Yes. We like to listen to books while travelling, even if not enthralled
Whatever Lola wants...
I loved how Stephanie would be tempted by Ranger but her heart was with Joe.
I really like Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum stories and have read most of the books in the series if not all. The characterization and plot has gotten a little thin the further along the series moves. It feels a bit like Evanovich's joy of writing Stephanie Plum has waned a great deal. This book is better than the last one I read (which may have been 18) which literally felt like she threw down her pen write before the ending in the middle of a sentence and paragraph and said no more. Lorelei King definitely makes the listening pleasant. I downloaded this in the middle of a bout of horrendous traffic (so bad that I felt completely at ease locating and downloading an audiobook) and it served it's purpose well as a cotton candy low stress book that served me very well in the hour it took to get to my location two miles away and in my commutes following.
This book was highly anticipated and Janet didn't let us down. From One to Nineteen I have been absolutely unable to put these books down and Notorious Nineteen tops the cake!
She is incredible breathing life into the characters
Stephanie, to tell her to enjoy having two men in her life
I have read all 18 books and loved them, but I thought ths one lacked the fun and excitement of her other books. It was predictible and tedious at times. Her car blows up again, and she and LuLu pig out again - same story over and over again. I feel like Janet is running out of material and Stephanie is not progressing as a character. She has not make a decision about which man she wants - Ranger or Moreli. Both are hot, but come on - pick one or just be greedy and keep both!! Of couse, I'll listen to the next book, as I'm too hooked on the sereis to quit, but I hope the next book has some original content next time.
Yes. Fun and interesting. Mysteries are seldom fun reading.
Previous Evanovich books.
She can make the characters "come to life".
The reader makes the characters come alive!
Ive listen to 60% of the series within the last month. You get used to the way the story goes.
She is so totally awesome. She could read the Constitution and it would be reveling.
I would recommend it for the light reading and "no-brainer" content.
I liked the plot since there were several things happening at once. This is definitely not the same plot The author has used before, but the antics do repeat themselves.
I think the plot lends itself well to a movie.
I'm a big fan of the Stephanie Plum series and enjoy reading the light, uncomplicated plot lines in between other novels which are more cerebral. I've always enjoyed the continuity of going from one to the next and always knowing who is who. Unfortunately, what bogs this book down is its constant explanation of who is who, who lives where, and telling the new reader the connections that exist between characters. It is definitely a stand-alone book, not dependent upon the others to get the gist, but I already know the gist and grew tired of being reminded.
The characters only get better and better. Janet Evanovitz keep the stories fresh and interesting.
Stephanie Plum is still my favorite. Things just seem to happen to her and she never gives up. Its always a game to see how many cars she'll lose in any one book.
She's an old friend now and has her performance down to a T. She is perfect for the series.
I always laugh out loud at least once every book. We were at a football game and I was reading one of the series on my iPhone and started laughing out loud. My husband thought I ws crazy until I told him what I was reading.
The wait for the next installmernt is always hard. I truly look forward to the next one and hope for the next one and hope she doesn't stop.
