marry. Now he regrets hiring her firm to oversee a gala
he is throwing although she and her partner Harry Byrne

Grace Miller hires artist Gen Monaghan to paint a mural at
Children's Hospital in Boston and even offers the young
artist the use of her late husband's studio in Long
Island. At the same time, Alex buys a painting done by
Gen. When he finds out that his aunt is allowing an
artist to use the studio, he has Gen investigated.
