Special Agent Dante Torelli, gorgeous undercover FBI agent, is hijacked by wacky Zoey Addler immediately following the kidnapping of her neice, Petronella Spicy Hernandez, thankfully nicknamed Pete. (can you imagine going thru life with a name like that?)

Enter Neil, an incompetent (thank God) hitman who brings his own toddler on a hit. And meet Pratima and Savita, two elderly Indian women in saris who steal the kidnappers SUV with their stolen saffron in the back seat along with two toddlers.

Dante is guarding Pete's parents who are testifying against the mob boss of Chicago who apparently wants Dante out of the way. Now Dante and Zoey are are running for their lives while searching frantically for little Pete.

This is a flat-out funny book and at times there is a certain tenderness between Dante and Zoey. It's kinda sweet. Good book!

The book is kind of slow to start with but by the end I could see this book being turned into a romantic action movie... good twist towards the end. On the heat meter... not as hot as some of this authors books. Still well worth the read.

Sure, there is foul language in this book, like others have reviewed, but it didn't bother me. Enjoyed this laugh out loud book. Right from the first chapter the "oddness" begins. Keeping my attention, with like-able characters that I could believe in, and really like. A feel good book for a weekend read, hard to put down. Recommend it, but don't even read this book if the language will upset you.

This book was just okay for me. Kind of quirky. But all in all it was a quick, funny read!

I was not crazy about this book. I felt there were too many supporting characters and not enough development between the H/h. It did have some funny moments, but it is a book I am sorry I spent money on instead of waiting for it through PBS.
