Mac's sometimes girlfriend, sexy Sunny Alvarez, wants him to pop the question, but Mac likes his life just as it is. A woman's scream in the night, a diamond watch, a famed Hollywood star posing as a waitress in a French bistro, and a money-laundering scheme all combine to lead Mac and Sunny on a chase that uncovers buried bodies, frozen bodies, and a host of lovable dogs.
With its tightly-knit plot, interesting characters, and short, snappy chapters, Adler is sounding more like James Patterson than the Adler of old. And she handles the change in tone very well. Readers will still enjoy her unparalleled use of local color as the characters travel from Malibu to Rome to Paris and beyond, and she definitely knows how to write a nice love story. For romance, suspense, and just an all-around good whodunit, Adler hits the jackpot with this one.
Elizabeth Adler seemed to take on a different style of writing in this book than is usual for her books but it seemed to work. Some may think it not her best writing but I found it quite enjoyable.
