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!
Vintage Janet Evanovich! Humor, great story, what more could you want? Definitely a book to help clear your mind of pesky problems.
Typical of the Evanovitch books. It was a cute read, nice beach book.
