They are lifelong friends and have done everything together. And now they're all about to get married. But in the midst of her dream wedding preparations Bel discovers that her fiance Richard has been cheating with her cousin-bridesmaid. After wreaking a humiliating revenge, she runs off to the remote holiday cottage her father owns, only to find that she has inherited a neighbour - writer Dan Regent - who is as disenchanted with women as she is with men. Ice-cream parlour owner Violet is engaged to her childhood sweetheart Glyn. But over the years they have both changed. Glyn is so obsessively in love with her that Violet simply can't say the words 'I don't want to marry you anymore.' Then she employs a young Polish man to decorate her cafe and discovers exactly what true love feels like.
