On the day that Amy Klasse loses her job on children's TV to Red, a dancing rooster, she also meets gorgeous veterinarian Jake Elliott. It's love at first sight. But when Red disappears while being treated by Jake, Amy is the number one suspect. Hounded by news crews, Amy and Jake attempt to find the real culprit as they fall more and more in love. This cozy mystery is much more romance than crime, and a little short on plot. But C.J. Critt narrates with warmth and humor, giving to each slightly larger-than-life character a voice so redolent of backstory that the listener smiles throughout.

This book is difficult to listen to, meanders about and is often out on a tangent. Janet is (in my opinion) the second best author of humorous romance on the planet (sorry - Jennifer Crusie is funnier) but this is just not done in her usual charming and captivating style. Don't waste your credit!
IF all you want is several hours of 'his chest was glistening...' and 'her pouty lips' without any real plot or reason for this existing, buy this book. As a fan of 'Stephanie Plum' by Evanovich, I was supremely disappointed and felt the money spent on this audio book was a total waste. I was a little shocked that such a good author could write such a boring, lame book. Don't get me wrong. I've read good romance books. They generally have a real plot somewhere among the sweat. This pretended it did. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY
I really like Janet Evanovich's stories. However this one was a bit corny. Also it came to an abrupt halt. The story was going along all nice and intriguing and then it was like 'oh, we need to finish this up' and then next several minutes were just a rapid conculsion. It seemed out of place.
I love the author and her stories. They have a playful and sarcastic edge, almost comic. The narrator has demeaned this audiobook into a horrible stuccato and plaused reading. It seemed to be a reading more appreciated by a group of four or five year olds. I felt shocked and ashamed that the voice that would tell me about 'Old Mother Hubberd' was telling me about the devirgining of the main character.
Rarely do I come across a book I can't get through. The story was too simple and vapid. No character development, no plot, no mystery, no intrigue.
I love Janet Evanovich this is not like Janet Evanovich's writing. Do not waste your money!
Hello, my name is Teresa and I'm an addict.
Funny at first and then at the end needs a little help, because it is no longer funny.
Her characters are so believable. It is amazing to even think that a chicken debacle might even happened.
