      Dear Janet Evanovich,I stopped reading you a while back, when it seemed like you were floundering and had no clue what to do with your series and it was really getting pretty embarrassing But this week I ve needed something that was all candy, no brain, and you were there And well It seems like you ve found something to do with your series But it s obvious that you don t understand what that is.I know I know it can be hard to pay attention to all the subtleties, the subtext of what you re writin [...]

      What I learned from this book is that if you have a million dollar book contract, you can pretty much just list junk food, articles of clothing, and expensive cars and call it a book I don t ask for a great plot from a Stephanie Plum adventure or I never would have got past the 5th book in the series I read these books because Stephanie is funny and eats the way most people over 14 can only dream of eating Some of the previous books have been thinner and less satisfying than others, but this one [...]

      It s official everyone hates the cable company It turns out that the guy Stephanie is trying to catch for missing his court date can t leave his house because the cable company is supposed to appear sometime between now and the Apocalypse and he needs to be at home Of course, the minute you go to the bathroom they show up, knock once, and then leave a note on the door and take off like they are fleeing a crime scene The guy knows how this works His neighbor needed his cable fixed and it took fiv [...]

      I gotta say, I NEVER thought I d give a novel 5 stars My friend Alisa bought the first book in this series for me about 2 years ago I was visiting home and she and I were out having fun and stopped into a bookstore and she said, Have you read these They re good I think you d like her writing style Um, right I m thinking no way will I like some chick lit novel BUT Alisa has known me just about forever and knows me very well Then Alisa said, You need something to read on the plane home and you cou [...]

      I m listening to Lean Mean Thirteen on cd at work Twice today I burst into laughter and had to fake a coughing fit to disguise my inappropriate behavior The line I stapled him in the balls completely undid me.Finished it Liked it Laughed a lot HoweverI m getting a little tired of all the Ranger calls her Babe stuff I mean, is it really necessary for her to have two hot guys battling for her attention I d like it better if Ranger fell heavy in love with someone else and he and Steph became just t [...]

    10. Dawnie on said:

      What I can say about this series that is very positive is that the writing let s you read those books in one sitting and be done before you even know it Which if you start such a book where it just gets plain ridiculous, it helps to not put it down and actually think about what the heck you are currently reading it never surprises the reader at least not in the big plot kind of ways, because the actual story plot Very easy and so similar to what we already read about at least five times in books [...]

    11. Alexw on said:

      Evanovich NEVER disappoints and the only thing betteer than her witty banter dialogue is the situations that her characters find themslves in If you need a good laugh pick up any of the Stephanie Plum books by Evanovich and ENJOY

      5 Pretty Little Stars Janet Evanovich NEVER lets me down with her Stephanie Plum novels For me, they could never get old Whenever I am looking for something light, funny, and known for its entertainment value I pick up a Plum novel I know some people think that her work in terms of this series is getting old, but if she stopped publishing these novels I think people would miss them For all I care she can write 100 of them and I will read them all Clearly, I really enjoyed this installment of the [...]

    13. Dagny on said:

      Another great fun read in the Stephanie Plum series The cases and mystery were interesting with a different twist In the series, each Friday night dinner at the parents home seems humorous than in the previous book The last few have been so funny that I wondered how Evanovich could continue ramping up the laugh factor She managed in Lean Mean Thirteen.

      This was one of my favorites in the series It has the same great cast and characters The section in which everyone has the same reaction about their cable company is priceless Of course it s the same opinion and probably the same as we all feel about ours, ha One of the FTA s that Stephanie tries to capture is a taxidermist If you ve read previous books in the series you can probably surmise that things will get a little hairy Never fear, after the repeated stunnings that Joyce Barnhart has give [...]

    16. Gloria Mccracken on said:

      Ah, Stephanie, you and I are breaking up You probably won t even notice with two hotties like Morelli and Ranger inexplicably besotted with you Perhaps it s the horrible fascination with which car you ll blow up next or what might written on your underwear or how you ll injure and or humiliate the odd professional thug who comes your way And then there s your grandmotherOh, you re funny enough, I ll grant you that But really, after 13 books couldn t you have learned ANYTHING that might make you [...]

    17. Terri on said:

      The Stephanie Plum series is definitely in decline While this novel has a promising plot Stephanie s ex husband disappears, and she s a suspect , the storyline is just plain flat, mainly because the author insists on borrowing scenes and dialogues from her previous Plum books.I didn t even have much interest in the main characters, who have had virtually no character development in the last several books.I m really starting to feel as though Evanovich is just phoning it in these days Sad This us [...]

      A bunch of us girls who love this series went on a road trip to meet the author and have this book signed when it came out Though I love this entire series, a bit let down by this book It may of had to do with the fact that the author was a TOTAL LET DOWN No personality and not warm in anyway I wasn t expecting her to bow down and thank our group for spending hundreds of dollars on her books over the years or thank us for telling everyone we knew to read them as well I was just expecting a smile [...]

    19. Sg on said:

      A reasonable read I guess I wanted something light and easy to read, following the previous book I read Janet s books are a good reliable option and this one didn t disappoint.

      I love how sections of these books make me laugh out loud.Totally unbelievable situations, but good for comedic effect.

    23. Chy on said:

      I m really tired of hearing that Stephanie was married to Dickie for about fifteen minutes before she found him with Joyce on the table And that about fifteen minutes after that, Stephanie filed for divorce.But I m tired of a lot of the things that get said over and over in each book to catch up anyone who might not have read the upteen books that came before.But no No, I don t really mind because they re usually contained in a paragraph immediately following a cue that says, This next paragraph [...]

      One of my favorite lines from this book.Ranger talking to Stephanie Babe, you ve destroyed a car, burned down two buildings, stapled a guy s nuts, and you have sixteen stitches in your leg Take a night off Have a glass of wine, watch some television, and go to bed early.
