Overview

Shaken by Pamela Beason

ELISA'S IN TROUBLE...
Elisa Langston is the obvious choice to take over the Langston Green plant nursery after her father's sudden death. Her beautiful blond stepsister Charlie and stepmother Gail manage the family's flower shops, while Elisa feels more at home driving a backhoe.

But after Elisa takes charge, Langston Green is hit by a wave of disasters: vandalism, arson, an earthquake. Money is stolen and the main building is burned to the ground. As the business hurtles towards failure, Elisa feels more desperate with each passing day. Can things get any worse?

NOW JAKE'S OUT TO NAIL HER...
Jake Street remembers fiery Elisa from high school, where he secretly lusted after her. He's glad she doesn't recall the little geek he was then. Now he's a muscular ex-detective turned insurance investigator, determined to do a good job on this last case before he enters the FBI. Repeated damage claims from Langston Green point toward insurance fraud, and the evidence is quickly stacking up against Elisa.

Elisa's exotic Latina charms may still be alluring, but if she's a criminal, she certainly won't get any special treatment; Jake will make sure she ends up in handcuffs.

Exciting with very likable characters! I'm not Guadamalan-American but Mexican-American with Mayan roots on my Mom's side of the family. I look completely opposite of Elisa: I'm 6 feet, dark brown hair, fair skinned and blue-eyes. But my Mom and sister look like Elisa but taller 5'7" -8". Can't wait to read more from Pamela!

Interesting concept and well written. Not as good as "The Only Witness", but worth reading.

Great suspense wondering who was causing problems and wondering how Elisa would overcome all the challenges. I just ordered more books from this author.

How do you prove you're innocent when someone accuses you of "faking" your problems? This book made me realize how hard that might be. Elisa's trying her best to run the family business--a plant nursery--after her father's death. As if that wasn't hard enough, there's an earthquake, and an invisible enemy is out to destroy her with vandalism and arson. Her business is failing and with her endless insurance claims, it's no wonder that Jake Street thinks she's an insurance fraud. Great suspense, nice romance, and good laughs, too. Recommended.
