In Icicle Falls, Washington wedding planner Anne Richardson believes the Primrose Haus is the ideal location for her daughter Laney’s upcoming nuptials.  However, there is one big obstacle for the mother of the bride to host the event there; Laney insists on Las Vegas.  Positive that her daughter would fall in love with Icicle Falls and Primrose Haus like she has and agree to the wedding she did not have; Anne convinces her stubborn offspring to spend a weekend with her in the picturesque Pacific Northwest town.  Laney acquiesces to a couple days just to shut up politely her obstinate mom.

Septuagenarian Primrose Haus owner Roberta Gilbert has adult children issues too.  Her depressed daughter Daphne wants a job working for her mom.  However, Roberta knows that serial divorced Daphne is not the paragon of a happily married person; whereas additionally the business requires calm and order instead of what the queen of chaos theory.

The latest Life in Icicle Falls' contemporary (see The Lodge On Holly Road, The Tea Shop On Lavender Lane and The Cottage On Juniper Ridge) is a fine family drama that looks deeply at the relationship between a mother and her adult daughter.  The leisurely-paced storyline is enhanced by the moms’ memories of their ties with their moms.  Series fans will want to attend A Wedding On Primrose Street.
