Garvin Daniels is a sassy, bright, self-absorbed D.C. lawyer with her eyes on a partnership. There's just one problem-Meemaw, her seventy-something grandmother! Meemaw has been transformed. She's suddenly a slimmed-down, silver-haired fox with a new attitude. And all fingers are pointing at a much younger retired pro football player, GoGo Walker, who cruises into Meemaw's small rural town with a red sports car and a reputation for womanizing. Eyes are watching and gossip is flying-especially at Big Esther's Beauty Shop. When Garvin discovers her grandmother's radical emancipation-and the man who's leading the charge-she hits the road for her North Carolina home, determined to help Meemaw get it together before she goes too far...
