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

On the day that Amy Klasse loses her job on children's TV to Red, a dancing rooster, she also meets gorgeous veterinarian Jake Elliott. It's love at first sight. But when Red disappears while being treated by Jake, Amy is the number one suspect. Hounded by news crews, Amy and Jake attempt to find the real culprit as they fall more and more in love. This cozy mystery is much more romance than crime, and a little short on plot. But C.J. Critt narrates with warmth and humor, giving to each slightly larger-than-life character a voice so redolent of back story that the listener smiles throughout.

By mayfayre TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on June 28, 2002
Format: Paperback
This is one of Janet Evanovich's early pre-Plum romances, and it's an enjoyable, sexy romp. Amy Klasse, who has been playing a clown named Lulu on her own TV show for children, is suddenly fired because the new station manager thinks that a show about a dancing rooster would do better in that time slot. Jake Elliott is the local much-beloved veterinarian, who also just happens to be very handsome and sexy. He sees Amy in a grocery store, and for him, it's love at first sight. He begins a stealthy campaign to get her to the altar. Of course, romance never proceeds smoothly and the upstart rooster goes missing and Amy is accused of being his kidnapper and worse. The scenes are funny, the dialogue is witty, and the characters are realistic and lovable. This is definitely a book worth finding.

I was loving this quirky book until close to the end. It was witty, funny and made me laugh out loud. The characters are fun and the thought of a clown losing her job to a chicken is absurdly hilarious! All was going well and I was enjoying the book (probably would have given it a 4 star rating) until the end. The last couple of chapters really didn't fit well. Spoiler Alert**** If the rooster deal was enough to drive Amy away, why did Jake not tell her what really happened in the end? A weather girl - no way! The ending felt too rushed and out of sync with the rest of the book. Wish Evanovich could go back and end this one properly. If I knew the ending was going to be so bad, I would not have read the book and I am a HUGE Evanovich fan!

You would never guess that a writer could take the case of a missing rooster and make it into a romantic comedy that will have you giggling all to yourself, but that's exactly what Janet Evanovich has done. If you are looking for a lighthearted book to read this exactly what you are searching for.

Her books other than the numbered books are only "like" because they just don't have the oomph!, the "punch", that her numbered books possess. Don't ask me why, but they just don't. And her love stories suck! She should stick to her regular numbered books, unless she can come up with characters who are as equally enchanting. Even her story lines aren't as good in these un-numbered books. I wonder why.

Another great story by Janet. I really enjoyed the CD and had to listen till the very end. Maybe I'm a hopeless romantic! :)

This is a great book. It is definitely a fun to read. It keeps you in suspense to the very end. It is a humorous mystery story with a twist or two. I would highly recommend this book. As usual this is another great book by a great author.

In this book a clown is replaced by a chicken on a television show. The clown is so angry that she accidentally runs into a veterinarian. There are many interesting twists and turns to the plot which leads to a happy ending.
