Look out New York City! Ms. Rayanne "Annie" McCauley from little old Mesa View, Texas has set her sights on being a high fashion model. Despite her humble beginnings in the Mesa View Mobile Home Park, hot tempered Annie thinks she can make it all the way to the cover of Women's Wear Daily (as long as she follows her own rules).
She may also snag the heart of sexy Tomi Di Ponti, the CEO of Di Ponti Cosmetics and Fashions, but not without a lot of trouble from her arch rival, Brittany Carstairs, another alumnus of the trailer park and a woman who never met a nasty trick she didn't use. When it looks like things can't get any worse, along comes Luther Grolsch, handsome, dangerous and possibly the most annoying man Annie ever met.
Hilarious situations and quirky characters make this romantic, comedy, mystery, adventure a must read.
Annie McCauley has been described as the Calamity Jane of high fashion, but she may finally be getting her big break in the modeling world. She's moved to New York and rented a small apartment in Queens. Her best friend, Luis, a diminutive, gay, Latino, makeup artist lives right across the hall. She aced her first interview with handsome, Tomi Di Ponti and is ready for her second interview, where she expects to be given the job as spokesmodel for the new Czarina line of cosmetics and fashions.
But things rarely go smoothly for Annie and before she knows it, Brittany has pulled one of her dirty tricks and it looks like Annie may not get the job after all. However, with the help of Luis and the understanding of Tomi things seem to be working out. Brittany isn't easily beaten and through an elaborate plan it appears she's working against Annie behind the scenes.
Comical mishaps, the Rigatoni, a vertically challenged gang of old world mobsters, and Nonni, the grandmother from hell, all make Annie's dream seem just out of reach. Like Stephanie Plum, Annie is a hard working, good-hearted woman who may be in over her head.
Enter Ida and her son, Luther Grolsch, a very sexy man that Annie feels might be the most annoying man she's ever met. Together they try to keep Annie alive and find out who is really behind the sabotage that seems to be aimed at the Di Ponti Company and Annie in particular. Will Annie and Tomi ever get together? Who Hired the Rigatoni Gang? Find out in Annie's 1st Break where a small town gal goes to the big city and meets two very different men. Which one will she choose?
