Professional cellist Kate Finn and her next-door neighbor, lottery winner David Dodd, meet cute when the camera pod from a helicopter drops from the sky, making a large hole in Kate’s roof, smashing her (thankfully empty) bed, and ruining her brand-new and extremely expensive goose-down quilt. This comic contemporary romance, set in a high-rent Washington, D. C., neighborhood, was written by the author of the bestselling Stephanie Plum mystery series and coauthor of the Full romantic suspense series.
Back to the Bedroom was a wonderful book to listen to. I have never laughed so hard at a book in my life. The scenes, circumstances, everything was just perfect (or perfectly set up for disaster) from beginning to end. I enjoyed the story very much. Kate and Dave’s relationship is perfect, and beautiful. Dave is what every women would want out of a man; understanding, patient, funny, smart, romantic. This is setting aside the fact that he is filthy stinkin rich! I don’t know what else to say about this book. I can’t help but sing it’s praise. It’s just a simple, lovely, hilarious story.
I suggest the audio book version, the reader is wonderful, and I suspect made half of it for me, although I’m sure the book was funny without her as well. The character interaction is exactly what I crave in every book I have. You have perfect description of every scene without long wordy descriptive paragraphs. You got to know the characters, the neighborhood, the circumstances – and it was short, sweet and to the point. My favorite scene was dinner with Kate’s parents, and single hilarious thing that happened throughout that dinner. I’m sure my co-workers were peering over their cubes at me. I loved it, and will most certainly be seeking out more Janet Evanovich books in the future!
