An experienced house-sitting couple gets more than they bargain for when a Minnesota homeowner intentionally double-books her lakefront domicile through Housesitters.com in order to ensure she can get away from it all for an entire month. When the second house-sitting couple arrives, there is an-immediate clash between generations. In one corner, there are the upper middleclass and socially-skilled Julians from New Jersey, and in the opposite corner, the anti-materialist and free spirited vegans from North Carolina who have decided they don't even need a last name. Personalities collide even further when the Bombays from next door add their own twist to being neighborly with either a constant barrage of trivial pursuits or an onslought of candid crankiness. And if that weren't enough for the Julians to deal with, they got another surprise...the uninhabitable master suite is in the midst of being actively remodeled by the Cheshires, a **** of sisters, two of whom are skilled laborers with personal problems of their own and the other who is a chocoholic ditz. Without a head of household, there is little rest or relaxation for anyone...except for maybe the cat...if the house sitters could only find the elusive little creature.
