Love in a Nutshell
 
The #1 bestselling Janet Evanovich teams up with award-winning author Dorien Kelly to deliver a sparkling novel of romantic suspense, small-town antics, secretive sabotage, and lots and lots of beer.

Kate Appleton needs a job. Her husband has left her, she's been fired as a magazine editor, and she's got nothing left but the Nutshell-her parents' summer house in Keene's Harbor, Michigan. Kate hopes to turn the Nutshell into a bed-and-breakfast. Problem is, she needs cash, and the only job she can find involves beer and espionage.

Matt Culhane wants Kate to spy on his brewery employees. Someone has been sabotaging his company, and if Kate finds the culprit, Matt will pay her a $20,000 bonus. Unfortunately, Kate despises beer, her co-workers don't trust her-and she's falling hard for her boss. Can these two smoke out a saboteur, save Kate's B&B, and keep a killer from closing in…all while resisting their undeniable attraction to one another?
