Hollywood star Hailey Ross returns to her hometown of Starling Bay, feeling like a fish out of water.
But on meeting Jackson Miller, a security guard at the local mall, things suddenly become even more awkward.
When Hailey left over a decade ago it was with great relief. The gawky teenager was suddenly discovered by a talent scout and when Hollywood beckoned, she left Sleepy Starling Bay behind her.
Jackson has always lived in Starling Bay, a place where nothing much happens, not even at the local mall where he works as a security guard.
He doesn't understand, nor care for, the townspeople's fascination with the movie star diva.
Until he ends up working for her. And that's when everything changes.
Because when uptown girl meets small town guy, life is most definitely not a bed of roses.
