    " Cute but I didn't enjoy it as much as her other romances. It took a long time to like Stephanie, the bungling idiot. Though I did immediately like Ivan. All of a sudden the house that Ivan sold Stephanie was falling apart and had ghosts. I knew something was up but I surely didn't figure it out. The surprise was kind of far-fetched but humorous anyway. "

    " I listened to this on audiobook. I was thrilled that I finally listened to a Janet Evanovich book that didn't have that annoying Elsie Hawkins character. I think that made me like it more... "

    " This was, hands-down, the stupidest book I've ever read. I'm shocked and flabbergasted that people are giving it good enough reviews for it to average 3.5 stars. "

    " 2.5 stars ..So far my least favorite Evanovich book. Didnt like that the main character's name was stephanie and that she was a 29 year old hot virgin who ends up giving it up after knowing some guy a few days. It was an easy light read and mildly entertaining. I finished it in a few days, but definitely not Evanovich's best work. "

    " An early Evanovich romance - this time set on a boat where the heroine takes a job as a cook. It is love at first sight with the ships captain with the romance continuing even after the cruise is done. No surprises here, but no problems either. A good way to kill a couple hours. "

    " Save your time. It was just okay. Evanovich didn't blossom till the plum series. This was a waste of time. I read it after the plum. Weird plot line. very disconnected. The part on the boat, then the dead bodies in the bnb. Just not very cohesive "
