Charleston native Celeste Logan is the face for her father's real estate company. She's been trained from an early age to sweet talk people into accepting million-dollar deals and is in all the commercials. When her father's death is wrongly portrayed as an accident, it will take more than a little bit of sugar to get John Sanders, her father's jerkwad, right-hand guy, to confess to murder. Celeste spies on Sanders to get the evidence she needs, only to be stalled by Beau Andrews.
Beau is clever, seductive, a private detective, and he's working for Sanders. Celeste believes her only way to find what she wants is through Beau, but while she's looking for a way in, there's someone else preying her.
Between a mugging, a car chase, random dead carcass deposits on her porch, and other meanie things happening to her, she's a little too out of breath to find the words to win Beau over.
