Summary If love is an adventure, Kenya McQueen has yet to be embarked upon it. A beautiful L.A. career woman, Kenya works as a senior manager at a prestigious accounting firm, and is on the verge of making partner. But she has yet to find her own partner and a fulfilling personal life. After another Valentine's Day spent working late, Kenya agrees to a blind date with Brian, a sexy and free-spirited landscape architect who is not exactly what she'd pictured for herself. Then again, she does need the yard of her new house fixed up. Her girlfriends are there for her with advice. Kenya's socially prominent parents Joyce and Edmond and womanizing younger brother Nelson also voice their own opinions. But it's when her perfect match, Mark, enters the picture that Kenya is truly thrown into confusion and ultimately, Kenya has to decide for herself what she truly wants.
