Joy Nelson doesn't feel comfortable at her job, and her best friend has moved to Montana and completely abandoned her. She knows she will never again feel comfortable working for the principal who dumped her best friend for her best friend's sister, so she decides to look for something new. A new job, a new life, a new world. Joy needs different, and she's determined to find it. In the back of her mind, she can't stop contemplating what life would be like with her best friend's new brother-in-law, Jim.
Jim Cauldron knows he has to get married. That much is an established fact, but how can he possibly know who to marry? He's never dated much, what with the people in town being superstitious about triplets and the entire Cauldron family. He met and danced with a girl at his brother's wedding that intrigues him, and he still can't quit thinking about. The problem is, she's a school counselor, which means she has a master's degree. He can barely read.
Will she think he is beneath her? Or can the two of them let their mutual attraction grow into something more?
