Sophie owns a chocolate shop where she sells Misfortune Cookies-dipped in bitter chocolate they contain messages she handwrites each day such as “Your car seems fine now, but just wait…it will eventually be a source of frustration and unexpected delay.”
What starts as a gimmick, turns into a surprise hit with customers. But when her ex-fiancée moves back to their small Washington town, he is surprised at how bitter and unhappy Sophie has become.
He proposes a bet–she must place an ad in the paper that simply states “Wanted: Happiness.” If at least 100 people respond, proving happiness isn’t a myth, she agrees to a date with him. If not, he’ll leave her alone forever. Sophie is convinced she’ll win, but fate has other ideas when a reporter at the paper is intrigued by the ad as a story and posts it in newspapers across the country.
