Synopsis:Readers back for a third round of the bestselling Cocktail series will enjoy a madcap romantic comedy about bodice ripping and chest heaving, fiery passion and love everlasting. Plus a dash of paperwork filing and horseshi—wait, what? By day, Viv Franklin is a tough-as-nails software engineer who designs programs and loves hospital corners. By night, Vivian’s a secret romance-novel junkie who longs for a knight in shining armor, or a cowboy on a wild stallion, or a strapping firefighter to sweep her off her feet. And she gets to wear the bodice—don’t forget the bodice. When a phone call brings news that she’s inherited a beautiful old home in Mendocino, California from a long-forgotten aunt, she moves her entire life across the country to embark on what she sees as a great, romance-novel-worthy adventure. But romance novels always have a twist, don’t they? There’s a cowboy, one that ignites her loins. Because Cowboy Hank is totally loin-ignition worthy. But there’s also a librarian, Clark Barrow. And he calls her Vivian. Can tweed jackets and elbow patches compete with chaps and spurs? You bet your sweet cow pie. In Screwdrivered, Alice Clayton pits Superman against Clark in a hilarious and hot battle that delights a swooning Viv/Vivian. Also within this book, an answer to the question of the ages: Why ride a cowboy when you can ride a librarian?
Review:I am absolutely in LOVE with this series... Alice Clayton know how to make such a wonderful romantic comedy that you are laughing crying and falling in love all at the same time. We met Viv earlier in the series as Simon's (our favorite Wallbanger) friend. So I was extremely happy when I learned she was getting her own book, and what a book it was. Viv is a lovable wild adventurous woman who throws the town historian/librarian for a loop and the results are hilarious.... Lets just say I will never look at balustrades the same again. This series is absolutely amazing.... If you are already a fan then you know you want to read this one...If you haven't started this series, well you don;t have to read the previous books to read this one as it's a standalone but the characters are so much fun that you will love all of the books!
