"Thirteen" is good if you liked "Twelve"; if you did not, then skip it. Props to Ms Evanovich for the exploding taxidermy, for Grandma Mazur's continuing romantic exploits, for Tank and Lula's ongoing intrigue (we learn Tank's first name in this one), and for more plausible FTAs. It's a pleasure to see Stephanie becoming more capable and self-sufficent. Morelli is conveniently absent for much of the story and Stephanie is with Ranger. Both guys are likable characters, Ranger has more dimension than in the books before #12 but the continuing three-way with Ranger and Morelli is just not believable. (Steph, go with Ranger.) Glad there were not sightings of the idiot sister Valerie in this book. I get the impression that Ms. Evanovich is reframing her formula for these books and I like the change.
Stephen Colbert's dissertation on life as he knows it really is laugh-out-loud funny. While this is not as unrelentingly hilarious as his TV show, his views on parenting, sex, and relgion are bullseye Colbert.
