Rose is likable all the way, and Warren improves on closer acquaintance. Locating her missing mother is important to teacher Julia Chance -- and it appears that Mom is with hotelier Nick Rampling's father. So Julia joins forces with Nick -- who's as arrogant as he is attractive -- reluctantly. When their cross-country search becomes a Honeymoon Hunt (2), Nick's furious. To him, all women are golddiggers, and even Julia's steadfast refusal to rely on his generosity doesn't lead him to see the error of his beliefs -- at least at first. Judy Christenberry's latest suffers from a rickety, oft-used premise. Getting past Nick's attitude and Julia's prissiness aren't easy, either. However, "road-trip" romance fans will likely enjoy this one.
