Mo finally has a place of her own. It might be empty but that's easily remedied. Then a date/shopping trip with Tony to New Orleans ends on a sour note. By the time it's over, she's spent most of her money- but not on household items.Gertie, ever eager to help, decides Mo needs charitable donations from the good people of Sinful.

Between the action at Mo's house, her peeping neighbor, and Ida Belle having an unexpected dilemma of her own to deal with, things in Sinful can only get worse before they get better.
