I love all the Stephanie Plum books. The chemistry between Stephanie and Morelli is great. This book is very entertaining. Lots of quirky people, loads of fun!

Another funny tale
Again, Evonovich seems to outdo herself in terms of characters and adventures.

Need something new from this author
I recently read this book and enjoyed it. It is very light reading and I like the Plum books. However, I have read 15 of these now, and I need something new from Evanovich. Maybe more Stephanie Plum with some sort of "twist" would help. The author needs to get more imaginative. After 15 books, they are basically the same stuff - which is starting to get a little boring.

Finger Lickin' Fifteen
The CD arrived safe. Already listened to it, Wonderful. I am an Evanovich fan and will look for all her books on audio. Will reorder again.
Publishers Weekly, 2009-07-27 Veteran Evanovich narrator Lorelei King seems perfectly at home when in command of bounty hunter Stephanie Plum and her colorful Garden State band of relatives and colleagues. The action here centers on the mysterious death of a prominent cable television barbecue master. As a witness to the crime, Plum's larger than life office assistant Lula lands in the center of the drama, and King delivers a deliciously over the top performance of her antics, especially the reformed prostitute's convoluted plot to solve the case by entering a barbecue cook-off. The abridgment seems a bit choppy, as the details surrounding the motives and methods of the cast of villains seem lost in the shuffle. Yet King's talent and Evanovich's beloved characters still make for an entertaining summer escape. A St. Martin's hardcover (Reviews, May 25). (June) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
Publishers Weekly, 2009-05-25 Bestseller Evanovich recycles tired themes better executed in earlier adventures in her latest Stephanie Plum adventure (Fearless Fourteen, etc.). When Lula inadvertently witnesses the beheading of culinary TV star Stanley Chipotle in a Trenton, N.J., alley, Stephanie's on-again off-again boyfriend, cop Joe Morelli, reluctantly takes the case. Lula, with the help of Grandma Mazur, enters the same barbequing competition Chipotle was in town to promote, hoping to lure the murderers out of hiding. Meanwhile, Ranger has recruited Stephanie to help solve a series of break-ins at properties under the protection of Rangeman Security. The inevitable sparks fly between Stephanie and Ranger, with Morelli grumbling on the sidelines. 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), but the lackluster plot will disappoint fans.
