Then suddenly the job-stealing chicken disappears and Amy is suspected of foul play. Amy and Jake search for clues to prove her i...more
I did have a hard time with some of the stuff in this book. The leading man is Jacob Elliott. He is in the parking lot at the grocery store waiting patiently for Mrs. Moyer and her dog to back out of a parking spot so he can pull in. (He knows it's Mrs. Moyer because he is the town Vet - and he recognizes her dog.) But! Befor...more
This is a wacky, irreverent, and often laugh-out-loud funny book. It's a quick read, perfect for when you need a mood-booster. The romance between Jake and Amy is sweet, and the "mystery" plot, if it can even be called that, is highly entertaining. Very enjoyable, as long as you don't take it too seriously.
Non so se avete mai avuto quel sentimento contrastante che vi porta a voler leggere TUTTO ciò che uno scrittore ha prodotto e contemporaneamente avete un po' paura di beccare il romanzo che porterà il disamore..
Ecco, tro un po' titubante a lanciarmi sui primi lidi creati dall'autrice, sop...more
I personally listened to this specific book using my iPhone, while driving to and from Tuscaloosa. This is a fluff read. Not deep, but entertaining. This is a perfect read for a pool day, airplane flight, or as I did it as a book on tape for car ride. Wildly entertaining, with an absurd plot line I thoroughly enjoyed this book.
The story opens by introducing you to the two main characters Amy Klasse and Jake El...more
Oh, how thankful I am that it was short.
This was apparently originally published under a different name originally, and it was being reprinted; she said it was one of a set of "red-hot screwball comedies" she'd written before becoming all famous.
Jake Elliott, veternarian, falls in love at first sight when he sees Amy Klasse in all her klutzy glory in the parking lot of the grocery store. He follows her around and ends up paying for her groceries when she realizes she left her money in her work locker. The deal? She has to make him a home cooked dinner, which she does. Amy is having a bad day: she just lost her job to Rhode Island Red, a rooster that can dance. After hitting it off, Jake gives Amy a job as a receptionis...more

Amy Klasse (aka Lulu the Clown)is replaced by a dancing chicken on her children's TV show. In order to pay her bills, she takes a receptionist job for hunky veterinarian, Jake Elliott. When said chicken disappears from his office, Amy is suspected of fowl play (Ha!). Only in a romance novel can you lose your job to a chicken, get engaged to a sexy vet, lose your virginity, and solve a mystery all in 5 days. Quick and fluffy, but missing the usual humor of a Janet Evanovich book.
I wandered around the library on my lunch hour last week, rejecting my old favorites, and then this one just whimsically appeared. I remembered seeing a co-worker or two enjoying Janet Evanovich romance/mysteries, and decided to give this one a try.
Quick, quirky, comic. Just what I needed this week.
Also published books under the name Steffie Hall.
