Book Review - The Rocky Road to Romance by Janet Evanovich

Way back before there was ever a Stephanie Plum, author Janet Evanovich was known for her lively and fun romance novels - yes, Romance!

Now, these charming books are being re-released for a whole new generation of readers to enjoy!

About The Book:

Her tall, dark, and deliciously dangerous boss . . .

When the delightful, daffy Dog Lady of station WZZZ offered to take on the temporary job of traffic reporter, Steve Crow tried to think of reasons to turn Daisy Adams down. Perhaps he knew that sharing the close quarters of a car with her for hours would give the handsome program director no room to resist her quirky charms. He'd always favored low-slung sportscars and high-heeled women, but that was before he fell for a free spirit who caught crooks by accident, loved old people and pets, and had just too many jobs!
Loving Daisy turned Steve's life upside down, especially once he adopted Bob, a huge dog masquerading as a couch potato. But was Daisy finally ready to play for keeps?

I was thoroughly enchanted with this short, but cute story!  You can see glimpses of Janet Evanovich's writing magic as far as suspense and mystery goes in the intrigue that dances through this story. Her characters are full of fun, and the secondary characters are just as much of a delight to meet.  The storyline is fast-paced and full of action, and I was sorry to see it come to it's satifying ending - I wanted it to go on for a while longer!

I'll admit I haven't read any of Janet's "Stephanie Plum" books, but maybe I need to check them out now! I'm only what - 18 behind!!  Until I get around to those, I'm looking forward to future releases of Janet's romances which are planned for the future!

I received a review copy of this book from the publisher. I was not compensated for my opinion.

I have a lot of fun reading her Stephanie Plum novels. Now also being from NJ and knowing a bit about the location of the books adds a bit for me too I think.

Since there is a Stephanie Plum movie coming out, maybe I should get on the Plum bandwagon! :)
