"Love In A Nutshell"

Kate Appleton needs a job. Her husband has left her, she’s been fired from her position as a magazine editor, and the only place she wants to go is to her parents’ summer house, The Nutshell, in Keene’s Harbor, Michigan. Kate’s plan is to turn The Nutshell into a Bed and Breakfast. Problem is, she needs cash, and the only job she can land is less than savory.
Matt Culhane wants Kate to spy on his brewery employees. Someone has been sabotaging his company, and Kate is just new enough in town that she can insert herself into Culhane’s business and snoop around for him. If Kate finds the culprit, Matt will pay her a $20,000 bonus. Needless to say, Kate is highly motivated. But several problems present themselves. Kate despises beer. No one seems to trust her. And she is falling hard for her boss.

Can these two smoke out a saboteur, save Kate’s family home, and keep a killer from closing in…all while resisting their undeniable attraction to one another? Filled with humor, heart, and loveable characters. 

My Thoughts...

I needed something fun to read and decided on this novel. And I must say I wasn't disappointed. It was "Mind Candy" at it's best. "Love in a Nutshell" was delicious fun. It was a nice light choice with a bit of romance and mystery, just enough to keep it interesting and fun. It was an entertaining contemporary second chance at love kind of romance story. 

Since I wanted to read this book just for fun that was exactly what I got. I enjoyed it enough to award it 4 stars. 

I own this book, it is part of my personal library. One less book on my TBR pile.


  1. This does sound like a fun book, Gigi Ann. I'm glad it lived up to your expectations. :)

  2. This does sound cute and fun cover too!

  3. Sounds like I will have to add this one to my winter reading list. I like most of Janet's books, so will give this one a try.
