What should have been one of the best times in Davis Way Cole’s life had become the absolute worst. Instead of celebrating the birth of her twin baby girls Bexley and Quinn, Davis is frantic over the survival of Biloxi’s Bellissimo Resort and Casino. A new competing Blitz resort, constructed virtually next door, has decimated Bellissimo’s business and forced them to cut their staff nearly in half.

An undercover super secret spy for the Biloxi Bellissimo Resort and Casino, Davis Way Cole, is finding that even her stellar skills are challenged by being six months pregnant with twins. It’s a condition that is convenient for her secondary, but just as crucial, assignment as the stand-in for Bianca Casimiro Sanders. Bianca is not handling her own pregnancy gracefully, and as a result Davis will be modeling as Bianca on board the MS Probability, a luxurious half-billion-dollar yacht catering to fifty of the wealthiest gamblers in the world.

This is in addition to her secondary job as the lookalike stand-in for Bianca Casimiro Sanders, the owner’s wife. Bianca delegates unappealing duties to Davis, such as boring media events, charity dinners, and meetings with her son’s school board. Davis is less prepared for her own impending wedding to attorney Bradley Cole. The situation resolves itself when the ceremony is cancelled due to Bianca’s dog pool-related construction fire. The fact that Davis just learned that she is still married to her ex-ex-husband (she made the same mistake twice) is a somewhat more alarming.
