It Happened One Night by Jennifer AlLee
RELEASING THIS WEEK!
1939ish Rita Fisk runs the Durlin Hotel (today is known at the Oatman Hotel). Her predictable existence is interrupted one night when Clark Gable and Carole Lombard, newly married in Kingman, drop into the hotel to spend their honeymoon. Edgar, Mr. Gable’s driver and right-hand man, insists their stay be kept hush-hush. Of course, Oatie the ghost picks that night to cause mischief. Then, a reporter shows up, claiming he’s been trailing the famous couple and knows they’re in there somewhere. As Edgar and Rita fight their way through a comedy of errors, even pretending to be a honeymooning couple to throw off the reporter, they grow closer. By the time the night’s over, hopes are shared and promises are made. But is Rita the kind of woman to believe in promises, and is Edgar the kind of man to keep them?
Movies are king in 1956, and Gallup, New Mexico, on Route 66, is paradise for producing Hollywood B-movies. Veronica Scott wants nothing more than to be an actress, but her polio-afflicted leg has kept her off the casting rolls. Cooper Dean’s only interest in the movie industry revolves around finding justice for his wife’s death. When Cooper and Veronica are cast as secondary characters, much to their surprise, each sees an opportunity to help the other. But their cooperation will put Veronica in danger, and she’ll have to play the role of a lifetime to save them both.
