The first few Stephanie Plum books? Inventive, fresh and very funny. The 24th in the series? Snooooooze. Evanovich has obviously used the same successful outline for every book. Rex, Joe, Ranger, Lula, Grandma and her gun, open casket at the funeral home, etc. The plot twist this time? Get Grandma a puppy! Up for a drinking game? Toss one back every time the word "zombie" is used in this book. It will only take a few minutes 'til you and your friends are all flat on the floor.
Thankfully, I have never paid a cent for one of these books (thanks Gwinnett Public Library...) and could simply fast forward through this latest on CD. Each time I say, "Never again," and have absolutely no excuse about continuing to be drawn to this lame series. Thanks to fellow readers who proclaim, "End this sad saga soon."
