Paul Shelton, lead singer of the 1990s one-hit-wonder band, Ultravinyl, seeks Kate's help to cash in on a lucrative offer for use of their song in a commercial. What seems like a slam dunk stalls when Paul's former bandmates refuse to negotiate, and Paul reveals the real reason he needs Kate's help.
A music licensing deal proves more complicated than originally anticipated, when two of the three original members of a one-hit-wonder band refuse to license their hit song for a commercial. But it isnít greed thatís holding Mac and Sherry, now happily married public school teachers, backóitís that they want nothing to do with the third band member, Paul Shelton. And as Kate soon discovers, the licensing deal isnít about money for Paul either; heís dying, and with only a few months left to live, wants to reconnect with his former bandmates and their teenage son Brandon. Can Kate convince the former friends to let the past go and focus on rebuilding a relationship in the short time they have left, or have too many bridges been burned?
A case between two online gamers proves a bit less complicatedóthat is, once Kate manages to get the two parties involved to face each other in person. Online gaming might be multi-million dollar industry, but as it turns out, thereís just no substitution for real human contact.
Of course, that doesnít always work out as planned either, as Kate is reminded when a lawsuit from the buyers of Kate and Justinís old condo stirs up memories from their marriage. And despite all her efforts, Kateís attempts to persuade David Smith to talk are met with little success, and it begins to look as though the truth behind Teddyís past remains may never come to light.
