Krissy Nicholson's life as an international Aid Worker and her (seemingly) never-ending search for Mr Right in some of the world's most dangerous disaster zones.
Set in humanitarian disaster zones around the world, Tsunami and the Single Girl is the story of Krissy Nicholson's journey to become an aid worker and her (seemingly) never-ending search to find a soul mate.
As a free-spirited traveller, Krissy--now almost thirty--needs her life to start taking shape. So how does a wild night on a dance floor in Vietnam land her a sought-after role in Oxfam working in emergency relief? And how does the excess of the expatriate scene, a string of Mr Wrongs and failed romances lead to self-discovery and ultimately self-fulfilment?
Against the backdrop of adrenalin-fuelled disaster response, Krissy begins to understand the power of the human spirit in the face of adversity. Whether co-ordinating emergency relief work in-the-field, or trying to find love in all the wrong places, Krissy takes us on a heartfelt and surprising adventure.
