"amusing romantic suspense"
As she turns thirty, Jacey Wilder feels it is past time to
straighten out her life. She decides a good place to start
is with Albert Alcott, a man she met while on vacation.
She deserted Albert when she thought he might be a serial
killer, but realizes her error. She hires private
detective David Anderson to locate the man though she
believes he is a flake.
David quickly learns that Albert never graduated from
Harvard Law as he boasted to Jacey. Next he takes her to
Albert's former address only to learn he died. David
provides solace, but Jacey is not hurting.
Meanwhile Albert faked his death and has returned from
Mexico seeking the diamonds he stole from mobster Joey
Malori. As Albert and Joey converge on Jacey, she and
David fall in love, but he will earn his fee keeping his
beloved client safe.
NOBODY BUT YOU is an amusing romantic suspense as only
Julie Kenner can write. The story line cleverly combines
humor with tension and intrigue so that the audience has a
delightful tale though how fast the mob catches up with
Albert upon his return seems stretched. The lead couple
belongs together and the support cast (from his aunt to the
crooks) makes for a wonderful read for sub-genre fans.
