Book #: Book 13.5 in the Stephanie Plum series/ Book 3 in the between-the-numbers novella
Stephanie Plum has a way of attracting danger, lunatics, oddballs, bad luck . . . and mystery men. And no one is more mysterious than the unmentionable Diesel. He’s back and hot on the trail of a little man in green pants who’s lost a giant bag of money. Problem is, the money isn’t exactly lost. Stephanie’s Grandma Mazur has found it, and like any good Jersey senior citizen, she’s hightailed it in a Winnebago to Atlantic City and hit the slots. With Lula and Connie in tow, Stephanie attempts to bring Grandma home, but the luck of the Irish is rubbing off on everyone: Lula’s found a job modeling plus-size lingerie. Connie’s found a guy. Diesel’s found Stephanie. And Stephanie has found herself in over her head with a caper involving thrice-stolen money, a racehorse, a car chase, and a bad case of hives.
This book was hilarious!!!!
The other between-the-numbers were good, but this is my favourite for sure. It’s St Patrick’s day, and the crew are all feeling lucky. So naturally, they hit Atlantic City, and it’s just mayhem and mystery and crazy and I love it.
I think I devoured this in a day. I regret nothing. I want to read it again.
Plum Lucky rating: 9/10.
Would I re-read it? For sure.
Who would I recommend it to? Fans of the series. I think the novellas, although can be read as stand-alone books, are best enjoyed if you’ve read at least one of the other books, so you know the characters. This novella brings back a few previous characters, so having that background just adds to the story and makes it all that more better.
