Expectations exceed reality,
By A Customer
This review is from: Hard Eight (Hardcover)
Perhaps my expectations were just too high. But, while entertaining, the eighth Stephanie Plum is just too formulaeic. Her cars get torched, stun guns backfire, her pet hamster continues to be her primary relationship, Gradma Mazur makes off color remarks, Lulu's hair sports ever more colors. Plus Stephanie still can't get her love life straightened out. In her earlier adventures, Stephanie has made me laugh til I cried. This drew a few smiles and left me feeling that I'd really like this remarkable woman to move on in her life! Do read it if you're a fan, but be warned and don't expect too much.
