“The Grand Finale” was not, in my opinion, one of Janet Evanovich’s best earlier works. The story never quite gelled and moved entirely too quickly to ring true. It’s a G rated romance with lots of quirky humor…maybe just a bit too much.
The story is the tale of a young, divorcee who is struggling to get by with her pizza business while finishing college. Since her first marriage derailed her life plan, she’s now determined to stick with her goals without deviation. And none of those goals involve a hunky, inventor/schoolteacher…no matter how great he looks, and acts, and kisses, and…oh dear!
For me, this was just too lightweight all around. But it is cheery and witty and quick.
