What to expect

Mandy, Emma, and Jill are as close as three sisters who live hundreds of miles apart can be. Jill lives a glamorous life in Manhattan as a co-owner of a successful executive search firm. Never married and a workaholic, she lives in a stunning corner condo, and everyone thinks there’s something going on with her partner, but there’s never been anything but friendship between them. Emma lives in Arizona and is an elementary-school teacher and aspiring photographer. She and her husband have been married for over fifteen years, but she’s noticed that he’s grown distant. When he shares a surprising secret, her world is turned upside down. Mandy married her high-school boyfriend after college. He joined a successful hedge fund while she took a job as an administrative assistant, but after their first baby came, she quit. When he later opened a competing hedge fund, they moved home to Nantucket. Now that the children are older, Mandy’s eager to return to work, but her husband doesn’t want her to. When their beloved grandmother passes peacefully in her sleep, she leaves them her home and—surprisingly—the popular year-round restaurant she was the silent owner of. There is, of course, a catch: she left the restaurant equally to the girls… and to Paul, its chef for the past fifteen years, and before the girls can sell, they all have to work there for a year—or else it will go entirely to Paul—the same Paul who broke Emma’s heart many years ago.
