Review: 148. Smokin' Seventeen by Janet Evanovich...

drey's thoughts: Oh Stephanie. Working out of a borrowed motor home, Stephanie and her gal Lula get into the same hijinks as always. They get fooled by the perps they go looking for (again), Steph's wheels go up in flames (again), Grandma Mazur causes a ruckus at the funeral home (again), Steph's mom sets her up with another it'd-be-better-to-not-go-there date (again)... If you're familiar with the series, I don't need to say any more. If you're not, start with One for the Money, where it's all fresh and new.

 Honestly, I'm not sure how much longer I'll keep picking these up. At some point, the same-story-all-the-tiime routine gets old and stale. And I hate that she's with both Morelli AND Ranger in this one. Pick one and stick with it, or dump 'em both and go find someone else! (Not that it would be easy to dump Ranger, in my opinion!)

Stephanie needs to get off of this wheel she keeps running around in. Really.

 drey's rating: Ok. What about you? Have you read Smokin' Seventeen? What did you think? Or have you given up waiting on Stephanie to grow up?

Oh Drey, I'm glad I'm not the only one with Plum fatigue! I do have to say that I enjoyed Seventeen more than say, the last four or so, it seemed to get back to some of the bones of the series. And Lula wasn't on some weird diet. Did you notice that Explosive Eighteen comes out in November, really altering the once a year we usually wait? I don't think the movie comes out until after Christmas, so wasn't sure if maybe you knew any info, with all your publishing ties! :)
