|Plot Summary of Let Me Call You Sweetheart|
Prosecutor Kerry McGrath sees a woman she thinks she recognizes in the office of plastic surgeon Dr. Smith while accompanying her young daughter, Robin, for an appointment. Kerry realises this woman eerily resembles a murdered woman, Suzanne Reardon, found strangled to death with sweetheart roses scattered over her body. It was a vicious crime the media dubbed the 'Sweetheart Murder' case. Suzanne's husband, Skip Reardon, was charged and convicted, due mostly in part to the suspect testimony of her father - the self-same Dr. Smith.
Kerry starts to wonder why Dr. Smith would re-create the face of his dead daughter. This leads her down many avenues of investigation, including that of some shady clients of her criminal lawyer ex-husband that have been accused of corruption; a sophisticated man of wealth and a private art collection, Jason Arnott; and Dr. Smith himself.
As Kerry becomes more concerned that there might have been a miscarriage of justice, she faces negativity from all sides as she looks into the possiblity that Skip might be innocent. With her appointment to the judgeship on the line, Kerry defies all opposition and pursues justice at the risk of her own life and that of her daughter.

Suzanne Reardon was killed and her husband Skip was in prison for the murder. He wanted to overturn the conviction and spoke with Lawyer Kerry White. Suzanne's father was a plastic surgeon who made women look like his daughter Suzanne. The ending did not turn out anything like you would ever expect.
