This review is from: Caught in the Act (Mass Market Paperback)
I utterly adore 1940s movies that center on quirky romance between two people - generally who might have missed each other if it weren't for chance - that tosses them into bizarre but riotous situations. You always feel good at the end of one. The End flashes across the screen and there is a smile on your face. Zebra is giving some fresh voices a chance to rediscover this style of madcap farce romance. One is the very talented Flo Fitzgerald. Another is Pam McCutcheon. When I read The End, closing that last page, there was a smile on my face.
Scott Richmond leave a charity gala. He is bored with his society life. This simple act changes everything. He catches a teenage cat burglar trying to steal his family's jewels. He has a very elaborate security system, which works to keep thieves out. Failing that, it keeps them inside until the cops come to collect them. Being this runt of a thief got in, Scott's curiosity tweaks his to know why she is trying to rob him. He listens to her tail of woe, how her father was the valet to Scott's father and was dismissed with a merger pension and died penniless. She spins a tale how she just wants to get enough money so she can go to Julliard and figures the money the gems would bring would compensate for the shabby treatment her father got from his after years of service. Her tale wins Scott over and he lets her go - with the jewels.
A short time later, Scott catches another female breaking into his home. This time a bit more shapely. Nicole the big sister of Chrissie the cat burglar, has discovered what her little sister did and she hopes to return the jewels to Scott, before the real `cat' is out of the bag - the jewels are fakes. With Nicole's assistants, Scott sets off to learn what happened to the real jewels. In their detective work, they are forced to play at being engaged. Soon, both are secretly wishing their engagement was the real thing.
I really enjoyed the comedic romance, with strong characters that make you care. I missed McCutcheon's My Favorite Husband. So I am off to snag that one based on how much I enjoyed this story.
