Reeling from the death of her domineering father, Zara Pines accepts a ghostwriting gig for celebrity chef Jane Bailey. Jane, star of the thrifty and wildly popular cooking show 30 Bucks Top, invites Zara to live in her East Hampton estate for the summer. Jane insists–this way, they can truly get to know each other.

As Zara starts to fall for Jane romantically, Jane sloughs off the curated personality she maintains for the media. Zara spends all of her time in Jane’s estate, shadowing Jane’s life–even wearing Jane’s clothes. As they become ever more linked, Zara watches as she changes in ways she never expected. Can Zara get out before Jane subsumes her?
