Starred Review. Evanovich's latest Between-the-Numbers outing begins on St. Patrick's Day, when bounty hunter Stephanie Plum spots her Grandma Mazur dragging a mysterious duffel bag down the street. Then Grandma Mazur vanishes, and Stephanie's frantic mother begs Stephanie to track her down. Soon, Stephanie and her usual band of sidekicks (including sexy, inexplicably lucky Diesel) are on their way to Atlantic City and into a hilariously funny mess involving stolen mob money, a kidnapped horse and a thief/con artist who thinks he's a leprechaun. Lorelei King does the story justice, milking the prose for every drop of humor with her amusing, distinctive and superlatively accented rendition of each character. Her voices border on caricature, but that's entirely appropriate for this farcical, delightful New Jersey jelly doughnut of a novel, a satisfying snack for listeners anxiously awaiting Stephanie's 14th full-length adventure.

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 --This text refers to the Preloaded Digital Audio Player edition.

"Plum Lucky" is described as a Stephanie Plum Between-the-Numbers book but the series is really by the numbers at this point - Janet Evanovich could write the books in her sleep. There is nothing new here, it's the same old, same old. All of the characters act the same and there's no growth. Fans may be disappointed that there's very little Joe Morelli or Ranger in this book. There is, however, a lot of Diesel. He didn't bother me in the first two Between-the-Numbers novels (Visions of Sugar Plums and Plum Lovin' (Stephanie Plum Novels)) but he annoyed me for some reason in this book. He doesn't add anything to the series and the Morelli-Stephanie-Ranger triangle is worn out enough without adding another man to the equation.
There is a funny scene in a car wash that almost, but not quite, saves the book. With the price of books today, readers deserve more than the same plot lines and jokes that are repeated in this book.
While this book may not be "Politically correct", it is a great Satire and Ms. Evanovich pokes fun at everyone!
