Miss Gertrude Cadwalader hoped her position as the paid
companion to Mrs. Davenport would be easy. But as she
becomes acquainted with her employer, she realizes the
wealthy Mrs. Davenport has a strange tendency to be a bit
light-fingered with other people's trinkets. Gertrude is
relieved when Mrs. Davenport decides to have a quiet
summer away from the social scene--until the woman
changes her mind in order to help a young socialite
launch into society.
When Gertrude is caught in the act of trying to return
one of the trinkets by Mrs. Sinclair, the mother of
shipping magnate Harrison Sinclair, the woman jumps to an
unfortunate conclusion. Harrison is determined to mend
fences with Miss Cadwalader, but he's unprepared for the
escapades a friendship with her will entail.
