In a guesthouse, as in politics, appearances are everything. Avril is the perfect hostess, managing the Bella Vista with grace and charm. But when her husband, Steven, decides to run for mayor, Avril is incensed: where would she be without Steven to clean the bathrooms? Avril sets about undermining Steven's campaign with an instinct for local government as sharp as her talent for domestic politics. Steven retaliates with all the guile at his disposal. The battle lines are drawn!
