For Andy Altman it was love at first sight. Halloween, 1983: She was Princess Leia; he was Chewbacca. Determined to be more than star-crossed lovers, Andy vowed to do whatever it took to make Paige Day his bride, even if that meant dragging himself back to the small town of Crockett, California, and working for her father, Gregory, the local pharmacist and most demanding boss east of San Francisco.

Day’s Pharmacy is tight quarters, and for Andy and Gregory, the mixture is explosive. Unable to win Gregory over, Andy devises a surefire scheme to secure his blessing to marry Paige. But what Andy doesn’t realize is that the only way he’ll make it to the altar is if he protects his future father-in-law’s big secret. In so doing, he’ll have to fend off financial ruin, Paige’s aggressive ex-boyfriend, and an intimidating crime ring of geriatric gangsters. For young Andy, charting the path to true love will take sheer ingenuity.
