Laurence is intrigued with Eva a 70-year-old CEO who is seeking sex, love and marriage on her terms. The old retired Boeing engineer is overwhelmed by all this after so many years as a widower living his quiet life and working part time in the art gallery. She has so many things he does not, including money and four grown children with families of their own.

Amy and Kevin are on vacation in the Basque country eating foie gras, shrimp and salt cod in the pintxo bars while sipping the region's popular wines. The scenery, art and the atmosphere in the Basque country make them feel effervescent. The Cooking Class they take in San Sebastián inspires all sorts of feelings, desires and plans for pintxos parties.

Drew is risking his reputation on staging a Basque art exhibition to get new business into his art gallery. It's probably a brilliant idea but the work of sourcing the art is challenging and nerve wracking. He's approached by a mysterious Parisian woman who appears to be the help he needs, but does he trust her?
