Dixie Browning. Beckett’s Convenient Bride. New York: Silhouette Books, 2003.

Like the other men in his generation of the Beckett clan, Carson Beckett has been avoiding the altar.  His job as a police detective in Charleston, South Carolina has kept him busy–and banged up.  As he recovers from a particularly bad scrape, he begins to think that it’s time to marry his long-time girlfriend Margaret. But before he commits to wedding preparations, Carson decides he should make good on a promise to his late grandfather to clear up a debt owed by the Becketts to a family named Chandler. (A century earlier a Chandler had give a Beckett money to invest.  The investment was a good one, but no one could find Chandler to give him his profits.) Carson needs to find the last Chandler heir, Kit Dixon. Kit is a children’s book author and illustrator who makes a living as a waitress on the Outer Banks.  Unfortunately for both Kit and Carson, Kit came close to witnessing a murder.  When Carson comes around asking questions about Kit, she assumes that he is the murderer. Kit runs down Carson with her distinctive VW Beetle, then when it’s clear he’s not a killer, she takes him in while he heals.  You know where it goes from there.
