Following the collapse of her interior design business, Kate Winston moves to Georgetown with hopes of making it as a sales rep for Tasmania, a company selling personal-protection devices for women. With rapes, robberies, and domestic violence on the rise, the nation's capital is a ripe market. But Kate's stun-gun party implodes when her guests demand she sweeten the deal by providing autographed copies of In Heat, the latest best-selling novel by Stu Summers. With creditors breathing down her neck, Kate drives to Page Me Bookstore, where adoring fans clamor for a picture with the New York Times sexy and single romance writer.
Stu expects the flirty smiles and women fawning praise, but when his editor phones to inform Stu that his latest manuscript failed to impress the publishing board, his carefully crafted career begins to unravel. Stu has one week to deliver a complete rewrite that meets his fans' demanding standards. And he would if only he could write. But he can't. Not a lick.
For years Stu has paid a church secretary to ghostwrite his novels. Only now Hattie May Hall feels God calling her to write paranormal prairie Amish thrillers with an evangelical, Western twist. With Stu's career on the line and Kate's big sale in jeopardy, an unlikely pair of hearts collide, providing a shocking climax at the world's biggest stun gun ball.

Light, funny, pageturner
Any of Stu's interactions with his 'Holy Ghostwriter', especially when she comes to Beaufort to talk some sense into him!
She was great with the dry humor and caustic comments. :)
Stu had some major strikes against him, but the author did a great job bringing him to the place where he finally got it right. And the things Kate goes through are so close to reality, but with such a funny spin. The question asked for a moment, but i think my favorite was the character arcs.
