Book Review: Welcome Home, Caroline Kline by Courtney Preiss

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

book review of game on tempting twenty eight stephanie plum 28 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.
