A Definate MUST READ!

I started this series on #6 I had to go to the library and get the first to last books! I laughed till I cried with every book! I am originally from Jersey and there are too too many Jerseisums for me to count! Hiliarious Read!

The characters are there, but the balance is off

I have read (and re-read) every Stephanie Plum novel to date, and (Sorry, Janet!) Hard Eight is just not up to snuff. I miss Grandma Mazur (she should at least threaten someone with a gun), I miss Joe (Stephanie's soul-mate!) and, although he's in it a lot, I miss Rang...
I have read (and re-read) every Stephanie Plum novel to date, and (Sorry, Janet!) Hard Eight is just not up to snuff. I miss Grandma Mazur (she should at least threaten someone with a gun), I miss Joe (Stephanie's soul-mate!) and, although he's in it a lot, I miss Ranger! What have you done with him?!? He's still sexy, he's still hot as a pistol, but the passion that emanated off the page with his and Steph's flirtations in the last three books are strangely absent here ... while he fills the page and makes daydreamers of us all, for his and Steph's ultimate moment, it's as though he checked more than his gun at the door. I realize that Steph's deepest soul belongs to Morelli, but she's hot for Ranger ... don't give us cool reflections at a time that needs unbridled heat!

    Boring

    I loved the first 6 novels, but the last 2 are sliding downhill at a fast pace. Is Ms. Plum's father gone mute? Grandma on her deathbed? These were two characters that you could always count on for the most laughs. In this book they seem to have gone the way of the buffalo. And what about Ranger? All this build up. For what? From the author's picture, her description of Ranger and the continual leading to the payoff, I erroneously assumed she knew something about sex. The payoff wasn't worth a dime. No foreplay, no romance and no passion on either character's part. I cannot decide if Ranger is a wether, which completely destroys his character, is Stephanie an ice queen with a poor memory, or the author simply has no clue how to put a sensual experience to paper. Ms. Evanovich's books are not in the children's section. I'm not asking for porn. But over 6 books you don't lead the readers to a blank page. I give the book a zero.
