after. At 25 years old, she finds herself divorced after
only 10 months of marriage. Jean-Marc, her romantic ideal,
has ridden off into the sunset, telling Holly that he

Now she's starting over in San Francisco with an entry-

her is proving impossible, though, and matters are not
helped by having a gorgeous boss, Olivia, who's determined
to put Holly back in the dating scene again. A series
of "frog princes" follow as Holly attempts to take charge
of her own life. Somewhere in the middle of
surviving "after marriage" life, Holly begins to reinvent
herself while discovering that she is an interesting person
who can create her own future.
