Five women from different walks of life are all members of a Hampshire squash club. Over a period of time they become close friends and meet once a month for lunch. On the surface they seem to have perfect lives, but when tragedy and betrayal strike, their vulnerabilities are exposed.

For Sophie London, mourning the sudden death of her parents, a chance encounter in a restaurant turns her life upside down. At last she finds the happiness she so desperately craves. When family responsibilities draw her back to Jamaica, will she be forced to choose between her family and Mr Perfect?
For rich, spoilt Polly Gordon, boredom leads to a disastrous marriage. She wants out, and she gets her wish, but in an un-imaginable way. Though her marriage is over, her father-in-law is determined to make her life a living hell.
Clarissa Duncan, owner of an organic smallholding, is content with her life. Then her artist partner, Ted, finds unexpected success, and everything changes. Life will never be the same again.
When Emily Roper’s boyfriend, Jack, is tragically killed, an unexpected discovery threatens to rupture her fragile hold on life.
Will these friends support each other, or will their differences drive them apart? At the end of the season their lives have changed in ways they would never have predicted.
