Welcome Home, Caroline Kline by Courtney Preiss opens with Caroline Kline couch surfing in New York City due to her no longer having a job and her fiance breaking up with her. The cherry on top is when Caroline finds out her father is not doing well and has to go home to New Jersey to help out. She finds one thing she didn't expect . . . true love. I received an Advanced Readers Copy of Welcome Home, Caroline Kline from NetGalley for free in exchange for my honest review.  The synopsis of this book was intriguing, and I absolutely love baseball, so I couldn't wait to dig in to this story. Unfortunately, the story started off a bit slow and continued to be slow at points throughout the book. The slowness of the plot made it difficult to stay interested in the characters and their fate.  At one point, I didn't really care if I finished the story or not. With that being said, I'm glad I stuck with the book because the last 15% of Welcome Home, Caroline Kline started to

Book Review: Finger Lickin' Fifteen (Stephanie Plum, #15) by Janet Evanovich

Finger Lickin' Fifteen (Stephanie Plum, #15) by Janet Evanovich is the fifteenth installment of her Stephanie Plum book series, if you don't count the four in between the numbers books she's written. In this edition, Lula witnesses celebrity chef Stanley Chipotle, who is in town for a barbecue cookoff, being murdered by two men, and now, the murderers are after her. Now, Chipolte's sponsor is offering a reward to anyone who can provide information to his murder, which leads Lula to pull in Stephanie Plum and Grandma Mazur to help her to capture the killer.

What can I say? I just become more and more enamored with the Stephanie Plum book series. It's a perfect book to read on vacation or even to just relax, regardless of the serious topics it deals with like murder and burglary. Even though a lot of the books in this series has a subplot, Finger Lickin' Fifteen seemed to have more of a subplot, which had me wanting to stay up into the wee hours of the night. And, the fart jokes continued from the previous installment, Plum Spooky (Stephanie Plum, #14.5), which is just what I needed, and they made me actually laugh out loud. I also love the fact that Evanovich follows the same formula because sometimes I just need to read a book where I know that there is going to be a "happily ever after".

There are a few things I disliked about Finger Lickin' Fifteen (Stephanie Plum, #15) by Janet Evanovich is that Stephanie and Morelli are on the "off again" part of their on again, off again relationship. At this point, I seriously doubt that they will ever get married, but I really want them to say, "I do". Another thing that I disliked is Lula's dieting . . . she always goes on these weird diets and complains that she's not losing any weight. I guess Evanovich is trying to make Lula more relatable since so many people tend to "yo-yo diet", but it just frustrated me for whatever reason . . . I guess I'm tired of hearing about her diets. Lastly, I am annoyed that Stephanie is always just "this close" to apprehending her skip. Can she please get somewhat better at her job?!?!

Even with my complaints, I still LOVE Finger Lickin' Good (Stephanie Plum, #15) by Janet Evanovich. I gave it four out of five stars, and I can't wait to see how the series plays out!
