|Plot Summary of Trust Me|
Desdemona is a caterer for a wedding reception, but the bride decided to leave the groom at the alter. She is the owner of the catering business and needs to make sure the groom, Sam, pays for the food. He is a computer programmer, who is mostly into designing security systems. He tells Desdemona that for the most part he was marrying to have someone to have someone to do his public relations. He tells her that she did an excellent job at making the guests to leave, so he asks her if she would be intersted in making another contract with him to be the caterer for the many meetings that his ex fiance set up for him but that she would have to mingle with the guests and be his escort.
The plot thickens when someone breaks into his upstairs office, where Sam is designing a new security system that can't be corrupted. Sam is suspicious of Desdemona's step brother, a drifter/actor that can't find his niche. Desdemona's step father's family are all actors and when they are all between jobs she hires them to help her doing catering. Sam and Desdemona fall for each other, he gives her a Palm pilot for her birthday, which lands up saving her when she gets locked in the freezer of her business with a corpse, an ice sculptor that was a computer hacker. Sam thinks that he was killed by Desdemona's step brother, because an email had been sent to and from Desdemona's desk computer. Who else would have access to that computer?
