Kate Underwood Fisher has a guardian angel.
All the Underwoods in her mother's line have them, which is good. Otherwise, the truck that almost ran her down this morning in the parking lot of Cable News Flashes in Dallas would've taken her out. She sprained her ankle, and Whit Bradley reached down to pick her up.
Kate co-produces "Pundit's Policies," a political talk and call-in cable show. Whit Bradley works for USA Homeland Security. He's at CNF because signals are somehow being sent to a terrorist group via the "Pundit's Corner" opinion segments. He must crack the code fast; if his cover is blown, the opportunity will be lost, and the group will start using other signals. But what are the signals?
Whit suspects Kate is the group's tool, as she edits all Pundit's Corner text. His cover story: he's a consultant doing efficiency analysis. But everyone jumps to the conclusion that he's there to justify downsizing them. Kate discovers the truth when she stumbles on the secret to the code, and she becomes Whit's ally.
Then the villain catches on. A klieg light nearly falls on their heads during a taping; a crew member is found dead; text is inexplicably changed right before airtime. Kate starts getting calls on her old (inactive) cellphone from her guardian angel, telling her that the villain will soon eliminate them and make his major move. Can they stay alive and get the help they need to unmask him and stop the terrorist group?
So, why doesn't the guardian angel just make the bad guy drop dead of a coronary at Shoneys?
When you use a trope like guardian angel, you have to be consistent. It's clear Angel can help her physically--you told us about the truck. Why wouldn't he do it now?
The problem is you've got too much going on here. Terroism, romance and angels is one too many things.
