4.7 stars over 3 reviews
Description: Part One--Jealous of her sister Maggie and wanting everything she has, including her men, Ellyn hatches a plan with Maggie’s ex-husband to help him win her back but not without consequences.

In the small southern town where they live, Ellyn has created problems for them in the past as she has had a crush on Jameson since high school, some twenty or more years ago. Jameson has never had an interest in Ellyn, having always liked her sister Maggie. Although Maggie married Chuck, her high school sweetheart, it ended in divorce, mainly because of Chuck’s abusive nature throughout the marriage. Jameson and Maggie reconnected years later and plan to marry, and this is the reason, supposedly, Ellyn has planned the celebration.
