After nearly a decade as a sous-chef in a trendy eatery, Jenna Stevens is desperate for a change. She's supported her ex-husband's dreams for so long that she can't even remember her own. Until she sees a 'for-lease' sign near her parents' home and envisions her very own cooking store.
Her crash course in business is aided by a streetwise store manager and Jenna's adoptive mother. But just as she's gaining a foothold in her new life, in walk her birth parents — aging hippies on a quest to reconnect with their firstborn.
Now Jenna must figure out how to reconcile her birth parents with her adoptive parents, deal with her feelings for a new love interest and decide what to do about her ex's latest outrageous request. Along the way, Jenna will find that there is no perfect family — only the people we love…
