Charming to come charging in on his white steed ever since the day her mother read her Cinderella for the first time. But she's never come close to finding
the perfect man-instead she's always tripping over her childhood best friend, Will.
And who finds their Prince Charming on a 10-speed bicycle on the other
side of the cul de sac? Well... Julianne does. Only she doesn't have a clue.
She and Will are attorneys now, and they've joined up in private practice in a beautiful
Cincinnati office building that overlooks the Ohio River. And then one day Julianne
is on her way to court, and runs right smack dab into Prince Charming. But when
she looks again, all she finds is a metaphoric sign she is certain came straight
from Heaven: The Prince's toolbox has fallen off the back of his truck, and a work
boot along with it. What better way for God to grab the attention of a Cinderella-in-training
than to show her a glass slipper...errrr, work boot?...waiting to be reunited
with its owner?
So she sets out to track down the mysterious Prince Charming. He's the most gorgeous guy she's ever seen...and a caring animal rescuer, too. Surely
he must be the soul mate God has prepared her for.
But, Julianne's prince is starting to look less and less charming all the time. No matter how
she tries to romanticize him, he just keeps tumbling down off that dumb pedestal.
And with the Bar Association dinner coming up that will honor her for her outstanding
charity work over the year, Julianne wants so much for her friends and colleagues
to see her with someone besides her best friend Will. To make matters worse, Prince
Charming has no designs on wearing a penguin suit and attending a stuffy old dinner.
With her pride pressing in on her like sticks from a cactus, Julianne sinks to the
bottom of the proverbial barrel and actually offers to pay Paul to be her date.
Julianne is on a collision course with God's perfect plan for her life...if only she could
open her eyes and see it before it's too late.
