I'm not a fan of Janet Evanovich's other series (isn't it an alphabet theme or something?), but somewhere along the line I picked up this one and was glad I did. It was thoroughly enjoyable -- good writing, interesting characters and a good story line. Another perfect "summer read."
This is book 6 in a cute romantic series by Janet Evanovich and Charlotte Hughes. Anyone who has read one or two of these stories will surely want to read more. This book introduces a few new characters, but still has some of the favorites such as Fleas the wonder dog, Jaime and Max Holt, and Vera. A light, funny romance.
