Plum Pudding Murder (Hannah Swensen #12)



Business is booming at the Cookie Jar, and when Larry Jaeger is killed 12 days before Christmas Hannah is on the case. With cookie orders to bake and a murder to solve, Hannah doesn’t have much time for herself if she wants to have a nice quiet Christmas.

Ok, so this book was turned into a made for TV movie by Hallmark. So, if you’ve watch that you can ignore this book in the series. Nothing is changed in the movie really and the Killer is the same. This is another solid light mystery book however, I couldn’t get into it because I already knew the end. If you haven’t watch the movie I’m sure you will like it.

Also, I’m getting a little tire of the Mike and Norman angle. I really can’t wait till I get to book 18 so this is over.

Cream Puff Murder (Hannah Swensen #11)


Plum Spooky (Stephanie Plum #14.5)



Yes, another between the numbers book and as you can tell they are not in order. This is the first time we meet Wulf and I absolutely love Diesel’s creepy cousin.

Diesel’s back and hot on the trail of his cousin Wulf. He’s rolling with on of Stephanie’s FTAs. In order to get Munch back, Stephanie must pair up with Diesel and step back int the cooky side of Jersey though on can argue that she never left. Between Lula’s engagement to Tank and sightings of the Jersey devil. With Ranger at her back, nothing could possibly go wrong right? Yeah right, this is Stephanie we’re talking about.

As always I love Lorelei King’s reading of the book. This book is hilarious and we get to see Tank as a cat lady and he talks more in this book than any other. I love the chemistry between Diesel and Stephanie. There is no sexual tension between them, but every time that Diesel is in town, Stephanie gets closer with Ranger who is totally my OTP. This book we get introduced to even more unmentionables which expands Diesel’s world even more. The unmentionables in Jersey are all a little whacky but in a lovable way. It makes me really want more between the number books, but Diesel has his hands full in his spin-off series. Also, I love Carl the monkey who plays a huge role in this book.

Plum Lovin’ (Stephanie Plum #12.5)

Plum Lovin’ (Stephanie Plum #12.5)



I was feeling lazy and wanted to re-listen to Plum Lovin’ again. So I did and I enjoyed Lorelei King’s performance like always. The between the number book come sequentially in the series and if you fall in love with Diesel, as I have, Evanovich has a spin-off series starring out favourite unmentionable. You don’t really need to read the between the numbers in order, however, it would help and if you are reading the Plum series. I would suggest reading the between the numbers because it makes everything make more sense because they do refer back to them.

Stephnie is just going about her day when Diesel pops in. He’s hidden her only FTA because she’s being pursued by another unmentionable. The only way that Diesel got her to stay put is if he took over her caseload. the thing is Annie Hart is a relationship expert, who’s wanted for armed robbery. Stephanie agrees to take over Annie’s case load but with 3 men in her life, she might not be the best candidate.

This is a super hilarious book. I love when Diesel and Stephanie get together because you can just feel Evanovich gets to flex her creativity and funny options in the between the number books. Some of the situations that Stephanie gets into in this book, or any other book with Diesel. How all the relationships ended up in the end, was fantastic and hilarious. All in all, this is a fantastic book, and I have nothing bad to say. All I can say is that I find if very curious that Ranger and Morelli were both out of town. This is totally worth a read if you like the Plum series.
