Book Blurb:  When Megan Murphy discovered a floppy-eared rabbit gnawing on the hem of her skirt, she meant to give its careless owner a piece of her mind, but Dr. Patrick Hunter was too attractive to stay mad at for long. Soon the two are making Thanksgiving dinner for their families.

Review:  I've lost a lot of interest in the Stephanie Plum series, mostly because its 20 books in and I think its time for the characters to move on. That's why I love reading these reissues. They feel fresh, even though they were written well before Plum.

Evanovich writes funny so well and she did romance pretty well too, which makes me wonder why poor Stephanie has such issues.

Megan and Pat are an unlikely couple, thrown together by a runaway rabbit and a young mother who takes off without explanation. Megan does Pottery and Pat is a pediatrician just starting out, and he's oddly broke.

All the action takes place in Williamsburg around the holidays. Oh and neither of of them are good in the kitchen, which makes the traditional Thanksgiving that they want seem a bit far fetched, and funny.

They really fall for each other pretty quickly, but not without hijinks. I loved how Megan quickly fell for Timmy, especially since she was so anti-marriage.

Toss in a strange ex-boyfriend and you have a short, funny romance that is perfect for a lazy afternoon.

Janet, you need to go back to your romantic roots!
