Knock Me Off My Feet Knock Me Off My Feet by Susan Donovan

Very cute book. Could not put it down. It was a chicklit book but with some suspense because someone is sending the heroine threatening letters. But that is more of a background story to the relationship between the hero and heroine. I had never read her before and now I have to go find more of her books, I think this was her first book (she has more out now). The characters were very good, they had a good development of faults and strengths. And there was great quick dialogue between the characters. It was a really good book.

The story is about Autumn Adams (called Audie) who has inherited her mother's housekeeping advice column and image that goes by the name of Homey Helen after her mother's death. She hates it. Martha Stewart she is not. She is a cluttered sports fanatic. But she has been receiving wierd letters from someone that have turned threatening. Enter hunky Detective Stacey Quinn (how Irish can you get, his brothers are Patrick and Michael). He is charmed by her and wants to get to know her better, much better. Of course, Stacey is her opposite (besides the sports thing). He is a neat freak who plays the bagpipes for the police bagpipe band. Yes, he does wear a kilt when he plays and there is a great scene after the concert.
Between finding whoever is threatening her and his boss threatening to fire him if he fraternizes with her, will they oversome their issues to be together?
