Card shark and former wild child Hallie Palmer returns to Cosgrove County, Ohio, and resumes her job as live-in yard person for the summer, and also for some damage control. Around town, folks assume that since Hallie didn't end up doing time after her previous escapades, she now has time for all of their troubles, and thus begins a series of uproarious adventures. As Hallie navigates life's unexpected paths, she soon discovers that money and love can occasionally cause a lot more problems than they solve. Yet with friends, family, and a place to call home, your heart's desire is oftentimes right around the corner...if you're willing to take a chance on life.
