Three Sisters. Three stories. Three Missed Opportunities.
On a visit to her hometown of Cypress Falls, Ginger Franklin runs into her high school sweetheart and tries to fend off his advances because she is, after all, married--maybe not happily married, but married nonetheless.
Eldest sister, Risa Franklin Russell's marriage is falling apart, and it's happening right as her only daughter, Lisa, becomes engaged. As if that's not bad enough, she's not happy about the prospect of her traitorous sister's return for Lisa's wedding. Risa doesn't need Georgia's success or her own stupidity thrown in her face.
Georgia Franklin contemplates going home for the first time in twenty-five years, after she learns her niece is getting married--to the son of Georgia's childhood crush. The only thing Georgia fears more than her past coming back to haunt her, is disappointing her niece.
