Kate Cormick is at a crossroads. She's ended both her long-term relationship and her long-term career and is trying to rebuild her life among the hills of Austin, Texas. Kate feels like her new co-workers are a pack of zany animals who all receive primate-themed nicknames, and it's not just because her team is managing the opening of the new Capitol of Texas Zoo. When consultant Jack Cooper joins the team, Kate knows a good word from him to her boss will solidify the career path she's now on. But the word she doesn't count on is love.
When the up-and-comer that Kate has dubbed the "Queen Chimp" tells the entire office a secret, Kate's new career path is at risk. Will Kate put her life back in a cage or find the faith in herself to take a stand and create the future she's dreamed of?
