Book Review: Going Rogue, Rise and Shine Twenty-Nine (Stephanie Plum, #29) by Janet Evanovich

Going Rogue: Rise and Shine Twenty-Nine (Stephanie Plum, #29) by Janet Evanovich was published on November 1, 2022.  The novel opens with Stephanie Plum arriving at the bonds office on a Monday morning, and office manager Connie Rosolli isn't there.  When Stephanie finally gets into the office, the file room has been tossed.  Then comes the ransom call, which sends Stephanie on the hunt for a mysterious coin that she needs to get Connie released. The Stephanie Plum book series is one that I've come to love and enjoy when I need a light read that will give me some laughs.  Right off the start, this edition has yet again made me think it's now being ghost written because Lula is asking if one of the people bonded out by Vinnie is Joe Morelli's grandmother.  Lula already know who she is, so this is what made me think that it's ghost written.  If the author just wanted to reintroduce Bella, there had to be a better way to do this. With that being said, I absolutely lov

Book Review: Lean Mean Thirteen (Stephanie Plum, #13) by Janet Evanovich

lean mean thirteen stephanie plum janet evanovichIn Lean Mean Thirteen, written by Janet Evanovich, Stephanie Plum does a favor for Ranger by planting a bug in her ex-husband Dickie Orr's office. In the process of doing this, Stephanie sees one of their wedding presents, a clock, on his desk and tells him it is now hers. She then sees a picture of her arch nemesis, Joyce Barnhardt, on Dickie's desk and goes ballistic . . . punching and hitting him (and more). Unfortunately for Stephanie, the whole office sees her do this, so when Dickie goes missing, she's the number one suspect in his case.

Overall, I enjoyed this book because it featured Ranger quite heavily, but I am growing tired of him always saying how he is barely keeping control of himself from having sex with Stephanie. I'd really like to see Stephanie's character finally get over her commitment phobia and settle down with Joe Morelli, her on again off again boyfriend. Morelli isn't in it too much and that was quite disappointing to me because I love the interactions between the two. What was nice is that is seems that Ranger and Morelli seem to come to a tentative agreement to like each other as people and that both of their focus is to keep Stephanie alive. Something else that I was glad to see was that it did have continuity from her between the numbers book Plum Lovin' (Stephanie Plum, # 12.5).

All in all, it was still funny and enjoyable, and it let me forget about the real world while I read Lean Mean Thirteen. There were even a couple of laugh out loud moments, and it takes a lot to make me laugh. What is even nicer is that it kept my attention the entire time unlike other books I've read. I gave it 4 out of 5 stars. Now, on to another book!
