Lean Mean Thirteen

Lean Mean 13

Do you read Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series? No? What's wrong with you!!!?? Seriously folks, these are some of the funniest books out there (well, at least in my limited experience). Okay - granted - the first two or three, maybe not so much. And maybe she loses some of her edge now and then (like in seven, maybe 12 - can't remember), but overall, they're great, quick, easy mysteries that will have you laughing out loud. Chris won't read them on airplanes because people stare at him when he laughs out loud. I kid you not.

And this one is no exception. Stephanie is tracking down her missing ex-husband along with usual sidekicks Lula, Connie, Ranger, Moretti and even Grandma. Of course, there are some crazy antics (don't ask about the taxidermist) and a good bit about the cable company. So basically, if you're behind like me, go read this installment (14 was published last year and will be out in paperback shortly and 15 should come out in hardcover soon). If you've never read these, start!

Other Thinks (15)


Hmmmm, I haven't read anything from the Stephanie Plum series in years. Thanks for the reminder -- this could be perfect for my trip!


I love Stephanie Plum, and I maybe love Grandma just a little more. I know what Chris means, especially when her mother is reaching for the bottle in the kitchen. Enjoy.

Oh, Marcia - she was reaching for that bottle often during this book - grandma got herself a boyfriend :D.


I need to get reading. I think I have only read the first three.

I LOVE this series! There aren't that many books out there that are laugh out loud funny like these. And what a great dilemma...Ranger or Joe?

Have you read any of the "between the numbers" books? I haven't but have thought about it.

Kim [TypeKey Profile Page]:

Annie, I've read the Christmas one (which was hysterical - thinking of the elves still makes me laugh), and the plum lovin (I think that's what it's called) but haven't read the last two, Plum Lucky and....Plum Spooky yet. I just looked and 15 comes out on June 23rd.

I need to bite the bullet and get those "in between" ones then. And I had no idea that #15 was coming so soon! That's exciting.

Kim [TypeKey Profile Page]:

Annie, I have sugar plum fairies which I can send you (I somehow ended up w/ 2 copies of that one), and as soon as I read plum lucky (maybe I'll kick it out tomorrow), I can send that along too.

I have never read any of these. Which one should I start with?

Kim [TypeKey Profile Page]:

Girasoli, start with One for the Money or if you want to make a commitment, you can get the Boxed Set, which contains 1 (1, 2, 3): Contains One for the Money, Two for the Dough and Three to Get Deadly. Or, if you like, once everyone is awake I can check around to see if I still have my copy of the first one and bring it to HI in a couple of weeks.

Oh, and Annie, I finished Plum Lucky - let me know if you want me to send it to you.

Kim, thanks! I'd love to read them.

Kim [TypeKey Profile Page]:

Annie, just send me your snail mail address. I'll try to find a Naab book too to throw into the mix.

Just catching up on some blogs.
Funny,I just "found" Fearless Fourteen in my stash few weeks back and read it. It was funny, even if a bit silly. I guess I should go back and read earlier books in the series.


Hmm, Ranger or Joe - for me there's no problem, I would take Joe in a heartbeat.

Thanks Kim, I'll email my snail mail address.

Very interesting that Marcia would go straight for Joe. He is the best choice but still, it wouldn't be that easy of a decision for me.
