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

One of the characters has my first and middle names, so that immediately won me over with this book. It enjoyable and I believe the last of the Full series. The only character that remained throughout the entire series was Max Holt so it was a bit frustrating not to really have follow up with the other characters. I guess we got a bit on Dee Dee, Jamie, and few more minor characters like Vera and Destiny. I had to get into the mindset of these being more individual books rather than a series and ...more

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

Shelves: brain-candy, humor
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.

#6 (and final) in the Full series

Silly, fun, and a very entertaining end to this series. Maggie Davenport had a relationship back in high school with a troubled kid who turned out to be a killer. Unfortunately he's escaped from prison and is on his way to Beaumont to find her. And she has a secret she wants to keep from him (and everyone else) about her 13-year-old daughter. Enter Zack, an FBI agent who has been assigned to protect them. Carl Lee has lots of adventures on his trip. He finds hims

Full Scoop delivers the same excitement that I remember from Full House. FBI agent Zack is a core part of this story and brings all the action together. Maggie, the female protagonist mostly worries throughout the story as to what will happen later, but her plight is riveting. Mel, her 13-year-old daughter keeps things amusing right along with Zack. I think this book wrapped up the series well. The town of Beaumont, South Carolina never fails to deliver with entertainment. I love the cast Evanov ...more

I rather enjoyed the story, although I came to a few conclusions quite a bit before the characters did. I enjoy Ms. Evanovich's books.

I listed to the audiobook, and the reader had some disappointing habits. Her 'voices' for some of the characters were downright annoying... especially the low second or third tier characters (who we only heard from a couple of times). Unfortunately, at the beginning, Queenie (who if anything is the supporting female character if this was a movie) sounded like a So

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

yet again we meet new characters. And this installment of the series it is Maggie the town doctors Chance for Love. of course her ex is an escaped killer who is after her which forces Zack into her life to protect her. I definitely will not continue reading this series if any more books come out. the book jumps around and you don't really learn much about past characters, some of the characters seem to be forgotten completely. Each book feels as though it's a spin-off of a previous series even t ...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.

Very cute story, Maggie has such a busy life trying to do things right with daughter Mel. And then her ex escapes from prison and kidnaps her daughter!
Her daughter didn't even know who her real father is until this.
Zach ends up changing his life and hopefully all of theirs too.

A laugh out loud fun read of what happens to a small town pediatrician and her daughter when strangers start arriving in town asking questions and an old boyfriend is on the run and looking for you. The crazy things that happen when your world turns upside down in a hurry.

Not my favorite. Finished because I can't let a book set unread. The characters were unreal. I guessed what would happen early. Not a good read to end the year on.

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.
