4.0 out of 5 stars Don't Compare Barney to Stephanie, November 28, 2004
This review is from: Metro Girl (Alex Barnaby Series #1) (Hardcover)
From the moment I opened the book I knew I would be comparing it to the Plum series,

This turned out to be a big mistake, best to read this book as a completely different story and try to put every Stephanie Plum book out of your mind. I know this is not an easy task for fans of Plum, but if you are able to do this you will find that the writing style of Janet Evanovich will shine through in Metro Girl.

The book opens with a mysterious phone call the Barney receives in the middle of the night from her brother Bill. Barney decides that she either must find Bill so the next morning she flies down to Florida in search of her missing brother. After she teams up with the Sexy Sam Hooker or NASCAR Guy as she refers to him often she finds herself in the middle of an adventure with non stop Action and many memorable characters.

I hope that Evanovich Fans will be able to read these books as separate entities and just enjoy the wit and story in Metro Girl, and hold off the Stephanie Plum thought until the 11th Plum will be released. I would definitely continue reading the Metro Girl series but seriously advise everyone to not to compare.
