Plum Lucky

Janet Evanovich's latest holiday novel is Plum Lucky, featuring Stephanie Plum and the usual cast in a St. Patrick's Day romp. What more do you want than a man who thinks he's a leprachaun, a horse, mobsters, and Gramdma Mazur on the loose? How about Lulu back in a casino in Atlantic City?

Evanovich definitely knows how to please her fans, writing a caper novel in which Grandma Mazur steals a million dollars from a man who stole it from the mob. When she disappears, Stephanie, Connie, and Lulu, along with Diesel, track her down to an Atlantic City casino. From previous books, you know you can't let Lulu loose in a casino. And, Grandma Mazur as a kidnap victim? Think "Ransom of Red Chief."

It's a little slow starting, but towards the end, I was laughing out loud. Grandma Mazur and Lulu are just plum funny in Evanovich's latest, Plum Lucky.

Grandma Mazur is my favorite! There wasn't enough of her in Evanovich's latest, Fearless Fourteen.
