Reading a mystery by Janet Evanovich always provides me with laugh-out-loud moments, and “Finger Lickin’ Fifteen” didn’t let me down. For a mystery book with humor (or a humor book with mystery), Evanovich is my go-to author.
In the 15th of the numbered mysteries, bounty hunter Stephanie Plum and her friend Lula try to solve the murder of a TV chef. Along the way, Stephanie eats some less-than-delicious barbecue, runs afoul of a pyromaniac, tries to outsmart high-tech burglars, and dresses up in a hot dog costume. What’s not to like?
For romance fans, the fun and mayhem also includes Stephanie’s ongoing struggle to figure out whether her true love is Morelli, a Trenton, N.J., cop, or Ranger, a dressed-in-black man of mystery.
“Finger Lickin’ Fifteen” hit the bookstores in late June. It’s still on the NYT’s best-sellers list, which means a substantial discount at many bookstores.
