Wicked Appetite

Wicked Appetite is Janet Evanovich's first book in a new series, The Unmentionables. The main characters are hunting for stones that, when in the wrong hands, could send the whole world into hell. Diesel, who you might remember from Between the Numbers books in her main series, and Lizzy, a cupcake baker, are the main characters along with a monkey, a one eyed cat, and a couple of Lizzy's interesting co-workers.

I really love Stephanie Plum, so I definitely wanted to see what I thought about this new series. It's fluffy like the Stephanie Plum series, so it seems similar to those books. This series has paranormal theme though: the main characters are searching for the stones using their supernatural abilities. Even though this book has paranormal aspect, it's not just another vampire book. Not even close. And, I have to admit, I'm thrilled I'm not reading another Joe/Ranger/Stephanie love triangle. (I know I'm not the only one getting a bit fatigues of that plot line.)

Wicked Appetite was worth the read, but I won't be running out for the newest book as soon as it's published like I do for Stephanie Plum. If you are a bit tired of Stephanie's love triangle, but still enjoy Evanovich's wacky stories, you should give Wicked Appetite a try. It's a funny quick read.

  1. I totally agree with you. It was a good book but one I doubt I will pre-order. And I really wish Stephanie would make up her mine!
