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.
Megan Murphy, a potter who works part-time as a weekend aide in Colonial Williamsburg, and Patrick Hunter, a newly minted doctor who's taken over a pediatrician's practice there. They meet as a result of a rabbit attack and have to deal with one another because of a temporarily abandoned baby. There's instant... chemistry between them that they both immediately (but not very successfully) try to tone down, and the mixed joy of pretend parenthood as they both try to take care of the baby.
Cute story. Janet Evanovich has a knack for inserting romance into comedy. Or is it comedy into romance? Either way, her stories are incredibly entertaining! This is a re-release of a book that was originally published under the Loveswept line. A fun read.
I love Janet Evanovich. I am embarassed to say that I even love her romance books, and have waited in line hours to get her autograph. I really wanted to like this book. It was BAD. Not at all funny. Not at all interesting. Dull characters. Blech
This was a cute fast read about a potter and a pediatrician. They find love through helping take care of an infant, fixing Thanksgiving dinner with their families, and helping deliver a foal. And throw in an ex-fiance who gets hit with a dart in the behind. This was a typical Evanovich comedy romance. I enjoyed reading it.
I love the Stephanie Plum books but am not as crazy about her first novels. This is one of them. You do still get the feeling of good things to come, though.
In this one, Megan Murphy moves to Williamsburg, Va after she is left at the altar. She meets - a rabbit, who manages to eat part of her costume. The owner retrieves the rabbit; the rabbit returns; Megan returns rabbit. Then a baby is left with the rabbit's owner, a pediatrician new to town. Megan is mistaken for the doctor's wife and gets roped into helping take care of the child until the mother returns. The rest, of course, is history.
A new pediatrician and a determined-to-stay-single woman meet in the park when the good doctor's rabbit is caught chewing on the lady's skirt. Then a single mother leaves her with the doctor to take care of for 2 weeks without giving a reason. It is the Thanksgiving season and betweene the baby and the doctor's family and the lady's family things become quite involved. A nice easy read with a feel good ending!
A fun read about a doctor fresh out of med school with a wonderful sense of humor and an aspiring artist who'd been dumped at the alter living and meeting in Colonial Williamsburg. Made me want to visit Colonial Williamsburg again and look for the little fat bunny.
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.
I read this book in just a few days! It was so great - perfect book for around Thanksgiving too! Evanovich is one of my favorite authors. This book is a republished book of hers, a romance & very good!
When a fiery redhead discovers a floppy eared rabbit gnawing on the hem of her skirt, she means to give its careless owner a piece of her mind- but the owner(the new pediatrician in town) is too attractive to stay mad at for long. A light pleasurable read.
