Denise Reed is an over-educated, unemployed youth minister about to drive her mother crazy. Denise (along with her adorable daughter Emily) has been hiding out at her mother's home in New Orleans, pretending to job hunt while feeling sorry for herself. She accompanies her mother one Tuesday to Riverview, an exclusive independent living facility, to volunteer. While helping one of the residents, Louise Butler, retrieve her sweater, Denise learns about the mysterious death of an aide, Tina Moore, and a rash of small thefts. It seems that a few week before, Tina Moore reported a theft at the luxury retirement home. Within 24 hours, the girl was dead. Was it an accident? Or something more? Is someone really stealing at Riverview? Denise, with the encouragement of her new friend Louise, takes a position at Riverview and begins to investigate the thefts and Tina's accident. Before she knows it, she is Tai Chi-ing her way out of her unemployment funk, crushing on a Jason Statham look-alike named Jason, and avoiding a pimple-faced thug. Will she be able to sort out who she can trust? Or will she end up like Tina Moore?"
