Love in a Nutshell

Love in a Nutshell
by Janet Evanovich and Dorien Kelly

Kate Appleton seems to be on the receiving end of bad luck. She recently divorced her cheating husband but the final straw was losing her job as editor of a magazine. Kate decides to move to her parents’ summer vacation home in Michigan and turn it into a bed and breakfast. For extra cash, she finds a job bartending but is fired for serving bad beer. The only other alternative is to find employment at a local brewery owned by Matt Culhane.

Mr. Culhane finds out Kate lacks sufficient experience but makes a deal with her . . . pay the hourly minimum wage and if she finds the culprit that is sabotaging his company, there will be $20,000 bonus. After being hired, that is when problems begin for Kate and the brewery.

Even though the style of writing for this novel is a little different than the norm for Evanovich, it still is entertaining and fun to read.
