SHE is a director of dog food commercials who's just been recruited to finish a four-day movie shoot. But as soon as Lucy Armstrong arrives on set, she discovers that the staff is in chaos, the make-up artist is suicidal, and the stunt director just happens to be her ex-husband. That, and the temperamental lead actor has just acquired as an advisor a Green Beret who has the aggravating habit of always being right. HE thought that hiring on as a military consultant for a movie star was a to-die-for deal: easy work, easy money, easier starlets. But his first day on the job, Captain J.T.

This is a re-read and it stood the test of time.It has everything you might wish from a comic romantic suspense novel: a movie setting,...
I read this book a few years ago and thought it was pretty funny. I recently saw it on audio at the library and decided to listen. Its still a good story. I get a laugh out of the male point of view offered by Bob Mayer. I'm pretty sure he's responsible for the liberal sprinkling of 'clusterfuck'...
