Desperate to save her home from foreclosure, suburban housewife Veronica Bennett attempts a con-job while balancing an inattentive husband, delinquent teen, and celebrity lover. Sexy, funny, and touchingly poignant, passions rise and the clock ticks toward midnight, December 31st. Is it really a con-job or just the romantic fantasy of our protagonist? She places an ad in a high-end magazine:
"Happy New Year, Darling! Plan now for a fantasy dream come true. Bring in the New Year at a lavish resort, but don't stop there. Spoiled in luxury, you will be joined by your estranged lover. You know, that special one and only who SHOULD be with you on this, the most romantic night of the year. We can provide that certain woman, who until now was unavailable to you. Is a family part of your holiday magic? We will recreate the loving family you deserve. Call Veronica for a discreet consultation."
She figures, heck for $30,000 - I only need one customer. She gets one customer, and it all begins.
