4.0 out of 5 stars Vintage Plum but she does need to move on... 30 Jun 2009
Format:Hardcover
This is the fifteenth in the Stephanie Plum series and if you like the books and want more of the same (which I do) then this is definitely one for you. On the other hand, the other reviews I have read are correct, there is NO forward momentum here and the plot is far too thin. The first book was quite dark, although funny, and that mix worked. But even though all the usual characters are here and as funny and charismatic as ever, this is the fifteenth book and Stephanie's story needs to move on. What's the point of having all the shooting and exploding cars if there is no real feeling of threat? This series would usually be a no-brainer 5 stars for me but this one only got a fourth star instead of three because some of the passages involving Lula had me laughing out loud (despite my usual dislike of playground humour), and deserved a star all of their own. I hope Evanovich reads reviews and takes the comments on board, because it would be such a shame if Stephanie Plum was a victim of her own success.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fun, funny but not enough Morelli 21 Jun 2009
By FCS
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Number 15 in the series and it's the usual mix of chaos, murder, burning cars, and Cluck-in-a-Bucket chicken. The story is light and fun and there are some laugh-out-loud moments, with the 'mystery' element taking a back-seat to the general story which revolves around Lula's adventures with barbecue sauce and Ranger's problems with RangeMan (which see Stephanie back in his 300 thread-count sheets).

BUT there are some complaints: 1. it's short and the story feels underdeveloped compared with books in the middle of the series, 2. not enough Morelli in particular (Stephanie and Joe are in an 'off' phase) 3. there's very little sexual tension at all, even with Ranger. However, the biggest problem for the fans however is that it is simply another 'same-old' book; there is no character development nor any moving forward with Stephanie's life (love life or anything else). I love this series, adore the characters and thoroughly enjoy the fast-paced chaos, but I really think it's time for Ms Evanovich to make a decision and take a definite step forward in Stephanie's life - even that means ending the series.

Overall it's a light-hearted, good read which will leave you smiling, but if you were hoping for more, you're going to be disappointed.

1.0 out of 5 stars Nothing new; same old, same old 16 Aug 2009
Format:Hardcover
I love the Stephanie Plum series, and have eagerly awaited the new releases in the past. However, 15 was a huge disappointment. How much longer can Evanovich draw out the increasingly boring sexual tension between Morelli and Stephanie, and Ranger and Stephanie? Overall, the plot was awful, and an appallingly hurried ending. This book needn't have had a plot at all, as the story was dull, and never engaged me at all. The ending was rushed, and nowhere near as fresh and humourous as earlier books in the series. I hate to be disappointed, as Evanovich was unique, daring, and alot darker in the first few books. I can't help feeling the series should have been wound up by book 10, as there are no new characters, no new ideas, and this book feels as if you have read it all in previous books in the series. Is Evanovich now a victim of the need to publish a new novel on an annual basis even if she has no new ideas? Go back and read books 1-5, then you will have already covered what happens in this dullfest anyway, but will enjoy a much more enjoyable read!

1.0 out of 5 stars Slopping it out 18 Nov 2009
By Joseph Haschka HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
"Just shoot me now" - Stephanie's Dad in FINGER LICKIN' FIFTEEN

I hear ya, Mr. Plum! I share your pain.

Ok, ok. I understand that author Janet Evanovich and her publisher have a cash cow in the continuing Plum saga. At worst, the series will gain new adherents at the same rate that old ones fall away disillusioned and the money stream will continue at a steady flow. But, does the slopping out of a new book any old way in the act of whoring for the consumers' dollars have to be so obvious? At some point, doesn't it become a cheeky affront to the fan base even as the author skips off to the bank to deposit the funds enticed out of the readers' piggy banks?

I used to be a big Stephanie enthusiast when the concept was fresh. But, after the fourteenth installment, I swore I wouldn't buy another - even a second-hand copy for pennies. And I didn't. FINGER LICKIN' FIFTEEN was a cast-off freebie tossed my way that I read in a single sitting in a jury pool assembly room waiting for the clarion call to exalted civic duty. I should have stuck with the tattered and dog-eared ancient copies of the National Geographic and People magazines, which at least had pictures to arrest my glazed-over eyesight.

FINGER LICKIN' FIFTEEN is a repetitive, unimaginative, stagnant rehash of every mental sight gag in the repertoires of Stephanie, Lula and Grandma Mazur. At times, I thought that Evanovich was trying to win a bet over how many of such she could cram between the covers. The continuing Plum-Ranger relationship, which the author presumably includes to supply her concept of sexual tension, has degenerated into complete nonsense; no police board of inquiry would fault Morelli for shooting both with his service revolver.
