Janey Mayfield has returned to the small South Carolina town she fled years before - her husband and best friend had an affair that resulted in two broken marriages. She has taken over her aunt's candy shop and is trying to make a go at it despite her husband's lack of support.
Her husband thinks he might have another chance to get her back, and even tries manipulating their daughter as a means to his ends. But Janey can't seem to discount the attraction she is feeling for widower Dillon Reed, her daughter's principal (and the husband of her former best friend). Dillon stood by his philandering wife when he discovered she had cancer and very little time left. Dillon and Janey must grapple with the decision of whether to pursue a relationship which is sure to raise some eyebrows in this small town, since the local gossips are buzzing.
In a secondary story, daughter Robin is fighting peer pressure to sleep with her popular boyfriend who may not be such a prize after all. She thinks that her mother is being too controlling, especially since her father is supportive of the relationship.
Overall, it was an interesting storyline, but the dialog is atrocious and hard to overcome - particularly that attributed to the teens - the last time I heard the line "get it on," Marvin Gaye was still alive.
