In this book, Nancy devises a plan to get her newly single, teenage guitar teacher Andy and her babysitter Annie to fall in love. Nancy and her best friend Bree leave notes and little gifts from a secret admirer for Annie in a scheme the girls derived to make the teens fall in eternal love. Nancy's plan gets Annie and Andy together for a meeting on Valentine's Day, but they do not fall in eternal love as the girls had hoped. The girls' scheme is found out, but Nancy and Bree are not giving up because Nancy's mother tells the girls that she and Nancy's dad just started out as just buddies, like Annie and Andy, before falling in love.
