Publisher's Summary

Watch your back...Look both ways...Because love is in the air...And that means big trouble!

Mysterious men have a way of showing up in Stephanie Plum's apartment. When the shadowy Diesel appears, he has a task for Stephanie, and he's not taking no for an answer. Annie Hart is a "relationship expert" who is wanted for armed robbery and assault with a deadly weapon. Stephanie needs to find her, fast. Diesel knows where she is. So they make a deal: he'll help her get Annie if Stephanie plays matchmaker to several of Annie's most difficult clients. But someone wants to find Annie even more than Diesel and Stephanie. Someone with a nasty temper. And someone with "unmentionable" skills. Does Diesel know more than he's saying about Annie Hart? Does Diesel have secrets he's keeping from Stephanie and the two men in her life, Ranger and Morelli? With Stephanie Plum in over her head, things are sure to get a little dicey and a little explosive, Jersey style!

Cute, but not her best

Listen....ANYTHING written by Janet and keeping us updated on Stephanie is better than having no Stephanie at all...but...this cute little Valentine whimsy just seemed unnecessary. I'd much rather have waited, with baited breath, for another Stephanie and her two sexy men plot, then to get involved in the storyline of this book which seemed silly and trivial & really didn't "go anywhere".

Something fun and fluffy

It is great to have a "between-the-numbers" book to tide Evanovich fans over until #13 hits the stands in June. This is a great Valentine's Day present for an Evanovich fan. It again includes the character of Diesel who was introduced in "Visions of Sugar Plums". It is always interesting that Stephanie Plum's main men (Joe and Ranger) are always on the periphery when Diesel is in town. The description would seem to suggest more interaction with all 4 characters but that doesn't happen. At any rate, it is good, fluffy fun with some great lines, some good laughs and it gives us a much needed Stephanie Plum fix until the next book. Give it a listen!

Predictable

In this novel I find that the story line is predictable. It is cute but not up to Evanovich’s normal standards. I find it hard to read her novels sometimes in that her character Stephanie Plum continues to fail to learn from her errors and does nothing to improve herself. It is not that she has to be real but how many times can she continue to be a nitwit and not do something about her condition. Even a blind hog occasionally will find an acorn.
In this latest version of Stephanie’s life there is no exception. I for one wish that the author would update her character's training and then we could have new errors to contend with. Not as good as her other stories but not bad either.

Not Quite On Key

This book, like _Visions of Sugarplums_ takes place in a slightly different dimension from the universe of the main series. VOS was so well done that I consider it a gem. This book is less well imagined, and spoils the character of Diesel and his uncanny nature by making explicit things that were better left mysterious.

Don't ruin Stephanie!

I have a special place in my heart for Stephanie Plum and her creator, Ms. Evanovich. You see the first time I was introduced to Stephanie was on a empty flight from Chicago to Los Angeles after 9/11. I live in Los Angeles but was in New York on that fateful day and it took me a week to get home. I had to rent the last car left in Manhattan and drive to my family's home in Chicago in order to catch a flight. I discovered Stephanie at the airport, grabbing a book before I boarded my flight for Burbank airport. I laughed all the way to Los Angeles. Stephanie and Ms. Evanovich provided sweet relief after a horribly traumatic time in my life. I was hooked and have read every Stephanie Plum since. Unfortunately, this latest essay..it's hard to call this 3 hour story a book...was a great disappointment. Weak story line, weak dialog and worse of all..no laughs! I I fear that Ms. Evanovich is bowing to the pressure many popular novelists do and that is to prioritize the publication dates of their novels above the quality of the book they are writing. I fear for Stephanie's future if this type of 'quick fix' writing continues.

Plum Lovin..

I am very sorry that I wasted my time and money. I hope this is not an indication of future Stephanie Plum books.

Disappointing....

REALLY disappointing... I read or listened to the Plum books from the beginning, in order, last year. I was eagerly looking forward to this, but I feel so let down.
Maybe a book was due and needed to be in by the deadline. Sort of seems that way...

Pretty cute story

This was a pretty cute Plum novella - much better than Visions of Sugar Plums

A waste of 1 credit

I found this book to be a waste of time. It was a little humorous here and there, but very bland.

Great combination Janet Evanovich & Lorelei King

Lorelei King does an excellent job narrating all Stephanie Plumb audio books. All the character's sound like different people. This audio book made me laugh and I never get tired of Janet Evanovich's books.
