About the Author

Bestselling author Janet Evanovich is the winner of the New Jersey Romance Writers Golden Leaf Award and multiple Romantic Times awards, including Lifetime Achievement. She is also a long-standing member of RWA.

From AudioFile

C.J. Critt's wacky characterizations of Louisa Brannigan, press secretary to Senator Nolan Bishop, and her certifiable neighbor, Pete Streeter, are filled with laugh-out-loud humor. When Pete, a Hollywood screenwriter who is researching crooked politicians, accidentally gets Louisa fired, she joins his investigative team and the fun and games begin. Critt manipulates screeching vocal tones when Louisa finds Pete in his birthday suit in her kitchen. He steals her morning paper, parks in her spot and keeps her up all night with incessant telephone calls. Prolonged sexual scenes intended to be comic aren't humorous, but an alluring sexual tension is well done. Otherwise, Critt delivers a beguiling comedy full of fluff and fun.

Customer Reviews

This book was fun to read.
kurlysue
Fun, light-hearted read....follows the usual zany plot sequence and humorous dialogue of all Evanovich's screw-ball story lines.

And, really, this book was just a bit boring.

Louisa Brannigan, Washington D.C. press secretary to Senator Nolan Bishop, becomes involved with her upstairs neighbor, handsome hunky Pete Streeter, as they set out to solve the mystery of a disappearing pig. Yes, a disappearing pig! In this 1992 forerunner to Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series, it is possible to recognize the author's outrageous humor, and even glimpse the prototype for some of her later characters. This is a short entertaining read, one that you should be able to finish on a long flight or a trip to the hairdresser. It's fun fluff!

Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
This a reprint of an early Janet Evanovich romance originally published in 1992.

Louisa Brannigan is living in a duplex, the man who shares the other half is about as inconsiderate as you can get. He parks in her spot, steals her paper and gets calls all night long.

Pete Streeter is a Hollywood screenwriter who is following/researching some crooked political officials and their dealings for his next screenplay. When his investigation inadvertently gets Louisa fired from her political job, the two team up to uncover the truth and find a missing pig.

Like all the early Janet romances, this one follows a pretty basic formula, with slight alterations here and there to keep it interesting.

1) Plumesque female with unruly curly hair.
2) Super alpha male.
3) A domestic pet that devours human food.
4) A nutty Grandmother.
5) A lot of mental head slapping and eye rolling by the heroine.
6) A weak but entertaining mystery.

Though it follows an all too familiar and predictable path, it's still an enjoyable afternoon read. It's serves it's purpose at entertaining, though it will lack any surprise and mystery for those of us who are Janet Junkies. Naughty neighbor is silly fun and a light easy read.

9 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Kelly VINE VOICE on July 10, 2008
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Louisa Brannigan lived a quiet orderly life until the morning her neighbor Pete Streeter stole her morning newspaper. Tired of him taking advantage of her whether it was parking in her parking place, hogging the community laundry room dryer, or the obnoxious calls in the wee hours of the morning, but the last straw was his theft of her paper. She knocked loudly on his door yelling at him in the process, and he chose to ignore her. Furious that he could totally disregard her, she grabbed her broom and started banging on the ceiling. When Pete went to confront Louisa, he found her door wide open and walked right in to settle her down. He was stunned by how attractive she was, as was she because she was expecting some neanderthal.

When Louisa and Pete found themselves being shot at that night, he quickly pulled her under his protection, but circumstances only got worse from there. He was attacked in his apartment in the middle of the night, and she was fired from her job as press secretary to Senator Noland Bishop just because she knew Pete. Feeling that something was smelly in Washington, he convinced Louisa to help him investigate. Pete thought it would be interesting to base his next screenplay on because he could just feel a scandal waiting to be uncovered. He just hoped he could keep Louisa safe, and in the process convince her that they were perfect for each other.

I have read most of her earlier works, and this is the best of them. Louisa is a very funny character, and was perfectly paired with Pete. They are charming together.

Format: Audio CD
This book is read by a voice that is shrill and penetrating. I persevered through the first CD - why is this reader so bad, what is the plot anyway, why am I wasting my time like this? Once the second CD started playing, and the reader blathered on about "an attack of conscious," I woke up and ejected the CD.

This is one of the worst audio CD books I've ever tried to listen to. I'll be quite happy to return it to the library on Monday.

I put a wonderful Debbie Macomber book into the slot instead, and continued driving, listening to a mellow book, well read, with a good plot.

An early work of Evanovich reprinted by Harper this light read holds up today. Even with magenta jackets and front clip bras). Some mystery, fun and supporting charactors make this a fun and fast read. Enjoy it for what it is and early Evanovich. It is not Plum but a forshadowing of her. Enjoy.

I was disappointed in this book. Although it was humorous at times, the main characters were annoying. Part of the problem could have been that I listened to the audio version and the narrator was such a ham. She overacted and her reading was so over the top, it was extremely annoying.

Fun, light-hearted read....follows the usual zany plot sequence and humorous dialogue of all Evanovich's screw-ball story lines. Have read the majority of these "Pre-Plum" novels and while CUTE and similar in their off-the-wall antics and endearing characters, they still leave you comparing them to Stephanie Plum and leave you a little bit wanting! On the other hand you can see how her much-loved characters from the beloved series develop in these first novels. But if you've read all of the Plum novels and are aching for some more wacky reads these will get you by with another hit of Evanovich!

Received promptly and in like-new shape!
