Book Description

16 Aug 2011

The first in a new series, LIZZY AND DIESEL, from bestseller JANET EVANOVICH. For fans of her Stephanie Plum series, featuring SMOKIN' SEVENTEEN and EXPLOSIVE EIGHTEEN.

Meet brand-new heroine Elizabeth Tucker: Marblehead resident, bakery worker, unlucky in love...and descendant of witches.

Life is pleasantly predictable for Lizzy, until a tall, black-haired, dark eyed man shows up. His name is Gerwulf Grimoire, also known as Wulf. And he wants what Lizzy has: knowledge. Almost simultaneously comes another man, a different man, but this one just as dangerous. His name is Diesel. And he wants several things Lizzy has, only one of them being knowledge.

Unbeknownst to Lizzy, she has the ability to find 'empowered objects'. A collection of stones that represent the seven deadly sins have made their way to Marblehead. If the stones are grouped together, they have the power to unleash hell on earth. Wulf wants them. Diesel wants to stop him. And Lizzy is the key to all of it.

Can Lizzy stay one step ahead of two men who both want her...both body and soul?

4.0 out of 5 stars Funnier than I was expecting 19 Dec 2010
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I have read other novels written by Janet Evanovich and I always find her style funny and entertaining but this book was a bit better than I was expecting. This is a simple story but well organized and the action starts off on the first chapter, without the usual long and tedious introduction chapters where characters tell how their parents met and fell in love. It has a lot of good ingredients to make this a charming book for christmas holidays. There is a crazy town full of magical or "unmentionables" and some "questionables" that confuse spells. We have gluttony in all of its possible forms and cupcakes galore. We have a main character that is funny and easy to like and two magical guys. I was not sold in the choice of names, because, come one, the guy is called Diesel and that was a bit too much for me, but he is funny, although too similar to a certain cop in the Stephanie Plum series (yes, I am looking at you Joe Morelli)
I do prefer this book to the S.Plum series, I think the author has achieved a better style here, it is fast, funny and keeps you interested in finding out what will happen next. But, beware, the book deals with the seven sins and guess what? This book is just the beginning, at least there should be six more coming in the near future.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun reading 20 Sep 2010
This is the first book I bought by Janet Evanovich. I have read the synopsis of some of her previous books, but never felt compelled to buy them.
However, reading the first few pages of 'Wicked Appetite', I realised that this was going to be a really fun(ny) and entertaining story and bought it.

I was not disappointed. A great and fun story, which made me laugh out loud in several places. Loved the characters of Lizzy and Diesel (I wouldn't mind a bodyguard like Diesel for myself), and adored the character of Gloria aka Glo (hope to see more of her as Lizzy's sidekick).

There were, however, two things I didn't like: One was the monkey: apart from giving the finger every 3 minutes, he didn't do much else. I found him irritating and he didn't add anything important to the story.
And secondly, I didn't care for the neverending cries of "Jeez Louise" which came from Lizzy, who is supposed to be 28 years old, and not 13.
Other than those two things, I really enjoyed the book.

1.0 out of 5 stars Left me with a great sense of disappointment 15 Sep 2010
Janet Evanovich is the well-known author of the Stephanie Plum series of books, and here she begins another series that edges firmly into the paranormal arena. Elizabeth Tucker lives in Marblehead, just north of Boston, and makes cupcakes for a living while living in the house bequeathed to her by Great Aunt Ophelia. Her life is perfectly pleasant but very ordinary when two men walk into it and proceed to turn it upside down. One is Wulf and he is a Bad Man. The other is Diesel, our Alpha Male, who explains to Liz that she is an Unmentionable and has to help him search out the SALIGIA stones (so named because of taking the first initials for the Latin names of the Seven Deadly Sins). Wulf is also looking for the stones and so Liz is caught in a race against time to discover their whereabouts.

I was really looking forward to Wicked Appetite when I first heard about it - I thought it sounded amusing and exciting. Disappointingly, the reverse is true. It is very often extremely unfunny and there was not a hint of excitement to be found within the pages.

I enjoyed a few things in the book - principle amongst them the description of Liz's cupcakes, mostly because it made me hungry to eat some of them. Another large benefit was the slightness of Wicked Appetite, which meant I didn't have to endure it for too long.

There was very little other than that to enjoy. The plot was preposterous; the manner in which it was explained to Liz was paper-thin; the characters were barely two dimensional, let alone three. I couldn't tell you anything about the motivations of Diesel, Liz, Glo, Wulf and any of the rest of the cast of characters. What's more, thanks to the frivolous manner of writing, I couldn't have cared either.

3.0 out of 5 stars An improvement on the latest Plum saga 28 Nov 2010
By Mrs. K. A. Wheatley TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
I've been reading (and reviewing) Evanovich since the first Stephanie Plum book. If you like this, by the way, you should definitely read the first Plum book, One for the Money. It's way better. If you liked this and wanted to know where Diesel and Carl come from, you should read the Stephanie Plum between the numbers books, which introduce both characters. Or you could just read this as a standalone, fun, frivolous read.

If you, like me, have been hugely disappointed in the last few Plum novels, but still like Evanovich as a writer, this will be a welcome relief. It introduces new characters and new plot lines and allows Evanovich to step out of the stalemate the Plum plotting has clearly become. Lizzie bakes cupcakes for a living. She has inherited a house from her aunt Ophelia just outside Salem, and is sucked into a supernatural adventure with the advent of two men in her life, the evil Wulf, and the naughty but nice Diesel.

Diesel introduces her to a quest to find seven stones that represent the Seven Deadly sins, which if brought together by the forces of evil will apparently unleash armageddon on the world. This first book in what is clearly intended to be a series, is about gluttony, just in case the title didn't give it away.

It is light, silly and amusing. It has the potential to be more. Let's see if Evanovich dares to break out of her previous predictability and develop the series into something dynamite instead of alright.
