Another easy, fast, summer read from Evanovich.
on 25 June 2013
Lizzy and her crazy entourage are back, with another Saligia stone to hunt for. Though Evanovich can still occasionally make me laugh out loud, the reason this book gets a 3 rather than a 4 star is the formulaic plot line. Slightly ditzy girl, some crazy pets (although Cat and Carl are handsdown two genius characters), strangely accommodating friends, and two drop-dead gorgeous guys fighting over the heroine. Okay, so no one quite knows what goes on in Wulf's head, but the love triangle can be spotted from a mile away. As I read this book, it felt not much different from reading a Stephanie Plum novel. But I guess that's the reason for Evanovich's success: people know exactly what to expect when they pick up one of her novels.
