Wicked Business is the second book from Lizzy & Diesel series. This time, Lizzy and Diesel is on a quest for Luxuria stone which is related to the seven deadly sins, lust.
I have to say that the second book of Lizzy & Diesel series is a bit disappointment. I found that the story line is a bit boring as compared to the first one. Lack of excitement, I guess. And Lizzy sounded a lot like Stephanie from Stephanie Plum series. The difference between Lizzy and Stephanie is that, Lizzy cook. Most of the other characters sounded like the characters in Stephanie Plum series. I think that the only character that I find fascinating in the book is Hatchet. I guess he’s a bit different with his Renaissance dressing, talk and all that. I actually love the way he talk.
Overall, Wicked Business is a light, fast-paced read.
