There is an old saying that goes, "Everything that looks good, may not be good for you." This could be said of Danielle Thompson's life. From the outside looking in, you could assume Danielle has it all-a big house, a husband and a steady job. The reader soon discovers that Ms. Danielle is a mess in progress. In the beginning, her husband may have loved her, but his love has quickly turned into lies and contempt stemming from news he was not mature enough to handle. The one person who will always have her back is her best friend Janice Taylor. Janice is a sassy, upbeat woman of color who has more drama in her life than any soap opera. The two women come to work at the Lucky Heart Casino in Indiana, where the workers hope to find adventure aboard the riverboat. But what they end up finding is themselves.
