Review

'Reads like a screen-play for the 1930s screwball comedy: fast, funny and furious... The rollicking plot...keeps the reader breathless' -- Publishers Weekly 'Non-stop laughs with plenty of high jinks' -- USA Today 'Janet Evanovich's madcap comic mystery is pure, classic farce' -- New York Times Book Review 'Stephanie Plum in ass-kicking form...utterly delightful' -- Cosmopolitan 'Pithy, witty and fast-paced' -- The Sunday Times 'Packed with her familiar wicked ear for dialogue, the latest Evanovich will delight her legion of fans - and with good reason. Plum is not just a smart private eye but a heroine with a sense of humour' -- Daily Mail --This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.

I have been a long time fan of all things Evanovich. I am always anxiously awaiting the next book. I have laughed out loud on planes, in my office, and woke my husband in the middle of the night laughing so loud over the stories. But this it it for me. The last books, especially this one, are forced, lack humor, and seem almost infantile in the attempt.
I am so sorry over it! I loved these series and really wish they could just go on forever......sigh.

I've read all of Janet Evanoich's books, and I've usually enjoyed them. I really enjoyed the first Wicked book, but honestly, this one seemed a tepid, less funny, less passionate re-mix of the first one. I found myself constantly checking to see how much I had left to slog through, which is not a fun feeling when you've been looking forward to reading a book.
And unlike some, I got bogged down in all the Boston history. A little background for scene setting is one thing, but I constantly felt like I was getting a lecture in all things Boston. I don't care which streets they went down that connected to that street. I'd have read a Wiki article if I'd wanted to learn about Boston and saved my $15.
There's was no character development, we didn't learn anything new or discover more about Disesel or Lizzie, and honestly Glo just feels like a forced side kick wannabe, though this time around she was more interesting than Lizzie.
Overall I've been very disappointed in the last few Plum and Wicked books, everything feels flat and forced, I miss the laugh out loud passages that made my husband ban me from reading in bed.

This is the second book in the Lizzy and Diesel series, and I enjoyed the first one far more than Wicked Business. The story felt forced, there is a lack of character development and honestly, it just was not as funny as Wicked Appetite. I did enjoy how the Boston area acts almost as another character in the book, and the bonus material at the end was nice. Overall, Wicked Business is a quick read, and while Im not upset I bought it, I won't be rereading it.

Brutal...a total disappointment. I have enjoyed all of Janet's (lol) books. I had a difficult time getting into this one. I found myself checking after each chapter to see just how much of the book remained. One big yawn!

I only recently discovered the Plum series and loved those books so much I tore through all 18 in a matter of weeks! I quickly discovered that as the series wore on, the author was relying more on old gags and immature humor rather than solid plot. The first Lizzy and Diesel book changed that perception - I found it funny, fresh and exciting, more like the older Plum novels. Not so for the second in the new series. It has a good premise, what could be more interesting and potentially giggle-inducing than the Lust stone? But nothing was done with it, there was no lust to speak of, there was really no important character interaction at all between Lizzy and Diesel. It felt like they did the same thing about five times in the book - magically pull a clue out of a premise that really made no sense, steal something, drive to Boston to investigate and find a new clue, then find out it all was for nothing since Wulf beat them to it but keep doing what they were doing anyway. "Wicked Appetite" felt like the same plot with not as much effort...when I got to the end I was left scratching my head, thinking "where's the rest of it??" It really felt like Evanovitch couldn't be bothered to even finish the story, let alone tie up the many loose-ends. And this wasn't left open-ended as in it's part of a continuing series, this was more like the author couldn't come up with any creative or interesting ways to wrap it up...so she didn't. And the bonus content in the ebook was a joke - I really wasn't all that interested in knowing what the various areas around Boston looked like, I don't think the setting added that much to the story and maybe if Evanovitch had spent more time on plot and character development and less on cribbing pictures from Google Images - the darn novel might have been better!

I have tried to read Wicked Business several times since I got it last Friday and just can't get into it. As much as I like Janet Evanovich and have loved her books of the past, I just am not in to this nonscence type of story line. I loved the last one she wrote, with the silly title of "Love in a Nutshell" that made you think it would be a silly book but it wasn't it was more like the romance books she used to write. I'm sorry Janet maybe I'll try again at another time but this just wasn't interesting.

I loved the first book in this series so I didn't even read the first few pages before purchasing it. Boy, am I sorry. I forced myself to read the whole book in a vain hope that the book would improve. No. There were flat characters, boring plot, and no humor. I will be looking carefully at the next in the series before chancing a purchase. My recommendation is not to bother buying this one.

Totally disappointing. I am an avid reader especially of all of the Stephanie Plum books. I was looking forward to the new series but I am totally disappointed. I read the first book and kept hoping it would improve - it did not. The second book was worse. Unless Ms. Evanovich starts a new series with a plot, I am done reading her books. So disappointing!!!!!!!
