Jacqueline arrives at the hotel to a massive affair of hype, gaudy decorations, and fans. She is pleased to meet Dubretta Duberstein, a poison-tongued newspaper columnists with a cynical outlook on the entire romance scene, particularly "Aunt Hattie", the self-proclaimed ruler of agents. At the conference cocktail party, Dubretta dies unexpectedly and Jacqueline, against the wishes of the local police department (Lieutenant O'Brien), decides to investigate. Through a series of conversations, a parade of strange characters, Dubretta's lost notebook, and chases across Manhattan, Jacqueline solves the case and finishes her first romance novel.
