The Billionaire Who Wasn't, is a story about two sisters who are the daughters of a convicted swindler. Nina and Tiffany's dad was the head a gigantic Ponzi scam. After he was declare guilty he led the authorities to believe he committed suicide by crashing his plane in the ocean but his body was never found. As if, the girls didn't have enough to deal with enter agent Jason Brody the FBI agent who has been hounding them about their father's hidden loot. Agent Brody was convince that Nina and Tiffany knew where their dad was and where he has hidden all of his ill gotten gains or least he did. Now he claims that he has found evidence to prove that their father is innocent and he wants them to help find him so that they and exonerate him. So begins a comical escapade to various countries in search of the girl's missing father. The three main personalities are continually at odds with each other, agreeing on very little and always bickering. They are a real hoot. This is well written mystery-comedy that is both compelling and entertaining. A truly enjoyable book. I highly recommend reading this novel, you will love it.

I received a free copy of this book and I'm glad I did. The cover and blurbs didn't do much for me. However, once I started reading I found it to be just great. The style of writing is very supportive of the byplay between the two, not-so-friendly sisters, and also the continuing interaction with Agent Brody (call me Jason), the always in pursuit FBI agent. Humorous incidents throughout the book show the nature of the girls and their friends. Despite the humor, a serious story is unfolding. Most of the book is procedural as the sisters help Agent Brody to find their missing, possibly-dead, father. I enjoyed the tracking that eventually led to the missing father. Many mysteries are unveiled as the family, Agent Brody, and the FBI extraction team come together in Columbia. The book was entertaining and suspenseful, with very realistic characters. I couldn't ask for anything more.

Most of the suspense novels I’ve read have been dark and depressing. Not this one! The humor between the two sisters kept me laughing, and the plot had me turning pages late into the night. Great characters, great plot twists, great read. Highly recommended!
