A delightful comedy to devour immediately!

Rest assured, there is no real T-Rex in this story (well, not quite …). However, there is Felix the paleontologist. His grandmother orders him to leave the woman he lives with, in order to face his worst fears, one by one. If he succeeds, he will be entitled to a huge surprise. There is Olive, who is about to get married and who announces to her family that she and her fiancé don’t want to have children. This leads to indignation and conspiracies among the mothers-in-law. There’s Ava, seller of luxury shoes, who receives a priceless jewel from one of her millionaire-clients. The gem is so precious that she feels rich enough to immediately leave this job she hated so much. And there is Tom, a disillusioned and unhappy cop, and terribly romantic. All these characters know each other, meet up with each other, and invite us to join them…
