Book Review: Plum Lucky

Plum Lucky ( Stephanie Plum #13.5/A Stephanie Plum Holiday Novel)
Janet Evanovich

Genre: Chick Lit, Crime & Thriller, Humor
Publication: January, 2008
Format: Hardback, 176 pages

My mother and grandmother raised me to be a good girl, and I have no problem with the girl part. I like men, malls and carbs. Not necessarily in that order. The good part has been spotty. I don’t steal cars or sniff glue, but I’ve had a lot of impure thoughts. And I’ve acted on a bunch of them. Not limited to, but including, snooping through a guy’s closet in search of his underwear. On the surface, this doesn’t sounds like a majorly hot experience, but this was no ordinary guy, and I couldn’t find any underwear. – Plum Lucky, Janet Evanovich, Page 1, Paragraph 1.

I was really lucky. I got myself a copy of hardback Plum Lucky with cheaper price. How cheap? Well, imagine the paperback version with 50% discount. I know... I was really lucky! And it wasn’t that this book was a used book. It’s new. 

When grandma Mazur found a duffle bag full of cash, she disappeared. Worried, Stephanie’s mother asked her to find her grandma and Stephanie tracked down her grandma at a casino in Atlantic City. Stephanie then learns that grandma Mazur got the money from Snuggy (who thinks he’s a leprechaun). Snuggy was after grandma and the money. And Diesel was after Snuggy and the money. It turned out that Snuggy stole the money from a mob. The mob was pissed. So he kidnapped Doug as hostage. But apparently, Stephanie and her friends couldn’t return the money as they have spent them in Atlantic City.

Plum Lucky was the third Stephanie Plum between-the-numbers novel. As a fan of Stephanie Plum, there’s no way that I’m going to miss this one. As usual, Evanovich never failed to make me laugh out loud with this series. It was hectic, lunatic and full with sexy men – a perfect recipe for Stephanie Plum book.

Book Cover's Description

Looking to get lucky?

Stephanie Plum is back between-the-numbers and she’s looking to get lucky in an Atlantic City hotel room, in a Winnebago, and with a brown-eyed stud who has stolen her heart.

Stephanie Plum has a way of attracting danger, lunatics, oddballs, bad luck . . . and mystery men. And no one is more mysterious than the unmentionable Diesel. He’s back and hot on the trail of a little man in green pants who’s lost a giant bag of money. Problem is, the money isn’t exactly lost. Stephanie’s Grandma Mazur has found it, and like any good Jersey senior citizen, she’s hightailed it in a Winnebago to Atlantic City and hit the slots. With Lula and Connie in tow, Stephanie attempts to bring Grandma home, but the luck of the Irish is rubbing off on everyone: Lula’s found a job modeling plus-size lingerie. Connie’s found a guy. Diesel’s found Stephanie. And Stephanie has found herself in over her head with a caper involving thrice-stolen money, a racehorse, a car chase, and a bad case of hives.

Plum Lucky is an all-you-can-eat buffet of thrills, chills, shrimp cocktail, plus-size underwear, and scorching hot men. It’s a between-the-numbers treat no Evanovich fan will want to miss!
