Are You Dressed to the Nines?



It is time to share another Janet Evanovich novel To The Nines.  This novel is the ninth in the Janet Evanovich Stephanie Plum series.  What trouble could she possibly get into? Are you ready for the next adventure with Stephanie and the gang?

Synopsis: 

Stephanie and Ranger have to find Albert Singh who has skipped on his visa bond.  The type of bond is different from others that Stephanie has pursued in the past. Singh worked for this company TriBro but also expressed some unusual behavior.  It is extremely important that Samuel Singh is found because it could put Vinnie her cousin out of business.  Then Stephanie would have to find another job.  In typical Stephanie fashion the case does not go as planned.  As they put together the clues to find Singh, Stephanie finds out lot more about a game he participated in.  What is this game?  How does it impact Stephanie?

My Thoughts: 

I didn’t know how I would feel about this novel initially.  I did enjoy it.  I listened to the audio version which was narrated by Lorelei King.  I feel she does a great job of narrating Janet Evanovich’s novels.  I hope that she continues.  So now let’s get back to the story.

The story is set in Trenton New Jersey.  There is a side trip to Vegas included in this novel.  The author is extremely creative when coming up with new characters or showing us growth in the ones that we know so well.   When writing a series it is always good to keep the audience or readership interested.   I am ready for my next Janet Evanovich novel.

Rating:

4.5/5

What is Your Status?



Thank you to Liz Fenton and Lisa Steinke and Simon and Schuster for a copy of The Status of All Things.  I really enjoyed the first novel Your Perfect Life, and I think my readers will really enjoy this one.  How do you feel about Facebook and the statuses you see on them?  Do constantly update your status or only report when necessary?

Synopsis: 

Kate is preparing for her wedding day.  The next task on her agenda once she locates Max is the rehearsal dinner.  Where is Max?   When she finally finds him he tells her that he doesn’t want to marry her. She is stunned by this news and goes home with her friends Jules and Liam.   Kate walks into a Starbucks with a when a very special experience occurs.  All of the sudden she finds herself with an opportunity to possibly changer her future.  She wakes up in the past before the wedding.  Will Kate’s knowledge of what will happen in her relationship with Max help her keep him?  Or will she lose him?

My Thoughts: 

I really enjoyed this novel!  Authors Liz and Lisa explore what would happen if suddenly you could wish your life into a different direction, with just posting a status update on Facebook.  How fun could it possibly is?  I don’t know that I would wish for things on Facebook myself.  How about you?

Once again this novel is set in LA.  The authors write with such realistic dialogue and characters you would want to have real conversations.   There is one character trait that is not my favorite “narcism.”  I did feel that Kate was more likable by the end of the novel.
