This is silly, fun and a quick read. Not a love story,(at least not in my opinion) and not a mystery. Hmmmm. Not sure what to call it except funny.

To be fair, at first I was unaware this is a series of books (Full House, Full Tilt, Full Speed, et al.). While some authors do a good job with series books so that you feel as though each book can stand alone, not so much with this one. There were a couple of times when I thought, "Wait. Who is that?" and had to realize it was a character from a prev
Okay, let's me real here: this book is 100% ridiculous and 100% implausible. I mean, this entire series has been ridiculous (in a fun way) and implausible, but I think this one takes the cake. Let's bullet point things, shall we?
- A super bad dude escapes from prison. The FBI sends the stepson of the guy the super bad dude killed to protect the super bad dude's doctor ex-girlfriend, who just so happens to be the mother of super bad dude's kid.
- FBI Guy and Doctor Ex-Girlfriend fall in love. IN

So far it's good! With all the dialogue and action it keeps it really fun and interesting to read. It's a "page turner". However, there are a lot of characters and it's hard to keep track of who's who. In addition, there are "cuts" in the book or pauses that are confusing to switch from.

I really enjoy this book. The plot keeps it so entertaining and makes you really want to keep reading. The "cuts" are no longer confusing and the characters all make sense, and there are a lot of them. The chara

Read these books out of order, but they stand on their own pretty well.

The characters are fun to read about; they fit some stereotypes with a few gentle tweaks to keep them interesting. The plot twists in this one were more convincing that in Full Speed (the other one I read this weekend), and I felt that the banter was more involved and more interesting.

If you know a single mom who is a pediatrician addicted to chocolate, I think you'll get a kick out of the main heroine. If you're in awe of sp

As usual books by Janet Evanovich are full fun with a little mystery and romance thrown in for good measure. I enjoyed the story of Maggie and her friends in Beaumont, South Carolina. The romantic interest happens to be an FBI agent guarding Maggie and her daughter, Mel. At first, I thought there were too many characters to develop their personalities in one little book, but I was mistaken. Ms. E. and her co-author, Charlotte Hughes, did a great job and I came to like everyone (well, almost ever ...more

Full Scoop was one of the more humorous books in the Co-Authored Romance Novels – Charlotte Hughes with Janet Evanovich in southern Beaumont, SC. Some of the same funny characters – Destiny, Max and Jamie Holt, Vera and local pediatrician Maggie Davenport and her teenage daughter. Maggie’s reckless past and ex-boyfriend who gets out of jail to claim what is his causes some major issues and yummy FBI Zack Madden comes to the rescue! As always Lorelei King does a bang up job with the performance o ...more

Listened to this one on the way to the beach. Typical Janet Evanovich brain candy. I do enjoy how Evanovich can write a feel-good story even though the plot deals with an escape convict on the hunt for the main character and stowed money. The characters ring very true to the typical Stephanie Plum characters, but for a brain-candy book, that is a good thing. Nicely read. Closer to a 3.5. If you like the Plum books, you'll like this one too.

This was a really cute chick lit fluff book. It was fun and a fast read. Funny & entertaining.

Local small town doctor, Maggie, and her 13 year old daughter are being protected from an ex-boyfriend who just escaped from prison, by a cute FBI guy. Throw in some funny girlfriends, farm animals and a fast moving storyline and you have a fun read.

Now I am more than happy to announce to the world that I L-O-V-E love the Stephanie Plum series. I don't care if she never chooses and the whole Ranger/Morelli thing goes on until we're all in nursing homes! No problemo! But this book just left me cold. I didn't laugh, I didn't connect with the characters and I was really disappointed. So theres not much else to say really...

Well, I finally made it through. This one was actually a little better than it's predecessor, but none of the books in this series are as good as Stephanie Plum. If you're looking for something good, read those, not these.

A quick easy romantic suspense. The local doctor, Maggie Davenport, has a good life practicing medicine and raising her teenage daughter until her past catches up with her. When an escaped convict comes after her, a gorgeous FBI agent shows up to protect her. Let the love begin.

A good finish to the "full" series by Janet - although I did miss the Jamie/Max story line as they started out.

An easy, funny read!

Sadly not up to JE's usual standard. The suspense was good but the quirky old lay with the gun is getting old. She has one in every one of her books.

Just finished reading Full Scoop & then read some of the reviews. Several reviewers wished each book in the series contained the same main characters. I liked the fact that the previous books characters had appearances so we could see how they were connected but had new lead players. Falling in love in 2 days is hard to believe but 2 weeks doesn't become any more believable as in the earlier books. These are light, easy reading stories. If you're looking for more background & details you ...more

Another in the Beaumont series. When Maggie was young she had an affair with a man who turned out to be a murderer. He got caught and sent to jail. He's escaped and he's back to get Maggie. The feds send in Zack to protect her and her daughter. Sparks fly.

Was really getting into this book and then set it aside for a few days. Once I came back to it the story was still good but not as great near the end.
I enjoyed the writing, pace and conclusion of the story. All the characters were interesting and most provided to the outcome of the story.

Funny, romantic and somewhat suspenseful. An enjoyable read.

I like the Full Series because it is fun and light-hearted but not too cheesy or cutesy. This book definitely didn't disappoint me.

Love Evanovich! This Swift - Holt story revolves around Dr Maggie Davenport, her daughter, Mel and FBI Agent Zack Madden. Not as many laughs as the Stephanie Plum series but still a very good story.

Janet Evanovich is so funny. You can't go wrong with any of her books. She keeps you on a ride of fast paced reading, wonderful story lines, and lots of jokes.

The latest in the Full series takes us back to Beaumont, South Carolina, into the office of Dr. Maggie Davenport, pediatrician. Maggie has a 13-year-old daughter, Mel, the result of an ill-fated relationship with convict Carol Lee Stanton. Shortly after she broke it off with Carl Lee, he robbed an armored car and killed an FBI agent, sending him to prison. When he escapes, the FBI is sure he’ll head for Beaumont, where they believe he stashed his loot, and where he can exact revenge on his ex-gi ...more
This book is the last of the Max Holt series, however it reads more like a spin-off from that series with a guest appearance of Max Holt and Jamie Swift.

I like the major plot line of this story. Maggie, a single mom and pediatrician, in Beaumont SC is placed under FBI protection after her Psycho EX breaks out of prison. Carl Lee was sentenced to life in prison after robbing a armored truck and killing a fed. Later on we discover he actually tortured Maggie when she refused to leave with him. (SI

Dr. Maggie Davenport learns that a mistake she made in her past is about to catch up with her. Old boyfriend turned thief and murderer Carl Lee Stanton has escaped from prison and appears to be deadheaded over to Beaumont, S.C. to pay her a visit. Rumor has it the $250K he stole before he was caught is hidden somewhere in town.

Maggie's 13-year-old daughter Mel is unaware of her mother's muddied past, and truthfully unaware of her own past as well. Maggie is sure of one thing - Carl Lee has no bu
