The #1 bestselling Janet Evanovich teams up with award-winning author Dorien Kelly to deliver a sparkling novel of romantic suspense, small-town antics, secretive sabotage, and lots and lots of beer.

Kate Appleton needs a job. Her husband has left her, she’s been fired as a magazine editor, and she’s got nothing left but the Nutshell—her parents’ summer house in Keene’s Harbor, Michigan. Kate hopes to turn the Nutshell into a bed-and-breakfast. Problem is, she needs cash, and the only job she can find involves beer and espionage.

Matt Culhane wants Kate to spy on his brewery employees. Someone has been sabotaging his company, and if Kate finds the culprit, Matt will pay her a $20,000 bonus. Unfortunately, Kate despises beer, her co-workers don’t trust her—and she’s falling hard for her boss. Can these two smoke out a saboteur, save Kate’s B&B, and keep a killer from closing in…all while resisting their undeniable attraction to one another?

    Comments about Love in a Nutshell:

    Love in a Nutshell is the first book in the Culhane Family series by American authors Janet Evanovich and Dorien Kelly. Divorcee Kate Appleton has a problem. Her family's summer house, Nutshell would make an ideal Bed & Breakfast except for the fact that it's heavily mortgaged and needs quite a bit of work. Kate has no money and no job.

    When Kate turns up at the Depot Brewery looking for a job, Matt Culhane is instantly attracted. He figures to keep Kate around by employing her to do some covert investigation into who might be sabotaging his company.

    Here's a romance-mystery where the romance is a bit too slow moving while the mystery is more irritating than intriguing. The characters are really just OK, but it's got a "phoned-it-in" feel: there's not enough depth in it to warrant reading the second book in the series, The Husband List. A bit ho-hum.
