Love, Lies & Records

“Who knew registrars were so exciting?”

Love, Lies & Records follows registrar Kate Dickinson as she tries to juggle her personal life with the daily dramas of births, marriages and deaths at the local registry office. After a dream promotion to the top job of superintendent, she finds herself increasingly torn by the endless responsibilities of being a modern working mother – her daughter’s hiding suspicious messages, her son hates her because she’s bought him the wrong trainers and now her stepson’s turned up unannounced.

As Kate tries to hold her work life and relationship together, things go from complicated to impossible when a disgruntled colleague threatens to expose a secret from her past. With everything she’s worked for in jeopardy, Kate’s dream promotion quickly turns into a nightmare and she’s horrified to realise that it’s not just her job that’s on the line.
