Every woman wanted to be her; every man wanted to bed her. But over a year ago Devon Stafford vanished without a trace. As a biographer, Jake Gannon had taught himself to follow the clues of a person's life story like a detective. As an ex-Marine, he was accustomed to being firmly in control. But when his car died in a little town called Mare's Nest on the Carolina coast, he had to admit he'd come to a dead end. There he met a.38-toting tow-truck driver named Dixie La Fontaine. She was no celebrity, but Dixie had an irresistible sex appeal all her own. What did this down-to-earth woman know about a missing movie star? Surprisingly, quite a lot. And Jake was going to uncover it all...if Dixie didn't end up shooting him first. About the Author Tami Hoag's novels have appeared regularly on national bestseller lists since the publication of her first book in 1988. She lives in Los Angeles.

This is a story about a megastar that disappears at the apex of her fame and fortune. Jake Gannon, an honest biographer (I didn?t know there were any of them left), is on her trail; hoping to tell the real story of why Devon Stafford left Hollywood.
Gannon?s pride-and-joy (his Porsche) breaks down and he realizes he is in the middle of nowhere. As a mechanically-challenged ex-Marine, Gannon calls for a tow truck. Dixie La Fontaine, tow truck driver extraordinaire, brings Jake and his baby Porsche back to Mare?s Nest for repairs.
Neatness-freak Jake recognizes that he is very interested in the neatness-challenged Dixie; Dixie is also interested in the uptight Gannon. Each denies the attraction because the other doesn?t meet their requirements for a suitable companion.
The secondary characters were written with the same care as were the main characters. The action moved at a good pace; this is a fairly short book. The author used quite a bit of wit to show the characters in action.
The beginning of this story yelled ?keeper;? however, it became predictable and syrupy at the end.
