Author: Janet Evanovich
When the delightful, daffy Dog Lady of station WZZZ offered to take on the temporary job of traffic reporter, Steve Crow tried to think of reasons to turn Daisy Adams down. Perhaps he knew that sharing the close quarters of a car with her for hours would give the handsome program director no room to resist her quirky charms. He'd always favo...  more »

I thought this book was just a riot. It was a quick read and funny. As this is one of Evanovich's first books slightly reworked you can see certain characters that develope into the Stephanie Plum books.
Daisy is trying to finish her dissertation while doing a handful of odd jobs. She runs a paper route, she is a crossing guard, works at nursing home and does a little 5 minute radio slot on cooking for your pooches. When the regular traffic reporter becomes unavailable at the last minute Daisy begs for the job. While driving and reporting she runs over a drug dealer and finds herself in serious danger. So what does she do? Hire a gun toting geriatric grandmother who thinks the nursing home is just too boring of course.

I got this from the library as an audio book and tormented my poor husband with making him listen to it with me. Much to my delight, he enjoyed it as much as I did. We both laughed so hard, it really perked up our entire weekend. Since then, we've listened to the occasional audio book from this author. I really enjoy her books, whether reading or listening to them. If you get the chance to read this one or any of her other's, I would really recommend them!

Looking for some light reading with a bit of humor? THE ROCKY ROAD to ROMANCE should fill the bill. Author Janet Evanovich, in her pre-Plum days, penned several light romances that have been out-of-print for some time.

Now that the Stephanie Plum series has made it to the movies, Harper Collins decided to re-issue the books to satisfy Evanovichs fans.

You can see traces of Stephanie Plums sense of humor shining through. Daisy is a graduate student finishing her doctorate while holding down 4 to 6 part time (low paying or volunteer) jobs. One of these jobs is at the local radio station, WZZZ.

When the regular traffic jock breaks his leg, the station owner (Steve) must find a replacement. Up walks over-committed Daisy. After 2 hours of training, Steve lets Daisy fly on her own devices. Before long, listeners are howling over the irreverent traffic reports.

While traveling the Virginia-Maryland highways and byways, Daisy manages to clip a major drug dealer who promises to fix-her-wagon permanently. Things begin to sink fast Steve hires 24hour protection for Daisy and starts eating aspirin like cinnamon hot candies.

The two main characters are attracted to each other but Daisy is just too busy. Kevin, brother to Daisy and Elsie Hawkins, Daisys senior-citizen body guard, add much to the zany mix. Oh, and Bob is priceless!

Chuckles abound enjoy!
