Mac Stephens' last birthday was spectacular, for all the wrong reasons.

Being unceremoniously dumped with no explanation and then fired from a job she actually enjoyed on the same day that she turned thirty, was enough to send her running straight back home and into the arms of her adoring father.

But that was six months ago, and it's time she moved on.

Mackinley River Downs has been in the Stephens family for generations, however, it's now also part of a government investigation and Felix Anderson, the broodingly handsome resident manager is forced to do the one thing he swore he'd never do, ask the owner for help.

In a dodgy hotdog induced delirium Mac agrees she owes her father a favour and takes off to the other side of the world to help save a business she knows absolutely nothing about, in surroundings she's never seen anything like before.

Sparks fly and frustrations burn on the search for common ground in unfamiliar territory.

She and the groom have fault. BOTH not just HER, BOTH! Yeah she maybe was drunk but you still kinda know what your doing. And he was about to get married, he wasn't ready to settle down if he jump at the first "heartbroken" girl around.

Yo, check my "life of jean" story out. Comedy and it's not very long at all so it won't take along time to read. Thanks to anyone who checks it out.
