A ferry tale come true!

But did they have to send him disguised as a nerd to a wacko island community off the coast of Maine? What’s a celebrity like him to do? Get out, of course. But then why then did he so oddly free, now that he’d e

I dislike stupidity in heros and Jaro is the first hero I found TSTL. His characteristics just don't add up. A 31yo with an MBA, former VP of [daddy's] hotel empire turned firefighter, turned bank robbery hero. Yet, I'm supposed to believe this person would throw a temper tantrum with the law enforcement who have him placed in WitSec. Because heaven forbid that you would want to disguise yourself when someone is trying to kill you and you've become the handsome, heroic face of America. To be ...more

4.5 stars!

Poor Jaro plays hero, taking down a bank robber and winds up in the Witness Protection Program. He finds himself wearing glasses that resemble Coke bottles and a fake mustache and beard to disquish his appearance. If that isn't bad enough, the police send his newly nerdy self to a little island in Maine where everyone seems to be crazy. Everyone, that is, except for their mayor--his new boss.

Roslyn is cursed! Every man she's ever been involved with ends up behind bars. When her new d

Check your brain at the door, light romance. Take a bored high society type working as a NY fireman for excitement who is under a death threat because he saw the face of a bank robber when he jumped him thus foiling the robbery. Send him to hide out in Maine on an island populated by folks who look at life from a different angle. Add in a smart young lady mayor and let the fun begin. Jaro is sent incognito to work for the mayor of Dagger Township. He looks like a dweeb which is a good thing ...more

Actually I suppose I'd give it two and a half stars. However, there was just so much unbelievable in this book. First, there was very little mention of his disguise, except the occassional mention of his "pocket protector", as if that would cover it completely. No understanding of why the mayor was attracted to him except that he had an atractive body. And of course, to use the same, unusual name as part of his disguise as was his real name-that made no sense. The book was just too unbelievable, ...more

This was an odd read more so for the odd characters who weren't what hey seemed. Not sure what to say without repeating the blurb or giving a way to much. If the blurb sounds interesting to you or peaks your curiosity then give this one a try I think you'll be glad you did.

A very fun book to read. Bewteen Jaro's arrogant, teasing attitude and crazy-fun islanders, Gimme Back My Clothes will have you grinning and laughing through the whole story.

It is a strange romance/action book. Very short. Funny though in some parts.
