Four unique Southern women, all needing to escape the sameness of their day-to-day routines, are drawn together by Fate—and an impromptu happy hour—and decide it’s high time to reclaim the enthusiasm for life they’ve lost through the years. Randa, a perfectionist and workaholic; Dot, still reeling from her husband’s recent demise, earthy and boisterous Marlafaye, a good ol’ Texas gal who just lost her tom-cattin’ husband to a twenty-three-year-old dental hygienist and Jinx, a spunky ball of fire, who offers her services as a much-needed life coach for these women. However, blinded by her determination and efforts to get their lives on track, she over-looks the fact that she’s the one most in need of sage advice. Together, they discover lasting friendships and a renewed determination to live in the moment—and most importantly, realize it’s never too late to make new old friends.
