Content

Carole Harding is in her 50s. She divorced her husband after he cheated on her with a prostitute. She hated her life – working in a Bristol supermarket – and the only exciting thing she’d done was to go on holiday (to Scotland in a caravan). Then she inherited 2 million pounds. Now she lives in an apartment in a plush complex in Tenerife, but it seems all her neighbours have problems and Carole finds herself helping to change their lives…Nadean is the actress who hit the headlines and had to go into hiding: Victoria, a model, why did her family turn against her? Hamilton spent his life traveling the world, earning so much money, but was so lonely: Riley gave up everything for love…Then there are Peter and Paul, who only seem to be happy when having a crisis and Jeremy – who has secrets from his wife and from the law. As Carole gets involved with the lives of her neighbours, she blossoms into the woman she’d always longed to be…when she meets Robson, can Carole make the biggest transformation of her life?
