This one tells the story of Megan Murphy, a potter who works part-time as a weekend aide in Colonial Williamsburg, and Patrick Hunter, a newly minted doctor who's taken over a pediatrician's practice there. They meet as a result of a rabbit attack and have to deal with one another because of a temporarily abandoned baby. There's instant... chemistry between them that they both immediately (but not very successfully) try to tone down, and the mixed joy of pretend parenthood as they both try to take care of the baby. Of course, both of them have commitment issues - Megan as a result of her past, and Patrick due to his uncertain future. But since this is an Evanovich book, it isn't bogged down with excessive introspection and instead perks along with witty repartee, the aforementioned cute baby, a suspiciously overweight horse, matchmaking sets of parents, a former suitor who's a victim of a dart attack, and, needless to say, a destroyed car.
If you can find a copy of this book, it's definitely worth buying for the amount of amusement and sweet romance it provides.
Megan and Patrick were funny together, and the rest of their families complemented the looney bin nicely.
While Meghan is sitting enjoying lunch one weekend she sees a floppy eared rabbit come up and is amused. The amusement dies when she finds him eating her skirt though. The rabbit's owner appears and claims him. The owner Pat Hunter is the new pediatrician in town. He is fresh out of med school and internship so while he is 30 he is just starting his practice. Pat is immediately drawn to Megan in her Colonial attire and flaming red hair, when she turns out to have a fun personality it only makes it better. Meg thinks Pat is scrumptious but as she has sworn off men she decides to just let things lie. Unfortunately for Meg the rabbit is back a few days later in a different section of town and Meg fears for its safety. Meg takes the rabbit to Pat's house and is reading him the riot act about responsible pet ownership when one of Pat's patients shows up assumes Meg is Mrs. Hunter and leaves her baby with them, saying it is for 2 weeks. As Tilly runs off both Pat and Meg are stunned and left literally holding the baby.
Pat and Meg shudder at the thought of putting the child into the system and decide they will take turns watching him and look for Tilly at the same time. The little fellow quickly wins over their hearts even though neither has raised a child.Read more ›
Soon they find themselves playing house and hosting a Thanksgiving dinner for both their families.
This is a cute story about two people who think they are not ready for love. Janet adds her usual flair with some zany happenings. There is witty and funny banter between characters. And of course an undesciplined animal, this time in the form of a bunny.
Not the deepest of romances, but enjoyable all the same.

A few good ( not great) humorous lines. Certainly not up to what I've come to expect from Evanovich. Good thing it didn't cost very much.Published 11 days ago by Cynthia Thomas
Fun but I don't see why she stops short of the description of them actually having nag sex. Seems silly.Published 14 days ago by Moira

It was a nice, light read. I enjoy all of Janel Evanovich's books. This book didn't have as much humor as the One For The Money series but I still enjoyed it.Published 4 months ago by Katherine Arismendez
