Under normal circumstances, bohemian, skint Izzie Stock would never have met Maddy Hoare, a Gucci-clad, Beemer-driving urbanite. Their backgrounds and values appear to be a million miles apart. Then, due to their respective husbands' careers, both women are dumped into the English countryside, fish out of water with five young children between them. They are thrown together at a ghastly ladies' lunch and quickly find they have two things in common - an absolute hatred for the petty-mindedness of their neighbours and a longing for the mucky London streets and residents' parking permits they've left behind.

When tragedy hits and Maddy's world collapses, the two women decide it's time to shake things up. A chance discovery of Maddy's leads to the launch of a natural cosmetics company from Maddy's kitchen. The friends' subsequent success has implications far beyond their wildest imaginings...

Lovey chick-lit title! So enjoyable! Gave me a good laugh! A relaxing and entertaining read. Have since sought out other Annie Sanders titles because she is so funny!

Unrelated to this book but wanted to save the information. Read Jane Elizabeth Varley's book "The Truth About Love" liked it with the story of the Victorian couple who lived in Wimbleton and then the writer Sally wrote a book about the truth of their life and also Anna the TV producer and Marriage Menders.
