Spotlight: The Bookshop by the Bay

Jess is a high-profile lawyer in Charleston. Or was, until she catches her husband in an affair and retreats to her childhood home on Cape Cod to regroup and take stock of her life. Allison is a magazine editor, but is forced to step back from her career thanks to dwindling circulation. Flanked by their daughters, both friends find themselves seeking comfort in the place they grew up, trying to put the pieces of their lives back together.

When Alison stops by her beloved local bookstore one day and learns that the owner wants to sell, she and Jess spring into action and purchase it. Now that one of their favorite childhood haunts belongs to them, the two friends, along with the help of their daughters, reopen the doors of the cherished bookstore to the community. They also open themselves up to the possibility of romance, the bonds of mothers and daughters, and the magic of second chances.
