To the same resort comes Red Reddy, a hope-to-be novelist with plans also of furthering a former brief acquaintance with Linda; Charles Baker, Linda's fiancée; a snooping private detective; and Space O'Shea, who hopes to get a story on Bridget and her divorce-seeking parents. The resort is also host to a convention-meeting of a group of bird lovers headed by the prissy Gibney. The mix gives rise to more than a few situations. Written by Les Adams See less
