This one has to be the best one. I reminded me of the reasons why I fell in love with this series: the hilarious graphic detail of the mishaps and the subtle sexual innuendos. Loved the cliffhanger.
Another funny installment of this series. Stephanie's life makes me tired! I would love to see the storyline progress though. Pick a man! Marry him! Kids! The storylines that would come from these milestones would be priceless entertainment! But I keep reading, knowing that the outline is the same, because they still make me laugh.
People are going missing and leaving only a shoe behind. Steph and Lula end up working at a deli and are as adept at that as they are at bounty hunting. The whole group comes together to solve the mystery and Grandma Mazur has a surprise for Stephanie at the end.

Total guilty pleasure! I must have needed a Lula fix. I just have to check in every once in a while.
I was glad grandma Mazur made an appearance at the end. I was beginning to think maybe I had missed something in the last year or so.
The real story didn't start at least for me until Ranger was front and centre. He os the most interest character. What Morelli and Ranger see in Stephanie is not clear. She does not grow. I will pass n any more ot these books. They are all the same, and ther are better stories out there to spend my time on.
Ugh. I have been reading these books for almost 20 years. I love Stephanie, Morelli, Ranger and the whole crazy gaggle of other characters. This one was a disappointment. The adventure wasn‘t as funny, and many of the characters that keep me coming back were only in the book a little or not at all. But my biggest peeve is that Evanovich either has forgotten what happened in the last book or doesn‘t care. More marked spoiler below. 👇 ⭐️⭐️/5. 😔
What happened? I was getting tired of the Ranger/Morelli stuff, but at least Lula and Grandma Mazur made the books hilarious. This one was awful. No grandma at all, stilted humor and no car drama? I think I‘m finally done with this series 😢
I normally am a book monogamist, but I‘ve currently got 3 going! I don‘t want to go any further in my book club book until closer to our meeting date and I have an audiobook going (trying to train my brain to listen to audiobooks), and now I‘m starting this one because I don‘t want to read ahead in the book club book. 🤷♀️📚❤️ I‘m a tried & true Evanovich fan, but didn‘t fully enjoy the last installment of this series. 🤞this one is better.
Book 666. 😂 Really I passed that number ages ago. Noticed I've never marked Books 1 - 19 as read. All Pre -Goodreads. As for 25, Bailed on series awhile back but was gift so I checked back in. There's been a rumor going around about these books being ghost written that I had thought just gossip. But this one made me wonder. At times writing style seemed off. Same ole Ranger/Morelli Triangle. Why would either of them bother is beyond me.
I‘m sorry but our time together has come to an end. While I think this book is better than the last, your series no longer sparks joy for me. I was happy with Stephanie and her life as is, including her indecision between Morelli and Ranger. I didn‘t care for the addition of Diesel or, in this one, Wolf. It felt like you needed to hit a word count and threw in a pointless character. Peace out. #E #LitsyAtoZ #seriesbreakup #teamranger
Ahhh...Stephanie Plum...you just never change. Reliability can be a good thing but 25 books in, not so much. I apparently keep fooling myself that Plum will grow or pick a man already. Formulaic as per usual, however I'm thinking that Evanovich either started reading the bad reviews or got a new ghost writer 'cause this wasn't as bad as the last 5-6. Still good for a beach read and an easy title to add to number for my Goodreads challenge.
Meh. I‘m not sure if my kindle had the whole book- the ending seemed totally unlike her normal style. I might have to hit a bookstore to check it out. And, there was nothing really funny throughout the whole book. Oh well. #LitsyAtoZ #LetterL #seriesread #ReadingUSA2019 #NewJersey
After a zombie filled #24 my hopes were not high (they haven‘t been for some time now with this series - and yet I keep reading them) but maybe the ghostwriter has changed? The tone of this book was different - less scathing towards its female characters, an actual plot - still no character development but at least no character acting out of what is believable for their character. Also no cars exploded.
First finished book in 2019 and first challenge book #booked2019 #femaledetective
The Plum novels have become repetitive and while this was wasn‘t a huge departure from the tried and true it still felt a little different because her family was not a centerpiece of the narrative. This is certainly more of a feel good story than a good mystery. @BarbaraTheBibliophage @4thhouseontheleft @Cinfhen
This will be my last book for 2018 and I absolutely loved it! I know a lot of people have become tired of this series, but I always love the familiar feel of them. I laughed so hard at some points in the book and the characters always bring a smile to my face. A great way to end the 2018 reading year!
I don‘t know why I keep reading these, they haven‘t been really good in a while. They are silly and pretty pointless and nothing very happens but it‘s not a complete waste of a listen. It was short and I smirked a few times. Also it was from the library so no money lost. If you are a fan of the series it‘s fine, but not great. #series #comedy
I never expect a lot from this series anymore. It was definitely stronger earlier. Yet, I can't help myself—I always look forward to the new release, and I always read it as soon as possible.
Definitely not literature but so much fun. Early books are definitely better but I can‘t give them up. My only complaints are; not enough Grandma and no viewings. 😂🤣
I took a lunch break just to finish this book. It was okay - not one of the strongest, though I may be getting a little tired of the same love triangle. A few laugh out loud moments.
I've read all her books and I so like them. This one wasn't anything spectacular compared to the others but it was on par with an entertaining read that's right up my alley
Utterly ridiculous and predictable, but still SO MUCH FUN. 😂 The advantage this series has over Some Other Series I Read is that the characters are still so lovable, even though they‘re getting to be stereotypes of themselves by now. They‘re just FUN. And look, who WOULD be able to choose between Morelli and Ranger??? (...I mean, I‘m a Morelli girl, but the Ranger appeal is strong.) #lookalivetwentyfive #stephanieplum #janetevanovich
Yes, it's formulaic, the characters and relationships show no sign of developing and the story is just another variation on all the stories that have gone before. It's still fun, though, and good for a few laughs along the way.
