Roxanne Platt knows she’s not perfect. But she also knows there’s got to be more to life than scanning groceries. As she scours the Classifieds, she is struck by the lack of opportunities, contrasted by the almost endless real estate ads. Recalling an agent in her checkout line–short on sense and long on enthusiasm–Roxanne wonders why she couldn’t enjoy the same success as Lois Bronsen–top 2% in the county.
After first dismissing the notion as absurd, Roxanne boldly takes the plunge into the character-ridden world of real estate. What she discovers as she wades into shark-infested waters is a talent for negotiating and problem-solving, and an inner strength she didn’t know she possessed–not to mention a pool of eligible bachelors.
Armed with an acerbic wit, her best friend Andrea’s unwavering support, and the willpower to make a better life for herself and her son, Roxanne forges ahead. The unintended consequences of romantic encounters thrill Andrea to no end, but keep Roxanne’s head spinning. The question she has to ask herself is this: can she fall in love, keep her dignity and still become successful?
