Описание

"[Evanovich] is funny and ceaselessly inventive."
-Los Angeles Times Book Review

"Do yourself a favor and read this one."
-Washington Post

The author of so many spectacularly successful mystery novels featuring the inimitable Stephanie Plum, #1 New York Times bestselling author Janet Evanovich displays a more playfully romantic side with The Rocky Road to Romance. Evanovich delights with a classic, pre-Plum contemporary romance novel that's sure to please-a lighthearted tale of three-way love affair involving a radio "dog lady"-turned-traffic reporter, her handsome program director, and a huge couch potato canine named Bob.

    Amüsant und leicht zu lesen. Provoziert keine Lachstürme wie andere Evanovich-Romane, verleitet aber immer wieder zum Schmunzeln.

    Read this novel during a manicure/pedicure appointment at the nail salon today. It was the perfect book for an interlude of light-hearted, fun reading. As Janet Evanovich shared in a note to the reader in the beginning of the book, "In a previous life, before the time of Plum, I wrote twelve (12) short romance novels, Red-hot screwball comedies, each and everyone of them. Nine (9) of these stories were originally published by the Loveswept line between the years 1988 and 1992. All immediately went out-of-print and could be found only at used bookstores and yard sales. I'm excited to tell you that those nine (9) stories are now being re-released by HarperCollins."
    The best thing about having this novel with me today is that I met two (2) other fans of Janet Evanovich at the nail salon and we launched into a quick conversation of our mutual love of the Stephanie Plum series and shared our favorite characters.
    Janet Evanovich has said that "Romance novels are birthday cake and life is often peanut butter and jelly. I think everyone should have lots of delicious romance novels lying around for those times when the peanut butter of life gets stuck to the roof of your mouth." There was a lot of peanut butter stuck this week and this joyous romantic comedy brought the simple joys of life to mind which reminds us all how many blessings we can treasure on the most ordinary of days.

    Aunt Elsie was funny but Bob the dog was a hoot. He stole the show.

    What Money Can Buy

    The Rocky Road to Romance begins with a girl getting a new position as a traffic reporter; which leads her to unintentionally stopping a couple of crimes while being wooed by her boss whom does nothing but spend money to try and impress her. The aspect of money makes the storyline seem as if everything can be fixed with money being thrown at it. This book however is filled with some comedy which makes it hard to put down.

    Steve needs a temporary traffic reporter and Daisy, his dog lady spot, volunteers. She ends up hitting a drug dealer and her life is threatened. Steve never knew how fantastic Daisy was until she volunteered and now he will protect her no matter what. I enjoyed this story. I can see elements that later went into her Stephanie Plum series. The characters are quirky but fun. The story was good with humor sprinkled in it. Danger was Daisy's middle name. This is a summer afternoon's beach read.

    Laugh out loud book! Loved it! Will read more of her books!

    I listened to this on audio. This is just plain brain candy….much like the Plum novels but without their full potential. It was cute and you could see many of the ideas Evanovich uses for her popular Plum series, like a dog named Bob and a gun-toting granny. However, I found both protagonists, Daisy Adams and Steve Crow, more annoying at times than endearing. Daisy also known as the Dog Lady is a graduate student balancing one too many jobs when she offers to take on yet another role as traffic reporter. Steve is Daisy’s boss who suddenly takes notice in Daisy and ends up falling in love with her after a couple of pages into the book. The quick romance is not what bothered me so much. It was more the unrealistic dialogue and character interaction between the two. I didn’t really feel any sparks. There were some comedic moments, but they were a little too contrived for me so I found them more corny than funny. Overall, it’s a story to enjoy on a lazy summer day or a rainy day when you need something quick and light to read.

    Quick and cute story of romance.

    An easy and fun mystery is a good description of this book. Being a Plum fan, I'm wondering if this is where Ms. Evanovich got the idea for her characters. Elsie reminded me of Stephanie's grandmother and Daisy had a little bit of Stephanie in her. I enjoyed reading it; a good escape from a stressful week.

    After an unexpected accident with the traffic reporter on WZZZ, operations manager Steve Crow was desperate for a fill in reporter. Desperate enough to give the kooky dog lady Daisy Adams a try behind the wheel. Even after a terrible first broadcast, Daisy was sent o a breaking news story and ended up being the story. Having a hand, or more like a fender, involved in the capture of the bad guy, the threat to Daisy’s life seemed to hit Steve hard. His overwhelming feeling of protectiveness leading him to hire a bodyguard (Elsie Hawkins). Something about Daisy also prompted Steve to get a dog (Bob), buy an SUV and a house - good thing he’s rich. Now if she would just slow down and stay out of trouble maybe he would be able to sleep nights.Another pre-Plum re-release. Got a kick out of the first Bob the dog. Also liked the character of Elsie Hawkins, you can really see the beginnings of the character of Grandma Mazur. Lots of thing happen to and around Daisy, I liked how Steve handled it all. As with most of Janet Evanovich books, there was laugh out loud moments as well as the action and the character interactions. Another example of why she is such a popular author.

    In retrospect, I think I liked this one the best of all the Evanovich romance I've read so far. The relationship still gets off to too fast a start for my taste, but that just seems to be how these types of stories go.The "awesome old lady" character appears again, and I will never grow tired of this character as long as Evanovich writes her, because she is always hilarious.Daisy has a bit more development than any of the other characters in the Evanovich romances, too. She's got a lot going on in her life, and manages to balance it all out until she starts to think about what it is that she really wants. The plot of this one was slightly more palatable than the others too, where it had a slight mystery element to it that wasn't too over-the-top, but was more interesting than the slice-of-life drama situations that came up as the points of contention in the others.Also, the male love interest in this book (I think his name was Steve) was the best so far, too.

    This book was one of my favorites in Evanovich's romance book series. I loved the characters of Daisy and Steve. It is so great to read a story about a man falling in love with a women so quickly. Daisy is a harder sell, but she also falls in love with Steve, and if there was ever a women that needed taking care of it was Daisy.

    I just love these re-released romance novels. They are pre-Plum and show the beginning of a Best Selling Author. All the characters are flawed and fabulous! They are quick, simple reads. If you need something light hearted and enjoyable pick it up!

    Before she started writing the excellent Stephanie Plum mysteries, Evanovich wrote some simple, short romantic comedies that are now being reprinted. These are great if you want something funny and sweet to cheer you up. There's not much too them, but I've been enjoying them due mainly to Evanovich's great sense of humor. They're all really similar to each other. Plum fans will like them because they contain the seeds of many of her best characters. Rocky Road is the story of an overworked dog-lover who takes over the traffic report and falls for the owner of the station. So far, this is the best of the romances.
