Good but a bit far reaching.,
This review is from: Nerds Like it Hot (Mass Market Paperback)
This is the story of Gillian who is a make up artist who on teh job witnesses a murder by stiletto heel. This isn't just any murder though as the guy that did it has a step father thats head of the mob. Gillian doesn't tell the police in fear she will be killed and goes to see her 80+ friend who just happens to be going on a nerd love cruise and talks Gillian in to going with her. Gillian agrees and they set about how to make Gillian look different...with a new make over, hair cut and dye she goes from mousy, quiet make up artist to Marylin Monroe lookalike. Whilst Gillian is changing Cora (Gillians 80+ friend) calls some PI friends she knows to help protect Gillian on the crusie. When Gillian meets them she falls hard for Lex Manchester. The story goes on with them trying evade mobsters and keep Gillian from being killed in Limbo contests. Along with all this every single one of the main characters finds love on the boat.
The story is good with some truly funny moments but some aspects of the book are really in the realm of fantasy not romance. This in't a book i would read again....not really up to the authors standard!
