Publisher's summary

Recipe for disaster: Celebrity chef Stanley Chipotle comes to Trenton to participate in a barbecue cook-off and loses his head—literally.

Throw in some spice: Bail bonds office worker Lula is witness to the crime, and the only one she'll talk to is Trenton cop, Joe Morelli.

Pump up the heat: Chipotle's sponsor is offering a million-dollar reward to anyone who can provide information leading to the capture of the killers.

Stir the pot: Lula recruits bounty hunter Stephanie Plum to help her find the killers and collect the moolah.

Add a secret ingredient: Stephanie's Grandma Mazur. Enough said.

Bring to a boil: Can Stephanie hunt down two killers, a traitor, five skips, keep her grandmother out of the sauce, solve Ranger's problems and not jump his bones?

Warning: Janet Evanovich's Finger Lickin' Fifteen is habanero hot. So good you'll want seconds.

Critic reviews

“Lorelei King delivers this light fiction with gusto, missing none of the humor, whether broad or subtle...King's comic timing suits the story as does the laugh that's almost audible in her performance. Who else could make us giggle at a headless body in a morgue?” —AudioFile

“Veteran Evanovich narrator Lorelei King seems perfectly at home when in command of bounty hunter Stephanie Plum...Plum's larger than life office assistant Lula lands in the center of the drama, and King delivers a deliciously over the top performance of her antics.” —Publishers Weekly

“Lorelei King's narration and portrayals of the bounty jumpers are as spicy as ever!” —Chapel Hill Herald

I couldn't stop laughing!

I've never taken the time to review a book before but this one had me laughing out loud at the grocery store. I listened to it twice (back to back) because I was afraid I may have missed something. It was just as funny the second time. Thanks for making me laugh.

Ready and Waiting for 16

I totally enjoy the series and have read the Stephanie Plum series a couple of times. Finger Lickin Fifteen is both funny and tantalizing. After reading the book I didn't feel satisfied-- I wanted more. It is a frustrating feeling but shows how the series is well written.

Blah blah blah

Disappointing.
When I first started reading the Stephanie Plum books, I laughed out loud and actually felt that they did a good job of being a serious mystery as well as a comedy. I've read every one...but this is my last. Janet seems to just put one out a year, regardless...and they get worse and worse. Nothing new, nothing remotely mysterious, not even good writing and more and more filthy talk.
Sadly, it seems that it is more important to just get a book out there, than to put some serious thought into making it a good one. Goodbye Stephanie Plum....

So It Isn't Just Me!

I am glad to read the comments here. On another site, a group of mature women all raved about this book so I rushed to download it s I have read all from the third installment. I love the dark mysterious Ranger but even he is starting to get on my nerves allowing this woman to pop in and out of his bed at will and play this teenage bimbo game. And what does it say for the tough guy cop and the dog who could use with some serious obedience traning. As for grandma, she needs to grow up! Maybe it is time for both of the men to have a potential love interest other than Steph just to heat things up and force this girl to make grownwoman decisions. I'm sick of hearing about that disgusting thong and what Bob did to it.

Tired of the predictability!

I enjoyed most of the books in this series. They entertained me and made me laugh. But this one did not make me laugh. The characters are becoming to predictable, and the dialogue is always the same. This book focuses entirely too much on unpleasant bodily functions; and seriously, a little of that goes a long way. It isn't cute anymore.

Time to start writing again.

I love Stephanie Plum Books and I always wait with great impatience for the day of the new release. However, I have felt, especially the last book and now definately this book the story line is just a rerun of the first 13 books. With story lines and words just being reworked enough to make it eligible to be called a new book. My recomendation is to not waste any of your credits but wait for a used paperback. And a quick read at the beach. That way if you can't finish it all the way it won't really matter and you will not have wasted too much money. I stay faithful because I still say "One for the Money" is one of the most enjoyable books I have ever read. However, it is now time for Stephanie to grow up and the writing to become as fresh and great as tne first book in this story line.

disappointed

I'm a huge Janet Evanovich fan and have read all her books but was really disappointed in "15". What happened to Lula and Tank's engagement? When is the plot going to move on? The relationships are still the same. Joe or Ranger, Ranger or Joe? Stephanie still doing the same old thing. I was hoping for a little progression in the story line.

A little Disappointed

I love the 'Number' books and have enjoyed all of them. This one, kinda left me, less than enthused. First, it is only a little over 6 hours long. That is one travel day for me. Second, I just didn't think it had the same fun as the other ones I have read.
It is still a fun read but leaves you wishing there were more meat to the story, rather than just pineapple upside down cake.

See ya later, Stephanie

I have come to love this series, and each June look forward to a new guilty pleasure quick read. The predictibility, increasing profanity, and lack of anything new this year is as disappointing as the "between the numbers" books. I am moving on!

Something's gotta change.

I read some other reviews that said this was better than fourteen, they were lying. I'm pretty sure Ms. Evanovich is just having her assistant write these books at this point. There's no conflict anymore, the characters aren't doing anything interesting or new and I only finished listening to it because I was stuck in a car for many, many hours.
