Stella Sparks is on good terms with her ex-husband despite the fact he left her for another woman. Stella's philosophical about it - the marriage had run its course, though they still get on and have a shared focus on the wellbeing of their kids. Stella's two closest friends, Carly and Jessie, envy her togetherness and wish they could take a leaf out of her book. Jessie's husband, Steve, is a control freak who's driving her crazy, but she has two small children and can't see a way out. Carly, meanwhile, suspects her husband is having an affair and isn't sure what to do about it though she does know she needs to cut down on her drinking ...Stella's life takes a distinctly upward turn when she meets a handsome, apparently single - no ring, anyway - father at her son's school speech night. But for Carly and Jessie things will get worse before they get better. Fun but insightful, Stella Makes Good will cause flashes of recognition in most women.
