    This was a great story by a local writer from Bowling Green, Ohio. It's an intriguing story with a little bit of mystery added. I really enjoyed the story, although it really had nothing to do with "Hollywood" or the movies. Since it IS a romance I think some of the parts were kind of hokey (in a good way) and the character would say this could only happen in the movies.
