Product Description


“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

From the Back Cover

Unbuckle you belt and pull up a chair. It's the spiciest, sauciest, most rib-sticking Plum yet…


Celebrity chef Stanley Chipotle comes to Trenton to participate in a barbecue cook-off and loses his head―literally.


Bail bonds office worker Lula is witness to the crime, and the only one she'll talk to is Trenton cop Joe Morelli.


The reward for capturing Chipotle's killers: One million dollars.


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


Stephanie's Grandma Mazure. Enough said.


Stephanie's working overtime tracking felons for the bonds office at night and snooping for security expert Carlos Manoso, aka Ranger, during the day. Can she hunt down two killers, a traitor, and five skips, keep her grandmother out of the sauce, and solve Ranger's problems and not jump his bones?


Habanero hot. So good you'll want seconds.

"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.

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.

Art Matters: The Art of Knowledge/The Knowledge of Art
Natural Law, Science, and the Social Construction of Reality

I have been reading the whole series and, like any series, there are good and bad books. The last couple were not so good, with forced humor.

This one is a bit better, but not for the reasons this series gets read.

The writing in this book was good. The characterizations were good. The plot is dumb, but then one doesn't read this series for plot. The series is all about character.

Some of the scenes should have been funnier. But as I was reading the book I realized that because the writing seemed better, the humor was not forced, so when a scene should have been funny but wasn't, I found the scene just worked as a situation in a silly mystery rather than as a comedy.

So after the beheading scene and dumb attempts to kill Lula, I just decided to read this as a character driven story with a silly, but not necessarily funny, plot. And on that level it worked.

Perhaps Janet Evanovich should stop trying to be funny---forced humor does not work---and just concentrate on developing the characters and let the characters reactions to situations determine how the story unfolds.

By Donald Mitchell #1 HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on July 8 2009
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.

I read the other two reviews, and wondered if we were reading the same book.
I thought it was great. It isn't the repetition of amusing events that amaze me, or coming up with new disasters,,,,,,,,it's the ability to word ordinary happenings so that they sound funny.
After reading books that are supposed to be entertainment, but instead cause nightmares and tears, Janet Evanovich is an absolutely reliable, breath of fresh air.
I think Evanovich is an amazing writer.
