What a wonderful quick read. Sam's at it again, trying to walk the straight and narrow isn't as easy as it should be. She took a job for the Metropolitan Museum of Art, trying to find items that were stolen years ago and return them to their rightful owners. Isn't that a switch. Now she has to brake in for the right reason, does that make it legal? Trying to protect her, Rick goes along to help. But she knows he's up to something too, which is making her really nervous. Will she take that walk down the aisle? You've got to read it to find out!
Considerably better than the previous book, Billionaires Prefer Blondes, this book gets Sam and Rick back on track. They are getting closer, emotionally, and Rick is ready to take the next step, but commitment-phobic Sam is scared to death. The mystery and adventure progress quickly and does well what it is supposed to do, helps the characters grow.
I'm only sorry that this appears to be the last installment of the series as Enoch has no publisher for the Sam Jellicoe books anymore. A fun finale although it reads like Enoch had fully expected to write another book in the series. It is a reasonably satisfying place to stop.
Fun, fun, fun! This series is just delectable romance/mystery with a dash of humor. In this installment, Sam begins a career retrieving stolen artifacts for museums - exactly the opposite of what she did before, with all the excitement and danger but for the good guys this time. She also struggles with her desire to set down roots against Ricks pressure to make a commitment. Sam is still fun and impulsive, Rick is even more yummy this time around (if that is possible) and the relationship is still just as sigh-worthy But the very BEST part is the ending when Sam FINALLY gets a ring!!!
*The sex ratio in this series is relatively high but is portrayed within a monogamous, committed relationship. Skimming or skipping isn't hard.*
