Welcome to Waiting on Wednesday, our opportunity to spotlight upcoming releases we’re eagerly anticipating.

Hosted by Jill, at Breaking the Spine, you can join in, too.  Just follow the link, share your featured book, and visit lots of other blogs, too.

I’m a fan of this author, and this book looks like the beginning of a new series, with a great new protagonist.  Or maybe it’s a stand-alone treat from Janet Evanovich, who co-authors with Dorien Kelly in Love in a Nutshell.  Coming 1-3-2012.

About the Book:

Number one bestselling author Janet Evanovich teams up with award-winning author Dorien Kelly to deliver a sparkling novel of romantic suspense, small-town antics, secretive sabotage, and lots and lots of beer
Kate Appleton needs a job. Her husband has left her, she’s been fired from her position as a magazine editor, and the only place she wants to go is to her parents’ summer house, The Nutshell, in Keene’s Harbor, Michigan. Kate’s plan is to turn The Nutshell into a Bed and Breakfast. Problem is, she needs cash, and the only job she can land is less than savory.
Matt Culhane wants Kate to spy on his brewery employees. Someone has been sabotaging his company, and Kate is just new enough in town that she can insert herself into Culhane’s business and snoop around for him. If Kate finds the culprit, Matt will pay her a $20,000 bonus. Needless to say, Kate is highly motivated. But several problems present themselves. Kate despises beer. No one seems to trust her. And she is falling hard for her boss.
Can these two smoke out a saboteur, save Kate’s family home, and keep a killer from closing in…all while resisting their undeniable attraction to one another? Filled with humor, heart, and loveable characters, Love in a Nutshell is delicious fun.
Excited yet?  I certainly am, and now I’m eager to visit your offering.  Hope you’ll come by here, too.


  1. I have yet to read her Stephanie Plum books, but I’m always in the mood for some good contemporary reads — this fits the bill perfectly. I will definitely keep an eye out for it! 😀

    Thanks for stopping by!


  2. I haven’t read much Evanovich, only One for the Money, but it was hilarious. She is a very good writer, so I may have to look into this one. Thanks for stopping by!


    • One for the Money is one I’ve missed. I must read it, especially since it’s going to be a movie (in 2012?), and the grandma is being played by Debbie Reynolds. Now she’s hilarious!

      Thanks for stopping by, Vyki…enjoy your week.


  3. I haven’t read any books by Janet Evanovich but I have been in the same bookstore as her before (though I didn’t know it at the time)! Hope you enjoy your book when you finally get it!
