ex-navy officer [he quit the service in

Jonathan & Jennifer Hart
Jonathan and Jennifer first met by chance at the
Hotel Ritz in London while Jennifer tried to get
an interview with Jonathan. They went kite
flying on their first date and then Jonathan
proposed by unveiling a banner ("Would you marry
me?") from the Tower Bridge in London. They soon
married and honeymooned in the Napa Valley.
Jonathan's gave Jennifer a gold bracelet on
their first Christmas together. Before Jennifer,
Jonathan dated the beautiful Nikki Stefunos.
In 1994, Jennifer inherited the coastal town of
Kingman's Ferry. Jennifer had done her early
training as a writer at their local newspaper.
When she visited her old workplace, she
rediscovered the etched letters J.E. and C.B. [a
former boyfriend] still carved into the desktop.
Later in the week, Jonathan offered Jennifer an
entire wooden-covered bridge as a sign of his
Legend had it that if two lovers kissed on the
bridge at sunrise then they would be destined to
be together forever. The bridge was falling
apart so Jonathan hired a local carpenter to
rebuild it for his Jennifer. This type of
romantic gesture helped keep the Hart's love
life vibrant and alive.
When not attending fancy parties and traveling
around the globe to exotic romantic vacation
spots, Jonathan and Jennifer enjoy being amateur
sleuths. [“Their hobby is murder”].
Hart’s share their home with Max, Jonathan’s
gravelly-voiced, cigar-smoking old friend who
acts as the family’s live-in housekeeper and
chauffeur; and Freeway, their scruffy little dog
[an unclipped Löwchen breed they found lost on
the freeway]. "Get off the couch!" was a common
remark yelled by Max who cared for Freeway most
of the time.
The Hart’s drive around town in a
number of expensive cars including a rare 1956
Bentley Convertible; a yellow 1979 Mercedes Benz
450 SL with a chocolate interior; a yellow 1983
Mercedes Benz 380 SL Convertible with black
interior; a silver Aston Martin Volante
Convertible with black top and interior; and the
family’s 1979 Mercedes Benz 300 TD Wagon which
Jonathan with his faithful friend, Max
Years before Jonathan was a wealthy man, he was
a orphan and in trouble with the law. Max
rescued Jonathan from a troubled life after high
school and arranged to send Jonathan to college.
He even gave him a black 1950 Ford convertible
to drive to his new school. When Jonathan proved
his abilities as a shrewd businessman, Max moved
in with Jonathan as his housekeeper. But never
forget that Max is more that just a chauffeur
and housekeeper - he is an integral part of the
family. When Jonathan married Jennifer, Max was
the best man. He calls Jennifer "Mrs. H."
Today, Jonathan Hart is the President of Hart
