Getting Rid of Bradley by Jennifer Crusie

Synopsis:Lucy Savage is finally getting rid of Bradley-and his hideous green recliner. Bradley is out of her life for good. Or so she thinks. Turns out Officer Zack Warren wants to arrest the very same Bradley for embezzlement and figures the lovely Lucy can lead him straight to his target. Good thing there's a cop around. Because someone shoots at Lucy and then blows up her car. Zack insists she needs twenty-four-hour protection. What does he think her three dogs and attack cat are for? Still, he insists on moving right in to Lucy's house. Now there's danger lurking outside and in her own kitchen, bathroom-and bedroom. Or maybe Zack is just what Lucy needs....

My Thoughts: I haven't read a Jennifer Cruise book yet that I haven't enjoyed. I don't read much in the way of romance books and lean toward funny ones when I do. Cruise's always make me laugh. I love the way Lucie and Zach talk, the banter has some really witty moments. Lucy was a very cute character, green hair and all.

Of course I love the three dogs with personalities of their own, especially Heisenburg, her moppy dog, who plays dead until someone shouts “dead dog." At that, he springs to life wagging his tail. This is his own dog joke. It is too cute and easy for dog lovers to relate to! I had to love Zach for Lucy when he brought her a homeless dog to add to the other three.

If you like cute, quick reads with a little spice thrown in this one is for you.

Love Jennifer Crusie! My favorite is Agnes and the Hitman. I haven't read this one yet though.

I haven't read anything by her. Is it similar to a Janet Evanovich? I love to listen to hers on tape as I drive my 300 mile trek every three weeks or so.
