The award-winning Catie Bloom is back! And she’s still got it all. A husband, a successful career, and she's America's #1 Domestic Goddess. Except, it's a big fat lie. She can’t cook, she’s a slob, and her husband left her years ago. But she’s trying to change all that and become an honest woman.
Too bad someone has other ideas for her.
Catie’s life comes crumbling down when she’s outed on national TV by a person she thought she trusted. And in that instant she loses everything. Her job, her sister, and the man she loves—Sam Harding. So much for “the one.” When Catie needs Sam the most he disappears...with his ex. Then two miracles happen: a new man steps into the picture eager to help Catie, and a New York socialite hires Catie to do the one thing Catie’s truly talented at: interior design. The great news: the multi-million dollar loft Catie’s designing will be featured in all the top design magazines. The bad news: Catie has to keep her involvement a secret.
As she tries to find a way to reveal she’s the woman behind the design, Sam returns. And with him comes a twist she never saw coming.
Will Catie find her happily-ever-after or will her big white lies ruin her life forever?
