Alec and his boss Harry work for an unnamed agency that tracks down white collar criminals. Alec's Aunt Victoria invites him to a literary conference. Alec somehow determines that the land swindler they've been tracking down, Bond will show up at. Meanwhile, Dennie's a journalist who feels like she's not taking enough risks. She deduces that a famous author (Janice) whose husband is cheating on her will be at that same literary conference so Dennie heads their to stalk, er, get an interview. Oh, and by the way Janice is close friends with Victoria. ANd Janice calls the police almost immediately on Dennis.

Plus there's Donald who thinks Victoria should marry him and buy a compound together. And Bond's jealous girlfriend is prowling around too. And it just gets more complicated from there, and perhaps a little too coincidental. It's like an episode of the Loveboat, except on land.

Other reviewers thought there were too many characters to keep straight. I didn't find it confusing, however, with that many characters you just didn't get to know any of them that well.

Fun fluffy book that should provide readers a good introduction to Jennifer Crusie. It is not as good as many of her later books, but it's a short read - almost like a romance snack.
