Janet Evanovich isn't really my cup of tea. But when this book came my way, I decided to hold on to it for a while, until I stumbed across someone who might enjoy it. It's a good quality copy, and thin enough to mail economically.

So after holding on to it for a little while, this book is now being sent all the way to Canada as part of the Secret Santa arranged by felicia-fairy. I've noticed that NeedSun has some Janet Evanovich books on her wishlist (although not this particular one) so I'm hoping she might enjoy it. It's also a Christmas themed book, which seems even more appropriate!

NeedSun will also be receiving these two books in her Secret Santa package:
The Carpenter's Pencil
The Australian Fiancé

Merry Christmas NeedSun!

Thank you very very much! I do enjoy Janet Evanovich and am looking forward to reading this one. It arrive in plenty of time for Christmas but I decided to wait until Christmas to open it. I finally found time today to journalize it. I am so sorry it took me so long.

I hope your holidays were great!

A very cute Christmas story. I would love to see Diesel in more stories or a book just about him. A very interesting concept was introduced. As always, some laugh out loud scenes.

I will be sending this book to CheriePie in the near future.

Thanks again for sending it to me!

It's Christmas in Jersey and Stephanie Plum has bigger problems than the usual thugs, robbers, thieves, and hoodlums. This time, there's someone in her apartment who just won't leave. Sure, this kind of thing has happened to Stephanie before... but in the past, she has been able to talk her way out of trouble. This time, fast talking, stun guns, and pepper spray won't remove the intruder. Visions of Sugar Plums takes Stephanie Plum on a holiday adventure and introduces a new character that readers will flip for! He's as mysterious as Ranger, as sexy as Morelli, and... well, we won't say any more. Visions of Sugar Plums is a holiday treat that will leave readers begging for more.


Sent today to Cheriepie

w00t w00t! More Stephanie Plum!! *dance* I need to stop promising all my books to other people before they're even read so I can concentrate on getting caught up on this series. I think I left off at book 4.

Thanks Joanne!! *sm00000ches*

My Review
Just whipped through books 4 through 8 of the Stephanie Plum series, along with the Between-the-Numbers Holiday short story Visions of Sugar Plums. These are such fun, quick, reads that it's hard to sit down and write a review after each one without wanting to just jump right into the next instead. :)

Even though it's been 6 years since I've last hung with her, Stephanie is still such a wonderfully fun and refreshing person to hang with! And if you haven't yet read this series, let me tell you that Evanovich definitely throws you right into the story with her writing, making you feel like you're right there next to Stephanie and Lula kicking bad guy butt (or more like the other way around usually). LOL Or even Ranger or Joe... yummmm ;)

In any case, it took me a little over three weeks to read to read all 6 books--really 5 1/4 since Visions of Sugar Plums is only 152 pages--and right after that, Mike and I watched the One for the Money movie which we'd rented from Netflix. It was hilarious and I was happy to see that the screenwriters held true to pretty much everything in the book. I don't know if that movie did well enough at the box office to justify the sequel but I'd really love it if they made one. Stephanie and the gang are definitely worthy of the big screen. :)
