While working off her debt
to society in a Minneapolis mall, former prep school princess Miranda Prospero
now wears a different crown—one with a spinning frankfurter on top!
One day, Miranda is doing

the city. Suddenly she, as well as the other mall workers and plenty die-hard
shoppers, are stranded in the building.
Stuck in the shopping center

hatches an elaborate plan, one that may just include bad boy Caleb…who turns
out to actually have a heart of gold.
Among all the chaos of the
plan, there’s another small issue brewing. While Miranda is worrying over her
reputation, an armed robber might just be on the loose, with only a rent-a-cop
on his tail.
