Book Review: There Are No Dragons In This Book by Donna Lambo-Weidner

There Are No Dragons In This Book by Donna Lambo-Weidner is a children's book where kids look to make sure there are no dragons in the book.  The expected publication date is March 5, 2024.  I'd like to thank NetGalley for the Advanced Readers Copy (ARC) of this book. I have to say that I was a bit disappointed in this picture book.  I didn't care for the story, and it's not something I would likely read to a child.  I also didn't like that the story actually did have dragons in it only because I feel like a child might be upset that they were mislead.  However, I'm not the target audience, so kids may love it. On a positive note, I did enjoy the colorful illustrations.  It definitely gives the reader a lot to look at.  Three out of five stars is what I gave There Are No Dragons In This Book by Donna Lambo-Weidner.

Book Review: Notorious Nineteen (Stephanie Plum, #19) by Janet Evanovich

In the latest edition of the Stephanie Plum book series, Notorious Nineteen (Stephanie Plum, #19) by Janet Evanovich, Stephanie Plum finally receives a high paying skip to retrieve . . . Geoffrey Cubbin, who embezzled millions an assisted living facility. When he mysteriously disappears from the hospital after surgery, Stephanie has to enlist Grandma Mazur to go undercover at the assisted living facility. To make ends meet, Stephanie takes on a secondary job with Ranger where her life is in danger.

There were a few books in this series that I thought were just okay, but the last few were better, and Notorious Nineteen was a breath of fresh air. New characters were introduced and Lula seemed to take a back seat for a change. I loved that Joe Morelli and Ranger were both featured heavily. Even though the storyline followed the same formula all the other books in this series do, it was more interesting and a bit different from all of the other storylines. It seemed more mature for lack of a better word and less like a cozy mystery.

What I love about this book and the others in the series is that it's an easy, fun read that lets me escape reality for a brief time. I keep hoping that Stephanie will choose between Joe Morelli and Ranger, but despite her saying she wants Joe, Stephanie always ends up fooling around with Ranger. What I love about this book is that there are two main mysteries that intertwine with each other that are of course solved and wrapped up at the end. Of course, there are the laugh out loud moments. My favorite has to do with the nude beach scene. I gave Notorious Nineteen (Stephanie Plum, #19) by Janet Evanovich five out five stars and look forward to reading the rest of the books in the series.
