Stephanie Plum's career has taken more wrong turns than a student driver on the Jersey Turnpike, and her love life is a hopeless tangle. In order to save someone dear to her, she'll have to straighten things out in Twisted Twenty-Six the latest, novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Janet Evanovich.
Grandma Mazur is a widow...again. This time her marriage lasted a whole 45 minutes. The unlucky groom was one Jimmy Rosolli, local gangster, lothario (senior division) and heart attack waiting to happen...well, the waiting's over.
It's a sad day, but if she can't have Jimmy at least Grandma can have all the attention she wants as the dutiful widow. But some kinds of attention are not welcomed, particularly when Jimmy's former "business partners" are convinced that his widow is keeping the keys to their financial success for herself.
As someone who has spent an entire career finding bad guys, a set of missing keys should be no challenge for Stephanie Plum. Problem is, the facts are as twisted as a boardwalk pretzel with mustard.
Twisted Twenty-Six (Stephanie Plum, #26) Reviews
I have read all 26 ~ yep I am a BIG Stephanie Plum fan. First one was in 1994 but hmmm isn’t that 25 years ago? Although Stephanie joked about being 56, she has got to be late in her late 40’s and yes she needs a LIFE!!
Sue Grafton was so smart in keeping Kinsey locked into the 80s and forever 35.
Perhaps these latest twenty something novels are for the youngsters as I believe I have reached my limit.
To me this is “I Quit- twenty-six” !!
I recently read several great books and picked this up for fun! Typically “The Bounty Hunter" stories are usually laugh out-loud!
Hung in there but kept questioning Hmmm when is funny going to “Kick in"?
Yikes! More on the keys and now Indiana Jones & Grandma are heading to Fortune and Glory: Twenty Seven
I was not going to review this, but I got such a kick out the author's slight digs at some of the negative reviews from the last novel. The story itself is a hilarious romp with Grandma Mazur, but we find Stephanie questioning her lifestyle, is there more than this job, is she a loser, a tramp? Also, in a distracted state, she tells Lula she is 56, which she would be if you calculate her age from the first novel in 1994 to today. All I can say is she has aged well and still makes me laugh.
Looking at my previous reviews (25, 24, 23, 22, 21, and 20) you all know where I stand. This book seems to focus a bit more on Grandma, which should be fun as she wasn't in 25 enough for a lot of readers... but I really hope Evanovich (or her ghost writer?) moves away from the terribly formulaic mess the most recent books have all been and mixes things up a bit! I guess we will find out in November... or later as I will be once again be waiting for a library copy.
Excellent! In my opinion this is the best book in the last several years. Stephanie and Lula are back at capturing bail jumpers with all the humour and excitement of the series origins. There is also a little bit of darkness which again took me back to those first books in the series. Organized crime, family in danger and lots of donuts. I enjoyed every minute.
Stephanie Plum is just pure fun. The books are always enjoyable, even if they are a bit formulaic. It works, I laugh, so I like them a lot. Janet Evanovich knows how to keep them interesting, and even though there are a few repetitive techniques, it's still something I find myself keen to read at the end of the day. Today... after a disappointing book, I needed a sure-thing, and Twisted Twenty-Six provided the relief.
Stephanie's grandmother, Grandma Edna Mazur, remarried in between books. Her husband died 45 minutes after the wedding. Two ex-wives, a few sisters, and some kids all want the money. Edna thinks she's getting it. Someone has the missing key which provides the answers. Then the mob gets involved, and three different teams of crooks are after the 75ish older woman... which one will win? At the same time, Stephanie's got a list of bail-jumpers to arrest. Lula and Connie provide all the comedy relief, but at least there weren't any crazy animals this time. Only a dog and a cat, which I expect to see running around Trenton, New Jersey.
The gun situation is out of control. So are the car bombs. The best thing is free laundry service at Mom's, all because Stephanie protects Grandma Mazur at the funeral home. And when the real criminal comes to light at the end of the book, we're still left wondering... what was up with those keys? Good thing we've got the cliffhanger to lead us to #27, which already has a name. But 27 isn't in the title, as far as I can tell. I'm so confused without my numbers.
In short... good. Not over the top. Triangle not much of a romance this time. Crazy antics ensue. The family is at an all time high! Get your copy now. :)
