      I read this one in one night. Cute story, but there isn't much to it. A little romance, a little humor, and a little adventure makes for a good night's entertainment.

    2. Julie (jjmachshev) says:

      I really enjoyed reading "Foul Play" by Janet Evanovich. This is one of her very early books written for a serial romance publisher in the late 80s/early 90s, and it's very well done for what it is. Evanovich describes these early books as "red-hot screwball comedies" and while I do agree with the screwball comedy, "Foul Play" was very much G-rated. So if you enjoy a very light romance with side-splitting laughter, this is definitely a book for you.

    3. Jennifer says:

      Light, fluffy and fun. It was fun to read this in part because it is early Evanovich - so it was rougher than her Plum books are - but her humor and motifs are still there. I did have a hard time with some of the stuff in this book. The leading man is Jacob Elliott. He is in the parking lot at the grocery store waiting patiently for Mrs. Moyer and her dog to back out of a parking spot so he can pull in. (He knows it's Mrs. Moyer because he is the town Vet - and he recognizes her dog.) But! Befor [...]

      Really a half star would be more suited. The narrator on audio was horrible. Voice like Maude on Golden Girls. Cheesy doesn't even come close to an accurate descriptionStory was just ridiculous. Why someone as talented as Ms. Evanovich would attach her name to this book is beyond me. I would have quit listening, but needed noise in the car.

    5. Cathy says:

      Just a light, silly romance, but that's all it was meant to be. If you want a few chuckles, go for it.

    6. Krissy says:

      Cheesy af

    7. Donna Craig says:

      This is a quick, easy read in which I did cheer for the main characters. However, it was dorky and dumb with an annoying ending. So two stars.

    8. Melissa says:

      As I have previously mentioned, I love Janet Evanovich. But her early works are really fluffy and just okay. The premise of the book is a young woman named Amy gets fired from her job as Lulu the Clown because the new program director replaces her with a rooster. In her dismay, she catches the eye of a hunky veterinarian and they fall in love within a matter of minutes. Did I mention that she is a 26-year-old virgin? The job-stealing rooster winds up at veterinarian-man's place of work and soon [...]

      This book was so cute! Funny romance.

    10. Samantha says:

      Foul Play is admittedly a quick read, but it does have a playful storyline and clear evidence of being the early work of Janet Evanovich. I could easily see Amy as being related to Stephanie. A seeming trademark of Evanovich books is that the female protagonist usually starts life over somehow, and Amy's situation in the beginning of the story is no exception. It is a bit alluring to watch her find herself while she also figures out her job predicament. Nice rainy day entertainment.

    11. Hannah says:

      Actually 3.5 stars.This is a wacky, irreverent, and often laugh-out-loud funny book. It's a quick read, perfect for when you need a mood-booster. The romance between Jake and Amy is sweet, and the "mystery" plot, if it can even be called that, is highly entertaining. Very enjoyable, as long as you don't take it too seriously.

    12. Aleshia says:

      Didnt love it didn't hate it

    13. Joy says:

      This is a funny, quick typlical Evanovich read. I enjoyed it, had some laughs, but not much else was gleaned from this one. But if you enjoy Janet Evanovich, I'm sure you will enjoy this one!

    14. Tonya Lucas says:

      A fun and witty light hearted romantic mystery! When life is so full of tension and turmoil, this is the kind of book to escape into. Enjoy!

      ariel would love this

      Amy Klasse just lost her job as the clown host of a children’s program—to a chicken! She is livid. She didn’t even get a last program to say farewell to her fans. Veterinarian Jacob Elliott sees her in all her fury in the parking lot of the local market, is fascinated, and follows her into the store. From dropped fruit to shattered eggs, Amy’s tour through the store is a disaster culminating in her embarrassment at the checkout when she realizes she doesn’t have her handbag which is lo [...]

    17. Alvera says:

      Some annoyingly predictable romance novel plot devices that could even be a bit disturbing if I think too hard about the implications, but still Wacky. Fun. And refreshing in that most of the sexiness was more suggestion than play by play. "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." -- Janet Evanovoch, 19 [...]

    18. Kristen Lewendon says:

      When the author describes these as "screwball comedies" she's not kidding. It's an adventure in Murphy's Law, plagued by 'what's the worst that can happen?'. I'm not totally sure I'm sold on the instant soulmate connection between Jake and Amy, but they make for an interesting pairing. They're also highly unlikely sleuths, bumbling through trying to find out what happened to the missing bird. There's really nothing deep, or emotional, or dramatic in here. The story's light and airy, like marshma [...]

    19. Micheala says:

      It should have been a funny fluffy read, however I found that all the troupes ((view spoiler)[insta love, getting engaged after only 5 days, complete virgin/goody-two shoes girl, etc. (hide spoiler)]) combined with some problematic relationship themes being romanticized lowered my enjoyment. With this author I think I'll stick to the Stephanie Plum series, at least then the main female character has enough sass to be likeable and not totally forgettable/slightly annoying like Amy.

    20. Mollie says:

      This is my first Janet Evanovich and I think it might be my last. Flat characters, helpless virgin, madly in love and engage within 5 whole days and don't forget the man sweeping in and rescuing her with no thought or discussion to what she wanted. Maybe I'm missing something? Was this tongue in cheek? I'll let you know after I get the bile out of my mouth.

    21. Deborah Smith says:

      I love Janet Evanovich, but this book wasn't as good as numbered series. It started off really well, but declined as it went. The story seemed a little on the juvenile side and the ending left a lot to be desired.

    22. Helen says:

      A funny, sometimes almost absurd screwball comedy reminiscent of Grant and Hepburn's Bringing Up Baby film. Once the mystery was solved, though, the plot fell off and Amy didn't do enough to win her own happy ending.

    23. Kari says:

      Mildly entertaining, if only to make fun of it. No character development, ridiculous plotline, and characters who don't function or think like normal healthy average adults.It comes off as someone trying to write a sitcom into a novel, but it fails epicly.Brainless junk.

    24. Tracy says:

      Short and cheesy and silly.

    25. Bobbi says:

      A pretty fun book although I thought the mystery about the chicken was a bit unnecessary but I enjoyed the story none the less.

    26. Tori Pauling says:

      I read an updated version by Janet Evanovich, and it was meh. Short and easy read, but definitely skipped some parts.

    27. Amy Moniz says:

      Love the characters, the story, but wish there was a sequel about life afterwards

    28. Suzanne says:

      Cute story. Liked how it flipped between man/woman point of view.Several editing errors.

    29. Kristal says:

      Not the most ground-breaking or original book by Evanovich but still a fun read. This a good book to read over the weekend when it's too cold to go outside.
