Posts Tagged ‘Notorious Nineteen’

Good Sunday morning everyone! I hope this finds you safe, happy, and ready to face the day.

To begin, I recommended Split Second last Sunday and, as I indicated then, I hadn’t finished it. I did finish it early this week, and it had a little sci-fi section that I didn’t see coming, which got a bit weird for my taste. It was still a good read, and I really liked the Ted-Bundy’s-daughter-as-the-bad-guy/girl factor. But I’m not that into sci-fi/voodoo/magic stuff, so for that part of the book, I definitely scratched my head a bit.

This week, I finished Janet Evanovich’s Notorious Nineteen. It was all things Evanovich—silly, zany, wacky, a little unrealistic, but funny in her typical form. In this caper, bounty hunter Stephanie Plum and her voluptuous sidekick Lula are (primarily) looking for a perp who mysteriously disappears from a hospital after recently stealing millions of dollars, and—as is typical—there are a lot of side stories along the way. There’s a Yeti, a horrible pink bridesmaid’s dress, a little person, a firebomb in an apartment, several torched cars, tons of fast food, Grandma Mazur dressing like a hooker, and some Morelli and Ranger scenes to keep it interesting for the ladies.

If you enjoy standard Evanovich, then this is a good one. It’s a super-fast read and with overall  general silliness. For those of you who are into more thought-provoking, political espionage thrillers, this probably isn’t for you. For next week, I’m almost done with Broken Arrow by Tana French, and there’s nothing silly about this one. It’s a dark mystery that’s very cerebral, a bit melancholy, and quite good. But I’m getting ahead of myself…I’ll finish that one and let you know next week. ‘Til then, happy reading! 🙂
