Summary
Melanie is a successful New York fashion designer who is dating a wealthy socialite. One day he pops the big question and asks Melanie to marry him. Despite her polished uptown image, Melanie grew up poor in the deep South, and as a teenager she married her high school sweetheart. Now Melanie returns to her hometown to tell her parents the news and convince Jake to grant her a divorce. However, the more time she spends with her old flame, the more she feels sparks flying between them again, while she also learns her Eastern affectations don't fly with everyone back home
