Meet the Author

Penny McCall was born and raised in southeastern Michigan, the seventh of nine children, whose claim to fame was reading five books a week in grade school. Needless to say, her obsession with the written word only grew from there ' despite a short, and misguided, foray into the world of computer science (the "sensible" job path).

With the help and support of one of her sisters, she began to write 'and write and write and write' and finally sold her first novel in 1997 (as Penny McCusker.) Four more followed, until that line closed down in 2001, and after a little hiatus ' and yet another change of direction ' she began to write humor, if only to satisfy her inner smart aleck. Berkley bought her first story about a sarcastic FBI agent and a librarian with a photographic memory (All Jacked Up), and she's been happily writing for them ever since.

This is one of the most disappointing books I've read in a long time. No chemistry between the characters, the "romance" is completely forced, and really no tension to make you want to get to the end. I had a really hard time finishing it and that never happens.

Great dialogue, comedy and suspense, easy read, keeps you interested in the story going on around their relationship. If you haven't read her other books...grab them soon.

Behavioral psychologist Norah MacArthur has released a new book on relationships, but she fears any sales will happen because of either the notoriety of her estranged relationship with her dad or the curiosity factor. Over fifteen years ago, her father a con artist was caught and convicted for his role in a robbery. Although the loot was not recovered, Lucius served his sentence and he is being freed from prison. FBI agent Trip Jones plans to keep Norah safe as he expects her to be a magnet for trouble when her dad's associates pressure him to provide the goods. He also hopes to recover the stolen property while musing about her relationship babble which is to him voodoo pabulum. However, he never expected to be attracted to the shrink nor for her to want him. Readers will believe Penny McCall's latest FBI romantic suspense (see The Bliss Factor and All Jacked Up) is Worth the Trip as the search for the loot makes for an exciting entertaining and electrifying thriller. The action never stops from the moment dad is freed from prison and never slows down as Norah the shrink learns it is truly A Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World when stolen money and stolen hearts intersect.
