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!
