Mona Lisa Smiles

Mona Lisa Smiles

With Papa dead and Mama in assisted living, Mona Lisa Buttaro plans to sell the family home and restaurant, but her quirky brother, Joey, is a roadblock. Joey works at the family restaurant, and if she sells Booty’s where else could Joey work?

Mona Lisa hires former classmate Cliff McFarlane to do repairs on the family home. Newly sober, Cliff was in the popular crowd that excluded her in the past, but she is still attracted to him — not that she’d let him know. Mona Lisa wonders if she should give up on all men — unless she could find one like Papa, whom she idolized. Then she makes an outrageous discovery.
