Product Description


"…as the romance peaks and Matt and Kate share adventures, King hits her stride, ably handling the snappy dialogue between Matt and Kate in a way that distinguishes both characters and is absolutely fun to listen to." - Publishers Weekly

"Destined to make your next road trip a blast." - Shoals

From the Back Cover


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.


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.


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

By Pat the cat TOP 1000 REVIEWER on Feb. 18 2014
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I'm a big fan of Evanovich's detective series - I've read it all and I just love the wit of Stephanie Plum and the crazy people that make up her world. A few years ago, I tried the "Plum spooky" series but didn't like it -- too over the top, too sexual. But, after several "serious" books and thrillers, I needed a fix of carefree, fun, witty, amusing story-telling. Well, I was disappointed. The premise is cute but the plot never really leaves the ground. It's mostly about the adolescent thoughts of a cute girl and a hot guy who are attracted to one another but trying to play it cool like in high school. Such silly preoccupation doesn't warrant hard cover treatment, in my opinion. The writing is hip but there isn't much substance and few, if any, funny situations. Half the book is wasted on immature sexual innuendos. The intrigue is tepid and lots of pages are spent on irrelevant scenes. The identity of the villains responsible for the sabotage and their reasons for doing so are beyond credible. It's a big, big snooze... I find it sad to see that Evanovich is wasting her talent on such drivel...I give it 2 stars out of five (bad).

I have read all of Janet Evanovich's books and this one was no disappointment. I bought it in the grocery store and lent it to my sister and then ended up buying it for my tablet to read since I hadn't gotten the book back yet.

I hesitated to give this book one star. I am a huge fan of Janet Evanovich and anxiously await her newest novel. I forced myself to read this book; passed it on to two friends and we all agree that it was a waste of money . Am wondering if she really co-wrote this --certainly no sign of Janet's wonderful writing in this book.

As usual these Evanovich collaborations have fascinating characters, fast story changes, and a lot of really funny situations, ending happily.

Cute - But no Laugh Out Loud here Jan. 9 2012
By J Evans - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I love the Stephanie Plum series and most of the other Janet Evanovich books. This one was VERY light reading and cute. But one of the absolute "have to have this book" reasons for reading Janet Evanovich books is it truly makes me laugh out loud. There is none of that in this book. A few funny lines from a child character but other than that it was bland. If one just wants something light to read it is nice - but don't expect the "belly rolling" laughter brought on by the Stephanie Plum series. I, personally, thought it was way over priced for what I got.

Evanovich? Jan. 12 2012
By Rebekah Plum - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I have been a big fan of Janet Evanovich for many years but I do not see her style of writing in this book. There were very few "funny" moments and I didn't find myself caring about any of the characters. It is an ok story but predictable.

4.5 Evanovich/Kelly Make a Great Team Jan. 3 2012
By Dianne E. Socci-Tetro - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is a sweet, light hearted and very wholesome romance/mystery and a very quick read.

Kate has just been fired from a bartending job, something she had to take to earn some money while she is trying to fix up her parents old B&B on Lake Michigan. She stomps off to confront the person she thinks s responsible for her job loss and meets Matt Culhane, who just happens to hold the mortgage that Kate is trying so hard to pay back Of course that mortgage is so far past due that Matt is ready to foreclose.

But Matt has been having some troubles of his own and decides that Kate would be the perfect person to `spy' for him. There has been a rash of vandalism at his micro-brewery/restaurant..

As the vandalism escalates Matt decides that Kate is the one for him, and despite her reticence with men since her very nasty divorce she starts having feelings for Matt too. Can she get beyond the fact that he is holding her mortgage and wants to turn her property into a restaurant?

This novel has an interesting story line and a mystery that had me going trying to figure it out. The writing team of Evanovich and Kelly threw in a very plausible red herring and I bit like a hungry grouper! The characters are very likeable, to the point that I would love to be friends with them. The writing is nice and tight, the story holds ones interest and even the secondary characters are enjoyable.

I truly liked this book a lot, and I hope that these two collaborate again in the future.

So pedestrian, surprised Evanovich gave her name to this Jan. 7 2012
By vlmsan - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This is a very "average" mystery and romance combined. You pretty much know where it's going. Only mildly amusing,not laugh out loud like the Stephanie Plum books. My husband told me he'd seen it at Sam's Club, so I would vett it for him since he loves the Plum books, but I'm giving this to Goodwill instead of to him. Eighteen bucks down the drain...

Boring! So sad.... Jan. 28 2012
By F. Morris Rosman - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Dear Ms. Evanovich:
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.
