"a light romantic comedy"

Love in the Fast Lane is an absolutely wonderful romance that just happens to have a former race-car-driver ghost named Coop. He's the driving force that gets Scott and Maggie together, and when necessary, keeps them together, but that doesn't detract from their relationship at all. In fact, some of the most hilarious stuff happens when they team up together to banish the ghost.

This story has all the elements I love in a light romantic comedy: witty dialogue, immediate and continuous sparks between the hero and heroine, believable conflict, and a great resolution. Scott and Maggie are multi-dimensional characters, each with a life of their own that rounds out their characters nicely. Wealth management exec Maggie has a current significant other (did I mention conflict??) and estranged girlfriends. Race car driver Scott has broken bones, a ghost who won't let him be, and a career that's spiralling downward.

Ms. McKnight threw in a little suspense, too. From visiting her website, I gather she likes to do that often in her romances. I think she handled that with a deft touch, adding to the conflict without detracting from the relationship.

My local bookstore won't have any copies of this never- dull, often laugh-out-loud funny romance. I'm buying them all up for those after-Christmas parties, those sorry-I- didn't-get-to-see-you-sooner gifts.

Scott Templeton lives for the adrenaline rush, but when the ghost of a legendary race car driver suddenly appears in the passenger seat next to him, it sends Scott literally into a tailspin. Now he can't convince the guy to head toward the light and stop haunting him, not until Scott promises to make a special delivery.

Maggie Cooper has a five-year plan that involves making executive VP with a corner office and a salary that will cause a grown man to weep. What it doesn't involve is a high-speed hotshot who claims her dead father sent him. She doesn't care how charming Scott is, or how he seems to devour her with his eyes, or even how her shotgun-toting grandmother is playing matchmaker. Maggie is determined to resist, but Scott is just as determined to convince her that loving him is worth the risk.
