Foul Play by Janet Evanovich

Amy Klasse is having a bad day. She has just been fired from her stint as LuLu the Clown on a children's program and been replaced by a dancing chicken. She stops at the grocery store on the way home and her skirt gets caught in the door. She makes it inside and proceeds to knock over a cantaloupe stand and smash her eggs. As if the day couldn't get any worse, she goes to checkout and realizes she left her wallet in her purse in her locker at the TV station!

Jake Elliot can't believe it. He just got sucker punched by love. He had just pulled up in the grocery parking lot and this woman stole his parking stop. As she gets out of the car, she gets her skirt caught in the door and Jake is gone. He never believed in love at first sight but now he does. He follows her into the store and watches her knock over and smash things. When he realizes she doesn't have her wallet, he sees his opportunity to meet and rescue her.

At first Amy is hesitant to accept this stranger's help. But after reassurances from the other shoppers that Jake is a good guy, Amy gives in. She offers to cook him dinner. Over dinner Jake offers Amy a job at his veterinarian clinic as a receptionist. Amy agrees and starts work the next day. What happens next is a robbery, a chicken-napping, spying and some falling in love.

This was a cute story. If you want something light and fluffy to read, this would be the book. Just another Janet Evanovich fix until Stephanie Plum returns!
