Kathy is alone. The love of her life has died in a tragic accident. The town she lives in shuns her, leaving her completely and utterly alone. Deciding to move on with her life, she gives love another chance by becoming a mail order bride. But her new husband, Paul Lowder, is not all that he seems.
John is a tennis coach with an easygoing life: a few rambunctious students, a dog, and parents who want more from him and aren't afraid to tell him so. Everyone is always trying to set him up, but he can't see the point. His dates never seem to go well. They never seem to click on an emotional level. That is until he meets Kari in an unexpected way.
