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.

It's your average read where things get worse and worse...nothing really special about it but it's not entirely horrible either.
Not worth the price!
I downloaded this book as an e-book without noticing it was barely 75 pages in length. It is really better termed a "booklet", not a book, and at $9.99 it was REALLY not worth the price.
The story showed potential as a light, fluffy, fun beach or holiday read. If only the author had taken time to develop her characters and storyline, instead of racing headlong to the conclusion as though she was bored with the story herself.
I really cannot recommend this book.
