Review

“The combination of biting dialogue, outrageous characters and intense story lines are consistent throughout. And [Janet Evanovich] novels are the true definition of a guilty pleasure.”—Associated Press
 
“Evanovich doesn’t disappoint. . . . [She] weaves setting, family, romance and crime to pull the plot of Top Secret Twenty-One forward.”Bookreporter

Laugh out loud funny.

It seemed like she was trying to add too much to the story line and it just made it jumbled.

Janet Evanovich has been writing best-selling books for so many years I forget when I started reading them. The antics of Stephanie and her crew have made me laugh so hard I had tears running down my legs. The sexual tension between the characters has always had me coming back for more, and, more. Ms. Evanovich was a master of the craft and we all profited from it. She's done now. The legend of Stephanie Plum is over. I don't know how it happened. I don't know when it all started to go wrong. But alas, the ride is over. Maybe it started when the author started to write other series with other authors. Maybe she just had no more left for Stephanie to do. But since about book 11, I think we all started getting tired of it. How many more times is someone going to say "babe"? Are we expected to read a book where someone usually dies, the dog eats something and pukes, grandma does something kooky, and the heroine waffles back and forth between two men. We all give thanks for the years of enjoyment but we are officially done. For the last ten books (translate ten years and about $300.00, not to mention the shelf space we have lost) you can take off the dust jackets, mix them around and put them in any order you want. It makes no difference, THE'RE ALL THE SAME BOOK!!!! I gave it ten good years and except for the fact that the books are getting thinner, they haven't changed a bit. I actually SKIMMED through this book. Can you believe it? SKIMMED!!! I'm sorry Janet, I have loved your books since I was a teenager, but I can't read one more repetitious word. I WILL miss you. But I really need the shelf space.

Anymore, I look forward to reading the Stephanie Plum Amazon book reviews much more than I actually enjoy the books.

Let me summarize
Lula is fat, beautiful and funny
Grandma Mazur is whacky
Vinnie is creepy
Connie is competent
Rex is …. well my goodness he's STILL ALIVE and still pretty much a work free pet
Joe is hardworking, decent, needs a hair cut, and likes sex
Ranger is hardworking, dark, mysterious, wealthy and just an almost irresistible temptation

Stephanie is cute, has curly hair that she wears in a ponytail, utterly incompetent and lucky as all heck

Well, and Randy Briggs is back. Still short. Still obnoxious.

And this year's weird animal is a pack of red-eyed killer chihuahuas. Do you people know how hard it is to correctly spell chihuahua? I think getting that right numerous times was probably the biggest effort that was put into writing this book.

I downloaded and read this book in about 3 hours on my Kindle Fire HD.
It was SO predictable. Nothing new was added, nothing old disappeared.

If I had to do it over again, I would never have touched one of Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum books. Never. Not in a million years. But, like Steph and donuts, I'm kinda hooked.
I figure the series has to come to some conclusion eventually....

Of course, I thought the same thing about the much superior and similar ( though now somewhat to very socially outdated) Travis McGee series written by the late John D. MacDonald from the 60's ( reissued in paperback) through the late 80's. No conclusion for Travis.. Only conclusion was that there were no half- finished manuscripts to be published posthumously after the author's death in the late 80's. I can highly recommend the Travis McGee series. He's like Ranger, only he's all about the women around him and they are all about him. Crimes just happen in the meantime.

This book, however, was such a formulation of all the last few years' of Plum number series books that it was impossible to find anything much to smile about, be interested in, or even be grossed out about even though Janet amped up the gross factor quite a lot to make up for the lack of sex. This was a first I think. Usually there's not much grossness or sex.
Just a girl who is always described by her hair, her mascara, her lip gloss and her lack of markmanship.

This has to end, Janet. Please. Use a nice even number like " 22" and put Steph. with one of the two men, make it final, and maybe shuffle the formula writing off to someone else- someone who will then write gooey romance novels about Stephanie and either Joe or Ranger.
I'd actually read more if Ranger was the leading man.

This action adventure is stale and trite and the gore in this novel was " shock jock". I believe an adolescent is writing under Evanovich's famed name now. Really.

I have been a loyal fan for the entire series. But when you have 21 volumes to 1 Series, unless you're very good the stories continue to repeat themselves. This book was nothing new, same stories different book. I'm really disappointed in Janet, after all these years you think if the story wasn't going to go anywhere she would end rather than letting it bad. This was my last Stephanie Plum book, I will not continue to waste my money to reread one of the other many volumes of the series. Spoiler alert - Stephanie's in danger, the boys fight over her, and she ends up in a ridiculous situation where she has one of her felons living with her. No decision on Joe or ranger, no movement on either relationship, and at the end of the book I'm no further invested than I was at the end of the last.
