Imogen, who organised the holiday, is frighteningly capable and a bit of a control freak. She and her banker husband Guy live in Barnes, though Imogen longs for Wiltshire. With three children in whom she's invested her hopes and ambitions, she's well-informed and has an opinion on everything. But is Imogen's tidy life as perfect 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 now lives in Crouch End and they don't see as much of each other anymore. Sophie knows she should be feeding her offspring organic cous-cous, but they love McDonalds' 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.
