Connie Corda has always been the nicest woman in Hollywood. But when her beloved husband dies and their best friend mysteriously drops her, her lonely, widowed misery spills over into her work.
Vince Davis doesn't mind; four women with tempers have married and divorced him so far. For twenty years, Connie and Sam were his only example of a happy couple. Now Sam's death confronts Vince with the uncomfortable truth that he wants Connie for himself ... and guilt sends him running in the opposite direction.
But he can't run very far when they're co-starring in a buddy's movie.
Their buddy the director schemes to bring them together. He asks Vince to turn up the heat on Connie "so she won't wreck the picture." Vince reluctantly agrees. "She'll kill me if she finds out you set her up."
Of course Connie knows she's being set up. And she intends to make her old friends pay. While concocting the perfect payback, she comes back to life ... and finds herself, and new love.
