Polo instructor Nicholas Kaharcheck senses danger the minute he sees Billie Pearce. She represents everrythings he's so srtfully avoided. Happy in her home llife, a divorced mother of two, Billie is the epitome of stability. They have nothing in common.
To his horror, Nick is fascinated - and irresistibly attracted. When Billie generously offers to share her home with Nick's carzy cousin Deedee for a while, Nick finds himself visiting - often. And while each is slowly seduced by the other's charms, and both are wildly encouraged by devious Deedee, Billie and Nick find out that what they have in common is most important of all.

Full House boring..

I have loved listening to the Stephanie Plum series from Janet Evanovich, but found this book to be BORING. She seems to have tried to recreate some of the Plum series personalities in this book but they are not nearly as interesting. I kept waiting for something to happen; agonized and fast forwarded through 3 disks, then gave up...

I loved this book. It was so sexy and exciting. It really kept my interest. It made me wish I was Billie. I will definitely listen to the rest of the series.

This was the usual Evanovich book, none of which ever let me down. And as expected, I enjoyed it completely. It wasn't the greatest of the series, but it is a good start to the sequence. I'm anxious to read the next one. Good intro, Janet.

Slow-Paced Summer Fun

I expected a bit more "oomph" from Evanovich, having read the Stephanie Plum series, but "Full House" takes advantage of its Virginia horse-country setting to slow the pace a bit and amble rather than sprint through its exposition. A little heavier on the romance and lighter on the action, this is still a promising start to a new Evanovich series (new for me, anyway). The characters are just as quirky and fun as Plum's wacky posse. A great summer read!

I love Janet Evanovich books - while this one is pretty predictable, its a mystery who's blowing everything up! I liked the narrator! She changes her voice for the characters and it keeps it more interesting.

I agree with Becky from Tennessee. The narrator was annoying. I couldn't finish this.

This was great as an audio book. The voice of DeeDee made me laugh out loud!

I wanted to like this book, but frankly I couldn't wait for it to be over so that I could move on to my next audio book. Predictable, cliche, and the narrator was SO ANNOYING! I've read better romance on the wall of the gas station bathroom.

Evanovich, Janet

"When I was a kid I spent a lot of time in La La Land. La La Land is like an out-of-body experience --while your mouth is eating lunch your mind is conversing with Captain Kirk. Sometimes I'd pretend to sing opera. My mother would send me to the grocery store down the street, and off I'd go, caterwauling at the top of my lungs. Before the opera thing I went through a horse stage where I galloped everywhere and made holes in my Aunt Lena's lawn with my hooves. Aunt Lena was a good egg. She understood that the realities of daily existence were lost in the murky shadows of my slightly looney imagination.

After graduation from South River High School, I spent four years in the Douglass College art department, honing my ability to wear torn Levis, learning to transfer cerebral excitement to primed canvas. Painting beat the heck out of digging holes in lawns, but it never felt exactly right. It was frustrating at best, excruciating at worst. My audience was too small. Communication was too obscure. I developed a rash from pigment.

Somewhere down the line I started writing stories. The first story was about the pornographic adventures of a fairy who lived in a second rate fairy forest in Pennsylvania. The second story was about ...well never mind, you get the picture.

I sent my weird stories out to editors and agents and collected rejection letters in a big cardboard box. When the box was full I burned the whole damn thing, crammed myself into pantyhose and went to work for a temp agency.

Four months into my less than stellar secretarial career, I got a call from an editor offering to buy my last mailed (and heretofore forgotten) manuscript. It was a romance written for the now defunct Second Chance at Love line, and I was paid a staggering $2,000.

With my head reeling from all this money, I plunged into writing romance novels full time, saying good-by, good riddance to pantyhose and office politics. I wrote series romance for the next five years, mostly for Bantam Loveswept. It was a rewarding experience, but after twelve romance novels I ran out of sexual positions and decided to move into the mystery genre.

I spent two years retooling --drinking beer with law enforcement types, learning to shoot, practicing cussing. At the end of those years I created Stephanie Plum. I wouldn't go so far as to say Stephanie is an autobiographical character, but I will admit to knowing where she lives.

In '95 my husband and I moved to New Hampshire. We bought a big 'ol house on the side of a hill, not far from Dartmouth College. I have a nice view of the Connecticut River valley from my office window and there's a couple acres of land around the house. It's a good place to write a book ... and would be even better if we just had a decent mall. You can take the girl out of Jersey, but you can't take Jersey out of the girl.

When we moved to New Hampshire we realized there was more to this writing stuff than just writing, so we formed a family business, Evanovich, Inc. My son, Peter, a Dartmouth College graduate, assumed responsibility for everything financial. He's the guy who pulls his hair out at tax time and cracks his knuckles when the stock market dips. In '96 my daughter Alex, a film and photography school graduate, came on board and created the website. We get about four and a half million hits a month on the site and Alex does it all ... the graphics, the mail, the comics, the store, the online advertising and the newsletter. Both Peter and Alex work full-time for Evanovich, Inc. I'm their only client. My husband, Pete, has his doctorate in mathematics from Rutgers University and now manages all aspects of the business and tries to keep me on time (a thankless, impossible job!) ... plus he does a little golfing and skiing.

It turns out I'm a really boring workaholic with no hobbies or special interests. My favorite exercise is shopping and my drug of choice is Cheeze Doodles. I read comic books and I only watch happy movies. I motivate myself to write by spending my money before I make it. And when I grow up I want to be just like Grandma Mazur."
