The last thing she’s looking for is love, and certainly not with Luke, who’s as opposite from Brody as Fleetwood Mac is from Prince. Still, he’s a poet, and she’s been itching to know someone who’ll read her poetry. When their physical attraction can’t be denied, their relationship transforms into a “no promises, no demands” love affair.
It’s easy for Daisy to accept. After all, memories of her fiancé rule her heart, and according to Luke’s Elvis-loving, Harley-riding friend, Raleigh, Luke has a back door woman named Allison. But the more fun she has with Luke—hiking mountains, shooting fireworks, meeting a mysterious, prophetic woman in a red satin dress—the more frustrated she is with their uncertain future.
She calls it quits. Her year-long lease is up. Should she give up hope and return to her family in Nashville?
Then a near-fatal accident brings about the truth of Luke’s attraction to Allison, and Daisy must make the decision of her life.
Set in a time when Tina Turner rocks the radio and telephones are plugged into a wall, THE FIZGIG chronicles the adventures, the defeats, and the triumphs of Daisy and Luke, with doses of hilarity and quirky characters mixed within.

I’m Michael Grath. I’ll admit I was elected to Congress on my Republican family history. I was out to make a name for myself, until I met Jessie Clark, a spitfire Democrat.
She’d be my nemesis, if I could just stop thinking about her. We’ve got nothing and everything in common, but our past divides us. She made one choice; I made another, and we can’t reconcile the two because it’s an issue that divides America as well.
So like I said, we weren’t supposed to be friends, we weren’t even supposed to like each other, and we certainly weren’t supposed to fall in love.
