Besides the romance, Robyn Henderson has two girlfriends, besties for effsies—until the two of them find stellar men. Suddenly, they don’t have much time for her anymore since they’re busy getting cozy with their significant others. Their idea of having Robyn tag along is to find a blind date so she won’t be a fifth wheel. Robyn doesn’t care for that idea and neither did I.

Matters are complicated because Robyn does start dating. But it’s the brother of her friend Kim, who is also her employer. He’s estranged from his family and poor Robyn is caught in the middle. Her attempts to get them to put aside their differences and just talk come to nothing; neither one is willing to budge or effect a reconciliation. There’s a mystery involving a hidden treasure and sabotage on the Belleza Resort where Robyn works. However, I couldn’t bring myself to care very much.

It’s a mess, all right, and an interesting difference in this otherwise standard romance. Sean is as determined to get Robyn as he is to avoid his sister and gets impatient at Robyn’s attempts to keep her job, accusing her of being a workaholic who only cares about business. I didn’t see it that way and Sean’s lack of consideration really grated on my nerves after a while.

The requisite happy ending is marred by Robyn’s final decision about love and business. She becomes yet another woman who can only make it in the world by hitching her wagon to her husband’s stars. Congratulations.
