The last thing on Ava Gregory's mind was settling down and starting a family. As an ambitious woman with a close-knit circle of friends, a great house in a beautiful California beach town and a growing career as a fashion designer, her life was in full swing. But everything changed the day she learned that her sister and brother-in-law were killed in an accident, leaving Ava to raise their three children, 16-year-old Bradin, 13-year-old Nikki and 9-year-old Derrick. Ava and her three best friends - Johnny, Jay and Susannah - all pitch in to help Ava provide the ultimate surrogate family for her sister's children.
