It's no secret that the entire town knows Adelia's ex-husband cheated on her countless times. But after her daughter Selena witnessed the tragedy first hand, Adelia found the strength and courage to divorce her husband. Feeling inspired and embracing life as a single mother, Adelia finds a new home in the Old Swan Point neighborhood of Serenity, South Carolina and becomes the manager at Main Street's most fashionable boutique. As things begin to fall into place, Adelia is reminded of the void in her heart.

Everyone's talking about the town's hottest bachelor, Gabe Franklin. It's been years since Gabe Franklin was in Serenity, after his mother's death he fled, but now he's back hoping to make amends for his past mistakes. Eager for a second chance, the last thing on his mind is settling down, but unfortunately for him, it's love at first sight when he crosses paths with Adelia Hernandez.

Gabe tries to ignore his temptation for Adelia and instead focuses on rebuilding the town. But when Adelia's daughter Selena runs away from school, Gabe is the first person there, reassuring her and showing Adelia compassion she hasn't felt in years. Adelia's proving irresistible, and Gabe just can't seem to stay away. As unexpected sparks begin to fly amongst them, Gabe considers himself to be the worst possible bet for happily-ever-after.

Everyone wants to see Gabe and Adelia happy. Cheered on by their friends, "the Sweet Magnolias," Gabe is bringing long-overdue passion and laughter into Adelia's life and she is capturing his heart one sweet moment at a time. To his surprise and hers, sometimes a rolling stone is just what it takes to build the rock-solid foundation of a family. Serenity, South Carolina may prove to be more than just the fresh start both Gabe and Adelia were hoping for.
