There's a whole lot of trouble going on in Beaumont, South Carolina. According to resident psychic-slash-astrologer Destiny Moultrie, Mercury's in retrograde, Venus is in the seventh house, and the combination has turned Cupid wacko! Chaos rules as tempers flare and lust runs rampant.
Newlyweds Max Holt and Jamie Swift-Holt are trying to make a baby, but their recently purchased antebellum mansion is under renovation and filled with feuding contractors. Vera has a crush on her new mailman, and is bent on looking 10 years younger. Destiny is marked for marriage by the changing planets, and she's running for her life as the local redneck and bait-shop owner is determined to make her his.
Meanwhile, local pediatrician Maggie Davenport has considerably bigger problems now that her wild-girl past has caught up in the form of an ex-boyfriend and jailbird who just flew the coop - and is determined to track her and her daughter down. If he doesn't expose her secrets, there's a good chance Jamie's editor, intent on getting the Full Scoop, will.
Fortunately, FBI agent Zack Madden is on hand for protection; but the new danger is the wild attraction he and Maggie share. Fleas the hound dog is experiencing his first crush on Maggie's adorable and alluring...um...pygmy goat? Add to that an Elvis convention and a local root doctor and hoodoo practitioner who decides it's time she take charge, only to have one of her spells backfire, and you've got a gut-busting, laugh-out-loud story we hope you won't forget!
It's just another wild ride in the town we love to write about, and the characters we can't get enough of. So kick off your shoes, sit back, and enjoy a full scoop of fun, adventure, and romance.
