Louisa Brannigan's neighbor is a handsome hell-raiser—and he's driving Louisa crazy. He makes terrible coffee, steals her newspaper, and listens through her walls. But when she's fired from her government job, Louisa is persuaded to join his undercover investigation. Sneaking around in the shadows is more fun than she ever imagined, especially when the getaway car is a Porsche.
Pete Streeter never figured on finding such an attractive partner in crime. Louisa is all he ever wanted in a woman, and more. But once he's taught her to enjoy living on the edge, will she finally feel safe in his love?
I have read quite a few of these rereleased romances from Janet Evanovich over the last couple of years. Some have worked for me but others have not. Luckily for me, this was the perfect read for a Saturday night spent at home by myself - quick, amusing, entertaining, and oh, did I mention quick?
The plot makes very little sense at all, for example the pig on the cover is relevant to the story but it doesn't really matter. Unlike a couple of her other books you really felt the connection, the chemistry, between Pete and Louisa. The suspense sub plot, if you can call it that, was wrapped up far too easily and kind of off stage from the pages of the book, the main characters fell in love too quickly, but I think that is inevitable given that the author only has just over 200 pages to have the characters meet, bond and live happily ever after.
I will definitely be borrowing the last couple of rereleases that I haven't read yet.
