Can a Mafia princess nicknamed “Party Girl” find common ground with a monster-truck driver called “the Preacher”? Society columnist Eve Caruso has moved back to the family spa in Palm Springs after secretly losing her fortune on an insider trading tip gone wrong. Still grieving for the father she lost at age 12, she doesn’t want anybody to know that now she has lost everything. The only way to stay out of jail is to get the goods on the former lover who is responsible for her financial troubles. This requires mingling with the rich and famous, in spite of her lack of self-confidence. Meanwhile, larger-than-life Nash Cargill, worried that a stalker is after his actress sister, is prowling the grounds of the Kona Kai Spa to keep her safe. Big and brawny, with a good-old-boy demeanor, overly protective Nash can’t stop himself from trying to save Eve. Ridgway continues the fascinating story of the Caruso family, first seen in An Offer He Can’t Refuse (2005).
