Smitten Book Review

I have been set on going through all the books on my shelf to read lots of them so I went through and picked a few easy paperbacks to start off with.  Smitten by Janet Evanovich was one of the first ones to go into the pile.  I looked at the library to see if they had the first in the series but quickly learned that this was more of a collection then a series with the same characters so I grabbed this one off my shelf to read while I was staying up half the night coughing.  It kept me focused on something other then my horrible cough and I was grateful to have it!!!

Single mom Lizabeth Kane isn't exactly carpenter material -- she's never picked up a hammer in her life. But she desperately needs the construction job that builder Matt Hallahan is offering. And even though he knows trouble is ahead, Matt can't refuse Lizbeth's irresistible smile.  Matt Hallahan isn't exactly relationship material -- he has always been too busy working on other people's houses to make a home of his own. And even though she knows better, Lizabeth can't stop thinking about the rugged carpenter.  Is the relationship Matt and Lizabeth are building solid -- or more like a house of cards?

I enjoyed this and when I went through my pile of books in my bookcase, I realized that I have two copies of the book!!  They have different covers so I am pleading the 5th but I know that I didn't pay for either book.  One of them will be going into my garage sale because I certainly don't need both but it did make me laugh that I obviously wanted to read it.  I am trying to go through and make some progress on the large amount of books that I haven't read yet.  Here is hoping that I might get to part with some of them because my shelves are overflowing with books even after selling at least two boxes at the last yard sale.  This book was very entertaining and a quick read.  I loved watching Lizabeth grow into her own person through her construction job.  She worked hard to provide for her family and at the same time became very independent while also learning that she can rely on other people to support her.  Matt becomes that person because he is there with her every day and working to win her over with his continued support.  When she has a strange stalker, he ends up moving in to help with the problem.  Lizabeth is set that she isn't going to open her life up to anyone and then realizes that she might have already done so without realizing it!!  I hope that you read this laugh a minute book and see all the trouble that they get into through the book.  I hope that you enjoy it as much as I did!!!
