Bella is funny, smart, and addicted to lipstick. Unlike life, lipstick never lets her down. After ten years of marriage, Bella’s husband, Craig, left her for her half sister, Sophia. Bella and Sophia used to be close. Now, they’re not speaking to each other which is difficult since they both work in the family business. When Bella meets Sean Ryan, he helps her create her own identity by developing and distributing customized makeup kits. Professionally, Bella is busy perfecting her kits, working in her father’s beauty salons, and off site as a makeup artist. Personally, she is grieving the loss of her husband and her stepchildren. After applying makeup at a wedding, Bella is asked to watch the bride’s dog. The glamorous little pooch turns out to be like an item at Bella’s favorite Christmas tree shops. Although she didn’t know she needed it, once she saw it, she didn’t want to live without it. With the help of Sean and some of her family members, Bella goes to great lengths to keep her new canine companion.
