Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

When Jo's husband trades her in for a younger model, she finds herself living in a houseboat on the Thames. She soon realises she'll need more than a few culinary skills to keep herself afloat. Elsewhere, getting last-minute cold feet, Dora has ditched her fiance, fled village life and a domineering mother to come under Jo's wing."
