PLUM LOVIN' by Janet Evanovich (St Martin's Press, c2007, ISBN 0-312-30634-2) is a holiday book featuring Stephanie Plum and company in the Burg.
This book has Stephanie and Diesel, and the regular cast of characters i.e. Lula, Grandma Mazur, Bob the dog, and the rest of Steph's immediate family. No Joe; no Ranger.
In this book, Stephanie is trying to find Annie Hart and Diesel has her. If she helps Diesel play matchmaker to some of Annie's worst clients, he will turn Annie over to Stephanie. Meanwhile, other forces are at work and causing no good. Will Stephanie get her skip?
Like the other holiday book, this one is not the most memorable but it was a fun, easy read to tide me over until #13 becomes a reality. I'm a Ranger Babe so the whole Diesel did nothing for me either, but eh? What are you going to do? I'm going to read every one of these, no matter what, so...
The first sentence:
Men are like shoes.
