Live the ultimate second chance …

Wheelchair-bound Jennie has been secretly in love with her private eye boss, Sam, for years. When she dies and gets a second chance in another woman’s body, Jennie decides to start fresh as the perfect woman for Sam. There’s only one hitch—she’s come back as his ex-wife, Maxine. Even worse, the person who killed Maxine is trying to finish the job, and Jennie must convince a reluctant Sam to protect her body … and to fall in love with her soul.
