Last year Beth Ciotta wrote a book called All About Evie. We as readers did learn quite a bit about Evie, but she was such an interesting character that I knew when I finished reading I was going to want to see more of her. Luckily for me, and others like me, Beth Ciotta has now given us the perfect Valentineís Day presentÖEverybody Loves Evie.
In this second installment of the Chameleon Chronicles, Evie is now in London with Arch. He is teaching her about running the different types of scams that Chameleon is known for. When she accepts a position with Chameleon Arch isnít thrilled because he has know itís against the rule for coworkers to date. He may not be willing to say what exactly he feels for her, but he wants her.
Upon her return to the states, things arenít what she was expecting. Milo Beckett, her new boss, was a bit less than honest when he offered Evie a job. She was expecting a job as another operative and he wants her to sing in his bar. But immediately Evie learns her mother may be involved in a scam and Milo not only agrees to let her go home, he offers to go with her.
Can she save her parentís money, and while helping them will she be able to salvage the relationship between herself and her parents? What about her relationship with Arch? Milo? Can Evie even have any sort of relationship until she figures out herself first?
Ms. Ciotta writes Evie as a down to earth good doer who has had the sorts of experiences that many of us fantasize about. Everybody Loves Evie has its thrilling moments, but itís not a thriller, instead itís a nice romantic comedy, just perfect for the month of February with itís hearts and flowers abounding.
