Rosalie Madison works as a riveter at the Boeing plant in Seattle Washington.  On her way to work, she goes to Victory Square, to honor her fiance', Victor Michaels, who had been killed the year before, over Midway Island.  She is accidentally jostled by a reporter, and it knocks her into another person, which splashed his coke onto her work clothes.  Angry, mostly because she dislikes reporters, because her father was one, she lashes out at Kenny Davenport, bringing them both to the attention of Lana Turner, who is appearing on stage at the moment.  Miss Turner thinks they are sweethearts, having a little spat, and brings them both on stage to Rosalie's embarrassment. 

When she arrives at work, she is hassled by two male co-workers who say they have just managed to break the plant record for shooting rivets on one shift.  After a few minutes, Rosalie says that she and her pardner, Birdie, could outdo the men.  They do, which brings them to the attention of plant management, and another newspaper story, again, with Kenny Davenport as the reporter. and soon their attraction is apparent.

Will their romance blossom, or will the fact that Kenny is a reporter, and Rosie doesn't trust reporters, because her father abandoned her and her mother, chasing stories cause her to not follow her heart?

A very well written book, and it is seamless, you cannot tell a difference in the writing styles of the 2 authors.
