Very funny book.
From the back cover:
"Dana Wiley's True Confessons (Or How Did I Get into This Mess?)
My mother's being held by kidnappers, and only Nick Maybe, the man I left at the altar six years ago, knows how to find the ransom - a big, smelly, flightless parrot.
Manhattan isn't exactly ideal for wildlife - unless you are talking about me and Nick. How can a man I haven't seen in six years make me so crazy - in all meanings of the word!
So the bird's worth a quarter million, and it turns out we're not the only ones who want it. Great. And Nick keeps looking at me with those eyes and kissing me with those lips...Oh, what the hell. There isn't a statute of limitations on love. Is there?"
Kakapo: fat, graceless, looks like a green chicken, black beady eyes that kinda look like an owl, long honker curving down the front of its face sort looking like Horshack from Welcome Back, Kotter, smelly and honks like an eighteen wheeler screeching to a violent halt. How's that for a bird that everybody wants??? Nick wants to get it back to save Babs who doesn't really need to be saved and Dana needs Nick but won't tell him. She could use the money too to save her winery. There's Finn, whose the bird thief and Vivian and Gary who need the bird to collect on the insurance money. Then of course there's Simon, from the Conservation Society. He's trying to get the bird too. LOL All for an ugly stinky bird.....
This was a fun read - good characters, good story and a strange bird. Good times!
A really fun, humorous book, and an author that I'll definitely pick up again!
If you like Carly Phillips, you will love this zany book about a woman, the man who she left at the altar, her nuttty Mom and a stolen parrot. Fun, with discreet sex scenes.
The book was amusing and a quick read.
cute, quick read! sassy & fun!
This is my second book I have read by Lani Diane Rich (LDR), I do NOT like Romance books, they tend to be insipid, and not too creative in their plots nor themes. But because I liked the very first book I read by LDR, The Fortune Quilt, that I decided to give her other books a try.
I read this book in one night. This book was so funny, and full of great lines. You will find fun characters, a cat and mouse chase of comical villains and bad guys, plus a realistic story of true love. This is much more like a romantic comedy or a screwball comedy. But this is not chic lit.
It could use a better title, but I really cant see anyway to improve on this book beyond that.
