This is the 4th Janet Evanovich early book I?ve read in recent weeks, and frankly they are starting to lose their snap-and-sizzle. The book title promised more than it gave.
The only naughtiness was the upstairs neighbor (Pete) pinching the downstairs neighbor (Louisa?s) newspaper each morning and listening in on her phone conversations. In most neighborhoods, this is just called ?living-up-close-and-personal? with other tenants.
Like most of the Stephanie Plum stories, this plot is definitely secondary to the romance between the 2 lead characters. This plot revolves around a pig seen running the halls of Congress. No kidding!
Fortunately, Evanovich?s sharp dialogue makes up for the plot ? it?s snappy and on-target. Pete and Louisa embark on ?a pig hunt that could have a significant impact on national security and international relations.? (page 48) See, I didn?t make this up!
Like most of the Stephanie Plum books, it didn?t take long for Louisa?s car to be trashed by assailants (who are after Pete and his possessions). In this book, it takes Pete just over 10 minutes to decide that he wants to marry Louisa!
I have to admire anyone who considers donuts and chocolate as two of the major food groups humans need for a healthy life! There are quirks in this book that will reappear in the Plum stories later.
Lest you think that the piggy really matters, it and national security aren?t mentioned for the last 25 pages of the book!
