Here's the scoop—Ellie decides its time to leave her live-in boyfriend because she's not happy in her relationship. Since the boyfriend is the beloved high school coach the whole town gets upset at her. So upset that they boycott her family's restaurant.
Her long time friend and widower of her best friend, Noah, comes to her rescue. For the past several months the two have been getting closer, but Ellie never noticed the way he look at her until she left her former boyfriend. Now everyone is getting the wrong idea and giving her an even worse time.
