From the first page to the very end. This book was very funny and would recommend it to anyone. These new characters developed by Janet Evanovich are genius. If you love the Stephanie Plum series, you will love this book. Two Thumbs Up for this book. Cannot wait for the next one. Hurry Janet write the next one.

I love Janet Evanovich's books; have them all...hard cover, soft cover, e-books; prordered this one and waited with baited breath. What a dissappointment... the new characters barely skim one dimention and the book is silly without being funny. It reads more like a first draft than a completed novel. Wish I could love it, but I'd rather have my money back.

This was a great book! I was sitting in B&N and found out I could read free books using my nook and I somehow just found this book. I started to read it and could not put it down! I laughed out loud a few times that people turned their heads to look at me! She better be writing a sequel to this book and SOON! Will be looking at her other books now and can't wait to read them!! Two thumbs way up! :)

I have followed this writer for a long time. I have all her books. I suspect she is getting to the end of her days as a comedic writer and story teller. The characters were shallow, the humor virtually non-existant. At times I thuuoght I was reading an eighth grade homework assignment. I can't even believe her editors accepted this. I have been worried with the last numbered series of books but I thought this book might recapture some of her original talents. It did not. There are other good authors. I would step back and find another more worthy of your hard earned money. Good by Ms. Evanovich I have bought my last book authored by you. This was simply terrible; a bad buy. I wish I could take it back.

Totally immature writing. This book had no real ending; characters were shallow. Only finished it because I had nothing else to read while waiting at doctor's office. I was extremely disappointed. I enjoy her Plum books - this was very disappointing.

I had to force myself to finish this book and for the most part I did finish it because I'm very familiar with the locations in Massachusetts where the story (if you can call it that) takes place so that was interesting. However, reading this book was about as fun as having to kiss your brother. I would rather that Evanovich take a couple of years in between Plum books and give her fans what they REALLY want..the well-written, detailed, fun, sexy stories similar to the early years of Plum. All these other books are not working!! Do what you do, do it well or retire.

I found myself laughing out loud reading this book. This author has the ability to plant so much humor into her books that the reading of them automatically lifts the spirit. She entertains and her characters are real. Lizzy learns from Diesel, much to her amazement, that she is part of a small group of humans known as "Unmentionables", people with specialized skills. Hers being the power to locate lost artifacts, a skill so rare that in her case, only two others share it. Lizzy soon discovers that her culinary skills may be more than just talent. A laugh a minute! Enjoy!

Evanovich recycles her character from the Stephanie Plum in-between-the-numbers novels, Diesel. He's an Unmentionable - someone with extra powers, such as an uncanny ability to unlock any door. Only this time, Diesel is sent to protect a new heroine, who also happens to be an Unmentionable but doesn't yet know it. The story line follows the typical Stephanie Plum outline, inclusive of crazy sidekicks. Only problem is, the main characters and sidekicks are no Stephanie Plum, Lula or Grandma Mazur. And Diesel is no Ranger or Morelli. I really enjoy the Plum novels, even with their predictability, but this novel seemed like a cheap knockoff.

Ms Evanovich you did it again, Wonderfully engaging characters, Fun and exciting plot and just such a fun read the only thing I have found that I don't like about your books is having to turn that last page. Please keep them coming. ASAP!

I have read all of the Stephanie Plum books and will probably continue to read more in the future hoping they will get better, the early ones were downright hilarious. "Wicked Appetite" is pretty much the same story type as the Plum books with different names and different location but nowhere near as funny as the early Stephanie Plum books. I chuckled maybe twice but that was it. I hated Carl the monkey in one of the Stephanie Plum books and I hate him even more in this one. After reading some fantastic thriller books I wanted something fun and brainless to read and I think I got the brainless but not the fun. If Ms. Evanovich continues to write more books based on this story and characters I will probably not buy it I suggest you don't either. I have a library and usually keep most of the books I buy but I'm giving this one away to a library book donation as soon as one comes up.

Being a MA native I really enjoyed that it was set in Salem but that was just a perk. It was clever and laugh out loud funny at times. The characters are people you would like to know. I wouldn't want to ruin anyting by giving away anything. If you like the Plum novels you will love it! I loved it and I cant wait for the next one!

I couldn't put it down. It was laugh out loud funny and kept me laughing. I can not wait until the next one comes out. I love Deasel and Lizzy....throw in a monkey and a cat and it's just great.

I've been an Evanovich fan for years and have spent many happy hours reading her books. Sadly, this book was a waste of time and very difficult to finish. Truly, it was awful!

If Evanovich is going to kick off a new series, she needs to start with some fresh material. This series recycles Stepanie Plum in the form of Lizzy, Ranger as Diesel, and Morelli (just a little badder) as Diesel's cousin (Wolf? Wulf? Wulff... whatever). The other bad guys are the same level of ineptitude as Stephanie encounters, etc, etc, and so on. I'd like to say I'm surprised that something she wrote is so bad, but if you've read Evanovich's past few Stephanie Plum books you'd know it wasn't true.

That being said,totally DISGUSTED with paying $8.99 for a 192 page book. What's with that, B&N?

Completely lost interest in the first few pages since I thought I was reading another series. I could barely tell the difference.

let me start off by saying i didnt finish this book. that being said i couldnt believe it was punlished in its clearly unfinished state. i felt as though i was reading an early first draft. the descriptions were un-detailed and the dialog was very elementary. ive read young adult novels were worded better than this. dont buy it. its a waste of money. and time. if you dont take my word for it, get it at a library or read the first few pages at the store and you'll understand.

I anxiously look forward to reading the latest Diesel adventure. Sadly it was no adventure, but a terrible, bumpy ride. It was very hard to know the charecters and to truly care about their fate. At the end of the last page, I was left thinking did some pages fail to download, because surely the book could not be complete. Alas it was. It felt as though Ms. Evanovich only had a certain number of pages to fill and rushed the ending due to having run out of pages to write on.

This book was easy to read and if you read any of her other books, you will find several similarities.

I was pressed into purchasing this as an audio book at a WalMart. Listened to it in one long drive home (it was only 3 CD's) and was grateful I had it, but was hoping for a new character, not the same zany, nutty, lovable one in a new setting. I will give JE the opportunity to "flesh out" our new heroine, but it will have to be drasticly different than this one. I know you have it in you Janet, let us see it!

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It was the first I'd read from Janet Evanovich, now I'm a fan. The characters were endearing and fresh. I look forward to more adventures with Lizzy and Diesel.
