After successfully pairing her best friend, Arnita, with her cousin, Nate, Kahara matches her divorced mother Harriett with Alex, a distinguished professor. Things go smoothly at first (donít they always) until an unexpected love interest complicates matters.  Kaharaís final match-up leads to calamity when she pairs her cousin Paul with her boyfriendís cousin Monica.
