It's funny how just when you're feeling totally in control of your life, something happens and nothing can ever be the same again.
For Alice, 29 year old solicitor, it's discovering that she has inherited a hardware shop and house from her favourite and recently deceased aunt. But could she give up her life in London to make a go of the business in Ireland?
For Maggie, 36 year-old lady of leisure, it's finding her husband up close and personal with her neighbour! When he leaves her for his new-found love she takes drastic action.
For Isabel, 36 years old with twins, it's the discovery that her husband has just gambled their life savings on the stock market and lost.
Nothing is ever straight forward: what with stolen diamonds, an attempted kidnapping and an unsolved murder, selling everything from goose eggs to hoover bags is going to be more of a challenge than anyone thought!
