Jessie Lansdel (jessielansdel) | 2 comments This book begins with one of the women getting ready for what she thinks is a lunch date with her partners boss. However, her partner has organised a surprise wedding instead. She is furious and runs out on the guy and all the guests.

At home, she is hounded by the press (she's a news reporter) then rescued by a friend.
Later, the woman and her two best friends meet up in a wine bar on New Years Eve and make a pact to accept all invitations and try new things in the new year.

One of the friends is unhappily married and she is a spend thrift and in debt. Her husband is having an affair with a younger man.

One of the friends is a talented pianist and does the music for an amateur drama groups musical.

The unhappily married friend meets a guy on line and goes to meet him abroad. He turns out to have a fetish for being whipped.

I believe the women live in and around Plymouth. The title of the book may be the name of the wine bar they frequent.

I hope someone recognises the plot and can help me with title and/or author.

Thank you.
