Lawyer Lucy Baker just got a "not guilty" verdict for her current client, but she knows he is guilty. In fact, he is one of too many rich, guilty clients going free. So she decides to take a hiatus from law and move to suburban New Jersey with her dog, Sadie. But two FBI agents show up to tell her that her fiance is not who he says he is. Lucy is dismissive but starts to think about how rarely she and her fiance see each other. Then the FBI agents return with details about all the nefarious dealings her fiance is involved in and show her papers that she has signed as the owner of a multimillion-dollar compound. Meanwhile, she meets her neighbor, whose dog is a friend of Sadie&apos,s. Wylie Wilson is also a lawyer, and as her problems mount, she turns to him for help. Soon Lucy and Wylie become more than friends, and the prolific Michaels delivers a humorous, rollicking tale of adventure and intrigue.
