Plum Lucky - Janet Evanovich

Plum Lucky - Janet Evanovich

If you haven't figured it out yet, I'm a big fan of Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum Series. Rarely is there a book that will make me laugh out loud but Stephanie's shenanigans never fail me. I've just finished Plum Lucky.
This time Stephanie hits the road for Atlantic City when Grandma Mazur goes missing along with a duffle bag full of money that she stubbled over while watching a rainbow. Stephanie doesn't venture out alone. She takes the whole crew: Lula the former "ho" who get's a shady job modeling plus-size lingerie, Connie the middle aged sharp-shooter, and Diesel the mysterious man hunting down a guy who thinks he a leprechaun. One of my favorite "laugh out loud" moments include taking Doug the horse (who "talks" to the leprechaun) for an evelator ride after being cooped up in Stephanie's kitchen all day.
Janet is the author who writes all the number books. This is just a short "in between the numbers" book. It's quick read for anyone who might want to try out the series. Another quick one is Plum Lovin. Actually they are all quick reads, these two just have less number of pages.

Her books are definitely a little wacky but I really like them. I'd be interested to see what you think.
