Sizzling Sixteen A Stephanie Plum Novel (Paperback)
|Author: Janet Evanovich|
|This 16th Stephanie Plum adventure will wear the blockbuster crown for grand scale fun; it''s a surefire bet. Someone wants to kill Vinnie, but who? The list is long, and it''s up to Stephanie to whittle it down to one. Martin''s Press.|
As Stephanie Plum points out right at the beginning of SIZZLING SIXTEEN, her sixteenth adventure penned by Janet Evanovich, inheriting an ambiguously "lucky" bottle is better than getting handed down some false teeth! But what exactly she's supposed to do with the red, beer-bottle shaped thing that her uncle left for her in his will, she's not really sure...except maybe sell it. With the boss-man of Vincent Plum Bail Bonds in major debt trouble with gangster Bobby Sunflower, Stephanie and her fellow co-workers Connie and Lula have to come up with $786,000 if they want to keep their jobs. So how much is that bottle really worth? Juggling money-hungry mobsters, investment scams, and a handful of colorful, shady Trenton, NJ characters--plus a couple of steamy distractions (a sexy cop and a bad boy)--Stephanie's got her bounty hunter work cut out for her for sure.
Being a huge fan of Plum I was anticipating this release. Now the last few books have been missing a little of that Plum charm we have all grown to love. Sizzling Sixteen was better then the 3 previous books but still not as good as the first few books in the series.But I still really enjoyed the storyline of this book and I felt that we are starting to see Stephanie grow up some. The cast of characters are fantastic...as always. In this book we see Lula and Connie with bigger roles then in the previous books. Of course there is Morelli and Ranger action as well,which can get the heart pounding. I feel like the storyline to this series has been stuck, with our characters not moving forward. In Sizzling Sixteen we have a small cliffhanger that makes me wonder will 17 takes us in a different direction? I guess we will have to wait and see. I recommend this to all the fans out there it is a good, fun read.
I love this series but there was no sizzle at all. Yes, it had very funny moments that reminded me of Plum books past, but the redundancy of said humor, action sequences and even style of writing made this book almost tedious. In fact, the comedy and action is starting to play like a sitcom...and I don't want to read a book that plays like a tv show. The men 'in' her life were hardly 'in' her life, as we didn't see much of them in this one. Please, PLEASE make a decision about your love life Stephanie. It's gotten very old and extremely stale. I know I keep coming back because I want to see some movement, some resolution, in her love life and her professional life, and its just not happening.
