The Next Phase of Life

Finding a good man, getting along with your sister, and keeping up with your friends’ escapades doesn’t get any easier—even after forty!

Now that Tai Wilson has hit forty, the successful entrepreneur and proud homeowner is finally ready to settle down with the man of her dreams. She just has to find him. But her focus on dating gets pushed aside when her long-lost sister, Trista, surfaces. Separated as children following their parents’ deaths, the women live completely different lives, and Trista has trouble fitting into Tai’s upscale world. Will the sisters finally create the everlasting bond they crave, or will their relationship crumble entirely before their very eyes? Will Tai find the partner she seeks? Throw in some feisty friends with their own issues, and Tai is definitely ready for The Next Phase of Life.
