Here is one fever you will want to catch, romcom fans!
Gwen (Andrea Roth) is an assistant editor for a publishing company in a beautiful Southern city. As she stands on the steps of a church, watching still another former classmate tie the knot, she is wistful. Now, there are only three unattached ladies from her graduating class, including herself and her best friend, a florist. Why has the search for her perfect man seen so many road hazards? However, her mind quickly turns to work, for a famous romance author, Dahlia Marchand (Delta Burke) has picked Gwen to edit her soon-to-be-sensational memoirs, as the writer has been married SIX times. Little does Gwen realize that Dahlia wants someone less experienced so that she can, perhaps, get away with a curtailed version of her true story. Ms. Marchand may also prove useful to Gwen in the romance arena, for she introduces her editor to a handsome, successful lawyer, Mark. Mark does seem as interested in solidifying a "white picket fence" future as Gwen does. But, could a chance encounter with an equally attractive bookstore manager, Jake, succeed in confusing her heart? Likewise, Gwen is no dummy and realizes Dahlia is trying to "re-write" her own biography by not revealing the truth about her humble beginnings. Can Gwen convince Dahlia to tell the whole story without incurring the author's wrath? This is a sweet film, with a beautiful setting and fine acting. Burke, looking slim and lovely, is quite wonderful as the famous author while Roth, a stunning blonde, is also very nice as the lovelorn editor. None of the other cast members are well known but are more than adequate as well. The town in which the film was shot is gorgeous, a definite treat for the eyes, and the costumes, too, are very well-chosen. As for the direction, it moves the story along nicely while the script has some catchy lines. In summary, you will want to "catch" this fever, all you romantic comedy fans. Unlike true fevers, this one is guaranteed to make you feel great.
