Sunday Salon: Elevator Pitch for your Favorite Series

For the past week I've been reading Sophie's Dilemma, a Lauraine Snelling book set in her fictional town of Blessing, ND. I've read all the previous books in the series, and halfway through this one it occurred to me that I could distill the basics of this series in a single line: "These are the stories of how the Bjorklunds found their spouses." There are lots of other events like births, deaths, barn fires, and graduations, and that keeps the books from reading like traditional romance novels. Still, the overall theme of each book seems to be getting two people together.

QUESTION: Can you come up with a single line or an "elevator pitch" for one of your favorite series?
