About the book:
When Megan Murphy discovered a floppy-eared rabbit gnawing on the hem of her skirt, she meant to give its careless owner a piece of her mind, but Dr. Patrick Hunter was too attractive to stay mad at for long. Soon the two are making Thanksgiving dinner for their families.
Thanksgiving by Janet Evanovich is a contemporary romance that shockingly enough takes place over the Thanksgiving holiday. This one is a fairly quick read that I would warn contains a very fast paced connection between the characters so if insta-love is not your thing you may want to avoid this one.
In the story Megan Murphy finds Dr. Patrick Hunter’s pet rabbit running wild and is of course upset at his carelessness with his pet so intends to give him a piece of her mind when returning the rabbit. Instead, Megan witnesses one of Patrick’s patience drop her child off and ask him to care for the baby so instead of letting him call social services she volunteers to help him out until the mother returns.
I haven’t read too many of Janet Evanovich’s books but this one had the humorous side that I have come across before which I did like. However, I can’t say I completely loved this one with it’s fast pace and Megan being a bit too over the top for me. The plot is a cute idea tossing the couple together in the way that it did though so if it had just toned back a bit of the angst I probably would have rated higher but it was still an Ok read overall.
