Love in a Nutshell by Janet Evanovich
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Recent divorcee Kate Appleton needs money to fix up her parents' rundown lake house and turn it in to a B&B. When she loses her job at the Tavern, she insists Matt Culhane give her a job in his brewery/restaurant. He hires her to snoop around and figure out who is sabotaging his business with a series of "accidents." However, the vandalism turns dangerous, forcing Kate and Matt into a closer relationship, much to Matt's delight.
This book is fun to read: fast-paced and humorous. The dialogue and style is reminiscent of Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series, but with no swearing or sex (the latter thanks to a canine chaperone).
