Adapting to her new job as Administrative Assistant to the Finance Director of a large Connecticut insurance firm should be relatively difficult. However, the key adjective is relatively as that word has a double meaning to Casie Malcavey. The job is nothing when compared to dealing with her mother, acting bongos because Casie's sister Joyce is pregnant.

Mom asks Casie to do a small favor, which usually means big, and issues an order. She wants Casie to drive Joyce, whose husband is away, to The Happy Stork to buy maternity bras. At the store junior high school football coach Scott Karsetter fills in for his mother and finds he likes what he sees and hears from Casie. He plans to follow up though she left no phone number because he wants to date Casie.

The lead couple is a delightful pair whose romance seems sort of like a throwback to less complicated novels. Though fun to read, the story line feels a bit soft not because of excess fat, but due a lack of any real major conflict. Still bras instead of quiche make for an amusing tale as Scott can size up any female.
