No. 1 New York Times‘ bestselling author, Janet Evanovich, teams up with Dorien Kelly, a native of Michigan, for a refreshingly lighthearted comedy, full of romance and spunk.
Of course, as anyone who is familiar with Janet Evanovich’s style, there is a mystery to be solved. The two leading characters are both head strong and ambitious to a fault. What I found most intriguing about the book is that the storyline is set between Keene’s Harbor, on the Lake Michigan shoreline, and Traverse City.
The quirky Kate Appleton comes from a prestigious and highly educated family. She finds herself to be somewhat of a black sheep when she decides to take on a tremendous project, without the best laid plans. Nothing in her education could have prepared her for what she was about to embark.
Matt Culhane is a “bad boy gone good,” as he decided after his mischievous adolescent years that he was going to make a dream of his come true. After many years of hard work, sweat equity and a strong business sense, Matt became one of Keene’s Harbor’s most profitable businessmen with the success of his Depot Brewing Company. Kate soon realized that the fate of her dreams of turning her parent’s summer house into a bed and breakfast lie solely on the one and only handsome and intriguing Matt Culhane. Kate decides to help Matt find out who is trying to sabotage his brewing company in exchange for his help in her dilemma with her bed and breakfast project, The Nutshell.
This book was quite entertaining and was a quick and easy read. Whether you want to read over the weekend, on a trip or are simply looking for something entertaining, suspenseful and romantic, then this book is for you.
