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: Turkey Day Murder (A Lucy Stone Mystery, #7) by Leslie Meier

book review turkey day murder a lucy stone mystery 7 leslie meier

The small town of Tinker's Cove has a plethora of holiday traditions during the Thanksgiving holiday, including visits to the Brown Farm to see Tom Tom the turkey, attending the annual parade, and watching the annual high school football game. However, the celebrations go awry when Curt Nolan, a Native American activist, is found murdered in Turkey Day Murder (A Lucy Stone Mystery, #7) by Leslie Meier.

As usual, I thoroughly enjoyed this edition in the Lucy Stone book series by Leslie Meier. Although I read this particular book in February, it's the perfect book to read in November to get into the holiday spirit. I'm not sure if there really is a Metinnicut Tribe or not, but it definitely makes me want to learn more about the Native American history in the United States because most of what I learned about this was during elementary school.

I found that many of the situations were very believable, including how late Toby and his friends arrived and didn't bother calling to let his parents know when he would arrive. He didn't consider that his mom might be worried . . . typical teenage behavior! The fact that his friends were surprised at how little there was to do in a small town like Tinker's Cove was very convincing too. The protest scene was credible as well, especially seeing all the ones on the news over the last few years.

There wasn't too much I could complain about in Turkey Day Murder. One thing is that Lucy's husband Bill was a bit of a jerk . . . again. I dislike that he's so old fashioned and wouldn't even listen to his wife, but I guess there are men out there that act like him. The other thing I didn't particularly care for, or understand, was that so many people were against the building of the casino.

Five out of five stars is what I gave Turkey Day Murder (A Lucy Stone Mystery, #7) by Leslie Meier. If you enjoyed this book, you might enjoy Look Alive Twenty-Five (Stephanie Plum, #25) by Janet Evanovich.
