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
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..

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

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.
A usual book by Janet Evanovich - crazy heroine who gets herself into all kinds of situations.
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
I was very pleasantly surprised with the story... cute, funny, and you whip through it in a night.

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.
