Greer Hennessy is a struggling movie location scout. Her last location shoot ended in disaster when a film crew destroyed property on an avocado grove. And Greer ended up with the blame. Now Greer has been given one more chance -- a shot at finding the perfect undiscovered beach town for a big budget movie. She zeroes in on a sleepy Florida panhandle town. There's one motel, a marina, a long stretch of pristine beach and an old fishing pier with a community casino, which will be perfect for the film's climax when the bad guys blow it up in an all-out assault on the townspeople. Greer slips into town and is ecstatic to find the last unspoilt patch of the Florida gulf coast. She takes a room at the only motel in town, and starts working her charm. However, she finds a formidable obstacle in the town mayor, Eben Thinadeaux. Eben is a born-again environmentalist who's seen huge damage done to the town by a huge paper company. The bay has only recently been re-born, a fishing industry has sprung up, and Eben has no intention of letting anybody screw with his town again. The only problem is that he finds Greer way too attractive for his own good, and knows that her motivation is in direct conflict with his. Will true love find a foothold in this small beach town before it's too late and disaster strikes?

I loved this novel; it tells the story of a location manager filming a movie at a small community in Florida. Simultaneously, as life sometimes imitates art, our neighbours across our very quiet street rented their house to a movie crew producing (in their words) a low budget network TV movie (Precious Things). So while I am reading about the movie making business, they are filming one in my front yard. There is one scene where a very unhappy neighbour makes his feelings known and I burst out laughing because I knew exactly how he felt. I should have done what he did and I won't spoil it by revealing it here.

ho hum. Pulp fiction. I agree -- a good one for the beach. Keeps you amused but nothing to take away.

It was a bit predictable and the end was a bit rushed. Otherwise it was a fun relaxing book. A good one for the beach.

The set-up for this book seemed to have the potential for some really funny scenes, but the one-dimensional characters and predictable plotting were a big disappointment. I don't know why I even finished this book!

Great novel about making a movie in a small beach town in Florida. Unusual characters and plot development.

She always has a winner. The story line is about women who find themselves even while tackling the stresses of life. A great read!!!!!
