Life isn't looking too rosy for Alice Devine. She's a single mum, and needs a well-paid job fast, because as much as she loves her sister, Hilda, she hadn't planned on living with her. Added to that, her love life has been a disaster and she's beginning to wonder if she'll ever find the man of her dreams.
Things suddenly start to look up when she lands the job as assistant fund raiser for St Jude's Maternity Hospital - particularly when she meets her new boss, the gorgeous but enigmatic Jack Wiseheart. What she hadn't bargained for was also acting as general dogsbody to the terrifying and wealthy Maud Hamilton-O'Connor, Chair of the Fundraising Committee and her side-kick, Koo.
Nothing is ever as it seems, however, and it's not only the women who have their secrets. When the cracks start to appear, they all realize in their different ways that they have to face the truth before they can get on with their lives.
