THE BRIDE'S BEST MAN
After law school, Shelby Cook goes
on vacation in Hawaii with her Aunt Kay because the older woman wants to look up an old friend, Dan Jackson. Unaware that Dan is her long-lost father, Shelby finds herself paired with Pete Campbell, one of his employees, as Dan and Kay renew their acquaintance. It's awkward
at first, but their relationship warms as Pete and Shelby try to bring the older couple together, and Shelby comes to grips with her feelings about Dan. Judy Christenberry's latest, The Bride's Best Man (2), has a lovely setting and a sweet secondary romance, but Pete and Shelby seem wooden and uninteresting.
