Product Description

Review

"Evanovich writes with flair in an absurdist vein that her imitators can only envy."
--The New York Times
 
"Evanovich dishes up her usual mixture of shoot-'em-up action (numerous cars explode) and quirky characters (notably a neighborhood flasher with a devoted following)."
--Publishers Weekly
 
"The 15th chapter of Evanovich's long-running Stephanie Plum series still keeps the wacky factor hilariously high. Only Evanovich can make the shenanigans of this nutty crew seem almost reasonable.... There are giggles galore!"
--RT Book Reviews
 
"Read “Finger Lickin' Fifteen” for the laughs."
--Omaha World-Herald

Product Description

Recipe for disaster: Celebrity chef Stanley Chipotle comes to Trenton to participate in a barbecue cook-off and loses his head – literally.

Throw in some spice: Bail bonds office worker Lula is witness to the crime, and the only one she’ll talk to is Trenton cop, Joe Morelli.

Pump up the heat: Chipotle’s sponsor is offering a million-dollar reward to anyone who can provide information leading to the capture of the killers.

Stir the pot: Lula recruits bounty hunter Stephanie Plum to help her find the killers and collect the moolah.

Add a secret ingredient: Stephanie’s Grandma Mazur. Enough said.

Bring to a boil: Can Stephanie hunt down two killers, a traitor, five skips, keep her grandmother out of the sauce, solve Ranger’s problems and not jump his bones?

Warning: Janet Evanovich's Finger Lickin' Fifteen is habanero hot. So good you’ll want seconds.

1.0 out of 5 stars Slopping it out Jan. 27 2010
Format:Hardcover
"Just shoot me now" - Stephanie's Dad in FINGER LICKIN' FIFTEEN

I hear ya, Mr. Plum! I share your pain.

Ok, ok. I understand that author Janet Evanovich and her publisher have a cash cow in the continuing Plum saga. At worst, the series will gain new adherents at the same rate that old ones fall away disillusioned and the revenue stream will continue at a steady flow. But, does the slopping out of a new book any old way in the act of whoring for the consumers' dollars have to be so obvious? At some point, doesn't it become a cheeky affront to the fan base even as the author skips off to the bank to deposit the funds enticed out of the readers' piggy banks?

I used to be a big Stephanie enthusiast when the concept was fresh. But, after the fourteenth installment, I swore I wouldn't buy another - even a second-hand copy for pennies. And I didn't. FINGER LICKIN' FIFTEEN was a cast-off freebie tossed my way that I read in a single sitting in a jury pool assembly room waiting for the clarion call to exalted civic duty. I should have stuck with the tattered and dog-eared ancient copies of the National Geographic and People magazines, which at least had pictures to arrest my glazed-over eyesight.

FINGER LICKIN' FIFTEEN is a repetitive, unimaginative, stagnant rehash of every mental sight gag in the repertoires of Stephanie, Lula and Grandma Mazur. At times, I thought that Evanovich was trying to win a bet over how many of such she could cram between the covers. The continuing Plum-Ranger relationship, which the author presumably includes to supply her concept of sexual tension, has degenerated into complete nonsense; no police board of inquiry would fault Morelli for shooting both with his service revolver.

2.0 out of 5 stars A Raunchy Plum Fleshed Out by Tired Gags July 8 2009
By Donald Mitchell #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
"Can I distinguish between good and bad?" -- 2 Samuel 19:35

Unless you like reading repeated references to a beheaded body, exposed male anatomy, the symptoms of indigestion, and performing sexual services for pay, you may find this book more disgusting than funny. The humorous sequences that aren't raunchy fall back on the usual gags (burning things up, cars being wiped out, and inappropriate suitors).

The main story lines of Finger Lickin' Fifteen involve Lula unexpectedly observing a murder and being hunted by the killers, Lula entering a cooking contest, Stephanie helping Ranger overcome a threat to his business, and Stephanie and Lula bringing in people who skipped their court dates. On the romantic front, not much happens. Stephanie is angry with Morelli, and she doesn't find Ranger all that hard to ignore sexually.

Unless you like raunchy humor, you may find that you'll be happier skipping this book and hoping that number sixteen will be more appealing.

This book just didn't fit into the series. It seemed more like a writing exercise to see how far an author could "push" humor into regions where it doesn't usually go.

Yuck!

1.0 out of 5 stars Ridiculous Aug. 9 2009
Format:Hardcover
I have read all of the Plum novels and have enjoyed most of them and always look forward to the upcoming newest one. I expect them to be a quick read and fun but the newest one 'Finger Lickin Fifteen' is ridiculously stupid and I could hardly get thru it to the end. The whole situation with Lula is so stupid that it's not even remotely funny. I'm so tired of cars blowing up and fires happening, not to mention that Lula would rather eat than call the cops after she witnesses a beheading, come on....it's going way beyond funny to ridiculous which then becomes annoying. The entire book is just bad bad bad and so disappointing. It's as if Janet didn't write it at all, the writing is so juvenile. This book isn't even a "fun summer" read. I sure hope her quality of writing improves with the next one and the characters are more believable or I won't be bothering to read any more.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great installment of the series July 24 2009
Format:Hardcover
I'm not going to say a whole lot about this book, because the truth is, one book in this series is very much like another. Stephenie chases bad guys, who mostly get away from her. Stephenie and Lula get into embarrassing trouble together. Morelli and Ranger are both extremely hot (one problem of Steph's that I wouldn't mind having.. hehe). It's formulaic, but it's a winning formula.
