Donna O' Connor, raising a teenage son whose father tends to ignore him, and reeling from a tumultuous marriage to same, returns to find her car illegally parked and Officer Mark Evans, a blue-eyed hunk in uniform, coming out of the post office aimed directly for her vehicle. Instead of a ticket, they agree to have coffee.
Because he's afraid he'll scare her off, Mark won't tell her he has a young, autistic son. She won't tell him about her miserable marriage and her hopes and dreams of leaving her grueling office job and oppressive manager.
Donna's life includes a three legged dog, a rabbit named Fundus, and a wonderful son who understands his mother is doing her best for him. Mark is torn between getting the right care for his son and doing what is right for Donna.
Through a multitude of miscommunications, intrusion from Donna's well meaning mother and Mark's senile father, and hilariously funny star-crossed scenarios Donna and Mark finally connect when she lands a day care position where Mark's son, Jack, is in care.
In this wonderful story of love and redemption the animals play a large part including Jack's service dog, Starbuck.
Well done, once again, Sheryl!
