Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

In bestseller Evanovich's breezy third holiday novella (after Plum Lovin'), Stephanie Plum's kooky Grandma Mazur finds a duffle full of money on the street and hightails it to Atlantic City. When Stephanie learns that the money was stolen from Delvina, a notorious Trenton mobster, she and her friend Lula head off in pursuit. In Atlantic City, the Jersey bounty hunter discovers she's not the only one after Grandma after meeting Snuggy, an ex-jockey who originally stole the money and is convinced he's a leprechaun. With her on-again off-again boyfriend Morelli tied up with a murder case and the sexy Ranger otherwise occupied, Stephanie turns to the mysterious Diesel for help. As she tries to keep Grandma safe and fend off the advances of Diesel amid the slot machines and craps tables, Stephanie realizes she may be in over her head. With her trademark wit, cast of eccentric side characters and hilariously absurd plot twists, Evanovich treats her fans to a delightful miniadventure sure to whet their appetites for the next full-length Plum escapade.

From Booklist

Evanovich has been producing these short and sweet bonbons in the Stephanie Plum Trenton universe around holidays: Christmas (Visions of Sugar Plums, 2002), Valentine’s Day (Plum Lovin’, 2007), this one’s for St. Patrick’s. The theme is green, as in a guy who thinks he is a leprechaun, talks to horses, and steals a bagful of cash that Stephanie’s Grandma Mazur lifts and takes to Atlantic City. Also present in these interludes between Evanovich’s numbered Plum series is the enigmatice Diesel, who has powers beyond those of mortal men (even Stephanie’s two beaux, Morelli and Ranger). The usual cast finds itself in Atlantic City, trying to hold on to the leprechaun, win back the money, and rescue the horse, until a very ugly mobster, whose money was pinched by the leprechaun, kidnaps Grandma Mazur. Diesel may be an angel, but he thinks Stephanie’s hot, and Stephanie may be a skip tracer, but she also worries about her grandma. Oh, and for awhile, the horse really is in her kitchen. Silly, hilarious, delightful. --GraceAnne A. DeCandido

Customer Reviews

I do not think I got my money's worth with this very short book with the silly plot.
Libby Pelletier
I just love Stephanie, Grandma Mazur, Morelli, Ranger, Lula, and all the other characters.
C. Thull
And the Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanovich is very enjoyable night time reading.

Statisically speaking, luck has a normal distribution, that is, it has a bell shaped curve. Most people are in the middle with an average amount of luck, but some people are at an extreme point on the curve and are unlucky all the time (like that character in Lil Abner who walked around with a black cloud over his head), and some are at the other end and are lucky all the time. So goes life.

It's St. Patrick's Day and there is a rainbow in the air. Grandma Mazur stumbles into a duffle bag full of money - lots of money. She thinks that it is lucky money and hers to keep. Let the good times roll. She is off to Atlantic City. But other people have claims on the money. The story has an interesting cast of characters including an ex-jockey who thinks that he is an invisible leprechaun (he is always lucky, but manages to fumble it away); of course there are Stephi, Lula, and Connie from the bailbonds office; Diesel appears from Stephi's past - another man in her life; a short guy hired by Grandma Mazur; the gangster Delvina; and a horse to add to the adventures and misadventures. Of course there is the money.

You will have to read the novel to see how it all shakes out. The novel is not great literature, but is extremely funny. ROFL. Some scenes towards the end had me laughing so hard I had trouble continuing.

It is a short novel, and a quick read, at 166 pages with 28 lines per page somewhat widely spaced in easy reading type. It contains what a friend would call earthy language. I would personally classify it as PG-13.

In this latest installment of the Plum series, Stephanie is on another crazy adventure with none other than Diesel.

When Grandma Mazur finds a duffel bag filled with loot she disappears, Stephanie tracks her down at a casino in Atlantic City where the craziness ensues. Grandma has the money; Stephanie, Lulu and Connie are after Grandma. A Leprechaun is after the money and Grandma. A mobster is after the Leprechaun and money. And Diesel is after the Leprechaun. Things get hectic.

At 166 pages and giant print, this hardcover could easily have been read in a couple of hours, had I been drawn in to the story, I would have. The thing is I think the thrill is gone for me on this series and that bums me out tremendously. I have been on board with this series and loving every minute of it up until Lean Mean Thirteen (Stephanie Plum Novels). I feel like with that book, and now this one, I am reading the same story over and over. Nothing really new or exciting is happening. I didn't laugh at all during this book and I think I only giggled once when a joke is made about the size of the Leprechauns anatomy.

This is the first Janet Evanovich book I haven't purchased. Normally I rush to the store on the release date. This time I let my sister go it alone and I waited for her to be done with her copy and that's what I read. I don't want to be done with this series, but if she doesn't shake things up in Fearless Fourteen: A Stephanie Plum Novel (Stephanie Plum Novels), I am done. I will reread the old ones and have to be content with that.

This is a very cute book - it had some guffaw moments to it, but generally it is a great escape book - where we see some of our favorite characters doing crazy stuff.
The story takes place about a month after the last in between book - this time is St. Patrick's Day - Grandma Mazur has found a large bag of money, and has gone to Atlantic City to gamble it - Stephanie, Connie, Lula, Diesel (who is featured in the in between books) and a wannabe leprechaun (who found the money) go to find her.
Lula is more flamboyant than her normal self - thinking she will become the next plus size supermodel...
Some hilarious moments happen when the crew saves an injured racehorse named Doug and transporting him in an RV, then a stint in Stephanie's apartment -
We get tweaks of our favorite guys - Joe and Ranger, but that's it - their comments add to the madcap atmosphere though...
What we didn't see was Rex - where was Rex - did he go South for the Winter? Do not think the little critter would have enjoyed being alone while Stephanie was in Atlantic City, or having a horse horn into his territory at Stephanie's apartment...
The obligatory destruction of Stephanie's current car occurs -
It's a cute book - is it the best book? No -
But when Grandma Mazur has a bigger role, it always leaves you smiling...

I used to mark the release date for the Plum novels in my calendar and rush to buy them, but for the last few books the library has been my choice. After this, I might not even bother with the library. There is nothing new in this book. It reads like she pulled previously deleted scenes from past books and used them to flesh out her thin plot. The best character, by far, was a horse. The funniest statement was Stephanie's to Diesel that she doesn't mess around on her boyfriend. (Maybe her problem is that she can't figure out who actually is her boyfriend, as she's messed around plenty in the more recent books.) If yet another exploding car or Stephanie-in-danger scene is what you are looking for, give this one a try. Just don't expect to laugh much.
