Publisher's Summary

When an aspiring illustrator attracts the attention of a New Orleans mob family, and secrets long hidden are unearthed from the past, a handsome homicide detective may be her only chance of surviving the Big Easy.

The oldest of thirteen, Alex Baker does two things: he solves murders and avoids children. Until the day Nell Whitby foils a carjacking, knocks Alex off his feet and turns his life upside down. When the shots start flying and every rock he turns over reveals another wise guy, Alex decides he needs to stick close to the quirky yet captivating children's book author while he discovers who is behind a series of mob hits. But can he resist the urge to kiss the kid magnet now in the crosshairs?

A relative newcomer to New Orleans - with no family but her college friend Sarah - Nell spends her days in seeming obscurity, sketching tourists in the French Quarter and serving canapes for Sarah's catering business. When a chance encounter makes Nell the target of a mob hit, the only silver lining is meeting the cute cop who is determined to protect her. But when she finds herself at the head of a second line made up of goons and gangsters, and secrets start bubbling up out of her own past, Nell must figure out what she's made of so she can live long enough to kiss the cop again.

What disappointed you about Relatively Risky?

This is a really light weight book. The premise sounded interesting, but it never delivered. None of the characters were ever fleshed out. I stayed until the end, but I had to forward through chapters to do it.

Would you listen to another book narrated by Kevin Scollin?

Maybe
