quick fun dialogue, simple yet sharp characterizations, dangerously sexy guys, zany sidekicks
on September 14, 2010
It's impossible to read a Janet Evanovich book without smiling. The woman knows how to write funny, engaging characters, throw them into outlandish situations that always leave me wanting more. I'm a huge fan of her Stephanie Plum series (including the supernaturally spiced Between-the-Numbers novellas that this new series is based on) and have wondered for years what a full length paranormal novel from Evanovich would be like. The answer? Familiar in a good way, flirty in a great way, and more fun than urban fantasy ever gets to have!
Everything I love about the Stephanie Plum is in the new WICKED APPETITE book: quick fun dialogue, simple yet sharp characterizations, dangerously sexy guys, zany sidekicks, and a main character who is like the best girlfriend you ever had. Plus this time Evanovich has tied them all together in a perfect paranormal package in modern day Salem. The wickedly sexy Diesel (along with Carl the monkey) and the just plain wicked Wulf have permanently migrated over from Stephanie Plum's New Jersey and I wouldn't be surprised if other familiar faces don't pop up in the future. Dare I hope for a Plum/Tucker crossover...?
If you already like Janet Evanovich (and who doesn't?), you will love her new spin off series. It's basically exactly like her Stephanie Plum series with a magical twist and a new batch of crazy characters to love. And even if you're an Evanovich newbie, WICKED APPETITE is guaranteed to satisfy. I'm just psyched that I now have two Evanovich releases to look forward to each year instead of just one.
