Plum Lucky (A Between-the-Numbers Novel)
Author: Janet Evanovich
Hardcover: 176 pages
Publisher: St. Martin's Press


Stephanie Plum has a way of attracting danger, lunatics, oddballs, bad luck . . . and mystery men. And no one is more mysterious than the unmentionable Diesel. He’s back and hot on the trail of a little man in green pants who’s lost a giant bag of money. Problem is, the money isn’t exactly lost. Stephanie’s Grandma Mazur has found it, and like any good Jersey senior citizen, she’s hightailed it in a Winnebago to Atlantic City and hit the slots. With Lula and Connie in tow, Stephanie attempts to bring Grandma home, but the luck of the Irish is rubbing off on everyone: Lula’s found a job modeling plus-size lingerie. Connie’s found a guy. Diesel’s found Stephanie. And Stephanie has found herself in over her head with a caper involving thrice-stolen money, a racehorse, a car chase, and a bad case of hives


If you’re a fan of the Stephanie Plum series and haven’t yet tried out a between-the-numbers novel, then I’m here to tell you, you’re missing out. It’s a laugh riot like the other Plum novels, only minus Ranger and Joe. But don’t worry, there’s Diesel, the not-so-ordinary man to provide enough sexual zing to keep things (and Stephanie, for that matter) going. And then there is the usual assortment of side characters including the loud Lula, geriatric Grandma Mazur, and this time even a short Irish leprechaun (or so he likes to think). In fact there’s one particular car-wash scene involving this little guy that had me rolling on the floor, clutching my stomach laughing, howling my guts out.

In Short

Evanovich has been doing this a long time and there’s no one better who can combine suspense and hilarity in one inimitable screwball of a side-splittingly funny novel.

Treat me to a Starbucks, so I can stay up late blogging my heart out!
