In Dallas life was normal, thinks stockbroker Jay Jarvis. But he's just been transferred to Greenville, South Carolina, and simultaneously dumped by his Texas girlfriend. Where does a guy go to meet girls in the Southern suburbs?The same place she finds clients, his realtor drawls: "Everyone here goes to church."So does Jay. And on his first visit, he gets sucked into the singles group-and the proverbial Weekend Beach Retreat, where against a backdrop of white sand and blue sea he meets: * lead-footed Darcy and her lime-green convertible * Nancy and the Numericals, who move en masse, dating books in tow * a brown-eyed missionary who catches his attention with a well-slung grape and provocative poem* Bible-thumping Stanley, who just wants a girl to help him with his suntan lotion* surfer-dude Ransom, the single men's group leader with high expectations-and a wife* a Perrier-swigging church janitor who loves to tell stories and play mid-week pranks on the pastor * and a crazy concoction of off-beat others!Life for Jay is never normal again as his perceptions of church, God, and what it means to follow him are turned upside down-an effect leaving this single stockbroker, and those around him, thoroughly Flabbergasted.
