I would try another Evanovich book, but think it is time to retire Stephanie Plum.
So predictable. No forward movement in her love life. The only thing new is that Morelli blew up his car for a change.
Loreli King does fine with what she had to work with.
Whats to tell I am your avarage 30something, with kids, a husband, job and life. Besides that I drive a lot and love to listen to books instead of the radio. I will stay up until 3am in bed listening if the book is worth it, and I have also been known to return a couple of books that I could not get threw the first chapter. I am a bad speller so I apoligize for it now, but will be honest about my reviews.
This book was ok, since I love the narrator I would pick up the next one, but there were not any surprises in this book. it did seem to be the same old stuff. I think we need something new and exciting. The characters are great dont get me wrong, I wish I could eat like steph and still be able to fit threw the door but I think by this time in the series she would at least have her love life figured out or make it more steamy for us listeners. I think this was still good writing but not a lot of substance. Credit not well spent, rent from library, or catch it on sale.
The entry into the system is most typical and very good. That being said, I had enough of Morelli and Ranger but it needed a little more Lula. My favorite of the series involved the Gordo, and I know it can't be brought back so add a little more Lula to help me not miss it so much. Long live Vincent Plum Bail Bonds.
Stephanie Plum & the rest of the characters are great and I love the way the narrator portrays them! I've read/listened to all of the books in this series many times & always look forward to the next book!
Fast paced action.
Morrelli said "I Love You". Cannot make up her mind.
How many cars can one person blow up and still find insurance?
I have been a fan for number of years and I have read all of her Stephanie Plum series. This was more of the same with no surprises. I think it is time to allow Stephanie to pick a life mate and retire the series. Janet Evanovich is a very funny writer and i have laughed outloud reading some of her books in this series. I will try another series and I am sure that I will be laughing again!
I will not be buying anymore Stephanie Plum book--unless it indicates that she finally marries!!
Very realistic--just like I think it should be.
On its own-probably. But since I have read all 18 of the previous novels--not so much.
High on the enjoyment list...just plain fun, light and entertaining.
Not really, the plots of these books are not real good mysteries but I am OK with that because I enjoy the characters.
No, I listened over a few days, spread out the fun. It isn't a page turning thriller that you want to gobble up all at one time. Trite expression, it is what it is, and I enjoy that and look forward to the next book.
YES. THE STORY LINE WAS GREAT AND ENTERTAINING. lOREILEI KING, READS VERY WELL. HOLDS YOUR INTEREST. GREAT CHARACTER VOICES.
Of course Loula,
I would recommend this book, author, and reader. As an Arts and Crafter, which I work with my hands, it's important to me to have a good book and reader while I am working. My Granddaughter has work with me for 3 years, she loves the books.
I have read/listened to all of the Stephanie Plum series and was excited to listen to this one. It was an easy listen but not much different than her last few books.
Notorious Nineteen is right along with the last three books in the Stephanie Plum series...Just Okay. No big thrills here.
