Sandi Cramer's TV show, Love Cookin', is nominated for an Emmy. She can't forget her early years around 1990 at the bankrupt little station in Iowa where her show began, and the man who came to town to make the station succeed or to fire everyone and shut it down. Josh Pressman saw her talent potential and a lot more. Attracted to her, he struggled to remember that small town girls like Sandi were off limits because they played for keeps. When "accidents" started happening during her show, he had to find the culprit to save the station and to protect Sandi. But when Sandi unwittingly helps the culprit, she knows Josh is left with little choice but to fire her. That will end the station and their budding love.
