Ladies Man by Suzanne Brockmann
Ellen and her children are in New York for the summer. Ellen has decided she needs a change in her life. So, she and her children are there to follow the acting bug. In a case of mistaken identity she meets Detective Sam Schaefer. Her Uncle Bob assumes he is his friend T.S. Harrison. Ellen and Sam are caught in a traffic jam for a couple of hours. Sam tells her who he really is and they spend an enjoyable time together. But, after that one night Ellen decides not to see Sam again, since he is almost 10 years her junior. Then Ellen and her family are confronted with a stalker and they can't figure out who he is after. Sam heads the team trying to unravel the mystery, first thinking it was Bob and then Ellen herself he was after. Later they learn it that T. S. Harrison was the intended victim after Sam takes three bullets protecting him and Ellen. In the end Ellen comes to the conclusion that age doesn't matter after all.
Typical series romance, one of the older books by Brockmann. Good plot and a very easy read. Added bonus with minor characters like Ellen's children Jamie and Lydia. Also Uncle Bob, Ron the limo driver and Sam's friend T.S. A look into cattle call's and what actor's go through to get roles in commercials and also soap operas. The book was very entertaining and the story went quickly, no slow spots at all.
