Fish out of Water by Josie Watts and Janice Whiteaker

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Get a new job. Check.
Find a new apartment. Check.
Stake out geriatric hit men with my handsome sidekick. Check?

Never rent an apartment over the internet.
I learned that lesson the hard way. Turns out the sweet two bedroom I was thrilled to make mine is actually smack dab in the middle of a retirement community.
Now instead of enjoying Florida’s night life, I’m helping Mrs. Hill find her missing hearing aids and showing Mr. Frazier how to use his television remote for the millionth time.
But it’s fine. They look out for me and I look out for them.
Which is how I end up wedged in a broom closet with Mr. Frazier’s sexy as sin nephew.
Being tangled up with Grant is the most exciting thing that’s happened to me in… ever.
Unfortunately, it’s the most dangerous thing to happen to me in… also ever.
Because I thought Grant was just a grumpy businessman with an addiction to gummy bears, but based on his abilities in hand-to-hand combat, I’m starting to question if there’s more to that story.
And if that more might be the end of my story.

My Review

This romantic comedy story is fabulous, funny, and very action-packed with a mystery to solve and some intriguing events. Grant and Julia are matches made in heaven, his family is funny and fierce, and I absolutely loved this read. The entire story takes place in Florida. I love the inclusion of the retirement community and small town. This book ends happily, and all the problems are solved; it is a light-hearted read with a bit of steam.

Julia scored an exciting apartment in the middle of a retirement community. Now she gets to deal with the people at all times of the day or night. One of her late-night visitors, Mr. Frazier, seems a little stranger than most and starts the mystery in this book.

She has a penchant for disaster in the most epic ways, and I can just visualize some of this as I am reading. We meet Grant, the great nephew of her neighbor, and things get heated and suspenseful.

The things from Julia’s mouth are so witty and fantastic that you can’t help but laugh. I love the banter between her and Grant. Can they find his uncle, keep their hands on each other, and stay safe while they figure this out?

Things get hot and dangerous, and some very memorable scenes take place. The actual Grant is impressive when he loses his finely guarded control. I also love how unique and unapologetically weird Juila is; she is refreshing. Grant is screwed when he finally admits Julia is a catch; there is no going back. His grandmother is hilarious. I haven’t laughed that hard in a while. They do solve the mystery, and the story ending is sweet.
