Product Description


"Lorelei King turns the hunt for the Gluttony stone into a wild romp…Evanovich fans won't be disappointed." - AudioFile magazine

Product Description

Life in Marblehead has had a pleasant predictability, until Diesel arrives. Rumor has it that a collection of priceless ancient relics representing the Seven Deadly Sins have made their way to Boston's North Shore. Partnered with pastry chef Lizzie Tucker, Diesel bullies and charms his way through historic Salem to track them down--and his criminal mastermind cousin Gerewulf Grimorie. The black-haired, black-hearted Wulf is on the hunt for the relic representing gluttony. Caught in a race against time, Diesel and Lizzie soon find out that more isn't always better, as they battle Wulf and the first of the deadly sins.

With delectable characters and non-stop thrills that have made Janet Evanovich a household name, Wicked Appetite will leave you hungry for more.

4.0 out of 5 stars Felt a little too familiar for a brand new series Sept. 16 2010
I really wish they'd let us give books half stars. If they did, this would be a 3.5.

I have been enjoying the Stephanie Plum books for a few years, now, and feel that the interest that series held for me peaked at the 12th book and has waned since. It's still fun, but it runs on a formula that has become so familiar that it gets a bit dull.

Which is why I think it's unfortunate that this NEW series is running on a very, very similar formula. I knew that this book stars Diesel as the male lead and that that would lend familiarity, as we've seen Diesel in the between-the-numbers Plum books. I like Diesel, so I did not (and still do not) consider that a down side.

The part I do dislike a little is that even though the others are all new characters...Lizzy, Clara, Glo...they all feel essentially like the Plum cast, remixed just slightly. We have the sort-of ordinary, rather mixed-up heroine and her wacky sidekicks, getting up to goofy hijinks. I was already getting tired of that in the Plum books, so it was disappointing to see this new 'Unmentionable' series. That's the trouble; it doesn't feel new. It just feels like a slightly shuffled Stephanie Plum 'between-the-Plums' book.

I still have hope that as we work through the series (I assume there will be seven books to match the seven vices, but it's just an assumption at this point) we'll get to learn something about Diesel as a person. And maybe we'll even drift a little bit further away from the established Plum formulas and see this series gain its own flavour. Even if it does not, I'll still read it. It won't be exciting because things will be expected, but it'll still be fun.

For established Plum readers, this book may feel a bit stale or expected, BUT!

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved It! Sept. 27 2011
I was looking for a light fun read and found it in Wicked Appetite. I am a Stephanie Plum fan and knew Wicked Appetite would probably follow a similar pattern. There were a lot of laugh out loud parts. The author did her magic again in creating sexual tension between the two main characters. Diesel's character development is taken further in this book and, man, is he hot! A rival for Ranger. I highly recommend the book. The only thing I missed was Rex, the hamster, but I have to say that Cat 1743 and the Carl, monkey were a hoot. This would make a hilarious's hoping! I'll be reading this book again next summer on the beach...

"Give no regard to mediums and familiar spirits;
do not seek after them, to be defiled by them:
I am the LORD your God." -- Leviticus 19:31 (NKJV)

Do you want the good news first . . . or the bad news?

The good news is that the book won't take you long. The bad news is that you decided to read it.

In case you didn't read the dust jacket, this book has a new heroine, Lizzy Tucker, rather than Stephanie Plum.

How many ways would you like to see sexual frisson portrayed involving young, unmarried heroines? Janet Evanovich is clearly obsessed with the opportunity and adds here the dimensions of heavenly cupcake making set against a backdrop of Salem, Massachusetts' haunted reputation combined with predictable Diesel and Carl the monkey humor to set up some pratfalls in the context of a search for some not-so-lucky charms that might lead to a bigger prize in a Men in Black story line. Clearly, this book was intended to be a Halloween present to those who think it's a fun occasion.

Unless you like to read dozens of comic romances every day and you are under quota late at night, skip this one.

4.0 out of 5 stars A fun, rainy afternoon read Oct. 5 2010
Evanovich had me at monkey.

"Wicked Appetite" follows Janet Evanovich's typical story line: nice, interesting woman gets wrapped up in craziness by accident that involves good friends, a gorgeous man, upscale cars, and at least one critter. We have a monkey! And a ninja cat!

I have high hopes for this new series. I like Evanovich's screwball sense of humour and her main character's predicaments so I'm looking forward to future books.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wicked Appetitite - Wickedly Good Sept. 24 2012
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
As usual Janet Evanovich has done a fantastic job of writing a book that you can't put down and that you don't want to end. I love all the antics that poor Lizzie has to go through and the writing is so great that you can picture the scenes that are being described. It is a real page turner and once you have started reading you don't want to put it down. It made for a long night as I couldn't quit reading it, but it was worth every bit of lost sleep. I can't wait for the next book in this series!Wicked Appetite

4.0 out of 5 stars Cupcakes win the Day Feb. 13 2011
By Heather Pearson TOP 500 REVIEWER
Janet Evanovich has done it again with a new and addictive series. It has a wonderful set of characters.

Elizabeth (Lizzy) Tucker is a pastry chef with and innate ability, almost magical, to make the most amazing cupcakes. She is head strong and a bit quirky, which makes her all the more endearing.

Of course there has to be some hunky males. First we meet Gerwulf Grimoire, tall, dark and very dangerously sexy. His name alone gave me pause to decide whether it predicted him be 'bad'. Next is Diesel, also tall and dark, though he reassures Lizzy that he's the 'good' one.

To round out the cast we have Clarinda Dazzle (Clara) the owner of Dazzle's, the bakery where Lizzy works her cupcake magic. There is something special about Clara, something that makes me think witch, and knowing that the story is set in Salem, Massachusetts, it makes me shiver a wee bit. And finally we have Gloria Binkly (Glo) who works the counter in the bakery. When she arrives for her shift at the start of the story she is waving around a magic book that she had felt compelled to go into a store and purchase.

I listened to the BBC Audiobooks America version. 6 hours 13 minutes. Read by Lorelei King. While it was well read by Ms. King, I felt that I would have enjoyed it more if I had read the book. Then it would have been up to my imagination to find the perfect, sultry voices for both Wulf and Diesel.

If you didn't catch the subtle references to magic, well, magic abounds in this book. Diesel and Wulf are in a race with each other to retrieve seven mysterious stones of power. They seem to be associated with the seven deadly sins, gluttony being the stone sought in this book.

I totally enjoyed listening to this book. I wanted it to keep going on to the next stone. Oh well, I do suppose that Janet needs writing time...
