Publisher's Summary

Live...laugh...read...with New York Times best-selling author Christie Craig....

"...Fans of Janet Evanovich should check [Craig] out." (Parkersburg News and Sentinel on Divorced, Desperate and Delicious)

Macy Tucker was five years old when her beloved grandfather dropped dead in his spaghetti. At 12, her father left his family in the dust. At 25, her husband gave his secretary a pre-Christmas bonus in bed, and Macy gave him the boot. To put things lightly, men have been undependable.

That's why dating's off the menu. Macy is focused on putting herself through law school - which means being the delivery girl for Papa's Pizza. But cheesier than her job is her pie-eyed brother, who just recently escaped from prison to protect his new girlfriend. And hotter than Texas toast is the investigating detective. Proud, sexy...inflexible, he's a man who would kiss her just to shut her up. But Jake Baldwin's a protector as much as a dish. And when he gets his man - or his woman - Macy knows it's for life.

Fun Read

Funny entertaining read, with different twist than the norm. I would read another of her books.

Entertaining!

This is my first time reading this author and what a delight! This story was funny, suspenseful and romantic. I loved how Christie Craig took the time to build up the relationship and the tension, and the sexual detail was enough without being a how-to manual. Rather, it was tasteful and not the focus of the story – the emotion was. And it got me good.

The main and secondary characters were three dimensional and loveable. The hero’s work partner is the main character in a delightful novella-length story, THE COP WHO STOLE CHRISTMAS, and it is equally charming.

I thoroughly enjoyed the performance of the new-to-me-narrator, Courtney Patterson. I just have one question because I don’t know any Texans: Do Texans really say “wadn’t” instead of “wasn’t”? It happened so much here. It distracted me a bit, but the narration was otherwise excellent, so I had to accept that is correct pronunciation.

I recommend this novel.

Thank you, Audible Escape.

While I have been enjoying my Audible Escape subscription, I did it to try and find new authors and stories because. And author Christie Craig, and Courtney Patterson as narrator, have more than made the subscription worthwhile. I loved “The Cop Who Stole Christmas” so much, I couldn’t wait to download this book, the first in the series. It most definetly did not disappoint. In fact, I’m moving on to the third in the series as soon as I hit the submit button on this review. If you’re a fan of the characters in Janet Evanovich, this author is for you.

Could have been good

Here's another one that could have been good, but wasn't. The heroine was such an idiot, that it brought down my rating by at least two stars. I'm all for strong, independent women, but to be contrary just to be contrary is plain silly, not strong and independent. Stupidly outrunning and pushing away her bodyguard when a murderous maniac is on the loose after her is stupid. She was also immature both emotionally and sexually. I just couldn't see what the hero ever wanted from her. In addition to the idiotic heroine there were at least three or maybe even more storylines on the same book. It's one thing that it was a mess, but it meant that everything remained superficial. A good writer can write a book full with just one storyline. This one couldn't. Last, but not least there was the brother and his wife. I don't think it can ever be okay to go after your brother's ex or the brother of your ex. Yet, the hero was expected to just forgive them, because they didn't physically cheated on him, and they didn't mean to hurt him. That was just too much BS
