Another reluctant bride who marries for some reason other than love. Bad boy neighbor, Joel, is causing her grief, with wild parties and a smut-talking parrot. (I am not sure how the parrot figures into her distress.) Madeleine schemes to get rid of Joel, but ends up spending the night with him. Afraid of the scandal, Joel steps up and offers to marry her.
I was actually surprised that this pub date was as late as 1988. It feels older. I am not sure that avoiding potential scandal was enough of a marriage motivator after the 1970s. But maybe she really liked the parrot.
