After four years, Eden Harper's esteemed fashion boutique is getting a makeover, an overhaul actually. Not only is she excited, so are her dedicated customers, the city, her family, and her beloved Nelson Donnelly, son of one of Hollywood's golden era stars. While the work's being done, Eden discovers a major deficit in the renovation budget. The money had been stolen from her bank account. So, in addition to worrying about who stole it, concerns about paying for the work weighs her down more.
When the opportunity for getting the money repaid arises, she's grateful, but she also discovers the additional costs for the boutique and her life with Nelson as she knows and loves that come with it are too much for her to bear. How much of that price is she willing to pay?
