Cody Keaton truly believes that money doesn’t buy happiness.
She believes this so strongly that when she hits big in the lottery
she considers throwing the ticket away. Once she talks herself off
that ledge she vows to use the money only for security, a
decision that she honestly believes she can follow. She’s not
going to be one of those people who blows it on houses and cars
and loses it all.
Her aunts, uncles, cousins and extended family don’t share her
view—but most of them itch to share her money.
The local bank manager, Maddie Osborne, quickly sees that
Cody’s going to be in a world of trouble if she doesn’t make
some tough financial decisions. Given that Cody’s never been
inside a bank, her learning curve is steep. Maddie finds herself
drawn to protecting the unsophisticated woman from the people
who are trying to separate Cody from her fortune—even her
nearest and dearest.
