BOOK REVIEW

WICKED APPETITE by Janet Evanovich
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: Sept. 14, 2010

"Instead of the slapdash mysteries Stephanie solves, there's a frantic pursuit of the paranormal. Fans attracted by the comic-book plotting and pacing will doubtless re-enlist for the pursuit of the other six Stones."

BOOK REVIEW

NOTORIOUS NINETEEN by Janet Evanovich
FICTION & LITERATURE

"The usual generous mixture of transparent mystery, R-rated fantasies and standup comedy—paced like a Road Runner cartoon drawn out to feature length—that makes Evanovich the gold standard of her subgenre."
Stephanie Plum, Trenton's gift to skip tracing (Explosive Eighteen, 2011, etc.), takes on a terrorist threatening a bridal pair, the sinister forces behind multiple disappearances from Central Hospital and the usual glut of Failures to Appear. Read full book review >

MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: June 19, 2001

"It'll do for the army of true-blue fans, but it's not the one to use as a recruiting tool."

BOOK REVIEW

PLUM LOVIN’ by Janet Evanovich
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: Jan. 9, 2007

"Just the thing for panting fans who can't wait for Stephanie's 13th numbered case. And if this bonbon is even less substantial than her customary fare, well, Valentine's Day isn't really such a major holiday, is it?"
Just what Trenton's favorite bounty-hunter needed: a stint playing Cupid's helper as the hours tick down to Valentine's Day. Read full book review >

BOOK REVIEW

TO THE NINES by Janet Evanovich
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: July 15, 2003

"The plot is—as usual—a shambles, but the people and their dialogue are as sharp and funny as ever. Though no high point in Stephanie's saga, this installment, like a weekly sitcom fix, won't disappoint her fans either."
"Nothing defeats us in Jersey," says Stephanie Plum—not smog, the Mob, heart-threatening cuisine, or, this time, a killer who's set his sights on Trenton's least likely bounty hunter (Hard Eight, 2002, etc.). Read full book review >

BOOK REVIEW

Released: Jan. 8, 2013

"Though details such as Caroline's fondness for chocolate cake may endear her to hungry readers, the characters aren't meaty or distinctive enough to dig into, leaving Evanovich and Kelly (Love in a Nutshell, 2012) on safe but familiar ground."
Will a young woman defy her mother and all society to be with the man she loves? Read full book review >

BOOK REVIEW

CURIOUS MINDS by Janet Evanovich
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: Aug. 16, 2016

"What's missing from the usual Evanovich solo and duet performances is low comedy. Beneath the obligatory trappings of the hero's non sequiturs and pet armadillo, there's surprisingly little in this wildly overscaled caper to tickle the funny bone."
Nancy Drew meets Goldfinger in this series kickoff from the indefatigable Evanovich and Emmy-winning TV writer Sutton. Read full book review >

BOOK REVIEW

TWELVE SHARP by Janet Evanovich
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: June 20, 2006

"Evanovich wisely soft-pedals the mystery, which has never been her strong suit, and finds exactly the right tone of danger-laden farce for Stephanie's duel with the false Ranger, spicing it with a million one-liners, aspiring bond enforcers and hapless criminals on the run."
Trenton's most renowned bounty hunter (Eleven on Top, 2005, etc.) becomes the prey of a delusional stalker. Read full book review >

BOOK REVIEW

HARD EIGHT by Janet Evanovich
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: June 18, 2002

"For loyalists only."
Stephanie Plum, Trenton's dizziest, most dysfunctional skip tracer, has papers on a couple of wacko Failure to Appears, but fat Marty Paulson and skinny Andy Bender are humdrum bizarros compared to the sociopath about to enter her life: loan shark/murderer Eddie Abruzzo, whom Steph perceives as a "total fruitcake" the instant her fear and trembling subside.
