Stephanie Plum is back in the latest Janet Evanovich novel, sure to make you laugh out loud.  Along with office manager Connie and the fabulous former ho Lula, Stephanie sets out to rescue Vinny, her bail bonds employer and sleazy cousin, who is being held hostage until someone will pay his six figure gambling debt to the local mobster.  The three women hatch outlandish plots to raise the cash, including stink bombing the local mortuary and hosting a fire sale at the bail bonds office.  …

It may be time to put this series to bed...
   I think I'm getting to the end of the trail with my enjoyment of the Stephanie Plum novels by Janet Evanovich.  The latest installment, Sizzling Sixteen, hit me the same way that Finger Lickin' Fifteen did.  It covers the same ground we've covered in the last fifteen installments, nothing really new happens, and the characters don't have the spark that used to make each new Plum novel a joy to read.  Unless Evanovich takes Plum in a whole new direction …

My cousin Vinny
   Steph's back, bumbling along in her life, in which nothing ever changes. This time around, her sleazebag cousin Vinny, who's also her boss, has been kidnapped for failing to make good on his gambling losses, which amount to more than a cool million. Sixteen has its amusing moments, which include hobbits, and alligator, and Uzis, but for the most part, there's little to differentiate this book from the fifteen earlier installments. Steph still can't make a choice between …

I always knew that New Jersey was a very strange state, and the Stephanie Plum series of novels reinforces that opinion. Within the pages of these books we find all kinds of wierd and wacky people, strange and often exotic animals, dangerous (and often extremely funny) felons, and disfunctional family life. What more could anyone ask for light reading, especially in the summertime?    I realize that many reviewers are tiring of the almost repetitive folks and incidents in these …

PLUM PERFECT NARRATION BY LORELEI KING
Few books are as eagerly awaited as the next in the Stephanie Plum series, and here 'tis - SIZZLING SIXTEEN. Of course, it wouldn't really be Stephanie unless her voice is that of Lorelei King who seems to not only be more at home but better and better with each successive narration of the Plum stories (this is the 14th to be read by the award-winning voice performer.)      As Publishers Weekly once said of King's Plum readings, "King enhances the humor of this …

Pros: Amusing     Cons: A bit too ridiclous, got kind of boring.     The Bottom Line: This book is the one that will make you wonder – is Janet Evanovich going to wrap up the series sometime soon to move on to other things?     As usual, if you don’t know anything about this series, scroll to the end and click on the first book. This is #16 in the series so you’re better starting at the beginning.    Stephanie …
