While written before the Plum novels the sharing of the authorship appear to have raised this book to above those of her earlier work. This was a novel worth bothering about. It is ofcourse what we would expect from evanaovich, a lighthearted romance. In this book she does manage to get teh sparkel between the characters to go off a little.
Not as good as the Plunm novels but if I had not read them I would still have reccomended this one ( )

Full House is about Billie a single mother of two and Nick a wealthy playboy who is using her. He falls in love with her while they are acting like a couple. Nicks family is a little crazy and things go horribly wrong on the wedding day. A great book that has me looking forward to the rest of the series. I haven't felt like this about her series since the begining of the Stephanie Plum series.

I adore Evanovich's writing and her colourful characters. This book is written in conjunction with her friend Charlotte Hughes and, yes, this does make a the style notably different. It's more chick lit than Evanovich's Plum novels and written much earlier, but not at all disappointing.

Billie Pearce is a divorced mother of two who teaches sixth grade. While her young children are away for the hols with her ex, she decides she wants to impress them by taking up polo. The sexy polo teacher happens to be the tall, dark, handsome (and rich) Nick Kaharchek. While he is fascinated by her complete and utter lack of co-ordination, he has bigger problems. His two crazy cousins are staying with him - one, a 16 year old boy, keeps blowing things up. The other, an ex-beauty queen, is about to get married.

He coerces Billie into taking in the ex-beauty queen, telling himself that it's for her safety (who knows what a teenager with explosives is capable of?). But that's only part of the reason. Stowing his cousin with her will give him an excuse to see her...

Of course, because this is an Evanovich novel, there has to be crime and drama and interesting villains that make you laugh out loud and lovable well-rounded characters you can't help but miss once you've turned the final page.

Luckily, this is the first in a series of "Full" novels. While it stands entirely on its own, it leaves you craving more of the quick-witted, fast paced adventure that Evanovich loves to offer.

Unlike most fiction in this genre, all the characters are well-rounded and memorable, the situations are believable and while there may be a touch of fantasy when it comes to rambling mansions, sensitive millionaires and horse riding lessons, it's aaalmost plausible. Plausible enough, in any case, to make for a great read. ( )

Epigraph
Dedication
This book is for my fans—for those of you who have been with me since the very beginning, and who have asked me to get one of my early (1989) romance novels, Full House, into print again, and for all of you who wanted to see what my early books looked like, and who have asked me to put Full House into print so that you can read it for the first time. As I read this book again, it was interesting for me to take a trip down memory lane and see my writer’s roots. Some things haven’t changed—I still like a good slapstick joke, and I’d rather laugh than cry. Some things have—I’m a lot sneakier, my plotting is a lot more intricate, and my characters spend a lot less time kissing and a whole lot more time dodging bullets these days. I’ve gone back an enlarged this book with the help of my good friend Charlotte Hughes. And Charlotte and I will continue to work together on future stories. All of you fans asked me for it—so here it is. Just for you—enjoy.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0312983271, Mass Market Paperback)

Filled with Evanovich's trademark style and wit, Full House is romantic suspense with a twist...

Her life was pleasant, proper, and predictable-- until he showed up and trouble moved in...

Polo instructor Nicholas Kaharchek senses danger the minute he sees Billie Pearce. She represents everything he's so artfully avoided. Happy in her home life, a divorced mother of two, Billie is the epitome of stability. They have nothing in common.

To his horror, Nick is fascinated-- and irresistibly attracted. When Billie generously offers to share her home with Nick's crazy cousin Deedee for a while, Nick finds himself visiting-- often. And while each is slowly seduced by the other's charms, and both are wildly encouraged by devious Deedee, Billie and Nick find out that what they have in common is most important of all. But neither one knows that danger is lurking where they least expect it and a killer is closing in on them.
