This is a cute story with an admirable heroine. However, it slows down too much in the middle.

Rose DeAngelo is on the run. She is escaping a Monday from hell, and a boss who wants to know why her clients' cargo shipments are being hijacked.

Mike Ramsey, Transportation Investigator, wants answers to the same questions. Mike sets himself up as the next target for the hijackers. It is just luck that puts the prime suspect, Rose, in his rig for the cross country trip.

It seemed like such a good plan, but then who plans for love?
