1980s Romantic Comedy

You know how sometimes, your high school crush grows up to become an insanely famous movie star?
Okay, probably not. But I do.

Although, I guess I’m getting ahead of myself.

Trip wasn’t always the gorgeous Hollywood A-lister you see these days on the big screen. Back in 1990 he was just the “new kid” who sat behind me in my fifth period English class.

He was always gorgeous, however.

I mean, he was That Guy. You know the one. That guy who could raise your blood pressure just by passing you in the hall. That guy who could melt you with a single look aimed in your general direction.

Women Sleuths

I’m Holly Parker, and on my fiftieth birthday I decided that it was about time I stopped adding things to my bucket list and started trying to cross a few items off instead. Visiting all fifty states was at the top of the list. I just had to find a cheap flight to somewhere interesting.

A low-cost, direct flight to Las Vegas was exactly what I needed. I didn’t waste my time overthinking it. I just booked the flight and packed my bags. After chatting with the couple in the seats next to mine on the flight, I was happy to arrive in Vegas and just go straight to bed.

My body clock, not yet reset to Vegas time, had me awake and eager to explore very early the next morning. I’d barely finished my breakfast, though, before I stumbled over a dead body. What are the odds that the victim would turn out to be the man I’d sat next to on my flight? Why is his former fiancée suddenly trying to be my best friend? And how do I convince the local police that I had nothing to do with his murder?
