Wicked Business

Item Details

Janet Evanovich, mega-bestselling author of the beloved Stephanie Plum series, is back and better than ever. Her novels, hailed by GQ as "among the great joys of contemporary crime fiction," deliver rollicking adventure with crackling wit and hilarious mayhem. And, now, one of the hottest writers today returns with dynamic duo Lizzy and Diesel to prove that when hunting down bad guys, the real fun is in the chase. When Harvard University English professor and dyed-in-the-wool romantic Gilbert Reedy is mysteriously murdered and thrown off his fourth-floor balcony, Lizzy and Diesel take up his twenty-year quest for the Luxuria Stone, an ancient relic believed by some to be infused with the power of lust. Following clues contained in a cryptic nineteenth-century book of sonnets, Lizzy and Diesel tear through Boston catacombs, government buildings, and multimillion-dollar residences, leaving a trail of robbed graves, public disturbances, and spontaneous seduction. Janet Evanovich does it again and gives us another exciting un-put-down-able read that is striking a chord with readers everywhere!

I think I enjoyed this one better than the first. A quick and highly amusing read. Really loving this series so far.

The Plum and the other heroin in Florida are much better works.

Similar humor as the Plum books. Makes me want a cupcake. Plot a little hard to follow if you haven't recently read the first book.

It's a very light summer read, so don't expect any deep thought-provoking material. Having said that, I totally enjoyed it. You have to like the genre though. I thought the characters were great, and the dialogue was hilarious. It kept me engaged and I read it in one day. I look forward to the other books in the series (can't wait!).

Fun summer reading, but doesn't hold candle to Stephanie Plum books. I won't pick Lizzie and Diesel books again, while I look forward to Stephanie #19 in November!

Diesel first appeared in the “Between the Plums” issues of the Plum Series: “Visions of Sugar Plums”, “Plum Lovin’”, “Plum Lucky”, and “Plum Spooky”. I am so happy that Evanovich created a new series with Diesel; however, I wish she would occasionally add to the “Between the Plums” as the interactions between Diesel, Stephanie and all her family members were absolutely hilarious. In fact, the only reason I gave “Wicked Business” a mere four and a half stars instead of five, is because I wish the Diesel and Lizzy series would have the same degree of humor as Diesel had with Stephanie.

My name is Lizzy Tucker, and I used to think I was normal. My hair is blond with some chemical assistance. My eyes are brown from my Grandpa Harry. I’m 5’5” tall, and my breasts measure more than my waist so I’m a happy camper. I had a mildly embarrassing childhood free from any truly significant disasters. I wasn’t a cheerleader or the prom queen. I didn’t graduate with honors. I chose culinary school after high school, where I limped my way through butchering beasts and excelled at baking cakes. I was engaged and disengaged. Good riddance to him. In January, three days after my twenty-eighth birthday, I inherited a house from my Great Aunt Ophelia, and I took a job as pastry chef at Dazzle’s Bakery in Salem.
