Finger Lickin’ Fifteen
By Janet Evanovich
Finger Lickin’ Fifteen is the fifteenth novel in the Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanovich.
Hilarious as ever, this Stephanie Plum book gives you an optimum dose of entertainment.
Lula and Grandma Mazur’s (sometimes) mindless and inept action keeps cracking the readers; Ranger and Morelli still remain their usual attractive selves and though Stephanie shows no growth in character, the book is a fun red.
Lula witnesses the murder of a celebrity chef and is inclined to nab the murderer, given the hefty reward offered. She ropes in Grandma Mazur and Stephanie to help her promising to split the reward. Stephanie is assisting Ranger in solving a series of thefts that appear to be inside jobs and the two get some good action too.
Murder mystery aside, how does Stephanie remain her usual “thin” self is what ticks my brain cells. Maybe it’s her “bounty hunter” job that works for her.
But as such, no novelty. Same old car thrashing series. Same old Stephanie-teasing-Ranger/ Morelli. Same old Lula stunts. The passion, the mystery and the sprinkle of humor makes it readable – but as a fan I still yearn for a better plot.
