This review is from: Wicked Business: A Lizzy and Diesel Novel (Lizzie & Diesel Book 2) (Kindle Edition)
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.

Everything you said count me in. I miss the laugh out louds on her books. You said your husband banned you from reading in bed? Mine to! LOL he told me your laughing wakes me up so stay in the livingroom! Her daughter once said Janet writes something then goes back later and writes in the funny stuff because she has to think about it. I wish she would take more time with her books and put the laughs back in. The laugh out louds are what kept me buying her books. Now you just get a little chuckle out of them every now and then.
