Summary
Leslie Anne Greene Carter is the last 'original' wife among her husband's successful Atlanta social set; his friends have all traded in their first wives for new, trophy ones. Though Leslie was proud of her status and the longevity of her marriage--even if the spark wasn't there anymore--one day an incident occurs that convinces Leslie it's time to cease being the good wife to a husband who thinks he's doing her a favor by keeping her around. Returning to her hometown of Charleston, S.C., to recuperate at her brother's home, Leslie decides to indulge herself with icy cocktails, warm laughter, divine temptation and bittersweet memories, and to learn to listen to her inner voice. By doing so, she comes to realize what she wants--and to find the kind of life she's always dreamed of.
Summary
The last original wife among her husband's group of cronies, Leslie Anne, after an accident, realizes her perfect life is a sham and embraces the healing powers of South Carolina's white beaches where she, with the help of the feisty and funny residents, reclaims the strong and sexy woman she was meant to be
