I love the Stephanie Plum series, and I don't want to have to write a bad review of this latest one, but it left me with a bad taste in my mouth. I didn't like Stephanie in this - for instance, she seems to have no trouble with her conscience when rolling around in bed with Ranger, and appears to be more put out than guilty when her boyfriend Joe nearly catches them. The other characters seem to be becoming mere caricatures of themselves, and at some points I had to wonder whether Janet had really written the book (would Stephanie's mother own an ipod? would she even know what one is?)
I appreciate that having reached no. 12, it's difficult to keep things fresh, I hope she'll have the sense to produce a great final novel and not drag out several mediocre ones.
