Plum Spooky by Janet Evanovich
rating: 4 of 5 stars
I really enjoyed this "between-the-numbers" outing with Stephanie Plum. It reminded me of some of the early books, with a number of sheer belly laugh moments. Diesel is the featured male character in this novel, along with Wulf, his bad guy brother. Joe and Ranger are almost incidental although one of the funniest moments in the book occurs when Joe's brother Anthony is injured by an outraged girlfriend in a unique manner. (don't want to give it away!) Diesel is joined by Carl the Monkey as well as the troop of helmet-wearing monkeys Carl liberates. As usual, Stephanie's attempts to capture the FTA's lead her and Lula into danger and this time, Stephanie foils an evil plot to control the weather.
What can I say? I think this was one of the best installments in a while. The only thing I missed in this one was Grandma Mazur's direct involvement.
