Lois Winstonabout this book: The worst day of Nori Stedworth's life just got a whole lot worse. After finding her boyfriend and best friend cavorting naked in his hot tub, she arrives home to discover her mother camped out on her front steps. Mom has arrived with several suitcases of clothes and crafts supplies, along with an agenda: she's determined to bring Nori back to Iowa to marry town mortician and most eligible bachelor Eugene Draymore.
But both the day and Nori's life continue to deteriorate as she learns her company has gone bankrupt and she's lost her job.
What's a girl to do? Enter Gertie, Nori's childhood imaginary friend. Gertie has attitude, and she's not afraid to use it. If only Nori would follow her advice...
When a laptop mix-up lands Nori's conversations with Gertie in the hands of radio station manager Mackenzie Randolph, he sees the solution to his sagging ratings, and Nori sees the solution to her unemployment. Mom sees trouble.
But Mom's original agenda takes a detour when she meets Nori's entrepreneurial neighbor and begins to listen to her own inner voice.
