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.

Vice cop Cooper Scott just wanted a week to get his head in order. Having had his life in shambles over the past couple of months, he ju...more

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 tie...more
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...more
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.

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...more
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
Oh my...I just started reading this one and it's making me laugh so bad that I am afraid I will be losing some sleep again. So much for my trying to have an early night in...

*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...more

****SPOILER ALERT***** - I'm just sayin' - You've been warned!

I enjoy Jill Shalvis' writing style, and I was not disappointed. Breanne has been stood up at the alter (third time jilted in her short life) but decides to head up to the remote ski lodge she and her fiancee had planned on going to. When she gets there, the room - or shall I say the shower - is occupied by one hunky, oh-so-alpha male, Cooper.

May I pause and just say 'Yum'? Thank you - where was I?

Normally things like this would be s...more

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...more
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...more
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...more
Jim son of Jim (formerly PhotoJim)
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
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...more

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...more

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 rea...more
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...more
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...more
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...more

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

Recommended to Martha by: bookstore trade-in
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.
I absolutely loved this book! It was hilarious and a fun read! Connor is gorgeous and a complete honey!
The writing left me very confused, jumping from one thing to the next, didn't know what was going on

What a fun book! Breanne is stood up at the alter but decides to go on her already-paid-for honeymoon at a cabin in the mountains. Cooper is a burnt-out cop needing a week away who is double-booked into the same cabin as Breanne. A major snowstorm starts when they both arrive, killing the electricity and snowing them both in along with the 5 staff members who are supposed to take care of the cabin's guests. This is a romantic comedy with a lot of mystery, once one of the staff members turns up d...more
Breanne arrives at the gorgeous house in the woods for her honeymoon- alone, it turns out, since she was left at the altar. In this beautiful place she finds Cooper Scott, who has also been booked into this great house in a booking mix-up. In short order, the snowstorm of the century begins, the power fails, and oh yeah, there's a dead body in the basement. Did one of the staff do it? An outsider? Cooper, who has left his job because of cop burn out, tries to figure it out, while falling for Bre...more
So far I haven't read a Jill Shalvis book that I didn't like. I've liked them so much, that I'm going to go out and get every book she's written that I haven't read. What I love about her books is that there is a good story, a zany cast of characters, humor, and plenty of sexy times. It's not overly done, like in some books, but provides the perfect balance with every story.

In this book, Breanne is left at the alter- for the third time. Not letting a good honeymoon go to waste, she treks it up...more

I’ve previously read a couple of short stories by Jill Shalvis (in the two Men of Courage collections), but this was the first full-length novel. If they are all this good, I will definitely be reading a lot more!

After being left at the altar for the third time, Breanne Mooreland departs for the secluded vacation lodge high in the Sierras ready for her (not) honeymoon and some serious alone time. She wasn’t expecting the flight from San Francisco to turn into hell in the air (complete with lost...more

Thinking back on it there were quite a few things that should have tipped me off to the fact that I might not have loved Get a Clue. The protective cop is quite a tradition amongst romance authors, I suppose in some manner he is the contemporary Duke, powerful and authoritative - the jaded cop however, is an entirely different matter. I think that the jaded cop, while adding a bit more personality and dimension to what could be an overly simplistic character, has to be done carefully or you're r...more
A fun little read by Jill Shalvis, one of my fave contemp authors. A snowed in cabin, a jilted bride, one sexy naked cop, a house full of suspicious servants, and one dead body all add up to a very entertaining read.

A play on Clue, the story opens with Breanne making her way to her honeymoon cabin, without the groom. Stood up at the altar, she figures she can at least enjoy the paid for vacation. But instead of a cozy retreat, she finds herself snowed in with no power with Cooper, a very attract...more

I skimmed through this book. About a woman, Breanne who goes to her honeymoon alone after being jilted at the altar for the 3rd time. When she gets there she finds a naked man showering in her honeymoon suite and embarrassingly oogles him. He catches her and she runs off and then he follows. Then the lights go out. Cooper Scott is a cop who has left the force and is trying to figure out his life. Meanwhile there is a giant snowstorm and the electricity has gone out, and the main boss of the hote...more
