All in one day, city girl Breanne Mooreland gets left at the altar, takes the flight from hell to her honeymoon--alone--loses her luggage, and ends up snowed in at a Sierra mountains lodge run by the kookiest staff this side of the Addams Family. Oh, and there just happens to be a gorgeous naked man taking a shower in her suite who says he isn't going anywhere. Burned-out ...more

She should have realized that the groom not showing up was the first sign that her life was about to go completely awry, now facing a naked man in her honeymoon suite has her running for the door.

Tied for my favorite of JS's work. For a murder mystery with romance and humor I liked this story. The heroine decides to go on her honeymoon alone after she is left at the altar.
Some people said her accidently picking up the complimentary honeymoon suite lighted vibrator instead of the flashlight when the lights go out ( of course the lights go out! This is a "secluded-lodge-in-the-woods" kinda mystery) was not funny, but I was FOFLMAO. Plus, the hero is a sexy cop. :o) What book does it ti

A crazy cute story, as to be expected from Jill Shalvis. The chapter headers were very hilarious. I am a sucker for a comedic romance and can always count on JS for that.
Truly an enjoyable read. And the sex was very hot and wicked. That's cool copper Cooper for you.

Get a Clue by Jill Shalvis is a crazy book, with a haunted house, weird help, people disappearing, lights going off. Crazy in one word.
Breanne our heroine has just been dumped at the altar for the 3rd time. Yup, she chooses the worst men ever. She is the baby of the family and has her father and four brothers wrapped around her finger, she changes jobs frequently. So, after being dumped, braving a bumpy flight, loosing her luggage, she arrives in the middle of the night to the place she was supp

What a great story this is! A little on the steamy side and a little bit of suspense wrapped up into a wonderful read that I thoroughly enjoyed!

This story is about a woman named Breanne who all her life has always makes the wrong choices. Being left at the altar (THREE TIMES) she decides this final time she is giving up men, NO MORE MEN. So she uses her honeymoon to get away for a bit, ALONE in the Sierra mountains in a fully staffed lodge. That is until she stumbles upon a hottie in her shower

Take the heat and sizzle from an episode of DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES, mix it in with the mystery from MURDER, SHE WROTE, then stir it together with a dash of the exotic from SIX FEET UNDER and what you have is Jill Shalvis's romantic-mystery-comedy, GET A CLUE. The current installment in the "Wicked" Women Whodunit series, this book is sure to make you laugh, pant, and cheer-all at the same time.

Breanne Mooreland is having a really bad day. Left standing at the altar, she decides there's only one w

If Aussie Rules mystery was backburner quality, this books mystery quotient was practically non-existent. I just couldn't get into it at all. I don't have trouble with love at first sight books, but I just wasn't buying it in this case. Maybe because the characters seemed unrealistic. If I am supposed to believe Breanne is tough and independent, then make her act tough and independent. Don't make her cry at the drop of a hat and jump into some random guys arms every chance she gets. Being scared ...more

*Edit: I finished reading it and I really enjoyed it. Having said that, I have to admit that I do not think it's the best book I read by Jill Shalvis, but somehow it took me on a trip down memory lane and reminded me of my own little "quirks" and things I enjoy(ed) doing such as falling in love (or lust) for the very first t

Breanne Mooreland has had the worst day of her life. Her fiancé left her at the alter, the airline lost her luggage and there is a strange yet sexy naked man in her honeymoon suite. To top it all off, Breanne stumbles on a dead body and the sexy stranger is a cop ...

The quirky characters, steamy romance and modest mystery make this a surprisingly entertaining read.

Breanne and Cooper have amazing chemistry and their scenes together are hot and spicy. Nevertheless, their instal

To tell the truth, I'm not sure how this book got such reviews. Personally, I hated it.
This book *sigh* was disastrous. The characters were annoying, the plot was boring as hell, and it wasn't worth the money at all.
I downloaded this book with such high hopes. It had good reviews, it had an catching summary and the plot, which is a spin off of Clue, sounded perfect. I downloaded the sample on my kindle, read it, and went, 'Wow, this is Jill Shalvis?' I bought the book anyways, and continued to r

It's probably better to be prepared to avoid any strong deceptions. This is definitely not a romantic suspense, more of a romantic comedy. Yes, there's an investigation regarding a murder, but it looks more like a Cluedo game. And even the way the investigation was solved had a strong redolence of the game (view spoiler).
The whole story takes place ove

A light quick fun read. A farce in two acts basically. Our heroine, Breanne Moreland is dumped at the alter for the third time and decides to go on the honeymoon by herself. Due to a highly unlikely series of events, she ends up trapped in a mountain lodge in a snowstorm in a room with a cop on hiatus, no clothes to wear, cut off from the world, and a dead body in the basement. Light and fun. Being a Jill Shalvis book, there is still a fair chunk of hot sex and funny lines to be had. Don't try t ...more

This is one murder mystery where I really wished the killer would off the heroine. She was infuriating. IN. FUR. I. A. TING.

This was a hell of a good read! Wow!
The story was original, hot, mysterious, sexy, cute, hilarious, scary....you name it!
I also smiled and laughed out loud a lot. And some scenes were so hot I almost needed a cold shower.
I loved Cooper to the bones. He was so sexy and protective....hmmmm...and I have to admit, I have a special spot for cops or detectives. Sexy, amazing, sweet, hot cops. Like Cooper. He was drool worthy. And drool I did. Especially with all the juicy details in Breanne's descr

Another wonderful story by Jill Shalvis. Breanne Mooreland has had a very long string of very bad luck. Her latest being left at the altar....again! Now she is on her honeymoon, alone. Why not....it's all paid for. She is at a mountain lodge in the Sierra mountains.

Cooper Scott has just left his job as a vice cop because he was burnt out. He is in desperate need of a vacation and time to reflect on his past mistakes so as not to repeat them.

Breanne and Cooper meet up at the lodge and it is full

Jill Shalvis is a fun author...this book was cute and fun.

Breanne goes on her "honeymoon" after being left at the altar--nothing goes right--her flight is terrible, her luggage is lost, and when she finally arrives at the house she rented, someone else is in the honeymoon suite! Cooper Scott is looking to find out what to do with his life now that he quit his job. He needs some R&R and maybe a nice ski bunny...not a crazy woman with a smart mouth!

Since this is a romance novel, the story beg

While there were some elements to this book I really enjoyed, it wasn't enough in the end for me to shower it with praise. The characters were annoying as hell, especially Breanne. I would have given anything to climb into the book just to bitch-slap her. And Cooper was about as interesting as a slice of plain bread. Except at the end when he (view spoiler) and became TSTL. Yeah, now that's really attractive. v_v

I also didn't care for the overly wordy

I think I'm addicted to Jill Shalvis's books. I really love her writing and the flow of each story she created. So amazing. Here I am, have devoured one of her novels-- Get A Clue

I totally enjoyed the premise. The humour was cracking like hell. Definite hilarious I laughed out loud. The romance was awesome, cute, lovely and sweet. The chemistry between Breanne and Copper was so powerful. So powerful that the sexual tension was absolute madness--it's killing me.

I quite liked the mystery. Not re

This book was a heavy double edged sword to me, there were many moments of laugh out loud hilarity, melt your heart sweetness, and rev your engine hotness. Then there were many moments of knock your head against the wall frustration, was that really needed irritation and worst of all, the why was that even mentioned confusion.

I had questions about like why did Breanne it have to happen 3 times when once was bad enough (it actually made it a little harder for me to like her) and then why did her

And You Thought YOU Were Having a Bad Day
She was left at the alter (again), and is now on her honeymoon with no groom. She's wet, freezing cold, stuck in a strange place, caught in a storm the likes of which hasn't been seen in centuries, with no electricity (she's afraid of the dark), no luggage (got lost in transit), a naked man in her shower (okay, so that's not exactly a bad thing), and all she's got as a flashlight is a glow in the dark vibrator that was part of the honeymoon package the ex

A fun read - the heroine has had the week from hell:
* fancy wedding - but the groom doesn't show up
* rather than face the commiseration and speculation - she flies off on her prepaid honeymoon - on an airplane with screaming, odoriferous passengers
* she arrives at her Tahoe destination - but her luggage doesn't, leaving her with two scanty negligees and some makeup to face a week in the Sierras
* nobody mentioned that the Sierras were being hit by the 'storm of the century' - for which she was se

I checked this book out from the library, and it turned out to be a re-read that I forgotten until about half way through. It is a quick, and moderately entertaining read--if you like the game Clue. Very few times in a book do I absolutely hate the the heroine. I hated Breanne, the heroine, in this book. She is clueless, scared of everything, and I don't know what she did to attract the hero, but for some reason he seemed to like her. She also can't seem to take care of herself, and was selfish ...more

My reading funk continues, but I managed to stagger over the finish line of Get A Clue. And I was tempted to give it 3 stars, working on the assumption that my funny mood had robbed me of the pleasure of a Jill Shalvis romp. But by the time I got to the ending, I had to face the fact that maybe it wasn't me.

The setup is a blast and the characters were fun, but the mystery driving the plot was flimsy, the tension non-existent and the denouement too easy. I liked Cooper and Breanne but they won't

This book had aspirations to be romantic suspense or a romance with a mystery but didn't quite make it. Or actually it did have some mysteries, just not what the author intended. Mysteries #1 through #5 - Where do you find a cabin in the woods to rent that comes with a kitchen, dining room, great room, library, theater, gym, bedrooms, bedrooms for the servants, and a basement? Where do you find a cabin in the woods that comes with a butler, a cook, a maid, and a maintenance man? How much would s ...more

This is a romantic comedy with some suspense thrown in, or a romantic suspense with some comedy thrown in. Either way, this is a steamy romance with suspenseful parts (a dead body, a snow-bound lodge, mysterious staff members) and funny parts, too.

It was a good beach read, and that's just where I read it -- sitting on the front porch at Oak Island looking out over the Atlantic Ocean.

This was a truly awful book. I had to skim to satisfy my curiosity. The main female is the "to dumb to live type" that needs a man to guide her because she is too stupid to survive. So she has been left at the altar 3 times. She goes to a winter wonderland not wearing snow boots or even a coat suitable for the weather. And the only clothes available to wear are "hooker" clothes and no underwear but she does have high heels. I was truly frustrated and dumbfounded that I was actually reading this ...more
