These days, Annette Goode Davis has a full plate--literally and figuratively. Although she's trying to reconcile with her husband, Pee Wee, she's still seeing other men. A woman's got to cover her bases, right? Annette should be pleased with her busy love life. Instead, the stress has her eating everything in sight and packing on the pounds.
Meanwhile, her best friend, Rhoda O'Toole, has her hands full with her wild child daughter, Jade. And when Jade's antics almost cost Rhoda her man, Rhoda throws her out. Annette thanks her lucky stars that her daughter, Charlotte, has her head on straight. And she's doubly blessed to have a strait-laced neighbor look after Charlotte when she's caught up in Pee Wee and Rhoda's problems. But when Annette's world is rocked by a terrible revelation, she'll discover that appearances can be very deceiving--and she'll have to summon every ounce of strength to protect the ones she loves.
