Recently divorced, Merilee Talbot Dunlap moves with her two children to the Atlanta suburb of Sweet Apple, Georgia. Efforts at a new beginning aren't helped by an anonymous local blog that dishes about the scandalous events that caused her marriage to fail. She's renting a cottage from town matriarch Sugar Prescott, who sees something of herself in Merilee-- something that allows her to open up about her own colorful past. Merilee is charmed by the seemingly perfect life of Heather Blackford. But in Sweet Apple, appearance is everything... and deception can be dangerous.
