PI Salvatore "Sam" Romano is worried that his godfather, a retired jewel thief, will attempt to steal a $5 million necklace. Sam isn't the only one staking out the museum. Chaos breaks out when attorney A.J. Potter and her man-magnet skirt arrive as thugs simultaneously attack, leaving Sam's godfather to take the rap. A.J. agrees to represent the older man and to work with Sam on his case, but absolutely refuses to respond to Sam's romantic overtures. Wry and witty, Cara Summers's SHORT, SWEET AND SEXY (4.5) is a fabulous comic mystery, guaranteed to keep you turning the pages. And her hero is a definite keeper, too.
