Customer Review

on June 24, 2011
Okay, I will admit that this go around was a smidge better than the previous two, but only a smidge. I can honestly say that I finished this one, and can't say that for the previous two.

In this go around, Stephanie is being sought out by a serial killer. They leave dead bodies with a note pinned to them that read "FOR STEPHANIE". Stephanie has to find out who is leaving the dead bodies and why she's linked to them. With all of this going on, she is still undecided on who to hook up with: Ranger or Morelli. As usual, she has to go after other bounties that she has trouble catching. WIth all of this is going on, someone from Stephanie's past is back, and they're not to happy with her, and someone is always trying to run her over with their car.The usual cast and crew is with her. Vinnie, Lulu, Connie, ect.

Okay, this book has a lot of problems with it. First off, the books are interchangeable. Stephanie is after a main bad guy. She has to catch smaller bad guys, and usually, the smaller bad guys have mental issues. They think they're either, Santa, Bigfoot, aliens, the Easter Bunny or a vampire. Same old, same old. The second issue is that Stephanie still hasn't chosen between Ranger and Morelli. It's getting old. Just pick one and be done with it. It's just getting so tiresome. A fourth problem is that Stephanie is always blowing something up, and saying, "It wasn't my fault". Over, and over, and over. Fifth, Grandma is still going to funerals, and wanting to get a look in the casket. UG! Enough. Again, it's tiresome. Honestly, all of the books are interchangeable. Same plot is rehashed with a different title. What makes it worse is that this book ends on a cliffhanger, and I doubt that Evanovich will bring the cliffhanger to a logical ending. I have a feeling I know what's going to happen, but I can't say here because I don't want to spoil anything.

There's not humor or charm to the book. It's honestly as if Evanovich is phoning the series in now. I honestly feel sorry to Stephanie in that this is the direction that Evanovich is taking the series. Stephanie isn't growing as a character just always staying the same. I'll continue to read books, but I wish that Evanovich would end the series, I don't like seeing Stephanie this way.

Read the book if you want to, just don't expect to much.
