Janet Evanovich – PLUM SPOOKY

If you've never read anything from Janet, slap yourself. Why and the heck haven't you? She's dang funny. Plus she uses clichés out the wazoo, adjectives and adverbs, and they are delightfully used. How refreshing is that? If she was a new author . . . never mind.

SPOOKY is novel eighteen of the twenty in the Stephanie Plum series. Okay, so I'm behind. Actually, I'm really behind. I'll be honest and admit I only recently discovered Janet.

What's not to like about a book with a ho named Lulu who carries a Glock, and a monkey named Carl who flips everyone off? These elements alone get a star, don't they? There's lots of flirty talk, but missing as usual, a gratuitous sex scene. Come on, Janet! Would it break a metacarpal?

Overall I give Plum Spooky ★★★★ (rounded up)

Technical Composition.…★★★★★
Story…………………….★★★
Characterization………...★★★★★
Style……………….……★★★★★
Edginess………….……..★★★
Ahhhh factor……………★★★
Sexiness…………………★★★

Write Every Day!
