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: Karen's Roller Skates (Baby-Sitters Little Sister, #2) by Ann M. Martin

In Karen's Roller Skates (Baby-Sitters Little Sister, #2) by Ann M. Martin, Karen Brewer is staying at her father's house for a long weekend. When she attempts a trick on her roller skates, Karen falls and breaks her wrist. This is the second book in the Baby-Sitters Little Sister series, and it's a super cute book for children between the ages of five and eight. Like the first book in the series, Karen's Witch, it teaches children a lesson . . . don't disobey your parents.

The most interesting part of reading this story as an adult was the amount of detail included about getting a cast . . . of course pared down for children to understand. I loved the fact that the author nailed how children try to out do each other. In this case, Karen tries to get someone famous to sign her cast because one of her classmates had someone famous sign his cast. And, of course, Karen exaggerates what happened to cause her to break her wrist and gets caught, which is another great lesson for kids not to exaggerate or lie.

There really wasn't much meat to the story reading it as an adult. Because of that, I gave it three out of five stars. I might have enjoyed it more if I had been the target audience, but I did find it very believable. If you enjoyed this book, you may enjoy The Beginners (The Gymnasts, #1) by Elizabeth Levy.
