Six Californians start a club to discuss the works of Jane Austen, only to find their relationships -- both old and new -- begin to resemble 21st century versions of her novels.

In California, the favorite dog of the lonely Jocelyn dies and she meets her best friends in the funeral: the six times divorced Bernadette; the housewife Sylvia and her lesbian daughter Allegra; and the young French teacher Prudie, whose mother is a dysfunctional woman. When Sylvia's husband Daniel dumps her for a younger woman, Bernadette and Jocelyn organize a reading club of Jane Austen to distract her with Allegra and Prudie. Meanwhile the sci-fi fan Grigg, who owns a software company and was raised with three sisters, flirts with Jocelyn and she invites him to join the club with the intention of introducing him to Sylvia. They plan to read and discuss the novels "Sense and Sensibility" (1811), "Pride and Prejudice" (1813), "Mansfield Park" (1814), "Emma (1816), "Northanger Abbey" (1818) and "Persuasion" (1818), one per month. Meanwhile, Prudie's marriage with Dean is in crisis and she flirts with the student Trey. Aleggra falls in love for Corinne and tells her private life to her affair. But Jocelyn does not understand the feelings of Grigg. While reading the novels, their lives entwine with the characters of the writer, leading each one of them to find what is looking for in love.
