Publisher's Summary

Dear Listener,

The temperature's on "sizzle" again in Beaumont, South Carolina, where peach trees are in season and ripe for the picking. So is its newest entrepreneur, Annie Fortenberry, who has inherited her grandmother's B&B (and its eccentric handyman Erdle Thorney). According to a local psychic, she also inherited a spirit from its glory days as a brothel - not the kind of publicity the Peach Tree Bed & Breakfast needs if it's hosting millionaire Max Holt's upcoming wedding!

If rumors of a naughty, prank-playing ghost aren't stressful enough, a mysterious man has arrived with an eye on Annie and her master suite. Wes Bridges is all leather and denim, sporting a two-day beard, straddling a Harley, and sending the B&B's testosterone level through the roof.

Annie's cool demeanor may be dropping as fast as Wes' jeans, but leave it to her missing ex-husband to dampen the passion! Turns out someone has done him in, and all evidence points to Annie! Wrapped up in a murder plot, Annie must find the killer, save her own neck, and get back to where she was - wrapped up in Wes' strong, loving arms.

We guarantee that you're going to have as much fun listening to Full Bloom as we had writing it! (Even if we were surprised by the ending!) And you won't want to miss the hair-raising shenanigans when Fleas, the hound dog, meets the most cantankerous, snooty, bad-tempered, 22-pound orange cat.

Unbelievable

The writing is excellent. There are some truly funny, laugh out loud bits. Sadly, the story is merely a vehicle for Wes and Annie to get it on. Annie’s husband has disappeared, gone off with another woman, she thinks. What’s a woman to do but run the B&B her eccentric grandmother left her. Of course it used to be a bordello, so innuendos abound. I used to be in the military, so I am used to people with sex on the brain, but really? Every other comment is about sex. And then Wes shows up to rent a room and moves so quickly on Annie my head spins. Of course she is overcome with wet panties. Of course she doesn’t question his motives. Of course she loses control while he chuckles smugly. I hate that, the smug so many authors put on their men. She’s weak, she needs a man to take care of her, and he is smug and in control. Geez, give a girl a backbone, please. And a brain. Oh, and some action other than fretting and making supper. I am not a feminist, but it would be so nice to not have to search so very hard for a heroine who isn’t pathetic.

Awful!

This was terribly written and poorly acted. While the narrator gave different voices to the characters, the voices were horrible. The story plot was lame, the characters were clumsy and stupid. I rarely give bad reviews but this one warrants it. Pass this one by.

Horrible portrayal of one character

The awful southern accent of a main character completely ruined my enjoyment of what might have been a fun little story.

Evanovich shines

This is a great little love story/mystery! Of course I love Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum Mysteries but this is an earlier story done in collaboration with Charlotte Hughes. Lots of funny characters well developed and very good story. I have read most of her earlier books and truly enjoyed them.

Narrator is garbage

Her voices and accents are incredibly annoying. Couldn’t get past 40 mins of this book. It was awful.
