One of my favorite books

The story started out well, but then it was choppy for me. I felt like the author was trying to throw in the love scenes while building the characters and their issues. It just didn't flow well. I ended up liking Magee's character best, wanted to know more about rock climbing, and felt for his personal issues and conflicts; while with Felicity, her character was enjoyable but I wasn't as involved with her issues. Her cousin Ben's disappearance served to push the plot forward with no other meaning, and when she had her epiphany, it seemed forced and unreal. The ending felt rushed. There were characters from An Offer You Can't Refuse where I thought it would have been better to leave them out or talk more about them; the supporting characters and subplots weren't doing anything for me like in her other books. Overall, I thought the author tried to deal with too many issues and too many characters that it didn't flow well and ditracted from the main characters and their romance. Nevertheless, it was still a good fun read, just not one of her best.

Nicely written, storyline keeps you wanting more and the steamy scence are well...steamy! Som references to 'An Offer He Can't Refuse' but not really connected. Very much enjoyed this book.

In Vegas, GetTV host Felicity Charm is thrilled when she wins the ¿Joanie¿ for her selling of electronic items. However, she has no time to bask in her glory as her California based family of nuts and con artists intercede. Aunt Vi asks Felicity to come home to Half Moon to solve the problem of her cousin vanishing. Although she prefers to avoid her family of rascals at all cost, Felicity is the troubleshooter so she drives across the desert..................... However, Felicity¿s hits a car sitting on the side of the road in an isolated area. The other driver Michael Magee insures she is okay by taking her to his nearby abode. That night they fall into each other¿s arms, but not long afterward she learns his secret. He promised his deceased best friend that he would take care of his widow and daughter who happen to be first and second cousins to his ¿Lissie¿ as he calls the woman who crashed into his heart................................ Though her family comes out of You Can¿t Take It With You without the charm as they use and abuse the serious minded Felicity, fans will enjoy this lighthearted romp because of the two likable protagonists. The contrast between Felicity and her family has made her feel as if she was adopted as they could never share the same DNA as she takes life seriously while they go from one caper to another. Michael becomes the equal sign between everyone, but he has made a death bed pledge that makes it unlikely that he and his beloved will forge a permanent relationship.....................
