Astonishing secret of Behren's Lake revealed! Jaime Wentworth lives on the cusp between fortune and futility. When her jet-setting, absentee parents are drowned at sea, she becomes owner of LaFon Cosmetics Inc., and goes from loneliness to cruelty at the hands of Gordon Wentworth who married her with control of Lafon billions in mind. But, Uncle Max Allbright becomes her guardian and assumes stewardship of LaFon on her behalf. Gordon, furious at this roadblock, has her declared incompetent and commits her to a sanitarium. To lose her sons, Sky and Tracy, nearly overwhelms her, but adversity only gives her strength and resolve. She escapes, determined to find them. A support group refers her to a safe organization in Albany, NY that places her in the home of Beatrix Hudson. There are four other residents, Professor Robert Stillwell; author, Lillian Schofield; and two very interesting cats. They become her family, and help her to survive the traumas that dog her 24/7. She is car-jacked, voodoo'd, and accosted for her money. Jaime swears off men forever...until she meets Mitch Austen, widower, on leave from FBI assignments, and father of a 12-year-old daughter, "Mega." The tide turns for her when she's hit by a baseball while watching a Little League practice, and the coach, Mitch, comes over to apologize for the "spectator abuse." That was cute, but she holds fast to her conviction that all men are trouble, and she's had her fill. Or has she?
