Description

It's the '50s in New York City, and Catriona Benedict has big dreams, but when her first promising gig as an actress is a flop, she has to figure out some other way to make a living in the big city. Enter Miles Kingston, a rich and influential playboy who, for reasons of his own, asks Catriona to take on the biggest role of her life...as his wife. Despite her boyfriend's misgivings about the arrangement, Catriona knows that this could easily be the most lucrative acting job she's ever had. All she has to do is keep up the act for a few weeks, and she'll walk away with thousands. When tragedy strikes, the whole arrangement threatens to strangle Catriona. She quickly realizes that living with the Kingston family is a much more delicate and dangerous affair than she ever could have guessed. And if she isn't convincing in the role of Mrs. Kingston, much more than just her acting career will be at stake.show more
