|Plot Summary of Nobody but You|
Pocket, Jan 2003, 6.99, 400 pp.
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.
