DESIGNS ON THE DOCTOR
Summoned to Chicago by an urgent call from Dr. Jake Fox, interior designer Ally Rogers is then accused of neglecting her elderly mother, Estelle. What Jake doesn't know is how difficult Ally's relationship with Estelle has always been. His apology leads to a truce, and soon the two are involved. Jake arranges an interview with Taka Hotels, so Ally can continue working, care for Estelle and be with him. But Ally resents his interference -- at least at first. Victoria Pade continues Back in Business with Designs on the Doctor (3). Plot and conflict are handled well, as is the Ally-Estelle dynamic, but the romance is strictly by the numbers.
