Book Description

April 27 2010 Janet Evanovich's Full Series (Book 5)
Dear Reader,
The temperature's on "sizzle" again in Beaumont, South Carolina, where peach trees are in season and ripe for the picking. So is its newest entrepreneur, Annie Fortenberry, who has inherited her grandmother's B&B (and its eccentric handyman Erdle Thorney). According to a local psychic she also inherited a spirit from its glory days as a brothel-not the kind of publicity the Peach Tree Bed & Breakfast needs if it's hosting millionaire Max Holt's upcoming wedding! If rumors of a naughty, prank-playing ghost aren't stressful enough, a mysterious man has arrived with an eye on Annie and her master suite. Wes Bridges is all leather and denim, sporting a two-day beard, straddling a Harley, and sending the B&B's testosterone level through the roof. Annie's cool demeanor may be dropping as fast as Wes's jeans, but leave it to her missing ex-husband to dampen the passion! Turns out someone has done him in, and all evidence points to Annie! Wrapped up in a murder plot, Annie must find the killer, save her own neck, and get back to where she was-wrapped up in Wes's strong loving arms...
We guarantee that you're going to have as much fun reading Full Bloom as we had writing it! (Even if we were surprised by the ending!) And you won't want to miss the hair-raising shenanigans when Fleas, the hound dog, meets the most cantankerous, snooty, bad-tempered, twenty-two pound orange cat....
Janet and Charlotte

Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Set in Beaumont, S.C., the fifth installment in Evanovich's Full series (after 2004's Full Blast) gets off to a raucous start. When photographer Wes Bridges comes looking for a room at Annie Fortenberry's B&B, a former bordello that's supposedly haunted, Annie mistakes him for her drunken handyman and hits poor Wes on the head with her rolling pin. Hilarity ensues as Annie and her cast of eccentric boarders provide first aid to Wes in the form of a local veterinarian who specializes in livestock tranquilizers. The comedy gives way to murky mystery when the police locate the body of Annie's philandering husband, Charles, who disappeared three years earlier, and arrest Annie for his murder. The romance between Wes and Annie heats up the sheets, even as the list of suspects grows. Unfortunately, the plot flattens out, and even boarder Destiny's efforts to provide the B&B's ghost with therapy fail to rekindle the novel's earlier humor. While readers will be amused by the wacky first few chapters, the mystery never reaches the intensity of Evanovich's Stephanie Plum novels, and fans will likely be disappointed with this less than stellar entry.

From Booklist

*Starred Review* Annie Fortenberry has knocked out Wes Bridges twice already, and he still wants to stay at her bed-and-breakfast, a former house of ill repute she's inherited from her grandmother. With a psychic/medium, perpetually tipsy handyman, aging ballerina, and kleptomaniac ghost who doesn't know she's dead as long-term residents, not to mention frequent visits from a dog named Fleas, the cat who hates him, and an absentminded 90-year-old veterinarian neighbor, the Peach Tree Bed and Breakfast is in a constant state of chaos. Now, with the discovery of Annie's missing husband's body in the garden, murder and mayhem have been thrown into the equation. Despite all of this, Annie, a prime suspect in the heinous crime, still has to finish the last-minute details of a secret, elaborate celebrity wedding she's hosting at the inn. With Wes, Annie might finally have found the love of her life--unless she learns the real reason he's checked into the Peach Tree. Part of the Jamie Swift and Max Holt series, this screwball comedy will greatly please readers with its rapid-fire dialogue, roller-coaster pace, and unconventional characters. Shelley Mosley

2.0 out of 5 stars not fully bloomed April 14 2006
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
So many characters that are not not well integrated. The guy is hot but the relationship is not.
I've read other books by these girls and was hoping they would improve. I enjoy the Stephanie Plum stories, they're exciting and hot, they move at a great pace and the relationships seem to grow along side the action.
In the romances the writing is at times awkward. The rapport between the characters is choppy and and you feel the words as a vehicle to impart information. The colour and feeling of being there are lacking. The relationships are not smoothly nurtured.
The girls seem to be sailing unsatisfactorily on the tail wind of Stephanie Plum.
This book left me unsatisfied. I felt ripped off.

4.0 out of 5 stars quirky, entertaining tale that is quick paced! Sept. 16 2005
By jeanne-scott - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
In the little town of Beaumont, South Carolina things are not as "sleepy" as one would think. An extravagant and secret wedding is being carefully and lovingly planned at a local B&B. Everything seems to be going along when a boarder, Destiny reveals that there is a ghost with a secret residing in the B&B.

An unexpected boarder posing as a photographer begins to stir things up, and Annie, the owner of the B&B falls for the secretive boarder but what is he really doing in Beaumont??

Annie's missing husband also turns up under very unusual circumstances and accusations begin to fly.

What is the secret boarder investigating? What does the ghost know? What are the circumstances behind Annie's husband disappearing? Is someone in the quaint town of Beaumont capable of plotting a murder??

Throw in a cast of characters from a caretaker with a drinking problem, a friend who cares a little too deeply, the euthanasia prone veterinarian, and a scroungy looking dog named Fleas, just to highlight a few..............what you wind up with is a quirky, entertaining tale that is quick paced, funny and a lot of fun to read.

Now this is a book I could sink my teeth in to. A romance-Mystery-Comedy that I really enjoyed reading. As usual Janet Evanovich has done it again. Written something that is true brilliance. Hope to see her on the top of the New York Times bestsellers soon!

5.0 out of 5 stars strong comedic romantic mystery April 5 2005
By Harriet Klausner - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
In Beaumont, South Carolina, Annie Fortenberry is trying to prepare her historical mansion turned B&B into a wedding reception for her best friend Jamie Swift and millionaire Max Holt. Her handyman Erdle Torney who came with the place she inherited from her grandmother has failed to do his job so she loses her temper and goes after him with a rolling pin. Visitor Wes Bridges gets in the way and is knocked out.

A gardener borrowed from her neighbor finds human skeletal remains in an isolated area where foliage has grown. The victim is Annie's spouse Charles who allegedly ran away several years ago. In fact, Wes is a private investigator working for Charles' mother to prove that Annie lost her temper and harmed her son. As the police suspect Annie as the killer, Wes believes she is innocent, but wonders if that is because he really likes her when she is not holding a rolling pin.

This amusing romantic who-done-it has the audience laughing from the moment Wes finds out how insane the Peach B&B is that is after he awakens from a bonking and swallowing a horse tranquilizer given by a retired vet. The story line gets even zanier, but never loses focus on the murder investigation handled by the cops and Wes separately. FULL BLOOM is a strong comedic romantic mystery that readers will want more plums from Janet Evanovich and Charlotte Hughes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Laugh Out Loud Funny Jan. 27 2007
By No Shopper - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
If you want a hard core, hard boiled murder mystery this is not the book for you. If you want a light-hearted, book that will cause you to laugh out loud in place, read this book as well as others in this series. I was not impressed with the first books, but they did improve as they proceeded. Branching out into other characters that interact and populate Jamie/Max's town of Beaumont has improved the books greatly. The wedding of the century as well.

1.0 out of 5 stars Sagging Bloom June 6 2005
By Terry A. Benedict-Devine - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The authors kept my interest with the frolicking escapades of Annie, Wes, Destiny, Doc, and company, in the anticipation of a somewhat thought-out, acceptable conclusion. Not so. At the climax of the story, when the reader would expect the characters to "grow up" and the story to come together, it just goes from insane to ridiculous. Extremely disappointing. Would not recommend this book at all. It is outrageous slapstick, without the humor.
