When Megan Murphy discovered a floppy-eared rabbit gnawing on the hem of her skirt, she meant to give his careless owner a piece of her mind -- but Dr. Patrick Hunter was too attractive to stay mad at for long!  With his husky bedroom voice he teased her, with his eyes the color of a stormy ocean he tantalized her... and soon she found hers...  more »

I'm not usually one for romance novels but this one was fun and just quirky enough that I had a lot of trouble putting it down once I picked it up!

It's cute, it's breezy, it's funny - it just not the Janet we now have come to know and love.

I think, however, that I'm probably holding the earlier Janet (this book is a re-release of one of her eary, pre-Plum books) to a too-high standard. If it was not an Evanovich, I wouldn't feel like the edge was missing.

Griping aside - an amusing beach read.

Evanovich should stick to Stephanie Plum.

This is an early effort by Janet Evanovich now reprinted. This is a cute romance set in Colonial Williamburg in contemporary times.

Maybe these books are starting to grow on me; I thought this one was cute! Maybe I liked the idea of a potter and a pediatrician loving each other.

This had a bit more plot than most of Evanovichs works. Of course, an animal was involved a rabbit. Actually, this rabbit was a skirt-eating variety (trust me, this is the worst kind)! ;-) Tibbles doesnt seem to have much trouble escaping from Dr. Patrick Hunter.

When Megan Murphy arrives at Hunters home with the rabbit, they are interrupted by one of Hunters patients who promptly leaves her young son with Dr. and Mrs. Hunter just for a couple of weeks. Rather than turn the child in to social welfare agencies, Patrick and Megan decide to share taking care of Tim.

Man-hater Megan takes a second look at the good doctor; Pat has already decided he likes what he sees. Before long, they agree to make Thanksgiving dinner for his parents, who will visit even though cooking isnt in Megans repertoire of skills.

In this book, Evanovich cites logical reasons for Pat delaying marriage (even though he wants to marry Megan). He is saddled with crushing debt from medical school and he has to attract enough patients to develop a practice. This will require extra hours of work each day/night.

Megan has had 3 broken engagements and is leery of the entire male species. When her 3rd fiancée returns (with the engagement ring in tow), Megan starts thinking about her life and choices.

I guess I liked that real decisions had to be made, instead of constant goofiness. Its definitely a light book with loads of fluff.

Fun and lighthearted, sweet and romantic. Quick read for a cold autumn evening siting by a roaring fire.

very thin plot. Far from the Plum series and the best work of the author.
