When the delightful, daffy Dog Lady of station WZZZ offered to take on the temporary job of traffic reporter, Steve Crow tried to think of reasons to turn Daisy Adams down. Perhaps he knew that sharing the close quarters of a car with her for hours would give the handsome program director no room to resist her quirky charms. He’d always favored low-slung sports cars and high-heeled women, but that was before he fell for a free spirit who caught crooks by accident, loved old people and pets, and had just too many jobs.

Loving Daisy turned Steve’s life upside down, especially once he adopted Bob, a couch potato masquerading as a huge dog. But was Daisy finally ready to play for keeps?

    " I did enjoy this funny fast paced story with my favorite plot of male pursuing female, although I did roll my eyes a couple times. Over-worked Daisy studying for dissertation learns of better paying job opening as traffic reporter and convinces program director Steve to hire her. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kathryn Moore | 2/16/2014

    " I hate to rate this one too low because I just don't enjoy this kind of romance books. However, if you are into romance books, you would probably like it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kathryn | 2/15/2014

    " One of Evanovich's first novels. Not one of her best. Okay. It's a predictable romance. The old lady is the germ of the idea for Stephanie Plum's grandmother in her later series, though. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dawn Osborne | 2/4/2014

    " A light reading quirky book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brandy *Ahviel* | 1/28/2014

    " This was so funny, I think I should have known better to listen to this book while at work. Granted there were some parts that I felt dragged on, but for the most part I was laughing so hard I wanted to cry "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeannette | 1/22/2014

    " Started this book at 12:45am becasue I couldn't sleep. I was laughin by toosh off within minuets. It was hilarious, and a good clean romance. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Trudy | 1/22/2014

    " Light-hearted bit of fluff...some humorous characters...not much to this one. "

    " I laughed all the way through it "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nancy | 12/30/2013

    " This was a cute, quick read in typical Evanovich style. I loved the old lady who was the guard - she reminds me of Grandma Mazur in the Stephanie Plum novels. Evanovich has a talent for creating great and funny old-lady characters in the midst of good plots. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Samantha Mitri | 12/23/2013

    " This book was a very quick read, but funny and cute. I really enjoyed it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Barbara | 12/18/2013

    " Janet Evanovich is an easy read and alway light and enjoyable. Her characters are colorful and always interesting. If you want some fun, read any of her books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Arica | 12/16/2013

    " Cute... like all of Janet's books. However Daisy is probably my least favorite female main charactor. Dog named Bob... always a big hit for me. And "Aunt Ellsie" is a hoot! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Erica | 12/14/2013

    " This book is a typical early version Janet Evanovich. If you like her Plum series, you'll enjoy these. However, since they are books from before the Plum series, they are a little flat. This one needed a little bit more meat around it, but it was good for a day or two at the beach. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kellie | 12/10/2013

    " A fluff read to hold me over until I decided what I really wanted to read. Nothing special. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kristen | 12/10/2013

    " Another very funny Janet Evanovich book. I love reading all her stand alone books. I'm trying to read them all before I start on her series' books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer | 10/30/2013

    " Screwball romantic comedy. Not the best Evanovich book I have read by a long shot, but it is one of her earlier works and it was breezy and fun. Great for the bathtub or with a glass of wine while curled up on the couch after a shit week. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sue | 10/30/2013

    " One of the first of her romances that a read through a robin on bookcrossing.com "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rita Hughes | 4/22/2013

    " Listened to this one on tape. I especially like CJ Critt the reader and her cute New Jersey accent. This is a little different from the bounty hunter tales, but just as entertaining. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Renee Jennings | 1/8/2013

    " It was a typical Evanovich book. Funny but mindless. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Helen | 7/2/2012

    " I thoroughly enjoyed this book. This is one of the early Evanovich romances, and it has a dog named Bob and an old lady with a big gun, Elsie, who is the prototype for Grandma Mazur only a bit younger and more able. It made me laugh and smile and share some of the witty dialogue with my husband. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Danielle | 1/4/2011

    " OMG this is terrible. Clearly the idea of Stephanie Plum and her crazy sidekick and Bob the dog came from this piece of crap. Avoid at all costs! "

    " I could easily relate to Daisy the overachieving min character of this story. I also loved the rest of the gang as usual! Janet Evanovich writes a story that always funny and entertaining. She may not win a Pulitzer but she touches people and makes life a little more humorous! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brenda | 10/4/2010
