Release date: January 2019
When they meet, Pete is a student who needs a place to live, Daisy is a young woman in a family bind who needs a husband. She’s a bred and born New Yorker, he’s from the vineyards of Tuscany, but when they meet, sparks fly, as though they were meant to be.

“I’ll call Ellen and see if Audrey can come over here, okay?” Daisy said. “Relax, Pete, please, I need you with all your faculties.”
