At 32, Russell Green has it all: a stunning wife, a lovable six year-old daughter, a successful career as an advertising executive and an expansive home in Charlotte. He is living the dream, and his marriage to the bewitching Vivian is the center of that.

Liz Coppersmith hopes to move beyond kids’ parties at Chuck E. Cheese to planning premier events among the upper crust in Newport, Rhode Island. Her first upscale client is confirmed bachelor Jack Eastman, who’s struggling to keep the family empire afloat and would be just fine with Chuck E. Cheese.
More problematic for Jack are an untrained puppy, two illegitimate toddlers, a runaway mother and an aging Lothario father. Liz’s problems are simpler: an historic mystery, an amnesiac friend, a thief on the loose and a recurring apparition that may or may not be her imagination.
