To prevent his beloved mother from committing insurance fraud, he convinces Nicole to help him switch the fake jewels for the real ones. In order to gain entrance in the high society homes where the jewels are, Scott convinces Nicole to pretend to be his fiancee. When the job is done, they can stage a scene where Nicole dumps him and they'll both go back to how things were before. Or will they?
CAUGHT IN THE ACT may feature what seems to be a rather silly plot, but it works amazingly well. The characters are what really shine through and Nicole and Scott are quite the couple. They both know that the other doesn't show their true colors and wonder why. Add in some great secondary characters and you have a fantastic romantic comedy that's perfect for a summer afternoon. I hope to read more from Pam McCutcheon in the future.
