I swear, some HaBOs are like missed encounters, where you idly pick up the book and see what it says, then realize hours later that you’d LOVE to read it – only to never see the book again. Jeanne has a story like that – and my apologies to her, as her original email was lost and then found.
A few years ago while standing at the checkout in a grocery store I picked up a romantic comedy that intrigued me but I didn’t have enough $$ on me at the time to afford. When I went back for it a bit later it was gone, & I’ve been driving myself crazy ever since trying to locate it.
Unfortunately, I haven’t a clue as to the title, author or publisher, all I have to go on is some of the description from the back cover. It involves some gal who finds herself in some unsavory predicament or another, & she meets up w/ some fellow who she is hoping will come to her rescue, & he has absolutely no intention or desire to do so, although one supposes that he eventually does. He is described as a “lazy, good for nothing” slob or bum or something, that’s the part of the back cover description that really amused & stuck w/ me. The “lazy, good for nothing” really stuck in my mind, but that’s it, that’s all I have to go on. I know this is like trying to find a proverbial needle in a haystack, but I REALLY want to find this damn thing & would be eternally & ever so grateful to any help you &/or your readers could supply.
OK, does anyone remember that cover copy? Or the book? This one is really, really hard, I know.
