Author: Janet Evanovich, C. J. Critt (Narrator)
For months he'd thought of her as the Mystery Woman, draped in a black velvet cloak, with outrageous red curls, flawless skin, and carrying a large, odd case -- but the night David Dodd saw a helicopter drop a chunk of metal through the roof of his lovely neighbor's bedroom, he got to meet the formidable and delightful Katherine Finn at ...  more »

Sugary but far from insubstantial, eccentric characters abound in Evanovich's novels, and this title is no exception. There's Katherine Finn, a professional cellist with outrageous Little Orphan Annie hair; David Dodd, a lottery-winning hunk who is a member of the couch-potato club; and Elsie Hawkins, a 72-year-old burger slinger with a Dirty Harry style and an unlicensed WWII 45. C.J. Critt's performance is top-notch with rapid-fire repartee and sizzling sexual tension. She mixes characters, mishaps, misunderstandings, wisecracks, and romance into a well-paced mystery, which culminates in a wedding and a perfectly blended family.

What a great story with lots of laughs. Kate is a cellist with no time on her hands and house with no furniture until a camera and it's tripod crash through roof and second floor ceiling. This is when her nice ordered-chaotic life take a turn towards just plain chaotic. She finally meets her new handsome next door neighbor who has won the lottery and appears to have no motivation to get a job while at the same time takes on a boarder, a 75 year old lady name Elsie Hawkins who totes around a gun in her purse. I couldn't put this book down and couldn't stop laughing, especially when Elsie was on the scene. Great book!

Kathryn Finn lives her life in the fast lane rushing everywhere. This hare meets the tortoise when something comes crashing through Katherines roof and lands on her bed. David Dodd is just a kid at heart, enjoying life. Two more ill-matched people could not be imagined.

David has noticed his neighbor rushing past his window on many occasions. However, the day the camera pod crashed through Katherines ceiling was the first time they met. He decides hes going to marry Kathryn; she decides David is not good marriage material because he constantly seemed to play.

This is the first Elsie Hawkins book. One can already see Grandma Mauzer emerging; a saucy older person eager to shoot anyone who looks wrong.

I guess Evanovich is laughing all the way to the bank; but I would have died if someone had revived this book and reprinted it (if I were its author). In a word, it is awful. Even CJ Critt (reader) couldn't save it. 1 star

This book started out similar to Manhunt and so I was not sure that I wanted to listen to it. I am glad that I did. A very cute story

I listened to this in one day while working at my computer. I found my attention kept straying away, but that that didn't keep me from falling the story. Fairly simplistic and formulaic stuff - fluffy but enjoyable, if you're not looking for a complex story. It reminded me a lot of "The Rocky Road to Romance" by Evanovich. Very driven woman with a full schedule and no money meets a rich man who falls head over heels for her, even though she says she doesn't have time for a relationship.

The one thing I don't like about any of Evanovich's books on audio is that I find the reader's voice (C. J. Critt) to be incredibly grating.
