As if that werent humiliating enough, she must also deal with Ben Reed, the fortune cookie companys admittedly gorgeous but apparently ill-mannered tax attorney, after Grace inadvertently commits the mother of all social transgressions in his presence. To make matters even worse, someone at the company is anonymously leaving fortune cookies on Graces desk containing fortunes she thinks are meant to tell her something—but what? While Ben, in turn, may be amused by the circumstances under which he met Grace, his confidential investigation into potential irregularities in the company books, coupled with Graces sudden employment with his valued client, just dont add up.
Suspicious, he decides to stick close to the rosy-cheeked stranger despite the highly unorthodox nature of their first meeting. As Grace navigates her way through a new and unconventional job, a puzzling mystery akin to a game of Clue, and an exasperatingly attractive man with a sudden and perplexing interest in her, she has no idea that fate is leading her down the path to an entirely new way of looking at life…and love.
