Is there an order to those books?  I have a few of them and I  want to know if I should read them in a particular order.  Thanks :)

not sure of the order but they build on each other sorta though you could read them individually. the first is 'full house' and it introduduces a brother/sister as secondary characters and in the other books that brother is the main character along with a girlfriend and his sister's story sorta progresses too with her husband. the girlfriend's dog and aunt? are also introduced. each IMO 'could' stand alone and I did read a couple out of order..seems like 'full s peed' was my favorite though!

Yes there is . You don't have to read them in order but i would recommend it. The stories in each book are sort of a continuation of the previous one. It is a great series. Just finished her last one and now i have to wait till she writes the next.

They all go in order by the number in the title.

Hope this helps, enjoy the books

They are similar to Evanovich's Plum series in wit and laughs but more romantic and a bit sexy.  Its like a combination of her older books that they are reprinting and her Plum series, in my opinion. Each has a mystery in it too.

I like full speed best! In the first book, full house, the main character (Max) is introduces as a teenager. then the books focus on him and some have his older sister and her wrestler hubby Franky? think that's his name. the gf of Max gets an old pickup that comes with a dog with fleas..seems like his name is Fleas or something like that. very cute. and seems like she has an aunt who's fu nny like grandma mazur is in the stephanie plum stories. just light fun reading...I think these were under 'romance' but not sure and sex isnt' the focus in these..they're more funny than anything I think.

I actually just posted nearly all of these books tonight!  I love them.  I've read the books and then when taking a long trip (Florida to Michigan) I get the audio books and listen to them in the car. 

These are really quick reads for me, but they are so enjoyable that mood is instantly raised reading them.  The colaboration between Janet and Charlotte Hughes is wonderful. 

Read the first one but have the rest of them handy!

***Edited to say that I have just taken all of these books to my local Salvation Army.  I know they will go quickly there.
