Ruby Mortimer-Smyth has what should be the perfect life. Married to man who has the perfect career mapped out, she has had the best upbringing money can buy. She is trained in etiquette, understands the correct way to act in all social situations and yet she never quite feels enough. Brought up in competition with her step-sister Claire, Ruby is on the verge of getting the one thing that Claire always wanted but never managed to achieve. To live in Paris.
Until it all goes wrong. Her husband, Edward, did such a good job of his last campaign that rather than transfer him to the lucrative new campaign in Paris, his company decide he must be the one to try and win a lucrative new pet supplies deal. In Kansas.
