Be willing to empty your cup"
Janet once again proves herself to be the queen of rapier wit and pithy one liners. Lighten up ye critics!!! I too have read the Stephanie Plum series and do not agree that Stephanie and Lizzie are interchangeable. There are some similarities but enough subtle differences that the discernable listener (reader) will be able to appreciate Lizzie. I think as the series progresses she will grow as a character. Yes, I would like to see a little more ???Laura Croft ???in Lizzie but let???s give her time to develop. This is only the beginning. We learn more about Wolf and Diesel???s background, and Glo is nothing like LuLa, more like what Aunt Clara from Bewitched would be like as a teenager. Cat 7143 is an enigma with lots of potential. Team Cat up with Carl the monkey and the possibilities are endless. The series has tremendous potential if Janet is willing to take some risks. Wicked is a combination of Alice Hoffman???s Practical Magic and Indiana Jones. Lizzie and Diesel's search for the ancient relics, which are talismans for the seven deadly sins, is just getting started. This adventure is just the precursor of more hilarious, action-oriented escapades to come!
Not my favorite book by far. Janet Evanovich is one of my favorite writers and this book kind of boring and goofy for my taste. Not her ususal. I'd pass on it.
Diesel belongs in Trenton with Stephanie, not in MA on some improbable magical quest! The entire premise of this story is hard to accept and it's not well enoughed imagined to make it come alive. I love Janet, but this is not her genre and Diesel feels like he's two timing a good and longstanding friend, never a comfortable feeling.
I love Janet's books but there is just something wrong with this entire book. She uses the same person who reads for the Stephanie Plum books so all the way thru the book you think the main character is Stephanie. The ending is ridiculous, well the beginning and middle also. I normally don't write reviews and love most everything I read but this one just needed some feedback.
I have been a fan of Janet's work from the beginning! Stephanie Plum and the other series are fresh fun and great to read/listen to, this was the worst I've ever heard. Slow, boring characters, lots of similar use from other books so bummed about it
I've been following her different book series since I was a teenager wanting a funny book for the beach and all of her different series are wonderful this is the first book of the izzy and desel series that I've already read a few yrs ago but love the magic in it that I had to try the audible book!
