Nicole Breen

Nicole Breen is a complicated, intelligent, slightly privileged woman who has let her career in HR slip away during the years that she and her husband Matthew Lawson were trying for a child. While Nicole makes Abby her main priority in the face of her challenges with Matthew, she is finally ready to regain control of her life and do something for herself – even if she doesn’t quite know how to go about that. Beneath Nicole's controlled exterior are some growing insecurities about where she fits among the Lawsons and, particularly, Matthew’s complicated new family structure.
