From the Back Cover
“CLASSIC ROMANCE…WITH AN EDGE OF MYSTERY…
sure to appeal to fans of both.”—Kirkus Reviews
The #1 bestselling Janet Evanovich teams up with award-winning author Dorien Kelly to deliver a sparkling novel of romantic suspense, small-town antics, secretive sabotage, and lots and lots of beer.
WHEN TROUBLE IS BREWING…
Kate Appleton needs a job. Her husband has left her, she’s been fired as a magazine editor, and she’s got nothing left but the Nutshell—her parents’ summer house in Keene’s Harbor, Michigan. Kate hopes to turn the Nutshell into a bed-and-breakfast. Problem is, she needs cash, and the only job she can find involves beer and espionage.
…EAT, DRINK, AND BE WARY!
Matt Culhane wants Kate to spy on his brewery employees. Someone has been sabotaging his company, and if Kate finds the culprit, Matt will pay her a $20,000 bonus. Unfortunately, Kate despises beer, her co-workers don’t trust her—and she’s falling hard for her boss. Can these two smoke out a saboteur, save Kate’s B&B, and keep a killer from closing in…all while resisting their undeniable attraction to one another?
“Evanovich and Kelly skillfully combine comedy with romance and suspense
to make a story sure to please the reader.”—Booklist

I have been reading your books for years and years, even before Stephanie came on the scene. But this one....well.....yuck.
Boring and I don't care one bit about the characters.
So I read about half and then gave it away to the LIbrary booksale.
-Kate and Stephanie:
-Both recently divorced from a bad marriage to a weaselly man named Richard (Dick and/or Dickie).
-Both have been fired from jobs they like.
-Both are at a cross roads in their lives and are trying to hide it from their family.
-Both keep nothing in their refrigerators.
-Both have parents who think this is still 1960 and the same morals apply.
-Both have red hot love interests who often go by their last names (Morelli and Cullhane).
-Both love interests had "active" love lives when they were younger and were considered the town's Romeo.
-Both have lived platonically with their love interests due to a bad guy trying to hurt them.
-Both have been "saved" from a dangerous situation by their love interest.
-Both male love interests have dogs with cute people names and great personalities (Bob and Chuck).
-Both are able to solve mysteries for money/catch bad guys with no real skill sets other than plucky personalities.
I could go on and on... Clearly Janet's contribution to this story was her tried and true character outline and choice of the book's font.
It's not that there is anything wrong with this book; it's just that it's nothing new for Evanovich fans or the genre in whole.
