Plum Lovin' by Janet Evanovich

Plum Lovin' by Janet Evanovich is another between-the-numbers novel where Stephanie Plum and Diesel set out on another adventure to corral another unmentionable, Bernie Beaner, is on the loose causing havoc. Diesel shows up at Stephanie's and informs her she now must become a relationship expert until Annie Hart is safe, but Stephanie only has a few days to complete the work.

With another ridiculous cast of characters, Janet Evanovich will have readers giggling and rolling on the floor with laughter. Stephanie must find a Valentine's date for a motor vehicle worker with a number of undisciplined kids and a house full of animals, a vet with a knack for attracting gold diggers, a virgin, and help her sister and boyfriend get married.

In the process, hives pop up all over the characters' skin, Delvina reappears looking for a "hot" necklace that was stolen from him, and Diesel and Stephanie make plans to get married. While Morelli is not in here much, Ranger does make an appearance, though Stephanie spends her Valentine's Day with the family and Diesel. Lula is always hilarious with her wise cracks and alternative perspective. Although this is not literature at its finest, it will surely entertain readers and provide a light read full of comedy.

Well, I guess Stephanie has moved on in her love life since I gave up on this series after Number 6! Good to know!

Read this last year. Mindless fun. Lots of giggling is right. :)

I read this! I haven't read the most recent between the number Plum though. I do find these a little silly but they are still entertaining.

Jenners: Not sure if she really has moved on .... she's sort of in a love square?!

Mari: I love the giggling and mindless fun once in a while.

Ladytink: I like the mindless entertainment factor.

This just sounds like a hoot! I'm looking forward to listening to my first Evanovich audiobook later this week.

Serena said...

Jo-Jo: I can't wait to hear your thoughts on the audiobook!

Glad you enjoyed this one. I'm still not sure I want to try this series.

Yes, there are times when nothing brightens up the day like a Stephanie Plum novel, and thank goodness for that! I'm in the middle of Plum Spooky and am thoroughly enjoying myself. :-)

Serena said...

Darla: I just picked up the audio of Plum Spooky and we will be starting it tomorrow.

Dar said...

Diesel cracks me up. I've got Plum Spooky on hold at the library but I'm way down the list. I love these books just for the pure entertainment factor, nothing else.

Serena said...

Dar: The entertainment factor keeps me coming back...lol hint...there may be a giveaway of plum spooky in your future.

Dar said...

Ooooooh Serena, my future likes that idea!

Serena said...

Dar: I knew your future would be pleased.
