However, I was surprised to be charged £13.99 (currently, hardcover available with Amazon Prime for the same price). Bad Amazon, bad.
What I am saying is, if I had to do a quiz on which book number matched which storyline I wouldn't know one from another, and for me this was the least exacting of them all.
The story revolves around the fact that yet again Ms Plum is hired by Ranger to help him on a job, this time it is at an ice cream factory from which an employee has been murdered and of course discovered by Stephanie. Our hamster owning heroine while on the trail of another skip is driving the stolen ice cream truck and when she decides to check out the products in back that the body is found.
She is also on the trail of other crazy FTA's and the bounty hunter and her side kick Lula cause the usual mayhem. Much nonsense ensues, also involving Stephanie's grandmother and a her other family members. The usual foodstuffs are consumed, deli food, clucky chicken, donuts, ice cream of course and many calorie laden favourites, along with her mother's home cooked mealss which are some of the highlights of this for me.
There's a subplot involving Lula trying to get a break into reality tv with a friend of hers, who of course turns out to be eccentric and that's putting it mildly.
This irritated a little abit because Lula seemed to be especially demeaned here, and if felt sad really. The way she is portrayed as so dum and willing to do anything just really grated.
I also don't get how Ranger can be so, all that, yet he is still so interested in small town Stephanie, when presumedly he'd be dating someone much more high maintenance, and definitely be employing someone a little lower maintenance and expertly trained.
I really think this series has reached it's sell by date, if not at least approaching it. This for me was literally like phoning it in.
I'm giving this 3 stars more from nostalgic reasons rather than for the story or plot. I always bought these books as soon as they were released in hard back - this stopped at book 14 as there was definitely a drop in entertainment and story. I now wait until the paperbacks have been out a while before I purchase as I don't feel they are worth paying full price. I feel obligated to keep buying though as they're a series. I've said before and I'll say it again; Janet Evanovich really needs to think about finishing the series up.
But the stories are good and funny, although I don't think I'd want Lula as my assistant!!

Voice is so bad that I didn't get past first page. Love the books but this is not the voice of Stephanie Plum
