BOOK REVIEW

THREE TO GET DEADLY by Janet Evanovich
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: Feb. 1, 1997

"But in going repeatedly for the funny bone, Evanovich, who clearly agrees with her heroine that 'adaptation is one of the great advantages to being born and bred in Jersey,' is obviously dealing from strength."

SIZZLING SIXTEEN by Janet Evanovich

BOOK REVIEW

Released: Jan. 8, 2013

"Though details such as Caroline's fondness for chocolate cake may endear her to hungry readers, the characters aren't meaty or distinctive enough to dig into, leaving Evanovich and Kelly (Love in a Nutshell, 2012) on safe but familiar ground."
Will a young woman defy her mother and all society to be with the man she loves? Read full book review >
