Gina Gallo is a gemologist who would like nothing better than to run her little jewelry shop. Unfortunately she's also "the Goddaughter," and, as she tells her new friend Pete, "you don't get to choose your relatives." And you can't avoid them when you live in Hamilton and they more or less run the place. When Gina bumps into Pete at the Art Gallery Gala, sparks fly. So do bullets, when her cousin Tony is taken down by rival mobsters from New York. It turns out Tony was carrying a load of hot gems in the heel of his shoe. When Gina is reluctantly recruited to carry the rocks back to Buffalo, the worst happens: they get stolen. Pete and Gina have no choice but to steal them back, even though philandering politicians, shoe fetishists, and a trio of inept goons stand in their way. It's all in a day's work, when you're the Goddaughter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast and Funny! I loved this book. Melodie Campbell really knows how to hook a reader and keep them hooked! I was just going to read a few pages of the Goddaughter, but I couldn't stop. I got caught up in the clever story and the comical situations. The characters were very engaging and the romance believeable. I can't wait for Goddaughter 2.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Screwball Caper - Great Read Cross Agatha Christie's Tommy and Tuppence stories with Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series and you get The Goddaughter - but funnier. Melodie Campbell constructs a screwball caper worthy of Hepburn and Grant. In fact, I think it would make a great date movie. The balance between action, romance and comedy is perfect.
