    I don t understand why everyone is complaining about the formatting of the books They are cupcakes for the brain we know it, Janet knows it, so stop expecting a gourmet meal Sometimes you just need a funny little fluffer nutter of a book to rip through in 90 minutes flat and then promptly forget I will impatiently buy this book in hardcover, love it, and leave it to the maelstrom of eager female family members.

    September 19th, 2012 Please, PLEASE let this be the last book At this point I m only reading out of loyalty, and because I want to see who Stephanie ends up with With the same jokes and the same back and forth between Morelli and Ranger, I m definitely ready to say goodbye to this series Even though it should have ended several books ago, when it s finally over I ll look back on it fondly for what it used to be.January 26th, 2013 Just finished reading this and it was SO much better than the September 19th, 2012 Please, PLEASE let this be the last book At this point I m only reading out of loyalty, and because I want to see who Stephanie ends up with With the same jokes and the same back and forth between Morelli and Ranger, I m definitely ready to say goodbye to this series Even though it should have ended several books ago, when it s finally over I ll look back on it fondly for what it used to be.January 26th, 2013 Just finished reading this and it was SO much better than the last few Full review to come soon.February 21st, 2013 This review was originally posted on my blog, Ramblings of a Daydreamer You can find it, and manyreviews at the blog.Notorious Nineteen, in my opinion, is the best thing Evanovich has written in years For me, the Stephanie Plum series started going downhill several books ago, and I only continued reading them out of a sense of loyalty and curiosity With each new book, I was shocked the series hadn t come to an end, and I was getting extremely frustrated the characters never changed, the jokes were always the same, and it seemed to me like Evanovich had become a very lazy writer.I went into Notorious Nineteen with a healthy amount of trepidation I vowed that if things didn t begin to progress in this book, I would give up on the series until the final book, at which time I would see if Stephanie had chosen Ranger or Morelli Since, at one time, this series was my absolute favourite, I am very pleased to say I actually enjoyed Notorious Nineteen.It felt like the story was infused with a new light that s been missing from the last few books There was actual character progression, which has been lacking for a long time We got some insight into not only Stephanie s character, but also Ranger s There were new jokes, new problems, new characters, but at the same time, the story carried all the things that once made and hopefully will now continue to make the Plum books such a great series The mystery held my attention and kept me guessing what would happen next, and there was the right amount of tension and humour Overall, Notorious Nineteen was very enjoyable I know many people who have given up on the series altogether, or who are undecided on this book, but I say if you re a fan of the series, you should definitely read this book It was nice to be reminded why I loved this series so much when I started it several years ago I hope Evanovich keeps it up since the series doesn t look like it ll be ending any time soon

    I began reading the Stephanie Plum mystery series years ago and got through number eighteen around 2012 when I stopped I am not really sure why, but I was in a reading slump for a few years When that ended, I didn t go back now I m on a kick to close out all series I used to love so I m fully caught up I picked up Notorious Nineteen by Janet Evanovich at the library last week and finished it last night Why did I stop I asked myself ten pages in when I had to hold my bladder to prevent I began reading the Stephanie Plum mystery series years ago and got through number eighteen around 2012 when I stopped I am not really sure why, but I was in a reading slump for a few years When that ended, I didn t go back now I m on a kick to close out all series I used to love so I m fully caught up I picked up Notorious Nineteen by Janet Evanovich at the library last week and finished it last night Why did I stop I asked myself ten pages in when I had to hold my bladder to prevent spontaneous bursting Maybe it s a good thing I waited so long as it was like reading the series all over again this time had me nearly wetting myself a few times It might be formulaic, but it works.Stephanie Plum is a disaster She s smart and feisty, but she just always gets herself in trouble That s why we love her When it comes to capturing bond breakers, or dealing with her new bestie, Lula, a former ho, to use her terms, you can t not laugh out loud Between their trips to Cluck in a Bucket chicken joint or misusing guns and shooting people or their own toes, it s hilarious I also love the back and forth between Ranger and Morelli, but I know it might get old again soon Either way, picking the series back up after almost 7 years was a good decision.In this one, she s got 3 different perps she s trying to capture Evanovich is politically incorrect and non apologetic about it but in a good way Some might be offended, but it s done in a way where hopefully it s not about calling out a certain thing or personality or race creed religion disability style to make fun of it That thing or person being focused on could be ANYTHING, It s just about laughing at a situation for instance, Lula the ho is a few pounds overweight or possibly 100 pounds overweight we never really know but she constantly gets into situations where her weight poses an issue Lula herself laughs about it, but there are also a few lines about how she feels great and she looks sexy and she knows she needs to check that she s healthy and not hurting herself long term by binge eating et al There s a balance Stephanie does the same thing with her hair or apartment or car being blown up or caught on fire It s just about exaggeration That said, I can understand why someone could get offended and I respect people s opinions if they feel this can be hurtful in any way I do not think the author is intending to be hurtful Okay, that out of the way seriously how many times is Stephanie gonna get hit with a stun gun Or think she has a perp only to have them wriggle away Or be car jacked It s always funny I could say it s repetitive, and maybe it is, but at the same time, I m laughing out loud I m wanting to smack her for the stupidity, but I love her So I enjoy it for what it is a 3 hour escape that makes me feel like everything in my own world is a whole lot better Love ya, Stephanie Plum On to 20 next month

But ultimately, it was the same as the earlier books This book is not great It isof the same, but it does have a few laugh out loud moments I feel like I should explain where I am coming from on this series I don t happily or easily give this book a low rating The Stephanie Plum series now has 19 regular novels and several in between novellas The first book was published in 1994 1994 and Ms Evanovich is still writing about the same character Stephanie Plum, bail bondswoman While Stephanie s clothes may have changed and the accessories she carries are different since the first books, Stephanie is surprisingly the same character she was in the first book, with small changes Stephanie hasn t aged, she hasn t matured, she eats the same foods, has the same hamster as a pet, has the same familial relationships and the same job 19 years later and the character is static I am a long time reader of this series, while not having started in the 1990s, this series is one of the first series as an adult that I read and one of the first books in audio that I listened to To be fair, I moved on to other series and was excited to learn that there wereto books than classics, literary fiction, mysteries and crime fiction I can attribute my learning that lesson to Janet Evanovich I will always love classics, literary fiction, mysteries and crime fiction but I am a woman that likes variety in her books and I am constantly genre jumping.I began listening to the Stephanie Plum series around 2004 I was hooked after the first book light, funny and unlike anything I had been reading all of my life I would rush to the library and look for the next in the series and within weeks I had read listened to all the available Stephanie Plum books Then, I began waiting for the new releases in the series and buying them in hardcover Janet Evanovich didn t disappoint She published a new book every year and often released season novellas involving Stephanie Plum I bought them all All Brand new and in hardcover My relationship with Stephanie Plum is one that I invested time and money in I kept hoping, wondering would Stephanie make a choice It had to be Ranger, right Right He IS the fantasy, isn t he What would Lula do in the next book Would Stephanie ever learn how to shoot her gun Would Lula ever lose weight Would Stephanie ever choose a guy Would Stephanie ever havesex with Ranger And my waiting for the answers to these questions spanned years, a decade, and my waiting marked a decline in my interest in this series Herein though, lies the problem with this series Stephanie never makes a decision Stephanie never matures The original depth and quirkiness of Stephanie and the side characters, like Grandma Mazur and Lula, have become caricatures of their original characters It is almost as if somewhere around book 13, Ms Evanovich decided to focus on only the elements of her characters that she thought readers liked and the result was characters without any depth and who merely repeated the same actions over and over again Lula wants fried chicken Grandma Mazura wants some action and tries to get it by attending funeral homes Stephanie s mom is an alcoholic when did that happen Ranger says Babe , all the time and has a lot of cars Morelli is horny, likes to eat and wants Stephanie to quit her job And during all of this, Stephanie wants two men, sucks at suspect apprehension and continues to have her best relationship with her hamster Rex She continues to attend family dinners where pot roast, stuffed peppers, meat loaf, roast beef and other old fashioned standards are served So around book 13 or 14 I stopped buying these books and started checking them out from the library I stopped having hope and excitement for each book and started realizing that each book only brought the same story again and again and again It wasn t that I didn t like these themes, because I do, I did But the constant repeat of the identical themes and story lines in each book was boring and frustrating.I did not finish Smokin Seventeen 2011 , I just couldn t So I put it down And I didn t read Explosive Eighteen 2011 So I cannot tell you if Notorious Nineteen is better than the last two books What I can tell you is that it offers nothing new from the other Plum books and I was able to read it without confusion having not read the previous two books I knew who the bad guy was and why he was doing it From the beginning of the book, I knew what happened to the missing bond target So what does Notorious Nineteen offer readers Bob steals Morelli s food Grandma wears funny clothes Lula eats a lot of food Grandma wants to help with the investigation Ranger calls Stephanie Babe Several times Stephanie is not good at being a bail bondswoman Inconceivably, Ranger hires Stephanie to help him with a dangerous job Does Stephanie bring her gun to this job Nope, she leaves it at home Stephanie s mom drinks a lot Stephanie s dad seems uber focused on fried chicken Stephanie is late on the rent Stephanie is hot for Ranger Morelli is horny Grandma and Lula are almost interchangeable There is humor based on old people, short people and fat people Stephanie wants to get married and again notes that Ranger is not the marrying type There is some sort of oddly placed acknowledgement that the food they are eating clogs arteries and at least once, Stephanie opts to have a salad And some odd philosophizing by Stephanie where she wonders if carrying guns and using guns is contributing to violence I say these things are odd, not because I disagree with the sentiments but because they are just sort of inserted in The best moment of this book is a scene at a nude beach involving Lula, Stephanie and their bond target that they need to apprehend I admit to laughing out loud several times during this scene Thank you Ms Evanovich for that nudey beach scene There are three car bombings fires in this book Not just one, but THREE Ranger s reaction He says, Babe and provides a new car Remember Joyce Remember why Stephanie s marriage fell apart Well, I think Stephanie forgot She is now in a relationship with Morelli yet kisses Ranger and lets him fondle her breast Let me be clear Ranger is my preferred hero in this series and I have no problem with a character who makes her own sexual choices but that is not what Stephanie is doing She makes a choice to be with Morelli, he believes they are seeing each other exclusively and she just drifts into Ranger s arms while on a job without making a choice because his hotness apparently overwhelms her.Ms Evanovich, I know you have a successful formula with these books Fans have enjoyed this series now going into its third decade Thank you for everything you have given us But please, please let s have some story line advancement here If I wanted to read the same story again and again, I would just pick up an older book in the series As it is, I won t be back until I hear from other readers that the next books in the series because I know there will some have some character progression.Readers who were happy with the last few books, will likely enjoy this book Readers who have been frustrated with this series should probably give Notorious Nineteen a pass
