Great Beach Fun

I really enjoyed "Risky Business" by Suzanne Macpherson. This a book with characters and the reader is able to relate to and enjoy. The reading is quick and the reader does not lose interest. A great book for the beach or anytime.

Fast, Fresh and Funny!

For her first novel, Suzanne Macpherson spins a fast and funny tale with a breezy style and enjoyable characters. Definitely a good read while basking after a long day, Dove bar in hand and phone off the hook. I'm looking forward to Talk of the Town!

amusing contemporary romantic romp

In order to stay employed, her Manhattan-based agency sends klutzy supermodel Marla Meyers to Granite Insurance in order to safeguard her face. Agent Tom Riley tentatively accepts the three million-dollar policy even after Marla explains her black eye was caused by an encounter with a dress dummy. However, the Home Office in Minnesota demands Tom shadow Marla over the next thirty days before they provide final approval of the account because they categorize her as an accidental risk.Tom figures this is one assignment he will enjoy, as Marla is beautiful. As he begins to hang around the model agency he begins to fall in love with his charge. Marla, who also secretly authors the popular Mike Mason mysteries that Tom enjoys, finds she also loves her protector even when he looks at the early AM starts like something the cat devoured before bringing home. However, will both of these individuals take the RISKY BUSINESS of forging a permanent relationship now that love is everywhere they go?RISKY BUSINESS is an amusing contemporary romantic romp that skews stereotypes in the modeling industry leaving no prisoners. The lead couple is a delightful duo swimming in a pool of zany secondary characters that bring much of the humor to the tale. Though how the home office expected Tom to keep Marla safe is not clear, Suzanne Macpherson provides a droll comedy that will keep them laughing even as the audience will want more works as jocular as this one from this new authorHarriet Klausner

Good fast fun!

I needed a book to take my mind off the annual rigmarole of doing my taxes, and Risky Business did it for me. Tom and Marla are great characters, a little quirkier than the average romance (yay!), the secondary characters are fun and the story is lots of fun. I read this book in one sitting and will definitely add this author to my 'must buy' list.

Thoroughly enjoyed!

This wasn't quite a five star book, but very enjoyable. The characters were fun and reminded me a lot of Jennifer Crusie. It was a fun, quick read. I'm looking forward to more books from this author.
