In Stone's uninspired second romance (following These Darn Heels), smart, no-nonsense Caroline Summers reluctantly heads from Chicago to her Iowa hometown to take care of her septuagenarian father, Ray (after a stroke), and teach at the same high school where she wowwed 15 years ago as a cheerleader and play actress. Prickly and humorless by the standards of old friend Marnie, Caroline instantly rubs the handsome new assistant in her father's hardware store, Paul Winters, the wrong way. She needs Paul's help, however, in constructing the set of the play she hopes to put on (Our Town, of course). As Caroline tends to overgrown child Ray, she works to warm up to her estranged hometown and to transform into someone romantically accessible to perfect match Paul. There are no surprises along the way.
