Book Reviews: Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum #3 – #7

DISCLAIMER: Okay, the plugin I use (the Ultimate Book Blogger) is coded for reviewing a single book, so some of the initial data is a bit odd sounding. Ignore it. As part of my hunt to find examples of why I adore the first part of this series, I spent a couple days gorging on Stephanie Plum: Three to Get Deadly, Four to Score, High Five, Hot Six, and Seven Up. I do have a chronological listing of the Stephanie Plum books on my website if you’re curious. Three To Get Deadly Trenton may be the state capitol of New Jersey, but it’s got a small town mindset, and Stephanie knows everybody from who to call to get the latest dirt to exploring their bank accounts.

I do like the twist Gerard gives to the “woman wronged” scenario. She has Eve use it on several levels. And all to the good, of course. *bats eyes innocently* And yet another reason why parents should be licensed. All that money and none of it could find love for a child…disgusting with no excuses!
