"After growing up in privilege and marrying into money, Lila Alders has gotten used to the good life. But when her happily-ever-after implodes, Lila must return to Black Dog Bay, the tiny seaside town where she grew up. She's desperate for a safe haven, but everything has changed over the past ten years. Her family's fortune is gone-and her mother is in total denial. It's up to Lila to take care of everything...but she can barely take care of herself. The former golden girl of Black Dog Bay struggles to reinvent herself by opening a vintage clothing boutique. But even as Lila finds new purpose for outdated dresses and tries to reunite with her ex, she realizes that sometimes it's too late for old dreams. She's lost everything she thought she needed but found something-someone-she desperately wants. A boy she hardly noticed has grown up into a man she can't forget...and a second chance has never felt so much like first love. "-- Provided by publisher.

Book had interesting characters & Our gang mentality
However, it does belong to Book Club on serious issues from hoarding, debt or pro & cons of sleepy town life for former supermodel mother to daughter's ex-boyfriend's fiance.
Ditto interesting secondary characters.
Former military have serious sewing skills? "Ultimate woman bait".
Former Ms. Delaware from family of beauty queens selling her evening gown because she raised twin boys & having another set of twin boys? Double ouch.
Author sure knows her fashion history.
