2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed Janet Evanovich Fan 3 Feb 2004
By Rachel
Format:Hardcover
I am a massive fan of the Stephanie Plum series of books, and I really looked forward to this one; I saved it for 4 weeks to take on holiday with me. First of all it was short compared to the usual books and it just was not as laugh-out-loud funny as the usual books. Lastly, the whole story seemed a bit pointless - I got the impression that this book had just been written for the sales. I've read To The Nines since, which was superb, so am guessing that this is just a one-off. I really wouldn't waste your money on this one - if it's one special offer, great; if not, just do not bother.

4.0 out of 5 stars Christmas in new jersey 25 Mar 2003
Format:Hardcover
I'm sorry, but anyone who gave this book a bad rating just didn't get it!!!
Please bear in mind that American are very big on holidays, this is why every year the "Simpsons" will have a thank giving /christmas special on Fox...
As an American ( from New Jersey no less) Evanovich follow on that trend and wrote a good Chistmas tale which is both amuzing and modern.
But make no mistake, it is what it is: A chrismas special, and as such, it didn't deserved the poor rating it has received by some of the readers.

Ok, so we all know Stephanie Plum is the bounty hunter from hell and more often than not has bad luck...who else could have to try and slap cuffs on Sandy Claws for being FTA 5 days for Christmas? Christmas is coming fast and Steph is as unorganized as ever- only this time her life is even more complicated by the arrival of the mysterious Diesel. The part with the elves made me laugh right out loud on the bus- another brilliant read from Janet Evanonvich.
My only minor disappointments were that it was shorter than I would have liked- but thats true of all her novels, (you end up turning the pages faster at first as it is so good, and then slower as you try to make it last!) and there was not as much Joe or Lula as I would have liked...which is why I gave it four stars instead of 5.
So kick back, grab your donught and coffee and prepare for a Christmas story that will really make you glad you bought the book...and watch out for the Christmas shopping tips from Lula...

5.0 out of 5 stars Delightful Christmas Confection 10 May 2004
Format:Audio Cassette|Verified Purchase
Stephanie Plum already has two gorgeous men in her life, Morelli and Ranger, so when a third stunning male suddenly appears in her flat one day, you can't help feeling it's a little unfair. The sexy newcomer is Diesel, who has mysterious powers. He is, apparently, there to help Stephanie find her latest FTA, toymaker Sandy Claws, and to help her enjoy Chrimstas too. Not surprisingly, he creates quite a stir in the Plum household. Almost all the regualr characters are in this story, only Ranger is absent, and there is a welcome reappearance of the irascible dwarf Randy Briggs. The scene in the toy factory, where Stephanie is attacked by a horde of enraged elves,is particularly hilarious. Lula's novel method of parking at the shopping mall should win the admiration of any motorist. This delightful book is beautifuly read by Lorelei King, who is marvellous at doing all the voices (her Randy Briggs is particularly good). There are more laughs and thrills in this slender story than there are in many books ten times the length.

5.0 out of 5 stars Visions of Sugar Plums 17 Jun 2003
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
An hilarious Stephanie Plum story for Christmas, involving elves,
Santa Claus, and (of course) a drop-dead gorgeous man( angel ?)
called Diesel. Unputdownable, I read it three times over Christmas. The Stephanie Plum books just get funnier and funnier
with each new one, this one is sublime. I nearly did myself an injury laughing at the part where she gets attacked by crazy elves. Does Stephanie really need anotheer gorgeous man in her
life though? Oh well, why not, it's Christmas after all.

4.0 out of 5 stars The *dawgrrl* review 12 Feb 2003
Format:Hardcover
Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum is back and just as funny as ever. This holiday novel is a step off the beaten path from the usual Plums though. A little bit of fantasy is thrown in, just for good measure I guess. Add some "little people" donning fake pointy ears to resemble elves, an FTA who bears a strange resemblance to Santa Claus and a guy named Diesel who just "appears" in Stephanie's kitchen one morning and you have a definite recipe for hilarity. Some die-hard Plum fans may find this novel hard to swallow, but remember, it's fiction!

3.0 out of 5 stars An entertaining holiday read 17 Dec 2002
Format:Hardcover
In this novel, Stephanie Plum is looking for a fugitive named Sandy Claws ...geddit? This latest book in the Stephanie Plum series is more of a "holiday interlude" than the previous eight books, but is entertaining nonetheless. All the usual suspects make an appearance: Lula, Grandma Mazur, Morelli, Stephanie's family, and there is a new studmuffin, both for Grandma Mazur and Stephanie.
The plot is a bit thin and the characters are a bit under-developed, hence the three stars, but the book is very entertaining and should instil readers with some holiday spirit.
If you haven't read any of the Stephanie Plum books, this might not be a good place to start as the other books are funnier and more complex, but real fans won't be disappointed.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed Fan 20 Sep 2003
Format:Hardcover
I am an avid reader of Stephanie Plum's adventures and looked forward to reading this "special". However, it was really disappointing and not up to the usual standard of "laugh out loud" humour I've come to expect. Let's hope this is only a blip in what is otherwise an excellent series.
