SYNOPSIS of Old Frenemies by Wendy Meredith Bain
Charlotte’s wildlife documentary-maker husband, Duncan, has to take her on a job with him filming red squirrels in North Wales. He doesn’t want her to come with him, but she’s scared after they had an intruder in their house in London and insists that he takes her with him.

The BBC rent Duncan a cottage in the rural countryside in Wales. It is owned by Charlotte’s old nemesis Lesley, whom she hasn’t seen in thirty years. Lesley stole Gethin, Charlotte’s childhood sweetheart away from her. She doesn’t know Lesley and Gethin own the farm where the cottage is and she never wanted to see either of them again.

Lesley’s and Gethin’s children have left home and she wants to build holiday cottages all over the farm and wants the scenic land the red squirrels live on for this. Gethin has said no to the idea. He loves his farm and especially the red squirrels. Lesley goes behind his back to arrange to cut the squirrels’ trees down. He’s angry and tired of Lesley’s aspirations and manipulations. He’s delighted to see Charlotte again.

Old and new secrets unravel about who did what to whom? Ending with some hilarious revelations and proving the old adage ‘it’s never too late’.
