First World problems…
The Fitzpatricks are just your average, everyday, gazillionaire family who needs grief counseling after the death of their beloved grandfather. And that’s where our hero enters. Jonas St. John heads from his home in Chicago to Towering Pines, Alabama, the Fitzpatricks’ ginormous mansion worthy of its own zip code. It’s a favor for his sister, Roxanne Ackerman Daniels, and a much-needed working vacation for him. He’s just been through a very bad, very public break-up and could use the downtime to get himself back together.
What he doesn’t plan on is an eccentric family cast, including the family pet pig and the not-so eccentric, Chickie Fitzpatrick. Oh, and the fact that ‘grief counseling’ is Fitzpatrick code for mental evaluation. Their grandfather, not trusting their ability to make healthy decisions concerning money, gave his lawyer explicit instructions and a set of unbreakable rules on what the family has to do in order to inherit.
Chickie doesn’t see the need in all this so-called grief counseling aka, coaching sessions. They may all have to pass the eval before any of them can inherit, as far as she’s concerned, it’s completely unnecessary. She doesn’t believe her grandfather is even dead. And she really wishes Jonas St. John would pack up and head back north. He’s a little too handsome and a little too…knowing for her comfort. He doesn’t seem impressed by money and power. Just the kind of man she could fall in love with.
Jonas finds himself inexplicably drawn to the beautiful Chickie. But the last thing he needs to do is fall in love. And when ‘accidents’ start happening around the mansion, threatening all of their lives, Jonas begins to wonder if there’s more at stake than a simple multi-billion-dollar inheritance.
