There seems to be a lot at stake: The Blue Bistro is in its final summer, before closing its doors for good. Adrienne gets a crash course in the restaurant business and things seem to be going smoothly...until Thatch makes Adrienne break one of her cardinal rules, which is never date the boss. Instant chemistry notwithstanding, Adrienne can't quite shake the feeling that there's something more to Thatch's relationship with his brilliant chef Fiona. It's a mystery she can't quite solve. Does she open her heart for the first time, or move on, as she always does?
