Daphne loves living in the house that she inherited after her aunts death, the only problem is the stipulations. According to the will she has to marry within a year of receiving the home, or she'll have to find a new place to live. Question is how is she going to do that if she doesn't see anyone who is even interested and she has to continue running her aunts advice column? She has to find a way to do both within a year, all while working on a novel.
But luckily she has found a new friend, a nice girl who has moved in across the street. A girl who resembles a Malibu Barbie, who carries around a yelping chihuahua. From the minute this nice girl asked to borrow Daphne's shower, they were instant friends. Within a few minutes the girl is willing to help Daphne find the one, the special guy who is to help her stay in that amazing home. But when is that guy going to pop up and help? Because Daphne doesn't see him anywhere.
