look - in lilac.

It's a shame, too, because patrolling this tropical paradise are thousands of hunky, sex-starved and mostly Latino peacekeepers. Ah, yes, it's a male-to-female ratio that gives 'foreign affairs' a whole new meaning: but not even Lynne imagined she'd find love among the dust, goats and poverty of East Timor.

From chardonnay-soaked nights on oceanfront dance floors, to brushes with guns and machetes... from the glittering independence celebrations, to the frustrations of working for the UN in the country's brand-new bureaucracy, Hello Missus is a rollercoaster of often hilarious, sometimes poignant, always revealing and certainly controversial takes on what really happens under the covers of a peacekeeping mission.
