SummariesSummary from a distributor, Agent With Style:
Summary from an ebay seller in 2007:Small town science teacher Blair Sandburg finds himself caught up in a world unlike he's ever known when he inherits a huge fortune from his uncle and must travel to Cascade to manage his new empire. Unbeknownst to him, reporter Jim Ellison is determined to meet him and get the behind-the-scenes scoop on him. Having read Blair's thesis, he pretends to be Jim Elliott, a Sentinel in need of a Guide, and Blair is happy to help. While Blair and Jim become close as Jim realizes he really is a Sentinel, the reporter in him, publishing under J.E. Ellison, continues to write nasty article after article on the newly-rich country mouse in the big city. By the time Jim realizes he's in love with Blair, he's made Blair out to be an imbecile in the paper -- but he's determined to tell Blair the truth. Will this destroy their fragile, newly-formed relationship? And how can Jim prove in a court of law that Blair isn't incompetent and a danger to himself, when his own printed words are what unscrupulous lawyer Lee Brackett plans to use to commit Blair to an insane asylum and gain control of his fortune?
... loosely based on the movie Mr Deeds Goes to Town. Blair Sandburg, who never received his doctorate from Ranier U, has been teaching High School science in the backwater of Clancy Falls. Then his rich uncle dies in Cascade & leaves him $20 million. He returns to Cascade where he finds himself the object of ridicule, and, eventually a competency hearing. But he also finds his Sentinel, a retired cop now working at a prominent city newspaper.
