"A good romance"
To add sexy spice into her life Corinne McCourt decides
to surprise her fiancÚ Tony Bergerson. However the
surprise is on Corrine as she catches Tony with some
bimbo. Outraged, Corrine takes her two-week vacation from
work immediately, steals Tony's Ferrari, and drives from
Denver to her cousin Sandie's apartment in Las Vegas.
Sandie welcomes Corrine, but informs her favorite
relative that she needs to go away. Her lover pulled a
bump and run with Sandie in his car on an old man's
Studebaker and she needs time to think. Corrine pretends
to be Sandie over the next few days. Vegas police
detective Leo Wolfman still recovers from a bullet he took
on a case that involved his now ex-wife. His first non-
desk assignment since the injury is the Studebaker case.
However, when he sees Corrine masquerading as Sandie, he
struggles with an attraction he does not want, but soon
love proves too powerful even for this romantic turned
cynic. Corrine shares his feelings, but wonders if he loves
her or her Sandie impersonation.
JOYRIDE is a humorous contemporary romance that
category readers will enjoy. Though the story line
requires acceptance of the quirks of the cast especially
why Sandie would potentially endanger her beloved cousin,
fans will enjoy their eccentricity. Colleen Collins has
written a fun book that deserves a sequel starring a
lovesick professional wrestler.
