Lauren Douglas never imagined she would wake up one day and find herself the star of the hottest soap on daytime television. But as wholesome, smart and lovely Dr. Kate, she is plastered over the media as a role model and inspiration for young women. Just as she is about to sign a bloated new contract, Lauren is publicly outed. Scrambling for damage control, her father, a Congressman, wants her banished abroad and her network writes her temporarily out of the show in a plane crash. As if the slavering press doesn't have enough to report, a creepy fan enraged by the revelation, shoots her. All of which means zip to FBI Special Agent Pat Roussel, whose hunt for the Kiddy Pageant Killer has consumed every waking moment for three years. Suffering from burnout, and hoping fresh new eyes might come up with a break in the case, Pat reluctantly elects to take a few months leave without pay. The last thing she expects to find herself doing in her time off is an illicit private security gig babysitting a celebrity.
