They discovered the great love where she never thought she would …

Da bietet sich ihr plötzlich eine einmalige Chance: Sie soll dem sexy Schauspieler Luther Carson bei seiner Biografie helfen. Also fliegt Alice nach Sizilien und begibt sich auf die Reise ihres Lebens. Sie entdeckt die große Liebe, wo sie sie nie vermutet hätte …
