I thoroughly enjoyed the earlier Stephanie Plum books but found some of the later ones just okay, if not a bit silly...Well, this new series blows "si..Show More »lly" out of the water. Beyond ridiculous is more like it. A shame really as Diesel's search for the Seven Deadly Sins ancient relics could have been fun. I found the heroine, Lizzie, quite boring and the narrator used an irritating voice for her. I couldn't place the accent and her speech sounded like an older person with loose dentures that kept slipping and making a slight whistle on the S sound. Luckily, her accent came and went.
The featured sin was gluttony but its relation to food was very much overdone to the point of grimacing. The mystery was scant, the unimpressive "bad guy" hardly made an appearance, and the romance was non existing. They'll have to look for the future sins without me.
I usually read epic fantasy, but for years now I have enjoyed diving into a Janet Evanovich book for some light, action packed fun. Her books are laug..Show More »h-out-loud funny. I love Diesel in the "Between the Plums" books with Stephanie, and the first in this series was worth the listen (even if not quite as good as the Plum books). This one however, falls short. It never caught my attention and it took me weeks to listen to the whole thing because I kept switching to other things. The humor was not fresh, more like leftovers from the first book. And it seemed the book couldn't decide if Wolf was still the bad guy or not. Overall, I don't think I will continue with this series. I'll stick with Stephanie Plum.
