Number one bestselling author Janet Evanovich teams up with award-winning author Dorien Kelly to deliver a sparkling novel of romantic suspense, small-town antics, secretive sabotage, and lots and lots of beer

Kate Appleton needs a job. Her husband has left her, she's been fired from her position as a magazine editor, and the only place she wants to go is to her parents' summer house, The Nutshell, in Keene's Harbor, Michigan. Kate's plan is to turn The Nutshell into a Bed and Breakfast. Problem is, she needs cash, and the only job she can land is less than savory.
Matt Culhane wants Kate to spy on his brewery employees. Someone has been sabotaging his company, and Kate is just new enough in town that she can insert herself into Culhane's business and snoop around for him. If Kate finds the culprit, Matt will pay her a $20,000 bonus. Needless to say, Kate is highly motivated. But several problems present themselves. Kate despises beer. No one seems to trust her. And she is falling hard for her boss.

Can these two smoke out a saboteur, save Kate's family home, and keep a killer from closing in…all while resisting their undeniable attraction to one another? Filled with humor, heart, and loveable characters, Love in a Nutshell is delicious fun.

    By Nottheonlyidiot
    I love Janet 's books but this did not read like her usual, funny self. Wish I hadn't read it and especially shouldn't have paid money for it.
  • Ok

    For an ordinary, contemporary romance it was fine, just don't expect Janet E.' s awesome humor or pace.

    All of the Evanovich books are great. It's fun to read a book that tickles your fancy and your funny bone at the same time.

    I can not believe how she does it, but every book I read of Janet's I think is never going to compare to the last great book I read of hers... But she surprises me every time! Great book!

  • A shame

    You know what you will get with an Evanovich book, and they are fun, I love them. So sad to see her name on this one, though. Really thin.. No developed plot, unexplained characters, everything predictable. Not worth the $$ or the time. C'mon Janet, you can do better!
