They say money can buy happiness.
Emily Parker is trying to make bank to prove that saying right but no matter how hard she pounds the pavement in peep-toe heels and pencil skirts, she's nowhere near the success that her father, a career salesman, always said she would have.
At the brink of losing a deal that could cost her more than she can afford, Emily quickly loses the spring in her step and the usually present smile on her face. 
On what's likely the worst night of her life, she finds herself stranded in the company of her intriguing neighbor whose laid-back outlook in life only highlights her own lack of it. 
Suddenly unplugged from the pressures of her life, Emily rediscovers the simple pleasures she'd long taken for granted, forcing her to question if the dream she's traded them for was even hers to begin with.
She's about to make the pitch of her life-to chase her own happiness. 
The question is, can she afford it?

Her father has a point, I swear I enter a shop knowing exactly what I want and when I exist I find I bought a lot of things that I wasn't even thinking about or needing

Expound basically means to explain in case someone didn't know.
