Swimming Pool Sunday
On a hot May Sunday, the Delaneys open their pool to all the village for charity. Louise is there with her daughters, ignoring her estranged husband Barnaby as she lies back in the sun and dreams of Cassian, the new man in her life. But suddenly the perfect day is shattered when tragedy strikes. A terrible accident leads to a drama of recriminations and legal power-play, and the village is split as the needs of a child become secondary to the dangerous contest of the grown-ups.

The Tennis Party
It was Patrick's idea to have the tennis party weekend, and his new home is the perfect setting. But he didn't tell his brash and beautiful wife Caroline what the real reason for the party was. Behind her Pimm's-induced laughter, she is happy to welcome their former neighbours Stephen and Annie, less glad to see newly wealthy Charles and his aristocratic wife Cressida, and barely tolerates competitive Don and Valerie. When the first ball is served, it signals the start of two days of revelations, shocks, the arrival of an unwanted guest and the realisation that the weekend is about anything but tennis.
