Book Review
4 of 5 stars to Finger Lickin' Fifteen, the 15th book in the Stephanie Plum mystery series, written by Janet Evanovich and published in 2009. Evanovich packed a lot of action into this installment, covering more than usual in Stephanie's crazy life. To start off, she's moonlighting for Ranger to help him figure out who's stealing from his business. Not for nothing, and though she may be getting better a bounty hunter and detective, how can Ranger not solve this on his own? And who
It's a compulsion. Though I'm no longer a huge fan, I seem unable to NOT read the books at this point. We'll see if that lasts.
I could almost write the same review here that I did for number 14. The irony I found in this one is that Stephanie herself is constantly lamenting in it that her life is at a standstill, that it doesn't appear that she has grown, that she still has the same crap apartment, job that she doesn't like but doesnt' hate, the same two men, the same back and forth between sai
This was boring. And, not only that but for some reason Janet Evanovich decided that the funny and zany antics of Stephanie Plum needed a new crucial ingredient: fart jokes.

no, not so much

Seriously? Does she think her reading audience is a group of ten year old boys? Because, last I heard, grown ass women aren't real fans of the fart jokes. I know I'm not. I just feel like she is either really out-of-touch with her audience, or she's just plain old out of ideas.
Probably both.

just like Hollywood

I didn't realize that I hadn't put these on my Goodreads so I just did. It has been so long that I can not individually review them. However, I did read a review on this one (to make sure I had read it) and found something interesting that I will comment on. Some reviewers are saying that they have lost interest because the plot is similar, the characters aren't growing, the romance is at a standstill, Stephanie is in the same crap job and same crap apartment (not the same crap car-she has blown ...more

I seriously love this series. It is always so much fun, makes me smile, makes me laugh out loud, and never lets me down with the shenanigans that happen to Stephanie and her rag tag bunch of friends and family. A must read series, truly for anyone that likes a whole lot of humor, a bit of mystery, and a dash of romance.

The barbecue sauce hits the ceiling - literally! - in this fifteenth installment of the Stephanie Plum series.

Lula witnesses the murder of a celebrity chef. She enters a cooking contest to catch the murderers and claim the $1 million reward. Ranger needs help solving a breach within his security company. He recruits Stephanie to work at Rangeman again. Ready. Set. Mystery!

***** SPOILER *****

NO ROMANCE in this one. Nothing. Nada. Zip. I needed my cupcake fix and am highly disappointed I didn't ge
I can't beleive I'm saying this, but I think I'm getting bored of Stephanie Plum and her dumb antics. How anyone as stupid as she gets not just one, but two wicked hot guys hot on her tail, and solves the crime (sorta) is beyond me. I think the books have become too Lula focused and frankly, almost too slapstick in the humor. I don't think the writing is as tight as it used to be, nor do I feel as if any of the characters have much depth anymore.

So, having said this, will I stop reading them? No

This series is fast going downhill. It's become very formulaic: every book, Stephanie will lose a car (most probably thru fire and/or explosion); every book, Stephanie's apartment will suffer some sort of damage; every book, Stephanie will end up in Ranger's bed (although it's usually fairly platonic) and yet she still has such "hot" feelings for Morelli; every book, Stephanie will end up losing a skip she's "this close" to apprehending, etc., etc., etc. The only variation from pattern that this ...more

Finally I got me some dose of Ranger. Not nearly as much as I wanted (can I please have a Ranger-centered book without Morelli?), but I admit I can live off of one "babe" for an embarrassingly long amount of time. So, anyway. Ranger got himself in a bit of a pickle - someone's messing with his business, and he needs Stephanie to help figure out the culprit. Personally, I think he employs her just for kicks, not like he reeeeeeaaaaaaaaly needs her "expertise". I mean the man is as close to a supe ...more

“There were two doors that opened off the hallway. The doors were labeled PUSSY and MOTHERFUCKERS.
"I'm taking the Motherfuckers door," I said to Ranger.
"No way. That's my door."
"Well, I'm sure as hell not taking the Pussy door.”
