Gretchen Carpenter didn’t come from money. She didn’t have a lot growing up in her small town. As the black sheep of her family, instead of staying home and taking over the family business, she moved to Boston, got into Harvard Law School, and is about to graduate when she gets an internship at a personal injury law firm. It’s not what Gretchen wanted to do, but it’s the reason she meets Amanda Dixon.
Amanda Dixon comes from old money, and that’s helpful, but it doesn’t stop her from working hard for what she wants. On her way to a master’s in her instrument from one of the most prestigious music schools in the country, she does not have time for a pesky lawsuit.
When the two women meet, they clash instantly due to their differences and perceptions. Once they’re forced to work together, they find they have more in common than they initially thought, and they might just have met the person that finally gets them to let go.
Erin Stanley hasn’t dated in years. When she lost the woman she thought was the love of her life, her heart just couldn’t seem to recover. Deciding to focus on building a new business for herself instead of trying to repair her broken heart, she begins to think that love might be the very unexpected thing she needs to finally feel whole again instead of the one thing that will always elude her.
Becca Pratt just got a promotion. She should be happy, but it’s a job she doesn’t want. She takes freelance design jobs on the side, and when an acquaintance reaches out about a friend needing help with some design work for her new business, she takes it as a way to get back to doing what she loves. When she first lays eyes on Erin Stanley, she knows this woman will never be just a client.
The two women attempt to embark on friendship while one of them mends her heart, and the other tries to figure out what she wants to do with her life, where she wants to do it, and who she wants by her side.
