    Be aware

    Like the other reviews have said, this is a sweet little love story with likeable characters and several funny moments. What the other reviews HAVEN'T mentioned (and what isn't mentioned in the description) is that this is a Mormon romance novel. The characters are all Mormon, active or lapsed, and one of the major plotlines is that of the heroine returning to the church. If that's your cup of tea, then this book is great. If not, this is something you should know before you purchase this book. I'm not religious and I still enjoyed it, but I would have appreciated knowing before I bought.

    A Realistic Love Story

    How To Stuff a Wild Zucchini is by far my new favorite book. The love story it contains is so believeable and pulls at your heart strings. This book contains all the elements of a love story that any woman of any age would love. I highly reccomend it to anyone who is looking for a good read. I hope Heather Horrocks writes another novel or a sequal to this one. I'll be first in line if she does!

    An Hilarious Zucchini Romp!!!

    How To Stuff A Wild Zucchini by Heather Horrocks


    This is a delightful romantic comedy that has Lori Scott, frustrated Playwright with a Broadway Play that flops within a week, and with the dismal breakup of her boyfriend, dares her brother on a dart board that she will move to the spot the dart lands in, which is Brigham City, Utah, of all places she does not want to live. She decides to focus on subbing as "The Garden Guru" for the local paper. When she gets there, she finds way more than she expects. When she has to call in the local firefighters to prevent her rented house from burning to the ground, she meets one local firefighting hero, John Wayne Walker, who is everything she's been trying to avoid. She even promises to drive the classic "Monstrosity" once a week to appease its owner. No matter if you love or hate Zucchini, you'll be delighted with this romp. I totally laughed out loud in many places. I look forward to Heather's many romantic comedies. She's a keeper.

    I love this book!!

    How To Stuff a Wild Zucchini manages to combine humor that is funny, poignant and utterly romantic. On a dare Lori Scott throws a dart at a map and ends up going to live in the last place she wants to be. When she meets John Wayne Walker she is definitely not looking for a new man in her life. But Lori is the perfect match for John and he quickly realizes it and won't let her go. This book is a vicarious joyride packed with feeling and fun. There are many warm, sometimes funny, sometimes heartbreaking scenes in this book. I care about these characters. These are two people who meet at the wrong time- he's drifting through life, practically engaged, and she is recovering from both breakup and betrayal- and they manage to become friends and then so much more. I laughed, sighed and chuckled my way through this book and these great feelings lasted a long time after I'd finished the story. The garden guru, zucchini, and family scenes are wonderful additions to the romance. I love this story!!
