Before there was Stephanie Plum…

When Amy Klasse loses her television job to a dancing chicken, handsome veterinarian Jake Elliott rescues her with an offer to be his receptionist. Jake just can’t resist a damsel in distress, and Amy certainly doesn’t mind Jake’s charming sincerity.

Then the job-stealing chicken suddenly disappears and Amy is suspected of foul play. Amy and Jake search for clues to prove her innocence, but will Jake be able to show Amy that love, too, is a mystery worth solving?

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amity | 1/29/2014

    " I liked this book! I love Janet Evanovich! I love the comedy in her books. I definitely laughed out loud! The love story was fun, and it was a quick fun read! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Issa | 1/27/2014

    " I just wasn't it to this story. I LOVE the Plum books but this story was not up to par with them. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Stacey | 1/18/2014

    " Maybe 2.5 I can't seem to get Stephanie Plum out of my head. There are so many similarities that I couldn't help thinking about the characters in SP. It's entertaining for a quick read, you know, to clear your head after something heavy. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sam Castleberry | 1/14/2014

    " Again Janet Evanovich didn't displease me! Her romance comedies are so wonderful! I absolutely love them. This book is about a clown who looses her job to a chicken. When the chicken ends up missing, the clown is blamed. Another round about way to help the characters fall in love! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Holly | 1/13/2014

    " great book. i haven't ever read a Janet Evanovich book that i didn't like!!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amanda | 12/31/2013

    " Some laugh out loud funny parts. Overall there was a lot missing though. However, my love of Janet Evanovich allows me to overlook the bad and simply enjoy he very very good. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Colleen | 12/26/2013

    " Fun, very light read. Reminds me of a Meg Ryan movie! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mandy Dake | 12/22/2013

    " Not my favorite of her first novels. Still a quick, cute read. I really liked Manhunt and The Grand Finale. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jen | 12/17/2013

    " I like Janet Evanovich, but not this one. The plot was weak and not believable enough to be good, or unbelievable enough to be funny. I'm glad she found Stephanie Plum. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dawn ♥ romance | 12/9/2013

    " Cute little book with plenty of humor and action that moved right along. Veterinarian Jake is attracted to news reporter Amy who just lost her job because she was replaced by a chicken. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gustavo Berber | 12/8/2013

    " I like it, but befote reading this I read around 15 of the Stephnie Plum series, that are a lot better than this one. Janet Evanovich really made a lot of progress when comparing with this early work. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ashley♥Alexis | 12/1/2013

    " I liked the story it was cute. Im not sure if it was the writing style or the book font but It reminded me of those thin old school silhouette books. I found the book to be overly simplistic so it wasn't really my cup of tea but i'd read it if i was just looking for an hour of nonsense reading. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jespera | 11/30/2013

    " This was a light, silly but fun romance. I was amused that it has a mystery as well. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joan | 5/27/2013

    " One of Janet Evanovich's first books. I think it was written under a different name when first published. Love story/mystery. Easy fun read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Cheri | 2/16/2013

    " Love Evanovich for a fun read. This was lame. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Becky | 6/8/2012

    " I really liked the story it was pretty funny, but it was turning into too much of a harlequin romance for me! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Libbeth | 12/7/2011

    " A light read, a bit of romance a bit of mystery and the sex happens off page - like a nice old fashioned romance. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mollie *scoutrmom* | 11/18/2011

    " This was a very cute and silly story with a madcap plot and no redeeming features. Great for a laugh and little else. Shallow characters, random hilarity. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Incandragon | 9/5/2011

    Lulu the clown vs. a chicken. Falls for a veterinarian. "

    " This is a funny book. The main lady is a crack up. She does or says some really dumb or funny stuff. It stops just short of being smutty (just barely though). "

    " This reminds me of the chain stories that you would tell around a campfire, with one person starting and another chimes in as you go aroundthe fire. I forced myself through it, but was very dissatisfied with it. It was very elementary and had no depth to it. Would not recommend. "
