It takes a lot for a book to make me laugh out loud the way this one did. I finished reading Julie Kistler's half of this Duet several days ago and can't get the story out of my head. It was that good. The heroine is someone you would want for a best friend, smart, clever, fun, impulsive, and funny. The hero is sexy, caring, a little rough around the edges, and more than a match for the heroine. The story is about a woman bored out of her mind with her very ordinary life as a tax lawyer and status as blind-date queen of the world. She's determined to put some adventure in her life and starts by having lunch--a banana split--in a seedy restaurant, a big step in her uptight world. She overhears some characters even seedier than the restaurant talking about a stash of money hidden in San Francisco and it's one wild adventure after another from that moment on. This is a book I will keep and read again. Probably even a third time. When it comes to escape fiction, the kind you simply want to entertain you, this is the best of the best.
