Bestselling authors Janet Evanovich and Charlotte Hughes bring their special blend of romantic mayhem to Beaumont, South Carolina, and to the life of Dr. Maggie Davenport, a chocoholic and family practitioner.
Maggie has never told her 13-year-old daughter that her real father is high school boyfriend Carl Lee Stanton, who became a bank robber and murderer and is safely locked away in a Texas prison. But when Carl Lee escapes years later, undercover FBI agent Zack Madden heads to Beaumont to intercept him at the most likely point of entry: Maggie's home. By then Maggie and Zack have discovered some undercover work they need to do on their own.
Evanovich and Hughes fill the book's pages with a host of wacky characters -- a nurse named Queenie who does a little voodoo on the side, a dog named Fleas who falls in love with a pygmy goat, and a host of Elvis impersonators. But readers can count on a few more things: a screwball action plot, a genuinely sweet romance, and a whole lot of chocolate dessert. Ginger Curwen
