From AudioFile

One autumn day Megan Murphy meets Pat Hunter, the handsome owner of a rabbit--who eats dresses. Hunter, the new pediatrician, is given an infant to care for, and Megan falls for both of them. Their attraction grows in leaps and bounds, especially when everyone they meet thinks they're married. C.J. Critt keeps the action moving and the laughter flowing as Megan and Pat care for the baby, the rabbit, and each other's hearts. Critt's warm performance recounts a joint Thanksgiving, including an especially warm kitchen, and a romp through the town's historic village. Evanovich's romantic humor is comfortably performed in Critt's relaxed and inviting voice.

This a witty romance with snappy dialogue and an entertaining romantic duo. If you've enjoyed Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series, you're going to get a kick out of her stories for the Loveswept Romance imprint.
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 Murphy met new resident and pediatrician Patrick Hunter when his lop eared rabbit roommate Tibbles tried to turn her skirt into lunch. She met him again when she went to his home, and returned said rabbit after finding him unaccompanied on the street. While visiting with Megan, one of Patrick's patients Tilly Coogin came and left her baby with them stating she would be back as soon as she could to get him. Patrick was going to call social services to intervene because with his patient load, didn't have time to care for little Tim. Megan told him they couldn't do that to little Timmy, so she would baby-sit him during the day, and then bring him to Patrick for the night shift. It wasn't until after she got his agreement that she realized that was his plan all along. Patrick had ulterior motives, as he had plans of getting to know Megan's body much better! As they settle into a routine of sorts with Tim, both of them start feeling like they have a little family. When both sets of parents invade for Thanksgiving, Megan and Patrick really start to get attached and feel like they belong together. They even start planning a wedding. Then Tilly shows up, and both of them are devastated that they have to give Tim up. They start to wonder - is what they had real? Can their fragile relationship survive the loss of Tim?

Megan and Patrick were funny together, and the rest of their families complemented the looney bin nicely.

18 of 20 people found the following review helpful By TSchlaack on December 2, 2006
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Meghan Murphy has a late 20's woman trying to find her nitch in life. She has had 3 failed engagements, if you count the first one which happened when she was in grade school. After the last one she ended up in Colonial Williamsburg working part time as a weekend ticket taker for local shops and a full time tea pot maker during the week. While this current lifestyle is lonely she is happy with herself and feels like she is making her way finally.

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.

Megan is a woman who has been engaged 3 times. She has moved to Colonial Williamsburg to start over and give up men. Then one day while sitting on a bench a bunny starts eating her skirt. The bunny's owner is the new pediatrician in town, Patrick.

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.
