Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

*Starred Review* It's hard to believe that this clever and engaging adventure is Smiley's first novel; it reads like the latest in a well-established series. Smiley's heroine, 30-year-old divorcee Tucker Sinclair, works her tail off at a downtown L.A. financial-advising firm and relaxes at her Malibu-area beach cottage; that is, she would relax if her actress mother wasn't a current houseguest. When her mom goes off to a shamanic retreat, leaving her daughter to care for Muldoon, the wicked Westie, the tuckered Tucker relishes the quiet. But things don't stay quiet for long--a shake-up at work has Tucker in danger of losing the partnership she has worked hard to earn. After writing a business plan for Dr. Milton Polk, who wants to expand his radiology practice, Tucker is shocked to discover that a different, crazy plan has been presented to investors--one of whom wants to sue. To top it off, Polk is missing, and all the paperwork in his file has disappeared. Combing L.A. for clues, Tucker encounters a dead body--and a hot body belonging to a handsome police detective. Fans of Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum will appreciate the gutsy and klutzy Tucker. Jenny McLarin
