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: Game On Tempting Twenty-Eight (Stephanie Plum, #28) by Janet Evanovich

Game On: Tempting Twenty-Eight (Stephanie Plum, #28) by Janet Evanovich is the latest edition in the Stephanie Plum book series and opens with Stephanie being awoken by footsteps in her apartment.  Turns out that it's Diesel, and he's looking for the same person Stephanie is looking for . . . Oswald Wednesday, an international computer hacker.  Stephanie doesn't know if Diesel is on her team or looking for a competition in apprehending the suspect.

Once again, this latest edition in the Stephanie Plum book series feels ghost written.  Not that there's ever a lot of cursing in these books . . . Lula is usually the only one who does . . . but when all the characters start using the phrase, "Stick a fork in me", it just doesn't seem like anything any of the characters would say.  There were other character inconsistencies that I can't recall off the top of my head, but it definitely detracted from the story.

With that being said, I loved that the storyline dealt with something a little more current . . . computer hackers.  The secondary characters were super likable, and I can see a few of them appearing in future books to help out in cases.  Lula had some bad mojo in Game On:  Tempting Twenty-Eight, which was a nice change since Stephanie usually has the worst luck.  As with all the other books in the series, this one followed the same formula, but it was still a fun read that gave me some chuckles along the way.

All in all, I enjoyed Game On:  Tempting Twenty-Eight (Stephanie Plum, #28) by Janet Evanovich, and I gave it four out of five stars, only because of the character inconsistencies.  I am looking forward to reading the next book in the series.
