Rosie and Zach Cox were the main focal point of 311 Pelican Court. Olivia Lockhart gave them an odd custody agreement where the kids were awarded the house and the parents were forced to shuffle back in forth. At the beginning of the book both Zach and Rosie expressed a lot of bitterness towards each other and avoided each other at all costs. Later in the book their teenage daughter, Alison began to be super deviant and they teamed up to put her in her place. They gradually relized that they got along better divorced than they did married. Eddie and Alison began to push Zach and Rosie to get back together. Slowly, but surely they agreed and began going out on regular dates. By the end of the novel their engagement was announced.
Alison's deviant acts brought her to be a big part of the novel and it got Celia Randall back in the story. She got a job as Zach's assistant at his accounting firm. Zach made a deal with Alison that he could come work at his accounting firm and he made her Celia's assistant. This brought out great changes in Alison as she had somebody to talk to. She learned that Celia's baby's name was Alison and that her baby had died as a baby. Celia's parents had also got divorced and Alison's was able to confide her anger towards her parents in Celia.
Grace Sherman began this novel still having a difficult time after the loss of her husband Dan. She asked her boyfriend Cliff Harding to give her a break to grieve the loss of her husband. It was during that period that Olivia's brother Will contacted her and they began to chat online daily. Grace began to question her feelings for Cliff and she even believed she may be in love with Will. The problem is that William Lockhart was married and although he said that he was getting a divorce, Grace later found out that wasn't true. She was able to end the contact before anything bad happened. Cliff figured out that she was with another man and he ended his first marriage because his wife was cheating. We don't know where the future of their relationship lies. Cliff was willing to begin to form a relationship with Grace again because he was worried about her continuing to cheat on him. As a personal fan of Grace I think she would be loyal to him.

She began to believe that he was involved with another woman, but it wasn't until the end of the book that we found out the reason why. John had a prison record and he believed that if he spilled the beans, Mary Ellen would fight for sole custody of their daughter Katie.
