I was actually a bit nervous to read this book because Iíd read so many bad reviews of it. Fellow fans of Evanovichís Stephanie Plum series (books like Four to Score and Seven Up) complained that Full House wasnít the same old Stephanie Plum book.

But itís not supposed to be.

Full House is one of Evanovichís earlier works -- one thatís been reworked and expanded and republished -- and itís not bad nearly as bad as Plum fans may say. Instead of the typical slapstick-mystery-humor found in Plum novels, Full House is a light romance about Billie Pearce, a divorced mother of two whose life is turned upside-down when she meets millionaire newspaperman and ladiesí man Nick Kaharchek -- and falls head over heels for him. And before she has a moment to think about whatís going on, sheís housing Nickís crazy cousin, Deedee, and fighting off Nickís jealous ex-fiancee, who seems determined to get him back.

If youíre looking for a serious romance novel, this isnít for you. But if youíre looking for a light, easy, entertaining read, Full House wouldnít be a bad pick. Thereís humor and a little bit of mystery -- and even a few professional wrestlers. The characters arenít quite as real and fun as in Evanovichís Plum novels -- in fact, Billieís constant waffling is a bit annoying (though, to be honest, her constantly changing inner monologue is pretty accurate for a woman). But donít trust the reviews from bitter Plum fans. Full House isnít a bad book at all -- though if youíre a Plum fan, you do need to keep an open mind.
