This is a high-octane misadventure with hot nights, high stakes, cold-blooded murder, and NASCA Guy. That about covers what a good novel needs. I've got the book, you add the chocolates and comfortaqble chair.
A thrilling, high octane misadventure with high stakes, hot nights, cold blooded murder, sunken treasure, a woman with a chassis built for speed, and one very good, very sexy NASCAR driver who's along for the ride. As usual, Janet Evanovich does not disappoint!
Another series, another sleuth for Janet Evanovich! I found this to be a fun-filled read that I completed in two days! Evanovich's writing is entertaining and humorous, the kind that takes your mind off the serious things in your life and offers an escape to another world, this time Florida and Cuba. Don't get me wrong, there are some intense times with bullets flying and you wonder if the characters are going to make it, but, in the end, Alex Barnaby prevails and I am looking foward to reading the sequel, Motor Mouth.
"Metro Girl" is a good fun read. It made me laugh out loud or chuckle a good number of times and had just enough suspense to keep you going. The characters were unique, with the main character being a spunky, gutsy person out to rescue her brother & friends.
This is the first book in the Alexandra Barnaby series, involving a cocky NASCAR driver. I thought this book was hilarious and it's now got a place of honor on my 'keeper shelf' along side the next book "Motor Mouth".
This is a normal Evanovich book with funny, and implausible, situations. However, it is fun to read, and you want to keep turning the pages to see what happens next. As a dog ower, the scenes with the dog are sometimes quite hysterical.
I don't know why I waited so long to get on the Alex Barnaby bandwagon--Janet Evanovich is witty and now I understand the hype! This is the start of a to-die-for series! Great characterization, fun innuendos, fast pace...this was a read-in-a-single day, couldn't put it down, romp through Florida that immediately made me want to pick up the sequel.
I read this after reading the Stephanie Plum series, and I found that this book follows the same formula...romance, crazy comical plots, funny secondary characters, and a horny male main character. I don't have a problem with this at all. In fact, this formula works great in the Stephanie Plum series, but I wasn't too crazy about it in this book. It was alright, but maybe I'm just too stuck on my Jersey girl (like me) Stephanie and her hot men, lol.
Alex gets caught up in something because she's trying to take care of her brother. With the help of a NASCAR driver she befriends, they rescue her brother from the bad guys save the girl and find the gold. Fun fast fantasy read...set in Miami and the Keys.
This amazing story.Alex also known as Barnaby finds herself in Miami searching for her brother who is in trouble. She finds help in a Nascar man. It is fast pace, hilarious. If you are a Stephanie Plum fan - you will love Alex.
This was my first Evanovich read and I LOVED it.I promptly went out and started reading the Plum series. This was one of my favorite books I have read in a very long time. Great, quick, fun, funny, fast moving, action-packed book. I thoroughly enjoyed it and cannot wait for the second book to be released!
Similar to Stephanie Plum books. Almost as funny but still a great read. Alexandra Barnaby goes in search of her brother who disappeared after a mysterious phone call. Things just get hairier after that.
There are a couple of colorful characters in this book also.
Janet Evanovich is a great writer!
