Sizzling Sixteen finds Vinnie being held for a debt owed to a bad man, who owes money to an even worse man. Stephanie, Lula and Connie set out to find and rescue Vinnie. Vinnie may be a turd, but they need their jobs and they do not necessarily want Vinnie to die.

I am feeling a little blah about the last two Plums. The story was better in Sixteen, but I am just not feeling that old Plum magic. Ranger and Morelli have taken a back seat in the last two books, though Ranger has had more time than Morelli. This would be ok if there was something making up for the absence, like a great mystery or the typical Plum antics. Some of the scenes with Stephanie and Lula seem forced, but others are completely hilarious. In Sixteen, Lula is on the "one" diet, meaning she can eat just one of anything and Lula's interpretation of the rules is exactly what you expect and will have you giggling (this is where I should apologize to the people sitting near me on the train while I was reading - I'm sorry, I just couldn't keep the laughs in!).

Sixteen was a funny, enjoyable read, I just miss that "can't get enough" feeling I had with books 9 through 12...
