Unlike her best friend Camilla Riley, compulsive list-maker Terry Diamond prides herself on her organisational abilities. Also unlike Camilla, Terry is tall, blonde, curvaceous and self-confident.
However, all this doesn't stop chaos bursting into her life when her daughter not only gives birth on Terry's living-room rug but decides to move home with infant in tow.
Then there are the problems Terry is having with her love life, as she realises her boyfriend – a handyman who wears pink overalls – may not even be Mr Right For Now, and falls in love at first sight with a mysterious stranger who dresses like the father in a 1950s sitcom.
Will all this mayhem make the play-it-safe Terry do what she needs to do to turn her life around?
