    This was an oldie but a goodie, pre Stephanie Plum romance by Janet Evanovich. In this story love at first sight is in evidence. It takes place in Williamsburg, VA. Megan Murphy is a potter/historical greeter who ran away from her hometown to start over. She had been left at the alter by her previous fiancee and she wanted a new beginning. Patrick Hunter, a pediatrician with a curious rabbit has just moved to Williamsburg to take over a practice from a retiring physician. When Megan rescues Pat's floppy-eared rabbit, they end up in his house together. One of his patients, assuming they are married, leaves her baby for them to take care of for a couple of weeks, with no explanation. The two of them become quite close while taking care of Timmy. They actually become very enamoured of one another and fall in love, although they do not want to admit it. When both sets of parents show up for Thanksgiving, the plans for their wedding are by the mothers begin to take place. Although they are in love, neither of them is ready to get married. They play along in jest, but is there some truth there? I love the humor that Evanovich always uses in her books. The main characters play off each other beautifully and are easy to like. A cute romance for the holidays.

    It all begins with the killing of a turkey on a cold November morning in 1662. This is where the legend starts that will follow the Morley family through the course of 350 years, seen through the eyes of the women of the family as they prepare for Thanksgiving dinner.

    Whereas remembering is generally a process aimed at a past, in Elizabeth Cooney's quiet, beautiful novel memory travels forward, is being inherited and re-shaped into legend, is held by a house that is a home to many generations of Morleys as they move through the years, through the historical incidents of their time - though the latter are never drawn to the foreground of the plot and more of a subtle whisper underneath.

    Cooney's prose is very delicate, introspective and exudes a warmth that seems to stem from the author's genuine love for her characters. Not all of the chapters of family history that we get a glimpse of are equally strong, there are a few that seem a bit less inspired in comparison to the rich and poetic beginning, but in the light of Cooney's masterly and consistant ability to make the things she describes tangible to all senses, those didn't change my overall appreciation for this novel.

    Janet Evanovich never fails to provide me with a nice, feel-good read. This one was no exception. The protagonist was easy to relate to and love, along with her enemy-turned-companion after being thrown into a quite unusual circumstance. Lovely little read.

    Silly romantic novel.

    What an enjoyable book ... full of humor and plenty of action. I especially liked the 'it's a beautiful day' scenes. However, I wish he would have grovelled some near the end. Pediatrician Patrick meets pottery maker Megan when his rabbit starts nibbling on her clothes.

    There is no doubt that Janet Evonovich penned this romance. Megan is a woman with attitude, if a bit inept. (Stephanie Who??) She may not be blowing up cars, but she certainly has a left a path of destruction when it comes to bridegrooms. It’s all fun and frolic in this romp of a romance, especially when two almost-strangers find themselves connected by one abandoned baby. Good all-around fun.

    This was a quick and fun read. I don't buy the whole I love you, want to marry you and have your kids after a week, but the characters are likeable and funny. The craziness that happens to the two main characters could only happen in an evanovich novel and thats why I love reading her books. No matter how unplausible the story is, it is a great escape for a couple of hours.

    I seem to be into theme reading this year, since I picked this up shortly before Thanksgiving. It is your typical Evanovich screwball romance, so it’s hard to find anything wrong with it. Both the male and female lead are more cute than sexy, making them perfectly suited for each other. This is not quite as hot as some of Evanovich’s romances, but there’s still a little bit of steam. And Megan goes a little bit nutsy at one point, but it all works out okay in the end. This is good quick read for a cold night when you want to feel like you’ve accomplished something.

    Not like her other novels. It was a Romance.

    A quick, easy, light hearted, and comical read about a potter and a pediatrician. Megan and Pat get stuck taking care of a baby and are responsible for Thanksgiving dinner for thier families. One thing leads to another and suddenly they are considering marriage...only both have thier doubts about being an adoptive family for the baby and being a great spouse for the other. Thier relationship takes a turn when Pat verbalizes his fears followed quickly by a visit from Megan's ex fiancee, who wants her back. Strongly recommend this and all Evanovich's books.

    Megan Murphy is a potter living in Williamsburg, Va. She supplements her income on the weekends by being a tour guide n the historical area. The story begins with a hungry bunny nibbling on her skirt and her confrontation with the owner, a handsome young pediatrician.The story evolves into a light hearted romance complete with an Patrick (the doctor) being caught by Megan's father wearing her pink chenille bathrobe and nothing else. It was utterly delightful. The antics surrounding the Thanksgiving dinner are enough to make you laugh until you cry.

    Having just met the small town of Williamsburg’s new pediatrician (Dr. Patrick Hunter) with the corky sense of humor, Megan Murphy was stunned that a young girl would assume she was his wife and drop a baby (Timmy) off. Deciding to give the young women a few days to come back, Megan ‘agreed’ to help take care of the child. Patrick was surprised at how quickly he became attached to Megan and Timmy. The more he thought about it, her realized that he was not in the position to take a wife, and child on, no matter what his or her parents thought of the idea during their joint Thanksgiving Day. She had already turned his joking proposals down, maybe she was right but Patrick could not let her ex have her back.Janet Evanovich has a way of making it all so much fun. From the first time the bunny rabbit nibbled on Megan’s skirt to the last proposal (there were several), this was a fun and lighthearted story even through the few serious moments for them and the poor horse. A quick and enjoyable read, better than a dart in your backside if you know what I mean (it‘s in the book). This is an older story, it was originally published in 1988 but is part of Janet Evanovich’s re-releases, bringing happy reading to a new generation.

    I was quite disappointed with this story after enjoying Smitten in its way. It's hard to pick on it though, because the problems I had with it were all things that I could avoid simply by not reading this type of romance novel. I suppose it wasn't as funny as the other Evanovich novels I've read, which is a fair comment.I hated the element of the infant, because I knew the mother would come back for it in the end. And when that happened, I thought the female's emotional fallout was really bizarre.I've read three of these books now, and this has been the case with every single one of them, but I'm still always taken aback when the mutual attraction between the male and female happens within the first few pages. Then the rest of the book is about the week or so it takes for them to decide they need to spend the rest of their lives together. Again, my dislike of this probably has more to do with the fact I shouldn't be reading these types of romance novels.I did like the Colonial Williamsburg setting. That was a nice touch, and a lot of detail went into the descriptions and with the characters interacting with the town.I also kind of hated the families forcing the pair into a relationship. It just seemed odd everyone was so gung-ho about them getting together after they hadn't known each other for more than a few days.

    I'm digging these quick Janet Evanovich books as bedtime books. They are light and fluffy and don't make my head spin when I'm trying to sleep. I'm glad I have several more to read. I'm also sharing them with my mother who is enjoying the quick reads as well. She's a much faster reader than I am so I have to stay a few ahead of her!Thanksgiving is a cute book. It's one of the 9 fluffy romances that are being re-released. Thanks to a wayward rabbit, Megan Murphy, an artist, meets Patrick Hunter, a pediatrician. Sparks fly of course. When a young single mother leaves her baby boy with Patrick and who she thinks is "Mrs. Hunter", Meg and Pat are forced to work together to take care of the baby with their competing schedules.The book takes place around Thanksgiving which is only a catalyst to get both families together to start planning the wedding. The only problem is Patrick isn't sure he's ready to get married and Megan doesn't want to get married. Ever.It's not going to go on any "best of" lists but if you are looking for a book to read on the long drive to Grandma's house for Thanksgiving dinner, this is a good one.

    Strangers, artist-temporarily-employed-as-a-historical-reenactor Megan Murphy and young doctor Patrick Hunter are left holding a baby for the holidays. Now they're battling sleepless nights and a growing attraction - and their families are about to descend expecting a old-fashioned, traditional Thanksgiving dinner with all the trimmings. A re-issue of one of twelve romance novels Evanovich wrote prior to the success of her Stephanie Plum series. The outcome is predictable - read it for the hilarity that ensues along the way to true love.

    I read this in a little over 2 hours up at the National Park Inn at Longmire. I was curled up in front of a huge fireplace so the setting was right for a great read. Sadly, this was a sub-par offering from Janet Evanovich. (I didn't have much of a choice at the gift shop.) The characters lacked any real depth and I was constantly wondering why the heck they would do what they did. Light and easy read, but Evanovich can (and has) done much better.

    Yaaawwwwn.I really enjoy Evanovich's Stephanie Plum novels and have enjoyed some of the reprints of her early books, but unfortunately this wasn't one of them.It was all too clear that this was a very early effort by Evanovich and it's one I think should've been left in the land of out-of-print and best-forgotten.
  • (3/5)
    This book has senses of Evanovich's trademark humor, but you can tell it's one of her earlier works. It lacks the same punch that the Stephanie Plum series offers and the romance is a bit trite. She has certainly put out better work, but it was a good quick read nonetheless.
