Description

Watch your back...Look both ways...Because love is in the air...And that means big trouble!

Mysterious men have a way of showing up in Stephanie Plum's apartment. When the shadowy Diesel appears, he has a task for Stephanie, and he's not taking no for an answer. Annie Hart is a "relationship expert" who is wanted for armed robbery and assault with a deadly weapon. Stephanie needs to find her, fast. Diesel knows where she is. So they make a deal: he'll help her get Annie if Stephanie plays matchmaker to several of Annie's most difficult clients. But someone wants to find Annie even more than Diesel and Stephanie. Someone with a nasty temper. And someone with "unmentionable" skills.

Does Diesel know more than he's saying about Annie Hart? Does Diesel have secrets he's keeping from Stephanie and the two men in her life, Ranger and Morelli? With Stephanie Plum in over her head, things are sure to get a little dicey and a little explosive, Jersey style!

    Another fun installment, with sweet valentines day stories woven in :)

    Ligh, fun romance with a bit of mystery.

    This is the second of the "between-the-numbers" books in Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series, books that are part of the series, but shorter and weirder than the regular installments. As with the previous one, Visions of Sugar Plums, it starts with Stephanie getting a visit from Diesel, a guy with supernatural powers. (Who I think is actually a crossover character from a different series?) Where that one was Christmas-themed, though, this one features Valentine's Day, so Stephanie has to deal with various people's relationship issues and make sure everyone has a happy Valentine's Day. For... reasons.I really do not like the introduction of weird supernatural crap into this series, not because I don't like weird supernatural crap -- I read a lot of fantasy -- but because it is entirely out of place in Evanovich's wacky but otherwise realistic version of Trenton, New Jersey. It annoyed me slightly less here than it did in the previous book, though. Maybe just because I've gotten used to it. Diesel still annoyed me, though. He's clearly meant to be sexy and amusing, but mostly he's just a giant sexist douche.The plot is thin enough to be practically non-existent, and to the extent that it does exist, it's ridiculous, even by this series' usual standards. But there are some decent touches of humor, and it's an effortlessly quick read, at least.Still, I'd probably really rather skip these ones, if only Evanovich didn't keep having important events in Stephanie's family's lives happening in them.

    Not my favorite, the whole Diesel character line is just odd in this story, I'd rather have more Loula, Ranger and Morelli. :)

    Plum Lovin' is one of Janet Evanovich's Between The Numbers books and while cute, it lacks the same qualities as the numbered books do. I'm not sure how I feel about paranormal activity in Stephanie Plum's world. Isn't it crazy enough with the bounty hunting and the boys? It was good, and I would read it again because it's so quick, but I'd pass if it would take me more than an hour to read.

    Her books are always just good natured fun.

    Cute, light mystery of Stephanie Plum, lady detective, she and her side kick, Diesel, help out a relationship expert who is in jail. Their assignment is to close five open cases of clients looking for love by Valentine's Day. Funny and witty.
  • (3/5)
    This was a reasonably enjoyable interlude. Short and sweet, as befitting a Valentine's Day themed mystery novel. The mixture of supernatural with Stephanie Plum is interesting.

    Whenever I pick up an Evanovich mystery, I expect to laugh. Plum Lovin' proved me right. Although, I laughed more toward the end of the book than at the beginning. Matching Valentines for that February holiday seemed like boring work for Stephanie Plum. Anyway, things moved less sweetly as the book moved on but not as dangerously as I am use to while reading books in this series. In this one most of New Jersey is in the mood for love including those who have a huge fear of commitment. Albert is scared too death of walking down the aisle of a church and saying I do to a bride. I didn't know men could really be that afraid of taking wedding vows.Then, shynesss plays a part in upsetting love life too. One idea works for the butcher. He will talk about meat. As long as he talks about meat, he can talk. It's when he's not talking about beef and bacon that he loses his courage to speak to a woman who attracts him.All of it's fun. Still, I have more fun with the Number series by Evanovich. I began to have a really good time once Grandma Mazur, Ranger and mom and dad were back in the picture. So this little book is okay. It just doesn't make me want to go to town talking about it. Thank God, Janet Evanovich didn't leave out Lula. Even Lula seems a bit off. I just wasn't "plum lovin' this book. Will try another little one, but the best, as I said, are Janet Evanovich's bigger books with numbers. I'm due for number seven. evanovich.

    After the movie, One for the Money (I loved it), I wanted to read the books. I was half happy and half disappointed (to be fair the first few books were better than the rest - I've read 17 or 18). The writing isn't anything special but there is banter and wit (which is waning). I love her grandma, the ex-hooker, and some other random side characters - that and the witty moments kept me coming back for more.By the time of the 5th book (or at least by the 10th) you would think she would start to get the hang of her job or get a new one - nope. At a certain point she is just a pretty woman of 30ish who can't pick from 2 men (or choose to move on from both), who is bad at her job, and relies on luck and the men in her life to save her (to be fair I think of one time she was saved by a woman).So why do I keep reading? In spite of how annoying she is, and how she is hopelessly in love with 2 mildly mentally abusive men? Despite all the half attractive or good guys being over 6 ft tall for some reason and all the other men are taken or ugly? The reason is the supporting crazy characters, and the fading wit.

    I have forgotten how Janet makes me laugh.

    These books are not what I normally read because of the language but the outrageousness of them can't help but make you enjoy them.

    Stephanie is teamed up with Diesel (who reminds me of the mascot of the Houston Dynamo) and is dealing with making people have a good Valentine's day as she searches for her new bond assignment.

    All your favorite Stephanie Plum characters make an appearance : grandma, Lula, Bob, Rex, Stephanie's mom, dad and sister. Slight mention of Joe and Ranger

    Great quick read.

    The last Between-the-numbers book from this series I hated but luckily I found this one to be much better. In this one the whole supernatural thing with Diesel was more interesting than the last time. I loved seeing Stephanie try her best at being Cupid. I was pleasantly surprised by this book.

    Frankly, for this Between-the-Numbers book Evanovich is just “phonin’ it in.” The usual cast of zany supporting characters is here – Lula, Grandma Mazur, etc – and the mysterious Diesel makes a return appearance. Stephanie plays matchmaker between several couples; she even succeeds in pulling off a surprise wedding – the bride and groom don’t even know about it! While I’m still mildly entertained by the wackiness, Stephanie’s basic ineptness has lost its charm for me. On the plus side, Stephanie’s ongoing indecision between Morelli and Ranger barely gets a mention, and the book is mercifully short. The audio is only 3 discs long; the paperback text version has printing so large, I double checked to see if I’d gotten a large-print edition. (I’ve seen children’s books with tinier print.) King’s performance on the audio is great, however. She really breathes life into this tired series.

    Not as good as some of the others, but enjoyed it as always a good laugh with these characters!

    Mysterious men have a way of showing up in Stephanie Plum’s apartment. When the shadowy Diesel appears, he has a task for Stephanie-and he’s not taking no for an answer. Annie Hart is a “relationship expert” who is wanted for armed robbery and assault with a deadly weapon. Stephanie needs to find her, fast. Diesel knows where she is. So they make a deal: he’ll help her get Annie if Stephanie plays matchmaker to several of Annie’s most difficult client

    This was my second time around with this one. Stephanie and Diesel team up for some tricky matchmaking just before a Valentine's Day. What a team! At some point Stephanie always makes me laugh out loud! Light and funny is a great way to end a day. ?

    Well, she sure can churn them out! Curious to know why this book came passed me so many times working at the library I finally decided to see what all the fuss is about. Ridiculous story and faux-hip dialogue seemingly drawn from daytime television. Even the story didn't engage me at all, which is what I understand to be the real drawn of such books. I've been called a snob for refusing to appreciate these books because they are so popular and wide-selling, which I can live with sure enough as I can live with myself for not loving McDonald's.

    This one is second in the Stephanie Plum In-Between-The-Numbers Series. I don’t really get the In-Between-The-Number series, but it seems that they are relatively short stories just to whet the fan’s appetite. I audio this one and it was only 3 CDs.

    In this one Stephanie plays part detective and part relationship expert along with the mysterious and handsome Diesel in order to solve the case. Some of the old gang make appearances, like Lula and Stephanie’s crazy family, but Morelli and Ranger were seriously lacking. Overall, I thought the story was okay. There were some pretty funny parts, but the story lacked a little something for me. I give this one 2.5 stars.

    This one was too absurd to be funny. Not enough character development to work.
  • (4/5)
    I love Stephanie Plum. The Between the Numbers feel like short stories to me, not books. This one was in large print and I read it in 1 day, it felt too short.But this one is Valentine's Day with Diesel and it's pretty cute.

    Yet another funny Stephanie Plum adventure!

    Valentine's Day with Stephanie and Diesel.
  • (4/5)
    Janet Evanovich has written the perfect Valentine Day's novel! Her character,bounty hunterdetecetive Stephanie Plum, is once again paired with Diesel,supermanhuman extraordinaire to find four clients of Annie HArt and solve their love troubles. In return Diesel will give Annie to Stephanie so Annie will face assault charges. Each sub-story is funny and sad at the same time and, as with all good stories, ends as it should. This is the first of "Between-the Numbers" series i have read but I will definitely look for the first four.

    I finally read a Janet Evanovich book! But, I have to admit that I bought this at the Dollar Tree. Sorry, Janet, I hope you got more than a nickel from my purchase!I had no idea what to expect from this thin, purple book; it attracted my attention because of Janet's name, and the fact that it's under 200 pages (a quick read for my list!). It's a fun story though, and perfect for this sweetheart season.Stephanie Plum is an interesting protagonist. I picked up a second book at the Dollar Tree, Eleven on Top, and am looking forward to reading more about the bounty hunter/detective. Plum Lovin' one isn't part of her series, I think, just kind of an extended outtake where Stephanie gets to play Cupid. Cute, not too much fluff, but there's a great scene when the girls get to watch a porno flik!I challenge you to get a better deal than I did on this fun hardback!

    Not sure why I keep reading these book. I had it lying around and it was just the thing for a recent day spent at home sick. However, still left with the feeling that my time would have been better spent sleeping.
  • (4/5)
    Plum Lovin is my introduction to Evanovich's Between the Numbers novels. All kinds of kooky things happen within this book. Stephanie is after an FTA named Annie who is sort of like Cupid. Mysterious man Diesal shows up as well. Stephanie ends up playing relationship expert. Overall, this was a cute read, perfect for waiting for a doctor's appointment as it is an incredibly quick read. The biggest con is the lack of Morelli. What can I say, I have a thing for Italian men.

    Diesel needs help for Annie Hart to get five people ready for valentine's day. Bob the dog, Grandma Mazur, her sister, pregnant again (the 4th), Lula, - all the crazy, wonderful cast of regulars
  • (4/5)
    I really enjoy the between the numbers books. I like the tension between Diesel and Stephanie. When Diesel's around, there's always something strange going on. I like the author's tongue in cheek approach to the supernatural things that may or may not be going on around Stephanie and Diesel. This book centers on Valentine's Day. One of Stephanie's skips has been quarantined by Diesel because she has crossed paths with one of Diesel's cases. Stephanie is supposed to help with Annie Hart's cases in exchange for Diesel handing her over once his case is completed. It's up to Diesel and Stephanie to help people find love in time for Valentine's Day. Along the way, Stephanie has a run in with a mob boss, gets hives, and almost gets married. It's a very quick read and I thought it had some genuinely funny parts.
