1.0 out of 5 stars Time for this series to end & Janet to create something NEW, July 30, 2009
This review is from: Finger Lickin' Fifteen (A Stephanie Plum Novel) (Stephanie Plum Novels) (Hardcover)
I have been a big fan of Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series from the beginning-heck I have collected an autographed hardback of every book since One for the Money.
The last few books in this series (and the in-between the numbers novelettes)have all been a rehash of the same tired scenarios. Stephanie blowing up cars, Stephanie not able to decide between Ranger or Morelli, Stephanie not able to catch her bond skips, Stephanie ending up drenched in some sort of goo, and unfortunately, Stephanie as an uninteresting mess than never seems to wise-up. Finger Lickin' Fifteen needed to be The Fifteen Finale. Janet, it is time to move on to a better developed, more intelligient character series. I cannot continue to be frustrated at the lack of Stephanie's progression. What was initially a funny, well-written series has declined into the same old book but just with a different cover. Janet please write one more Plum book where Stephanie actually matures and moves on with her life and end the series on a high note.

I have to agree with S. J. Taylor, your last 4 books in the series have all been the same,
you need to introduce some more main characters, Rex must hold the worlds record for the longest living hamster. Get Stephanie to make a major decision in her life.
Either marry Joe or find some one new. , Ranger isn't the marring kind.

Lets go back to the beginning and have Stephanie GROW UP !!!!!

Completely agree. I'm almost finished w/FLF and I coudn't stand it anymore. I had to stop and write this review. Give me a break Janet! Same ole same ole just like you said S.J. and Mary. How many times can Stephanie's car be fire-bombed, blown up, blah blah blah. It's the same plot line each and every time. Stephanie can't choose between Morelli and Ranger. Stephanie's car gets destroyed. Rangeman cars get destroyed. Lula eats her way through everything. Stephanie covered in some sort of crap. Stephanie's apartment gets destroyed. She must go through five, six, seven, cars per book. It's not funny anymore. It's just plain ridiculous. And can you make Lula any MORE ignorant???? Come onnnnnnn. Fifteen books later and it's still like she just got off the streets! What.....has just a year gone by??? I'm soooo disappointed in Janet. Like someone else said......it's like she's just phoning it in. And seriously.......has she learned NOTHING in being a bonds woman? Each and every time she goes to get a skip she lets them go to the bathroom, go put some clothes on......never once thinking that maybe they'd be going out the window??? Give me a break! Disappointing. It's like she's living the same day over and over and over and over again. No growth. No progress. No real plot. Just plain stupid. One star is generous.
