In this continuation of the Madaris Family Saga, Ms. Jackson has written another keeper with UNFINISHED BUSINESS. I have to say that I've loved Ms. Jackson's foray into romantic suspense, especially with her richly engaging characters of the Madaris family.

In UNFINISHED BUSINESS, we finally get the story of the youngest Madaris, Christy. Pampered, wealthy, and riding high with the fulfillment of being an investigative reporter, Christy wants for nothing-nothing, that is, except for the love of the one man she's always wanted. True, Alex Maxwell only promised to marry her as a whim back when she was a teenager, but the heart doesn't care whether the offer was made in jest or not. Back when she was thirteen, it didn't occur to her that Alex was playing when he gave her that pretend ring and asked for her hand in marriage. Christy has always loved Alex, and time has only made that love grow deeper.

For Alex, who runs his own highly successful and lucrative private investigations firm, Christy was just a kid when he made his vow of undying love and marriage. But now, years later, seeing the beautiful and talented woman who is a success in her own right causes him to sit back and think-did he make a mistake letting Christy Madaris get away so easily all those years ago? After Christy came home from college and he so quickly laughed away that childhood promise of marriage, she never forgave him-and Alex did nothing to help ease the hurt of her broken heart.

But now trouble has followed Christy to Cincinnati, and Alex's old buddies, Christy's older brothers, have asked him to keep an eye on her. What no one realizes is that, at least for Alex, keeping Christy close is no hardship. But can Christy's hurt pride and Alex's hurtful jesting from years ago be forgiven long enough to keep Christy safe-and to allow another chance for this destined to be together couple?

Kudos to Ms. Jackson for another wonderful installment of the Madaris Family Saga; an installment that is rife with suspense, tense dialogue, and a passion that defies the passing of time. ( )

This story is about Christy Madaris and Alexander Maxwell. Alexander is the friend of Christy's older brothers. She has been in love with Alex since she was a little girl and at Christy's 13th birthday party, Alex gives her his pinky ring and tells her that when she is older, he will marry her.

Christy believes Alex and it wasn't until Christy was in her early 20's that Alex told her that he wasn't serious and that he was trying to comfort her at the time.

The truth was, Alex had actually fallen in love with Christy through the years but was afraid about what her three overprotetive brothers would do and say.

Of course, it's a happy ending - they end up together but not without a kidnapping, a lot of fighting, and an impromptu marriage. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0312989989, Mass Market Paperback)

Investigative reporter Christy Madaris doesn't want to complicate her life with romance. She made that mistake once when she believed Alex Maxwell's promise to marry her. True, Alex made that promise when Christy was just a teenager. But she believed him with all her heart-and when Alex laughed it off years later, Christy was crushed.

The owner of his own P.I. firm, Alex Maxwell refuses to compromise everything he's worked for to honor a silly promise. Christy should have known he was only teasing, right? But when Alex finally sees Christy again, he knows he made a big mistake. She has grown up into a smart and stunning woman-and Alex can't get her off his mind.

When Christy's latest story takes a dark turn, the Madaris brothers ask Alex to keep her safe. But putting Alex in charge of Christy is like putting a rooster in charge of the hen house! The more she snubs him, the more he wants her. But when Christy's life is in danger, can Alex save her before it's too late?
