Plot Synopsis

Three grown siblings return home after their father's death, and unexpectedly find themselves poised to inherit a vast estate worth more than $20 million -- but only if they adhere to their late father's wishes. Henry is the eldest child and an overachieving surgeon who sees himself as a role model for his less successful siblings. When he returns home, Henry questions the choices he's made, especially as he reconnects with his first love and true soulmate, Lucinda. Middle sibling Chloe was a child prodigy in math, and her unofficial role as "the smart one" of the family still sends Henry into fits of jealousy. But long ago, Chloe gave up academics in favor of being the popular girl. Now, through a series of hidden messages, her late father will lead Chloe back to her old love of numbers -- and back to the person she's meant to be. Of the three siblings, the youngest, Jimmy, could use the inheritance the most. A small-time ex-con and dull-witted guitarist who's deep in debt to a loan shark, Jimmy may be the family screw-up, but he has more heart than anyone. Like his siblings, Jimmy's also returning to something in this town: his eight-year-old daughter. Guilty over not parenting his kids better, their father, Benjamin, has left behind a series of unique challenges to be administered by his estate attorney, April.
