3.0 out of 5 stars A St. Patrick's Day Fantasy Jan. 18 2008
By Donald Mitchell #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
If you don't already know, there are two types of stories about Stephanie Plum, Trenton's most discombobulated bounty hunter of those out on bail who fail to show up in court when scheduled. The better ones are full novels and involve a number in the title (there are 13 to date with a 14th in the wings). The less good ones are novellas called "Between-the-Numbers" novels. Plum Lucky is one of the latter.

If you haven't read any of the books before, Ms. Evanovich does a fine job of bringing in the background in the first ten pages or so. Feel free to start here . . . although you won't like it as much as if you start with One for the Money and proceed through the numbers from there.

Grandma Mazur (Stephanie's man-loving, good-time-seeking older relative) is first seen fighting off a man who is trying to take a shopping bag away from her. Before long, grandma is gone and Stephanie's long-suffering mom wants her mother found. The trail soon leads to a casino in Atlantic City where Grandma Mazur is living it up, senior citizen style. That seemingly straightforward story is soon complicated by an injured race horse that needs a home, a Mob baron who looks more toad-like every day, and a marriage that needs repairing. With Lulu exploring her super model potential, Diesel looking to find a missing man who thinks he's a leprechaun, Connie taking target practice, and Stephanie trying to bring grandma home, it's a wild, but brief, ride.

The frenetic story has a predictability to it that makes potential humor a ho-hum affair in many cases. In addition, there's little interaction with either Joe Morelli (her main squeeze) or Ranger (her sometimes wannabe squeeze).

5.0 out of 5 stars No sense of humor? April 8 2009
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I can't believe these reviews! Anybody who doesn't love Plum Lucky is a complete mystery to me. I have read all the "numbers" novels but this is the first "between" book for me. I'll admit it took a few pages to get into it. For one thing, Ranger is my man and I had never met Diesel before. But my husband read Plum Lucky first and his chuckles and out loud guffaws made it obvious that some great laughs were on the way.

He and I usually prefer pretty classy mysteries (Reginald Hill and Le Carre are favorites) so a Jersey bounty hunter is a shock, but Janet E. is well worth a read. Yes, plotting is not her strength and most of her characters are caricatures. So what? If you have a good sense of humor you will learn to love Stephanie Plum.
