Overview

Just when Love meets her half-sister in LA, her dad calls to burst her blissful summer bubble. Her mother, whose identity was kept a mystery her entire life, is in Martha's Vineyard. Love has to cut her trip short and book it home. Unfortunately, what she finds isn't her mother, but a whole world turned upside down.

For one thing, Love's boyfriend Charlie has traded in his fishing pole for a pair of stiff khakis to please his equally stiff and overbearing parents. Meanwhile, her ex professes to still have feelings for her. Thankfully she has her friends and Dad to rely on. But even Dad doesn't have all the answers. Only one woman can clear things up, a woman who's never known Love. Has she come back to stay? Maybe ignorance was bliss.
