Suzanne Braun had it all - beauty, status and money. Then her husband died - but unfortunately not before making a series of foolish investments that squandered her inheritance. When a promising relationship with a wealthy and aging suitor founders during prenuptial negotiations, Suzanne finds herself a social pariah, universally regarded as an unscrupulous golddigger. Her prospects look bleak until her late husband's brother, Douglas, invites her to spend the summer at Inglewood, the family cottage on Lake Joseph, a playground for Toronto's uber-rich. Suzanne heads north with one goal in mind: to return home with a wealthy fiance in tow. Douglas' wife Catherine dreads Suzanne's arrival. She fears that the sexy widow will set her sights on her brother, Mark, a successful businessman who is returning to Canada after 14 years in Japan. The prospect that this social climbing opportunist might penetrate the family circle is too horrible to contemplate, and Catherine will stop at nothing to prevent it. An irresistible force is about to meet an immovable object.
