Three women rent a holiday house in Cornwall for the summer. Each brings with her children, baggage (in every sense) and expectations...Imogen, who organised the holiday, is frighteningly capable and a bit of a control freak. With three children who are at the centre of her world, she's determined that this holiday will be perfect. But is Imogen's tidy life quite as happy as it seems?Sophie is Imogen's oldest friend, dating back to the days when they would chat long after lights out at their Home Counties boarding school. Sophie knows she should be feeding her offspring organic couscous, but they love McDonald's apple pies too much - and where's the harm in that? But is there more to Sophie than dogged loyalty to her rather overbearing old mate? And then there's Jo, an acquaintance of Sophie's roped in at the last minute when the first choice of housemate pulled out. An east London GP and single mother, and very easy-going with her son, she appears to be the polar opposite to Imogen.A group holiday seemed such a good idea back in January...

The results are quite something. . .Izzie and Maddy would never normally have met - one bohemian and free thinking, the other materialistic and designer obsessed - weren't it for their respective husband's careers. Dumped in the countryside, both feeling like a fish out of water, their world's collide at an event. Here, they discover a mutually deep appreciation for life in London - and an equally deep hatred for women's lunches. Soon, tragedy strikes, and Maddy has to find a way to make money fast. Together, they launch a company from their kitchen which proves to be more successful than they ever could have imagined. But when the media spotlight turns on them, the pair are forced to walk away from all they hold dear and embrace a lifestyle they hate. The question is - how far will they be willing to go?

Every woman's secret desire...is to have a 'her indoors' to do the chores.'What you need,' said Saffron, pouring Alex another glass of wine, 'is someone to take away your worries, someone you can rely on, someone to deal with all the boring details.''But I've got a bloke already,' protested Alex.'No, no!' replied Saffron. 'I mean, what you need is a WIFE.'On the surface, Alex Hill is every inch the polished high-flying career woman. But that just means she's rushed off her feet with barely enough time to take out the bins, let alone pull together an amazing product launch. Then she discovers her Spanish cleaner has been using her flat to turn tricks in the afternoons, and in her bed! And to top things off, her demanding mother - an ageing 60s-style icon - has a bad fall, requiring her to move in with Alex indefinitely. With so much to juggle, Alex begins to realise that she needs someone more committed than a cleaner - so she advertises for 'a wife'. Enter Ella - a brilliant cook and carer. But Ella isn't quite what she appears, and pretty soon Alex is contemplating 'divorce'...
