Shipwreck Pants No. 2: Ghosts of California Beach: Second Story in a Series set in the Sunny City of San Diego (Shipwreck Pants (Sunny City Stories, San Diego))
As the second story in our series opens, Robin Caruso (28) and her fiance Tom Melchior (28) are about to sign the lease to launch Robin's exciting sea-side clothing store to be called Shipwreck Pants. They name it so because of a current global fashion for young women to wear ripped, shredded, and usually pre-faded jeans.
In Story #2, we continue what might be called a suspenseful sitcom by the sea, set in awesome San Diego. The Sunny City has one of the world's finest climates, a true Mediterranean climate such as not even some cities in the actual Med enjoy. Thirty-three million tourists and convention goers a year must know something. There are lovely beaches, gently waving palm trees, balmy winds, warm sun, sweet breezes smelling of sea and jasmine and eucalyptus and other fragrances... plus world-class universities, a thriving tech and bio hub, and of course several million hard-working, hard-playing locals who wouldn't live anywhere else. The city, California's second largest and the eighth-largest in the US, also has elegant shopping centers, wonderful restaurants, museums, art galleries, a world-class zoo, and much more.
Robin and Tom are all but engaged to be married, very much in love, and best friends as well. Around them is a growing circle of mostly young (or youthful) friends like Brian Chen, owner of the Palm Sundae Cafe next door to Robin's shop, and other entrepreneurs in the California Beach strip mall along Ocean Run. Reminder, dear reader: it's fiction, so don't look for these fun places on your next trip to the sunny city.
Tom is with Robin every moment during the stressful process of signing the lease papers with a large corporation that wants to do everything possible to evict its shopkeeper tenants so it can build condos. That will always be a background struggle, aside from ordering and marketing top-brand designer clothes from the best in London, Milan, Paris, and New York to name just a few fashion hubs. Tom, meanwhile, has launched his own chauffeur business. He owns exactly one van, and hopes to expand it to a fleet one day. We'll stick with him and with Robin, story by story, to see how it all turns out. And we'll meet their wonderful, fun friends (and a few individuals along the way who add suspense and scary moments, to spice up our journey and keep it interesting).
Oh, and let's not forget: Robin is warned about the ghost(s) hovering around the California Beach strip mall. One night - not stormy, but very dark - Tom and Robin are sitting in their new apartment near the strip mall when they hear a crash. Flashlight in hand, they cautiously go outside, one tremulous step at a time, to investigate... read the story to find out what happens next. And come by again for more stories as John T. Cullen, San Diego author of more than 40 books and many short stories, writes them for our enjoyment.

In a previous life, before the time of Plum, I wrote twelve short romance novels. Red-hot screwball comedies, each and every one of them. Nine of these stories were originally published by the Loveswept line between the years 1988 and 1992. All immediately went out of print and could be found only at used bookstores and yard sales.
I'm excited to tell you that those nine stories are now being re-released by HarperCollins. Naughty Neighbor is the eighth in the lineup, and it's presented here in almost original form. Usually when I edit these books I do some modernizing. For instance, I change VHS to DVD, and roller skates to Rollerblades, and sticks of gum are now pieces of gum. I do this because the books were meant to be contemporary (as opposed to historical), and I don't want the reader to have a time disconnect. In the beginning of the original Naughty Neighbor, my heroine throws a handheld phone into the toilet, and the next morning she goes into the bathroom and sees the "slim silver antenna caught between the toilet lid and seat." Okay, so most phones don't have extended antennas anymore, but I just loved the image . . . so I left it in. And I don't know how many women wear front-closure bras anymore, but that got left in, too.
Naughty Neighbor is probably the most romancey of all the Loveswepts I wrote, but there's still a small mystery to unravel. Louisa Brannigan is a no-nonsense, hardworking press secretary, fighting her way to the top of Capitol Hill, with no help from her annoying neighbor, Pete Streeter. He receives phone calls all night long, he steals her morning paper, he thinks jeans are formal wear, and worst of all he's involved Louisa in the disappearance of a pig. So this is the story of a pig in Witness Protection and love being found by a workaholic woman and a fun-loving man who makes terrible pots of coffee.
