Chapter 2: Your Cheatin’ Heart
Still wrapped up in the excitement of Molly’s big career announcement, both the Flynn and Bigg families each found their own way to celebrate. For Molly, that meant buying a brand new car, and for Mike, that meant heading up a boy’s fishing trip. Too bad the book-deal honeymoon phase was quickly waning.
When Carl invited Victoria, his new girlfriend and Molly’s sister, along on the men-only vacation, all of the other guys slowly felt pressured to invite their significant others, as well. That is, except for Mike.
After an argument with Molly, Mike finally decides to include her in the weekend festivities. Molly excitedly started packing up the supplies when Victoria dropped a fun-ruining bomb on her: She cheated on Carl with her ex-boyfriend.
Upset that she now had something bigger to worry about than all of the junk food Mike would be eating, Molly tried to devise a plan to keep Victoria from telling Carl about her indiscretion. Fortunately, Victoria and Carl actually strengthened their relationship during the trip. Love can make people do crazy things. Just ask Mike—he even sacrificed time at the lake for a trip to an antique store to make Molly happy.
