I love the Plum series... so when Ms. Evanovich started another series I was in!! I also love the cover you see above... if you had the book in your hands you would see that it sparkles! Here is the goodreads description:
I really didn't like the first book in this new series, Wicked Appetite. I mean I only gave it two cats! I hated that Carl the monkey was back from the Plum books. I just thought that book was all over the place. And too similar in the writing to the Plum series. But I decided to give the second book in the series a go. Especially since the one thing about Evanovich's writing is that her books are short and sweet, funny and always put me in a good mood. I am actually happy after I read one. So it came in from the library and I devoured it!
I like how this is Evanovich's fantasy series. I have always thought of fantasy to be like the Lord of the Rings, Game of Thrones, type books. But this has just enough mystery and "powers" to make it a cute little fantasy. Reading through the reviews on goodreads I see that it is getting a lot of complaints. I understand ... like I said the first book was awful but I bet if I read it again right now in the mood I am in I would love it!! haha! I love how we are finding these seven deadly sins stones and it makes me want to find out about the other 5 stones! But I will say again that this is the same writing from Evanovich as the Plum series. We've got the side kick - Glo (aka Lula), the boss Carla (Vinnie) the hunks Wulf and Diesel (Ranger and Morelli) Hatchet is the comedian which is similar to Grandma.
I recommend it to Plum fans... too bad though the monkey has to be in the books!
