"We Interrupt This Marriage" makes Callie Ann Dickerson overdose on fresh fruit facials in hopes of ridding her mind of the holiday customer that keeps stealing her heart one smoothie at a time.

Poppy Vanlandingham had no intention of ever wearing a glass slipper again or riding away in a carriage; she just wanted the plumbing fixed! "The Firing of Prince Charming" was the only thing she could do to prove her independence, despite the overflowing tub!

"The Second Wife" tugs at your heart-strings when Beth Nichols summons the only man she ever loved after a decade of waiting. Can she have the fairy tale ending she waited for? Or does true love really not have an ending?

In "The Tuesday Affair," Dr. Miranda Keeling has begun to have a new perspective on that day of the week commonly known as Tuesday. After meeting every Tuesday with her best friend, Miranda realizes what he already knew! They were more than friends! Is she too late? Is there a prescription to get her to admit the 'L' word?

When it comes to matters of the heart it all depends on what "A Girl's Gotta Do..."
