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
When Amy Klasse loses her TV job to a dancing chicken, handsome veterinarian Jake Elliott rescues her with an offer to be his receptionist. Jake just can't resist a damsel in distress, and Amy certainly doesn't mind Jake's charming sincerity.
Then suddenly the job-stealing chicken disappears and Amy is suspected of foul play. Amy and Jake search for clues to prove her innocence. But will Jake be able to prove to Amy that love, too, is a mystery worth solving?
**About the Author
Amy Klasse is Lulu the Clown on a local TV station and has just lost her job to a dancing chicken (and it's "hot" trainer). The rooster can cluck "The Star-Spangled Banner" and count with its toes. Hopping mad, Amy stops at a grocery store on her way home where Jake Elliott, a veterin ...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.
But still, despite the thin and ridiculous plot, props to Janet Evanovich for making me at least giggle to the silliness of it all. This is the reason why I'm rating it three stars instead of a two st ...more
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

The chicken ends up missing and when it came to the end of the book and I found out what happen to the chicken I didn't see that coming so that part of the ending was real good. I would diffidently recommend this book to people to read if you would like to read a mystery comedy love book.

This is another of early Janet Evanovich romances published under the name Steffie Hall. These books are always funny and fluffy--the perfect "inbetween" kind of book when you don't know what to grab next from Mt. TBR.
Jacob Elliott flipped his left-turn signal on and patiently waited for Mrs. Moyer to pull out of her parking space. He knew it was Mrs. Moyer because her dog, Harold, was frantically clawing at the back window of her station wagon.
Bonus: I listened to this on audio download. CJ Critt was the narrator, my favorite.
The last time I reviewed one of her books I said she always delivers an
enjoyable read, but this book utterly fails at her usual loopy brand of mystery fun. The plot, what there is of it is juvenile and the character development consists of the leads constantly thinking how cute, sexy, adorable, etc, etc, etc the other one is.
Word of advice JE, stick to Stephanie.
A usual book by Janet Evanovich - crazy heroine who gets herself into all kinds of situations.
I was very pleasantly surprised with the story... cute, funny, and you whip through it in a night.
