Tom Campbell joined the US army after breaking up with Chelsea, who meanwhile became mayor of his Midwest home town. Tom returns there to run his grandmother’s B&B “Cupid’s” while she’s in hospital, hoping to become a professional bodyguard afterward with his army buddy Steve, but she dies. Saving her legacy proves a nightmare, as she delayed crucial repairs and has enormous tax arrears. The regional tycoon’s ambitious son Jerry, Cheslea’s fiancé, bids on the B&B because he knows about a planned road which would make it a perfect mall location. Tom falls in love with the local girl who is about to succeed his kinsman Kip Caldwell as chief of police.
