My New Book Review & Giveaway Is At Smexy Books-Maybe This Time by Jennifer Crusie

Todays review is Maybe This Time by Jennifer Crusie.

Andie Miller just wants to marry her fiance and get on with her life. But her ex husband needs just one tiny favor from her. He has “inherited” two children and needs some serious help. The 3rd nanny has flown the coop and he needs someone to go down there and find out what’s going on. Once Andie gets down there she realizes this is more then one tiny favor. The kids are a bit odd, the house is a wreck, and the housekeeper is creepy. Andie’s fiance thinks this is all a ploy by her ex to get her back. As Andie tries to save the kids and deal with a house full of craziness she thinks he may be right.

In Jennifer Crusie’s first solo book out in 6 years, Maybe This Time, we are treated to the classic Crusie style with a delicious twist. A snarky PNR suspense  that had me hooked and laughing from page one.

Andie Miller approaches her ex husband North Archer to return her alimony checks. 10 years worth. She wants a fresh start with her fiance and feels that returning the checks will give her that. Instead of  just accepting the checks back, North asks a favor. He needs someone to go check on his young cousins.  He was been made their guardian after their parents died but all his nannies keep quiting. He feels Andie is the only one who can reach these kids. He also offers her $10,000 for a month of her time. $10,000 would get Andie out of debt so she agrees. Once she arrives at the house, she realizes that things are very wrong here. As Andie attempts to befriend the kids and deal with the multiple personalities of the housekeeper; she is dismayed to find that ghosts are real and want her out of their house. Dead or alive.
