This small fact means that her name will thereafter be Jane Bingley, just like a character from her favorite novel, Pride and Prejudice—not exactly a great reason to include on the list of why you want to marry someone.
As “Here Comes the Bride” rings out, Kieran’s conscience wars with her to stop the ceremony and tell everyone what happened last night before it’s too late.Kieran and Jane entered each other’s lives eight years before the wedding, meeting at a small college in Ohio.
They avoided each other their freshman and sophomore years because Kieran was an athlete and Jane was their college president’s daughter and a cheerleader. Yet, they bonded during a particularly dreadful class their junior year thanks to buckets of wine.After finishing grad school in separate states, Kieran is offered a dream job in the equally dreamy setting of Savannah, Georgia, where Jane has been earning her MBA and plans to stay. She and Bill are newly dating, while Kieran and Tyler are newlyweds after meeting their senior year of college.
Jane has never quite forgiven Kieran for breaking their senior year No Boyfriend Pact or warmed up to Tyler, but the two couples start hanging out every weekend once Kieran and Tyler arrive in Savannah.The group continues to grow, and the obligations mount, straining everyone’s romantic relationships as well as their friendships. As these twentysomethings thrust forward into adulthood, Jane becomes more demanding, expecting the rest of the girls to follow her lead as she sprints toward the next milestone of life as quickly as possible.
Tensions mount as the characters change and the group dynamic irreparably shifts. Adultery, divorce, career struggles, and baby pressures challenge each couple to decide who they should leave in the past, and who should be part of their futures.
