Publisher Description

Dina Maitland spends almost as much time extricating her movie-star mother from personal messes as she invests in her forensic accounting job—so much time, she may no longer have a job once she cleans up her mother's latest fiasco, her engagement to a twenty-something film student. Vowing it's the last time she puts herself on cleanup duty, Dina sets off for South Carolina to stop the pending nuptials and, along the way, almost literally runs into the father of the groom.

Ben Cutler has troubles of his own, with his business under attack from shady competitors and a government audit looming. Not one to trust women after a painful divorce, he finds an equally reluctant ally in Dina as they aim to stop the wedding.

They have another problem: As they drive each other to distraction, an inconvenient attraction blossoms between them. Can they face their pasts and overcome a series of comic disasters, putting aside their budding passion to complete their mission, or will they give in to the most alarming catastrophe of all—love?

This is a contemporary romantic comedy set on an island off the coast of South Carolina.

Barbara Barrett is a Midwestern woman who prefers her winters without snow or ice. Since her retirement, she spends her winters in Florida and returns to Iowa for her summers (which can get just as hot and humid as Florida at times). After graduating from college with a B.A. and M.A. degree in History, she spent several years as a human resources management analyst for the State of Iowa studying jobs and working with employees. She is married to the man she met in floor counselor training at the University of Iowa. They have two grown children and eight grandchildren. When not planted in front of her laptop, she is playing mah jongg, having lunch with friends or watching cooking or interior decoration shows on TV.
