It Can Happen to You
The summer heat is taking its toll on newspaper columnist Penny Stevens. As a regular contributor to the three-times-a-week paper, the Sentinel, Stevens is the financial advisor for many of the readers from North and West Vancouver where author Lynn Crymble has set her first novel.
Caught in a middle-aged slump, Stevens is confronted with a life-changing experience when she retrieves the cash savings of a retired couple that they’ve left in a paper bag outside. That action leads to coverage in the Sentinel and instant local celebrity status. Her co-workers convince her to participate in a life makeover and before she knows it interior designers, gardeners, photographers, yoga instructors, and many more are charging through her carefully constructed life.
