Eve Appel and her best friend Madeleine run a consignment shop together in rural Florida. Madeleine is also an author, and now she wants to switch from writing children's books to mystery novels. So she drags Eve to a writers' conference, hoping her friend will bolster her confidence during her big pitch to an agent. It soon looks as if Eve isn't going to make that appointment. A case of mistaken identity results in her agreeing to pose as the person she has been mistaken for. It doesn't hurt that the special agent assigned to the case is a hunk. When his plan to keep her from harm goes awry, Eve finds herself in the trunk of a car, en route to the swamps, where the hungry alligators await their dinner.
