Very funny book. Highly recommended.
A very good read, mystery & romance.
What do you get when you have a tough vegas private eye, add a conserative investment banker, half million dollars, a pair of grandparents in love and throw in an Elvis impersonator -- its a recipe for a humorous and fun book by Lori Wilde that you wont want to miss!!!
Reminds me a bit of the Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanovich
Lori Wilde is reliable with her stories. You know what you are getting.
Las Vegas PI Charlee Champagne has an Elvis impersonator for a father. Her mother, Bubbles Champagne, a dancer with the Folies Bergere, died when she was young, leaving Charlee to be raised by her grandmother, Maybelline. Charlee's funny, flip, and fearless--except when she's around black widow spiders and handsome men. Investment banker Mason Gentry falls handily into the last category. He bursts into Charlee's life with the announcement that his grandfather has taken half a million dollars from their company, and he thinks that the senior Gentry might be with Maybelline. They go to her grandmother's ransacked trailer, and soon find themselves dodging bullets and being followed by thugs. But neither the hired muscle nor a memorable episode of mistaken identity can deter them from finding their grandparents. A by-the-book banker and a book-them-any-way-you-can detective find out that of all the calamities life throws at them, love can be the most dangerous of all. With a sassy, in-your-face style, reminiscent of Janet Evanovich, Wilde has created an unforgettable heroine.
Fast paced and extremely enjoyable!
A Las Vegas private eye and an investment banker join forces and more in the search for a missing grandfather.
I loved this! It was funny and packed full of action!
Great story, lots of romance & a lot of laughs.
First book I have read by Lori Wilde and she is a really good writer. The characters are funny and very likable. It was nice to see the heroine as the "wild one" and the Hero the "tame preppy" for a change. The chase that the H and h end up on is a fun ride and the secondary characters are not too involved to make things get muddled. I will deffinately read more of her contemps!
