What happens when a big, untidy, golden bear of a man from the West Coast moves into a glamorous house full of cream carpeting and treasured art objects? A house you’ve promised your sister you’ll maintain in new-coin condition?
If you’re March Briarwood—energetic CEO of Marchmaids Inc., a cleaning service fighting to stay on top—you preserve the house unscathed (well, almost) and end by taming the bear as well.
Naturally, there are complications along the way, as when Hunt Reynolds, wildlife biologist, brings home orphaned chipmunks, homeless students, stray dogs…. Worse still, despite the irate messages they trade on answering machines, March finds herself attracted to the man.
What could possibly bring together two people with such radically different approaches to life, liberty and dirty laundry? Could it be that Saturday feeling?
