Isis and her sister, Egypt - two of the original curvaceous members of the Big Girls Book Club - have hightailed it out of New York and settled in Richmond, Virginia, where they've started a new chapter of the BGBC. Living in the plush suburbs, Isis has it all - almost. The thirty-seven-year-old plus-size beauty is happily married to Rashid, and they're living in the lap of luxury. There's just one thing missing. They want to start a family. Enter Egypt, who's moved into her sister's McMansion with dreams of starting over. There's just one hitch - before her sister married Rashid, he was Egypt's man for ten years. Egypt thought she was over him, but the close quarters are giving both her and her sister doubts. She's ready to pack her bags until Isis and Rashid ask her for a serious favor. Egypt knows she shouldn't get involved, but she can't say no to her sister - even if the price might be way too high for them all.
