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's 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's strong loving arms...
We guarantee that you're going to have as much fun reading 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, twenty-two pound orange cat....

FULL BLOOM by Janet Evanovich and Charlotte Hughes is 344 pages in paperback form. This is #5 in The Jamie Swift and Max Holt Series.
This is as good as the Stephanie Plum books with all the quirky characters and craziness that goes on. Annie was the main focus in this book with her bordello bed and breakfast. Annie is one feisty girl who seems to have anger management issues at times and everyone is telling her to work on them.
I laughed throughout the book, so if you need a quick laugh with not a bad story, this is the book for you. The only complaint I have was that it seemed like the book was too short, but I guess that is why it is a series, so you can just read the next one. I plan on doing that too.
I am giving this 5 out of 5 stars and can't wait to read the next one. I am sure it will be as witty as this one was.
