When Mike, the great guy that Lily meets at her company’s St. Patrick’s Day party takes her home he discovers she lives on the third floor of The Zoo, a well known apartment building that caters to tenants who have exotic pets. Unfortunately, one of the pets, a large snake, is missing. There’s a sign on the front door of Lily’s apartment building:

Please Don’t Let Out the Snake!

While Lily is trying to figure out why Boogie, a big boa constrictor, heads straight for her apartment whenever he gets loose, Mike has his own problems. He’s a jewelry designer who is in danger of defaulting on a huge contract because all his workers live in his hometown that’s on a flood plain and the river is rising. When it finally floods, all his crew and their families disappear without a trace. Suddenly, Mike isn’t worried about his business anymore. He’s worried about his workers and their families. Are they okay? Where could they be?

Tensions rise when Reggae and Lily begin to fear that Boogie is stalking Boots, Reggae’s beloved pet iguana. After a snake hunt, Mike, who loves cherry pie, leans against Lily’s kitchen counter eating her last piece of pie. “Kiss me,” Mike says, “I have cherry pie on my lips!” and she does…

Filled with lively characters including: a Jamaican landlady, Reggae, whose traditional headdress holds her iPhone and assorted office supplies; her Jamaican boyfriend, Mingo, who thinks he doesn’t fit in; and Velma, a tenant who collects snakes—big ones.
