Book review: “Love in a Nutshell” by Janet Evanovich and Dorien Kelly
“Love in a Nutshell” (St. Martin's Press, $27.99) by Janet Evanovich and Dorien Kelly is a light, romantic mystery. Kate Appleton, recently divorced and unemployed, moves to her parents' summer house, The Nutshell, in Michigan. She plans to restore the place and make it into a bed-and-breakfast.
Matt Culhane owns the local brewery. Someone is sabotaging his company. When Kate applies for a job, Matt thinks she might be able to help him find the culprit. If she finds the saboteur, Matt will pay her a $20,000 bonus — the amount she needs to pay off the mortgage he holds on her parents' property.
Kate strives to keep her independence and not fall in love so soon after her bad experience with marriage. Matt has other ideas. They fall in love, catch the bad guy, and everyone lives happily ever after.
This is a great book to escape into. It doesn't require any deep thought.
