Jean Guerra, a designer at Garments of Praise fashion house, doesn't like surprises. These days, though, the unexpected meets her everywhere. Since Jean's return to the church a year ago, her God-encounters occur with increasing frequency, along with thoughts of her husband--the one she vowed to divorce and gave up on long ago. The one nobody knows about, not even her best friend, Lily, or her boss, Chenille.

So when Jean sees the designer assigned to work with her on a line of men's suits, she's shocked to her core. It's her husband, Nigel Salvador. Jean is finally rendered speechless. She already has enough trouble keeping up her relationship with her daughter and granddaughter. Can Nigel's reappearance help her broken family come together again? Or will Jean remain in the trenches of loneliness forever?


After losing her family, Chenille Rizzo pours everything into her fashion design company, Garments of Praise. When an email from her deceased and computer savvy husband arrives, Chenilles wonders if she'll ever get over him.

Megan Arietta, a former diva client known for breaking up couples, surprises everyone when she shows up pregnant, single and apologetic. Though her efforts at friendship seem sincere, has Megan really changed, or is she just out to pull Chenille into her drama?

After finding comfort in the arms and prayers of a handsome doctor, Chenille wonders how much love she has left to give. Probably not much. Despite her telling him so, the doctor gets wrapped up in Chenille's life--and unfortunately, Megan's too. Even worse, a bad business decision leaves Chenille on the outs with her old friends. Chenille's soul is finally seeing signs of summer, but will Chenille have anyone to share it with?
