I really enjoyed "Wife for Hire". It was entertaining and sweet. The protagonists are likable and it's fun to watch them navigate through the charmingly absurd circumstances that are signature Evanovich. If you're in the mood for something light, fun, and romantic--this book would be an excellent choice

Re-release issue Nov 2007. Cute story. Maggie can't wait to get out of her hometown, where she has always been different and talked about. Only she runs right to another small town with all of the same "problems". It is her relationship with Hank that finally makes her understand that everyone has to face their problems, and running away isn't the answer.

It was a light and fast read. I like this author in general, and this book displayed the humor I have come to appreciate from her. Lots of surprises, and the housekeeper rocks. I loved the family dynamics and the people in the town were WONDERFULLY written. I really recommend this book if you're looking for something fun, a little silly, but will leave you with warm fuzzies and a smile.

Usual Janet Evanovich "cute". Not as good as her Plum series. Weak ending. I was a little disappointed in this one.

Original released in 1990 and released in 11/2007... As usual with Janet Evanovich's books, this one had me laughing out loud. I don't find many things funny, however when it's a book by Evanovich it tickles my funny bone.
Hank decides he needs to hire a wife so he can get the bank to loan him money.... Little did he know he was getting more then he bargained for when he hired Maggie.....
