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!

This is a story of a guy who owns a radio station, an overworked girl who takes on the traffic report, although she knows nothing about it, and the introduction of Bob, the dog, who shows up later in Stephanie Plum novels. Not the same dog, of course, but the prototype for Bob!

This is the first Evanovich book I have read and it only the first of many to come. Short, sweet, funny. Some wonderful fluff to read after a particularly challenging and serious read. This is a reprint of an earlier version published in 1991.

Daisy Adams jumps at the chance to do traffic reports for the radio station where she has a five-minute spot, Bones for Bowser, giving tips for dog owners. Steve Crow has no other option but Daisy, who is cute, entertaining, slightly goofy, and gets more fan mail than all the other DJ's. But, she isn't traffic reporting material. Throw in a lot of attraction, a little danger, and the assorted comic characters, and Ms. Evanovich's style, and you have an afternoon of romance and laughter.

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!

You know, these non-Stephanie Plum books, even though written by Janet Evanovich, read like someone is trying to imitate Janet Evanovich; they're just not quite the same. The quick turns are gone, the heroes and heroines are more like you'd find in romance novels... It might help you hang on until the next Plum comes out, but if I were you I'd go for a Fannie Flag.

I really like the Stephanie Plum series and when I ran out of those to read I picked up one of these re-released romances Evanovich wrote early in her career. You can see the beginnings of the grandma character that appears in the Plum series in this book. It is OK but not great, though maybe I am not a good judge of romances? A very quick read.

Basic story: a young woman gets a job at a radio station. She needs money and wrangles her way into the traffic reporter job, throwing her in with the boss a lot more. He's handsome and brooding. You can probably guess what happens, generally. Other character come in to give complexity and humor.

This was a happy little romp with another one of Evanovich's quirky self-effacing heroines, comical side-kicks and family members, and egotistical yet strong and loving heros.

In a world so full of strife, 'The Rocky Road of Romance' is a wonderful little mental holiday..." amazon review

Fans of the Stephanie Plum series will love this book. This marks the first appearance of Bob the dog - not sure how he ends up in NJ but he starts at the pound in this book as a puppy. Also - batmobile, powder blue Caddie, disappearing cars, small time croooks with weapons, and crazy old ladies with unregistered guns that are constantly dating. The heroine in this book is more inteligent than Stephanie and the hero is not Ranger or Joe - so the rest of the plot is different but was fun to see some similar elements from a book originally written before the Plum series.

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 favored low-slung sportscars and high-heeled women, but that was before he fell for a free spirit who caught crooks by accident, loved old people and pets, and had just too many jobs!

Loving Daisy turned Steve's life upside down, especially once he adopted Bob,
