Number one bestselling author 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 from her position as a magazine editor, and the only place she wants to go is to her parents' summer house, The Nutshell, in Keene's Harbor, Michigan. Kate's plan is to turn The Nutshell into a Bed and Breakfast. Problem is, she needs cash, and the only job she can land is less than savory.
Matt Culhane wants Kate to spy on his brewery employees. Someone has been sabotaging his company, and Kate is just new enough in town that she can insert herself into Culhane's business and snoop around for him. If Kate finds the culprit, Matt will pay her a $20,000 bonus. Needless to say, Kate is highly motivated. But several problems present themselves. Kate despises beer. No one seems to trust her. And she is falling hard for her boss.

Can these two smoke out a saboteur, save Kate's family home, and keep a killer from closing in…all while resisting their undeniable attraction to one another? Filled with humor, heart, and loveable characters, Love in a Nutshell is delicious fun.

    " Pretty run of the mill romance, but set on the Lake Michigan shoreline, which I call home. Nnote to authors: In Michigan, sweet fizzy beverages are called POP. Nothing else, ever. Please fix this for authenticity. "

    " awsome ass book "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mandie Dillard | 1/21/2014

    " Eh. Not her best. Too cliche. Never really cared about the characters. Never felt any depth. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennie | 1/20/2014

    " I adore most of Evanovich's other works, be they Stephanie Plum novels or stand-alones or in her other series. They always make me laugh. This book...did not. It was a romance novel, except there really wasn't that much romance in it. It was a mystery...except there wasn't much of a mystery. I liked Stella and I did like Kate and Matt, but all I was left with at the end was a "...okay, that was sort of cute" and nothing more. And since I can still think about moments in other books she's written -- books I read years ago (exploding taxidermy, anyone?), this book was a disappointment. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Taryn Clegg | 1/13/2014

    " Probably one of Evanovich's better books. Not too outlandish. "

    " Cute mystery-romance collaboration. It did get annoying at times though for the POV to change during a scene, and the ending did wrap up a wee bit quickly. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Angela | 12/2/2013

    " This was not Janet's best work. It is cute but real fluff. It could have had a little more romance. A great beach read and I am glad I got it from the library. I would have been angry had I paid full price for this book. "

    " A little slow in starting but an enjoyable story. Kate moves to her parents lake cottage to open a bed and breakfast and recover from a divorce. The b&b needs more in repairs than she imagined. She gets a job at a brew pub and the story evolves from there. "

    " Another wonderfully human and uplifting romance. My only complaint is that Janet Evanovich just has not written enough of them. After I read the first 2 in her by the number series, she became my favorite author. "

    " This was not a book I would have read on my own but it was part of the Select Editions from Readers Digest. I enjoyed the book as it told the story of a young divorced women trying to find her place in a small town while rebuilding her life. I learned a lot about beer making (LOL). "
