SummaryAdd a Summary
Isabel Spellman has worked at her family's firm, Spellman Investigations, for as long as she can remember. Having recently been fired, a wealthy client and benefactor aids her in gaining purchase of her siblings shares of the business, thus putting her in the position of power. This takeover does not sit well with her parents, who stage a rebellion of sorts; showing up for work in PJ's, boxers, etc, or not showing up at all. She should have expected a backlash. As she struggles to keep the business afloat, but her parents are acting so strange she fears they are headed for divorce and her father's eventual illness causes her to confront his mortality. Realizing she is not cut out to totally run the business,sister Rae steps back into the picture to help manage the business. Izzy is suspicious of everything involving family at this point, but has no choice.
In the process of doing a job for her benefactor, Mr. Slayter, an endearing relationship develops between the two. Feeling beholden to him, Izzy helps keep the fact that he has Alzheimer's from becoming public knowledge in order to protect his business and reputation. But someone else is out to destroy it by embezzling funds and shifting the blame to Izzy. Izzy must find the culprit before the FBI closes in and she loses the family business.
