KIRKUS REVIEW

From the over-tense world of public relations in New York City to an isolated old house in Florida come Paul Higgins and his family and there he learns the joys of privacy and quiet -- but not always peace -- and has real happiness when, returning to writing, his stories sell. And when best-selling author Cliff Tipton decides he also would like part of this dream world, Higgins, with his old friend Art Rhode, recognizes the threat and heads up a hard unsell campaign to keep his paradise unwanted. The intricate plan backfires when the area becomes too well known, the real estate men start working and a ""wild life wonderland"" moves in -- and Higgins moves again. This winds up in wild farce -- and those who like escape in madcap terms will find it here.
