April, Laura and Ellen are friends at a crossroads, each has a secret but one should be shared. 

Dispatched by her latest employer, April’s new goal is to open a café. But snags thwart her progress and pestered by a suspicion that Ellen’s husband is cheating, she instead turns her attention to sleuthing. Discovering the truth leaves April burdened and she seeks out Laura’s advice but, with a tawdry secret to protect, her friend is reticent. Laura’s tranquil retirement has been shattered by the reappearance of an old flame whose motives for the reunion soon give rise to question. Her predicament is compounded when she spies Ellen’s husband at a restaurant dining with a young woman – a distressing observation which forces her to acknowledge a past transgression. 

Ellen’s talent for baking sees her emerge from her shell as she builds her cake-making business. But she fails to notice her husband feels left out and is distracted by a fellow commuter. The revelation of his treachery causes a dramatic response, leaving Ellen with a chilling secret and her husband’s life in the balance. Determined to focus on the future she sets about transforming the outbuildings of her home into a Bed & Breakfast business. This project brings the friends together in a joint venture, where the involvement of all three finally provides the resolution to their individual quandaries.
