For his bravery, the owner lets him pick anything he wants from the store as a reward. He was attracted to her. Another great throw back from Carly Phillips! It just seems bad form for a lovable character like Charlotte to stoop to something so low just to relive the boredom while her new husband was away serving in the Korean War. I liked this book at the beginng, then it got a little irritiating. Not ones that elicited feelings of any kind.
Kiss Me If You Can is a Romantic Mystery. I can't wait to see how she handles falling in love! Does Lexie's view of her Grandmother change after she finds out the truth and in turn make her guess her own life? However, there are a few things holding each other back, Coop does not want to fall in too deep with someone whom has no roots and likes to leave on a moments notice, and Lexie is running away, but she does not know that she is until she faces her parents and has a heart to heart with them. Coop gains semi fame status when he catches a jewelry store robber in the act. Sam Cooper is a reporter for the crime beat who finds himself the center of his own beat after he stops a jewelry-store robbery. Nothing is better than reading a book from one of your favorite authors and discovering that she has adding something different in it for you. Interesting to occasionally hear Coop's thoughts. Lexie tracks down Coop to try and buy the ring from him, but Coop has uncovered that the ring is actually stolen.
The resolution of the story was a little too easy, but it like I said it was a light read so I expected this. Instead, free-spirited Lexie is interested in Coop's antique ring, and its—potentially scandalous—history in her family. His attention is centered solely on Lexie Davis, the only woman in the city who claims not to be interested in his bachelor status. Sop far Carly Phillips has yet to disappoint. Not to mention by Lexie herself. It gives me the chance to re read and fall in love all over again. But Coop is quickly becoming more than just her route to the ring.
They do agree to give up the jewelry to the family's foundation anynmously, but only because Coop and Lexi guilt them into it. Not a hardship, he thought, meeting her gaze. When she sees the news story about Coop and gets a closer look at the ring, she is floored to realize that it looks to be a match to a necklace her beloved grandmother wears. But Coop isn't interested in the admirers sending racy underwear his way. Lexi is web designer that lives part time with her grandmother when she is state side. These two are in for a wild ride of mystery and mayhem.
Instead, Coop is a crime reporter for The Daily Post in New York City. The audience was able to feel the characters pain, desperation, and frustration right up to the very end. Lexie Davis is a web designer and world traveler. I was pleasantly surprised that I did enjoy this story line. The two team up to discover what they can about the set. He selects a gawdy antique ring that just happens to have a story behind it. I love characters that can make me laugh.
Likewise Coop, who is desperate to fulfill the white picket fence fantasy, comes to admit that maybe traveling around the world with someone who means the world to you, can be just as exciting. I had all the things I wanted in a good book, romance, adventure and Carly phillips even gave us a really good mystery too. Lexi is the world traveler with daddy issues. No, what was so terrible was the voices she did for Lexi's grandmother Charlotte and Charlotte's friend Slyvia. On that note, this was available from the library as an audio book, and the one thing I remember from previous Phillips books is the dialogue is usually very quick witted and sexy, so I thought l It's been quite some time since I've read anything by Carly Phillips, not because her books are awful, but because her books for me are just fluff. I thought that little mystery was well thought out and executed and thought how it was resolved was practically perfect.
I came home to this. In Kiss Me If You Can, crime reporter Sam Cooper is in the right place at the right time, and stops a theft at a jewelry store. Of course this means that they must spend more time together and quickly find themselves in each other's arms. Sam and Lexie are instantly attracted to one another, but soon find out they each live life differently. Heroine was a tad annoying at times but overall she was bearable.
When her grandmother notices the ring, she seems to have some secret to hide. Nothing is better than reading a book from one of your favorite authors and discovering that she has adding something different in it for you. Well into the 'Really Liked It' range. Little does he know how much hassle this ring is going to cost him. Lexie is a woman on the go, always traveling around the world. Just a friend, Drew had said of the woman in Paris.
