Things are about to get PLUM SPOOKY

Trenton, New Jersey–based bounty hunter Stephanie Plum is the all-American girl stuck in an uncomfortable job, succeeding on luck and tenacity. On her current most wanted list: Martin Munch, a man whose body hasn't made it out of the boy's department at Macy's but whose larger-than-life brain is the means to his business partner's murderous ends. Usually Stephanie gets her man. This time, she gets Diesel, a bounty hunter whose special skills include tracking men and pleasing women. Now it's up to Stephanie and Diesel to hunt down Munch through the Pine Barrens and face the legendary Jersey Devil―prowling above the treetops in the dark of night―and find a way to survive cranberry bogs, sand in their underwear, too many monkeys to count...and, of course, each other.

"Incredible amounts of fun." ―Booklist

Plum Spooky is one of the Between-the-Numbers Novels in the Stephanie Plum series, and falls in between books 14 and 15 in the series. I have to admit that while I generally prefer the regular books in the series to the Between the Numbers novels, that was not the case with Plum Spooky. I absolutely loved this book!

Like all the Stephanie Plum adventures, Plum Spooky is filled with hilarious antics, I laughed SO much that I couldn't help but love it. Many of the laughs came from a new "character" - Carl the monkey. Lula is especially funny as she battles what she believes to be a cold, and we get to meet Morelli's brother who manages to supply plenty of laughs as well. Diesel is incredibly charming, and of course we have a few visits with Steph's smokin' hot crime-fighting men - Morelli and Ranger. And as always, there's lots of action, even more explosions than we've come to expect, and of course a few vehicles that don't survive to see the end of the story.

I'd imagine you can probably skip all the Between the Numbers books and still be able to follow along with the series, but there are some character developments in Plum Spooky that will affect the other books.

Plum Spooky is a fairly short book and with all the laughs and action, I didn't want to put it down. Not quite so spooky as I was hoping, but all the laughs more than make up for that. The only bad part of the book is that Carl's owner comes to pick him up at the end, so I'm assuming we won't get to see much more of him. Bummer.

I highly recommend Plum Spooky to all Stephanie Plum and Janet Evanovich fans, and I even believe it's an enjoyable enough read that those who don't follow the series would still find it entertaining.

By Donald Mitchell #1 HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on Jan. 15 2009
Format: Hardcover
In the past, Between-the-Numbers Plums have been somewhat disappointing . . . with lots of Diesel (the now-you-see-him, now-you-don't spook who seems to be connected to The Men in Black), but little or no Morelli and Ranger. Well, Ms. Evanovich has solved that problem in Plum Spooky by putting in decent amounts of Morelli and Ranger to season the minor chemistry between Diesel and Stephanie. As a result, this is a full-fledged Plum . . . just as though it had its own number . . . you know, something like Frightening Fifteen.

As usual, Diesel appears out of nowhere with no warning. Stephanie has three accused who have missed their court dates, and none of them seem to be particularly challenging. There's Gordo Bella who ran over his ex-wife's new husband twice and is otherwise law-abiding. Denny Guzzi shot himself in the foot while robbing a convenience story, so he probably isn't going to run very fast. The other is Martin Munch, a skinny, five-foot two-inch scientist who looks like a kid in a SpongeBob T-shirt.

Now all that would seem pretty straightforward, but there's a complication. Susan Stitch has left her pet monkey, Carl, for Stephanie to baby sit while Susan is away on her honeymoon. You guessed it. Carl's part of the investigation team. Now, Carl's not your usual monkey. You'll have to read the book to understand what I mean, but it's all very funny.

The story has one other complication. Have you ever read any of the Carl Hiaasen novels about cleaning up the creeps who are ruining the environment? Well, Carl Hiaasen could have been a coauthor for parts of this story as we read about the Pine Barrens in southern New Jersey and the mythical men and beasts of that area (including the Jersey Devil who flies noisily above the trees at night).

The between the numbers books, although they've taken a very strange twist, are a great series of books. They're not stand alone, i'd definately say you'd have to have read the plum series to understand the plot but they do introduce some completely new characters and have a different feel to them. All in all i enjoyed them a lot.

One can't go wrong reading a Stephanie Plum novel - the laughter never stops and the characters she encounters as a Bond Enforcement Agent are unbelievable. Plum Spooky is worth the read.
