  • Great introduction to a great family series. How nice to be able to sit down and not worry about a show's content!

    Zoë Busiek is suddenly confronted with the death of her sister and the immense task of looking after two nieces and a nephew. A world away from being a Black Jack dealer in Las Vegas she has to return to Chicago and resume a 'normal' life ... but not before she determines to find out how her sister really died. How could she ever look those little innocents in the eye without proving their mother was not a reckless driver!

    Enter Dan Lennox ... massive eye candy ... as the Insurance investigator who is to be consistently overwhelmed by Zoë's determination to reach the truth!

    However Dan is not the only possible new beau ... when Cliff is late for school, Zoë finds that Cliff's Coach is none other than her ex-boyfriend ... Marcos Morales! Cute!

    The scene is set for a great show ... and with Zoë solving the case and getting a new job ... not only as an Insurance Investigator but also as a new mom to Taylor, Hannah and Cliff ... which is going to be quite a task in itself! But she has the right idea ... when Taylor’s ‘boyfriend’ Ted comes round, Zoë gets him to write down all his personal info and tells him that curfew is at 11.30pm! “I am surprised you didn’t ask him for his fingerprints!” says Taylor. “Oh that’s a good idea … Ted …!” “Not Funny!” says Taylor.
