Description

Looking to get lucky?

Stephanie Plum is back between-the-numbers and she's looking to get lucky in an Atlantic City hotel room, in a Winnebago, and with a brown-eyed stud who has stolen her heart.

Stephanie Plum has a way of attracting danger, lunatics, oddballs, bad luck...and mystery men. And no one is more mysterious than the unmentionable Diesel. He's back and hot on the trail of a little man in green pants who's lost a giant bag of money. Problem is, the money isn't exactly lost. Stephanie's Grandma Mazur has found it, and like any good Jersey senior citizen, she's hightailed it in a Winnebago to Atlantic City and hit the slots. With Lula and Connie in tow, Stephanie attempts to bring Grandma home, but the luck of the Irish is rubbing off on everyone: Lula's found a job modeling plus-size lingerie. Connie's found a guy. Diesel's found Stephanie. And Stephanie has found herself in over her head with a caper involving thrice-stolen money, a racehorse, a car chase, and a bad case of hives.

Plum Lucky is an all-you-can-eat buffet of thrills, chills, shrimp cocktail, plus-size underwear, and scorching hot men. It's a between-the-numbers treat no Evanovich fan will want to miss!

    Grandma Mazur finds a duffel bag full of money, takes off for a casino in Atlantic City, and chaos ensues when Stephanie, Lula and Connie are tasked with bringing her back.

    Fast, easy & funny......

    Same characters, same writing/plot formula except enter Diesel.....

    St. Patrick's day, Grandma Masur finds a huge duffel bag of money... Steph & Lula see her on the street fighting w/ what looks to be a Leprechaun over the money. They save Grandma...and off she goes. Grandma buys an R.V. fitted out for "little people", gets a driver and off she goes to Atlantic City.

    The Leprechaun who wants the money back, stole it from the Mob Boss in the previous book, in order to help get one of the racehorses he once rode (which he has stolen) to the vet.....

    Diesel & Connie are in the mix as well.... Joe & Ranger only check-in....

    I read it in a few hours....

    Another crazy and fun Stephanie adventure!
  • (3/5)
    This is one of the "between-the-numbers" books in Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series. These are part of the series' continuity (to the extent that that actually matters), but are distinct from the regular series installments in that they're shorter, are set around a holiday (in this case, St. Patrick's Day), involve some supernatural elements, and feature a character with the ridiculous name of Diesel, who I believe is a crossover character from a different Evanovich series.The other thing they usually have in common is that I find them annoying. The supernatural stuff feels badly out of place to me, the plots are usually dumb in a bad way (as opposed to the silly, fun sort of way one hopes for from this series), and Diesel is hideously skeevy even by Evanovich standards.So I was happy to discover that this one actually didn't annoy me. I still don't like Diesel, but I found myself at least able to tolerate him. And the main guest character, a guy with a less-useful-than-it-sounds gift of supernatural luck who believes he's a leprechaun, is actually surprisingly fun. Mind you, the end result is ridiculous, forgettable, mildly amusing fluff, but that's pretty much what I'm looking for from this series. I don't think it's quite as good at being mildly amusing fluff as some of the regular installments, but I'm just relieved that it mostly worked for me.

    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'm not a fan of Diesel and don't particularly enjoy the books with him in it. However, Grandma Mazur was the focus of this episode in the between the numbers series, and I love her! I did enjoy Connie playing a larger role in this book. And the man who thought he was a leprechaun was a fun side distraction. Overall, a fun and quick read.
  • (3/5)
    Not terrible.I don't see the point to the "between the numbers" books and Diesel. It's not like the other books are so heavy and serious that we need a break of lighter material. This one was not that much different than the regular books.
  • (2/5)
    This was okay, nothing to write home about. Everything just seemed a bit over-the-top and it really didn't keep my attention. I probably wouldn't recommend this book to people reading this series.

    I know I need to read more of the Stephanie Plum novels. I really enjoyed this book. I found myself laughing at the dialog between Lula, Connie, Diesel and Stephanie. Plum Lucky takes place around St. Patty's day. Stephanie's grandmother goes missing after she finds a duffelbag filled with money. Stephanie's mother is worried and sends her daughter out to find her. She finds her in Atlantic City and that is when the fun begins. Stephanie, Lula, Diesel and Connie work together to rescue grandmom after she is kidnapped in Atlantic City. This is a fast pace story and easily read in a day.

    I always have more fun reading the in-between books. It's been a while since I've read this one but I clearly remember a naked guy who thought he was an invisible leprechaun. It must look like a funhouse inside of Evanovich's brain. Laugh out loud funny.

    Plum Lucky, a Stephani Plum novel, is ready to be enjoyed by author Stephanie Evanovich fans. Grandma Mayer has found a green bag of money and is off to Atlantic City to the slots. Escapades happen, a racehorse, car chase and a bad case of hives. This novel is all you can read buffet of thrills, chills plus size underwear (don't ask) and scorching hot men.I recommend this fun novel to all new and not so new Evanovich fans.

    The holiday ones get weird, and this one definitely did that. It was a fun roller coaster ride, though.
  • (4/5)
    First I wasn't so excited. I rather thought that will be a bored reading and therefore I was a bit disappointed because usually I like this serie. From the middle away I was disabused because the story turned for the better and I had to snort with laughter what crazy stuff Stephanie and her takers were doing. Only the thought of getting a horse into a lift and what can happen made me giggle. In the end I have to admit that it was a very funny story.
  • (4/5)
    This is one of the "between-the-number" books. Evanovich titles her Stephanie Plum books in sequence with a number as part of the title. This isn't one of those, but it is a Stephanie Plum story with a lot going on.Stephanie's Grandma Mazur has gone missing and Stephanie's mom wants her found. Makes sense that Stephanie should be the one to go looking for her since that is what Stephanie does for a living.Last seen, Grandma Mazur had a large duffle bag filled with money. Just like the majority of seniors with extra cash, Mazur has gone to Atlantic City to hit the slots.There is a slight problem with this scenario...the money is stolen from Lou Delvina, a local mobster. It seems a little lebrechaun of a guy, wearing green pants, named "Snuggy" stole it to pay for an operation for Doug. Doug is a retired race horse that Snuggy stole. Grandma Mazur happened to find the duffle bag on the street when Snuggy dropped it.Helping Stephanie find and retrieve her grandma is Diesel, a guy with some mysterious talents, and her work cohort, Lula. They make an interesting team, to say the least.The cast is not your usual type of characters and the action gets quite wild and crazy. Guess you could call this a screw-ball sleuthing adventure. Just what I expect when I sit down with Stephanie Plum.

    Very quick read involving a leprechaun, a horse and a man toad. Stephanie's cohorts are always a giggle. ?
  • (1/5)
    This book was so mindless I quit after about 30 pages.
  • (4/5)
    These between the numbers are pretty clearly fluff to fill time between the already pretty fluffy regular series, but I enjoy them all the same. Loved Doug the horse.
  • (2/5)
    This was just okay. I always find that the books the In-Between-the-Numbers series don’t have the same shine or amount of funniness as the regular books do despite having hunky Diesel in them. This was funny, but not enough to warrant an extra star even with the horsey hijinks.
  • (2/5)
    Kind of kooky, but cute as read by the reader. Mystery of kidnapping and stolen money, horse, and grandma.
  • (4/5)
    Not my favourite Stephanie Plum, but enjoyable nonetheless. Grandma Mazur goes AWOL to a casino with someone else's money, add to that the usual chaos of the life of Stephanie, Lula revealing all, a horse in Stephanie's lounge and the usual episode of firebombing cars, and welcome to the world of Stephenie Plum!
  • (3/5)
    When Stephanie sees her grandmother Mazur arguing with a guy about a bag, she really doesn't think much about it, until her mother tells her that her grandmother is missing. Stephanie goes about finding her with the help of Diesel and Lula and finds herself embroiled in a mess that involves a horse and kidnapping.It's fun, what you would expect from the series, a little shorter than most but entertaining.
  • (4/5)
    So far, Plum Lucky is my favorite of the Between the Numbers novellas. It was funny and cute. It definitely made me laugh out loud a few times. I love the looks people give me when that happens. :)
  • (3/5)
    The third book in the 'between the books' series and sixteenth overall in the Stephanie Plum series, Plum Lucky doesn't break new ground in giving fans of the series the familiar comfortable hijinks of Stephanie Plum, bounty hunter.
  • (3/5)
    I love any book that features Diesel. He is too hot to handle in this book. Grandma Mazur finds stolen money, buys and RV and goes to Atlantic City to gamble. Stephanie gets involved when her mom sends her to bring Grandma home. It's a wild ride and really enjoyable. It is a quick read and definitely worth it.
  • (3/5)
    Grandma Mazur finds money, buys an rv modified for little people, and takes it and a driver to Atlantic City. Diesel appears again - 3rd time, and the bad guy does seem to have turned into a toad
  • (3/5)
    A new book on Stephanie. You'd think I'd be ecstatic, and having read it in 3 hours, I suppose I was gung-ho for the whole experience, and yet.... I know I've mentioned before that I don't particulairly like her "between the numbers" Plum reads, but they're reads I devour em like all the rest. The characters become more than fun lovingly outlandish, they're straight up comic book characters, and they don't really explore the relationships I love in her regularly numbered books, so thats another down side. There was one nude scene in the book that had me laughing for about 10 minutes based on the description itself, so that hiked up the stars for me, and I'll continue to read whatever is put out by Evanovich, its just reading these kinds of books makes me feel as if the bloom has just worn off, and I must mourn it.
  • (4/5)
    A funny and wacky between-the-numbers novel. When Diesel comes back into Stephanie's life with his strange and almost magical talents, her life is flipped upside down and this time Grandma Mazur is involved and forces Stephanie to go to Atlantic City and rescue her.
  • (3/5)
    A criminal, a leprechaun, a tiny man, three gorgeous men, a whacked out grandmother, easy trigger fingers, and a few car explosions all in order to save a former race horse. Typical day in the life of Stephanie Plum. And an amusing read for me.
  • (4/5)
    Normally I don't care much about the Between-the-Numbers Plum books, as I don't find the stories quite as fulfilling or entertaining as the regular books in this series. This is the first one that I have to say I really enjoyed. The gang was at their finest, and even Diesel grew on me this time around. There were several 'laugh out loud' moments, as well as plenty of action and blown-up cars. Much better than I expected.
