Three Hollinger--Perennial team captain, practical, supportive and a fount of boundless energy. Her tendency is to be hyper-organized occasionally drives her friends a bit crazy. She is the eternal tomboy, a health nut and an all-American mom who lives in Raleigh, NC.
Dinah Grayson--The wise-cracking cynic who has fought her way to the top and enjoys the view. A lawyer in the biggest and most prestigious law firm in Atlanta, Dinah excels at everything except romance. Armed with a dry martini and an even drier sense of humor, Dina seldom reveals her softer side.
Lexie Richards--A true southern belle from Chapel Hill, NC, Leix is the vain, youth-obsessed event planner for a chain of 4-star hotels, who has her plastic surgeon on speed dial. Multiple marriages haven't tamed her appetite for male attention, and she'll be happy to share all her wild romantic exploits with anyone who will listen.
Jeri Neal McFeeley--The ditsy ray of sunshine in the group, Jeri Neal is perky, naive and always sees the positive side of everything. Having been a nun for years, she has been protected from the seamier side of life and while she appears to be predictable on the surface, Jeri Neal makes life choices that surprise and amaze even her closest friends.
Vernadette Simms-If you look in the dictionary under "hard luck case" you'll find Vernadette. A perpetual cloud hangs over this public school teacher with limited financial resources, a son who's a career criminal and a daughter who drifts from cult to cult, Vernadette is self-deprecating by necessity. She faces her tribulations with gallows humor and the unwavering support of her friends.
