What’s the recipe for a happy marriage?
That’s what chef Jill Morgan Storm wants to know, and according to responses to the “Marriage Satisfaction Surveys” she and her closest friends cooked up, the answer is to marry a traveling salesman who is rarely home.
And Jill certainly deserves some happiness, after everything she’s been going through. Her teen-aged son, who only speaks to her in French, needs college tuition. Her crazy mother is determined to find her a man—and only brings her unsuitable ones. A pesky schoolteacher keeps annoyingly trying to fix her life. Her sous chef job is in jeopardy, and, most aggravating of all, her ex-boyfriend has absconded with her favorite skillet.<
What’s a single mom to do?
Faced with the answers to her surveys, she sets off to find the traveling salesman who can share her dreams. Along the way, can she find herself and a man who will claim her heart?
Never under estimate the schemes and plans that are formed when lifelong girlfriends get together for drinks 🙂
That being said, we meet Jill Storm, a sous chef working at a prestigious Las Vegas hotel. She is a single mom raising a moody, artistic, teenaged son. She tries to be supportive of her ex-husband who now goes by the name “Stormie” after a undergoing a gender change procedure. She is stressed about how to afford college tuition for her son. Not to mention she is turning the big 4-0 and wonders if she will ever find true love.
Now back to the afore mentioned “schemes and plans” … she sent out a survey to wives in really long term marriages asking their secrets to marital bliss. We then learn of all her escapades while trying to find the perfect mate 🙂
