At 54, Althea Carmichael is seriously unhappy with her life. Her now decade long widowhood keeps her tethered to a restaurant business she still doesn't want, but can't give up because she has a sick mother-in-law in a nursing home financially dependent on her. Her life is a endless series of hectic work days trying to keep the failing business alive just a little bit longer. Then as if that wasn't enough problems, Morgan Reed comes along and says he wants to date her. Despite the fact that Thea doesn't want the complications of a relationship, Morgan talks his way into her bed. Now she is practically addicted to the man and he's leaving in a few months. His looming departure is difficult enough to handle, but nothing compares to discovering Morgan’s real agenda for getting close to her was because he believes she's been scamming money from his elderly father. Angry at herself as much as at him, Thea does the only sane thing she can and kicks the jaded, cynical man out of her life for good.
