Early this morning I finished reading Finger Lickin' Fifteen by Janet Evanovich.
"Unbuckle your belt and pull up a chair. It's the spiciest, sauciest, most rib-sticking plum yet." "Recipe for disaster: Celebrity chef Stanley Chipotle comes to Trenton to participate in a barbecue cook-off and loses his head - literally." "Throw in some spice: Bail bonds office worker Lula is witness to the crime, and the only one she'll talk to is Trenton cop Joe Morelli." "Pump up the heat: Chipotle's sponsor is offering a million-dollar reward to anyone who can provide information leading to the capture of the killers." "Stir the pot: Lula recruits bounty hunter Stephanie Plum to help her find the killers and collect the moolah." "Add a secret ingredient: Stephanie Plum's Grandma Mazur. Enough said." "Bring to a boil: Stephanie Plum is working overtime tracking felons for the bonds office at night and snooping for security expert Carlos Manoso, aka Ranger, during the day. Can Stephanie hunt down two killers, a traitor, and five skips, keep her grandmother out of the sauce, and solve Ranger's problems and not jump his bones?" Warning: Habanero hot. So good you'll want seconds.
Reading a Stephanie Plum novel is like riding a bicycle. Even if it's been a couple of years, its easy to pick up again. I read Fearless Fourteen 3 years ago so I was a little worried if I would be able to get back into Stephanie's world again easily. But I shouldn't have worried. It was like catching up with an old friend. I had forgotten how much I laughed out loud while reading these books. No, there's nothing amazing about them but they're comforting. And fun. And funny. And I love them!
I had forgotten how easily I got caught up in the Morelli vs Ranger dilemna (Yum to both of them!) And how much I loved Grandma Mazur and Lula! Both of them are kick-butt!
These books really are the perfect summer reads and I can't wait to dive into Sizzling Sixteen!
I gave this book a rating of 4.5/5.
