Four best friends. A lifetime of memories. Nothing could ever come between them … or so it would seem.
Welcome to the quaint town of Honeycomb, Alabama where life is anything but serene. Roxie Fisher must fight to save her bakery from the greedy clutches of her lifelong nemesis, Imogene West, while trying to finagle a way to keep Gus Malone, the love of her life, from falling for her spoiled but beautiful designer friend, Rose, who's determined to make Gus number four in her long line of husbands. Roxie get lots of help and unwanted advice from Bobbi, her busybody friend and Pollie, her hypochondriac sister.
Things really heat up when some long-hidden letters are discovered, bringing to light a shocking scandal that threatens to rip apart lifelong friendships and reek havoc on the town.
Lots of cat fighting and cake slinging going on in this heartfelt story about the friendships that define our lives and the secrets we all keep from each other.

Experience family life in a small town where everybody knows everybody and your deepest, darkest secrets are liable to be featured in next week's addition of The Busy Bee Reporter. (Is it true that Dr. Amos Grey buried his poor, dead wife in the front yard?)
Stop by The Cornerstone Bakery to get a taste of Roxie's famous orange rolls or a double chocolate cake, boasting a pound of chocolate in each one. If you need to rekindle the romance in your life, Bobbi's chocolate chip cookies are sure to do the trick. Word around town is that they're magic—give one to a prospective suitor and he'll be swooning over you for sure! But don't even think about getting the recipe because Bobbi keeps it under lock and key. She won't even divulge it to Roxie, her best friend.
Take a stroll around the Honeycomb Square and find a good, shady spot to sit a spell and relax. If you're lucky, you might catch a glimpse of Rose, the bombshell interior designer that's often seen sauntering around with a different man on her arm. Rumor has it that she's on the lookout for husband number four.
