BOOK REVIEW

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

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."

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.

BOOK REVIEW

MOTOR MOUTH by Janet Evanovich
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: Oct. 3, 2006

"About the only person Barney resembles more closely than Nancy Drew, in fact, is Stephanie Plum: the raffish associates, the outlandish scrapes, the sexed-up romance, the smart mouth. Not that there's anything wrong with that."

BOOK REVIEW

PLUM LUCKY by Janet Evanovich
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: Jan. 8, 2008
