After discovering Janet's Stephanie Plum series, I wanted to read everything by her. I bought this pre-Plum re-release in paperback. Loved it. You can definately see the Plum style in her earlier writing. I just recently bought the Kindle edition to have for my collection. My mother is on my Kindle account and I know she would enjoy reading this as well.
It's an odd story about a guy who hires a woman from NJ to be his wife. He needs her to get his family off his back and get his business going. She is a writer that is working on a book about a family member with an unsavory past. Both think this set up would be perfect business deal. Of course, they didn't count on falling in love. Yes, it's an overly used plot, but Janet makes it work. I tried to read some of her other romances, but couldn't get into them. I just loved the story, loved all the characters, and of course...loved the ending.
Although I am not happy with the downward spiral of the Plum series, I have to give credit where credit is due. This was a great book. When Janet puts effort into her writing and she is on, we get a great story. Including some of the Plum books, this is one of my favorites that I have read by Janet. When I can't stop reading because I'm so into the book, it gets 5 stars. I couldn't put this book down.
