Additional Info

Sara Hastings is an unmarried lawyer in her mid-thirties, much too busy to get involved in romance. Her Aunt Martha has decided to take matters into her own hands and find her a husband.

Unfortunately, Aunt Martha's method of doing it amounts to having the prospective groom bopped over the head and brought to Sara's apartment. Aunt Martha's choice is Brandon Cates, a young man who handles Aunt Martha's finances. Although Brandon is engaged to be married, this does not deter Aunt Martha.
After being bopped on the head a few times, having a temporary loss of memory and experienceing several instances of mouth-to-mouth resuscitation and a confrontation with the very angry fiance, Brandon slowly comes to realize that Sara is really the girl for him.
