When dynamic, power-dressing Christie blows in like a warm wind to take over their department, five very different women find themselves thrown together at work.
But none of them could have predicted the fierce bond of friendship that her leadership would inspire...Anna, 39, is reeling from the loss of her fiance, who ran off with a much younger woman.
Her pride in tatters, these days Anna finds it difficult to leave the house.
So when a handsome, mysterious stranger takes an interest in her, she's not sure whether she can learn to trust again?
Then there's Grace, in her fifties, trapped in a loveless marriage with a man she married because, unable to have children of her own, she fell in love with his motherless brood.
Grace worries that Dawn is about to make the same mistake: orphaned as a child, engaged to love-rat Calum, is Dawn more interested in the security that comes with his tight-knit, boisterous family?
When a sexy, footloose rock singer catches her eye, will Dawn have the courage to follow her heart?
At 28, Raychel is the youngest member of their little gang. And with a loving husband, Ben, and a cosy little nest for two, she would seem to be the happiest. But what dark secrets are lurking behind this perfect facade, that make sweet, pretty Raychel so guarded and unwilling to open up?
Under Christie's warm hand, the girls soon realise they have some difficult choices to make.
Indeed, none of them quite realised how much they needed the sense of fun, laughter, and loyalty that abounds when five women become friends.
It's one for all, and all for one!
