Fortified by hot dogs and Starbucks coffee, savvy advertising executive Monty West tackles the challenges of promotion, romance and shifting corporate loyalties. When her Seattle-based magazine becomes the object of a takeover attempt by Vannesse Industries, a global communications firm based in Paris, sparks fly personally and professionally between Monty and CEO Jean Claude Vannesse. As part of the corporate transition team, Monty travels to Paris and her situation gets even more complicated-do Jean Claude's acquisition plans include her? Despite her fast-paced business life, Monty makes time for personal reflection and often seeks the advice of Fog, a street vendor who dispenses wise Eastern philosophy along with his hot dog relish. She gains additional balance from good friends, good wine, and her canine companion, Cinnamon.
