At age thirty-three, Pepper Bradford has no career, no passion and no children. Moving in with her fiancé Rick, and joining the co-op board give her some control over her life--until her parents take a dislike to Rick and urge her to call off the wedding. When she glimpses a trail of desperate text messages from Rick's obsessed female client, Pepper realizes that her parents might be right. She looks to her older neighbors to help her decide what to do, not realizing their marriages are in crisis too.
