serial killers can be good cooks?

Like all of her books they are laugh out loud funny. My family would just start laughing at me while I was giggling on the couch. I kind of knew who the killer was half way through the book which was a bit of a bummer but that didn't take away from what the book is - a perfect summer quick read that makes you laugh out loud.

Evanovich painfully prolongs this series by rehashing a very soap opera style formula of more fluff than substance. Sadly her recurring characters, who seem stuck in a time warp, are boring and predictable.

Unfortunately the question of doughnut or cluck-in-a-bucket has become more interesting than the Ranger-or-Morelli debacle. Stephanie needs to grow up or at least take responsibility for a single decision she makes.

This book is still a quick and easy read, but not nearly as entertaining as previous books in this series.

This is my first Stephanie Plum book and I have to say I found it very disappointing. I pulled this book from the New York Best Sellers list expecting a quality read, but in the end it wasn't good at all. There were too many characters introduced at the outset almost as if they were rushed, the relationships felt hollow and forced, Lula, Vince, and Mooner seemed ridiculous and over the top and almost pointless. The end of the book felt like it was there just to finish it off, but really didn't tie everything together. There were some funny parts where I did laugh out loud, but by the end it seemed like such a long time ago with too many cheap jokes following the one or two good ones. Overall I would not recommend this book.

Stephanie is back and as with most books in this series, she is still torn between Morelli and Ranger. Still riding around the Burg with Lulu trying to catch the D grade perps as a bounty hunter. Still driving her Grandma Mazur to viewings at the funeral parlour. Still in the same place she was in book two. There has been very little growth in her or any of the other characters over fifteen books.

And while I enjoy these books like I enjoy my comfy old sweats, I want Stephanie to grow and change. At least get better as a bounty hunter. Still have the crazy perps that only her cousin Vinnie would bailout, but have her be better at taking them down. This might require Evanovich have to create more crazy perps and felons, but it would make for a better book.

Only for the Evanovich fan.

I used to love this series but I am so tired of Janet's repetitive plot devices.

Big fan of this series but I feel like this book is really a two parter with the end of it coming out in late 2011. Also it seemed shorter on humour then some of the previous books.

Enjoyed this one a bunch. Better than the last few.

Once again, another laugh a minute, fast page turner. Be sure to look for the next book- "Explosive Eighteen", this coming November 2011.
