Do you have to read these in order?  I just requested Plum Lovin not realizing it was part of her series.........should I hold it until I'm further into the series (I also just requested One for the Money).............

It's not absolutely necessary to read them in order, but the same  main characters appear in each book, and knowing the progress of the various relationships is a plus.  I can't read them one right after the other b/c they're so similar, but I pick up the next one a couple of months after finishing the previous. Some parts areLOL funny.

I'd think you'd enjoy the series more if you read them in order, simply because of the minor storylines that carry on through each book.

I agree that you would probably like them better if you read them in order. Plus sometimes they leave you hanging at the end and then the next one picks up were the previous one left off. They are great books though I love them!!

I read my first one:  out of order, oh well.  I read Plum Loving'.   I do have the FIRST one so I can start them in order.........might be one to save for our "honeymoon" in October.........long plane ride.........I have paperbacks set aside, because they pack lighter..........

I'n not really sure............I went to a website which one??  Dont remember, and got a list of her books.........thought it was added in as an "extra" but then someone else said in these forums what number it was..........I've already sent it off to another PBSer..........so can't look to see if it says on the book.....

Plum Lovin' is between 12 and 13. Evanovich's website, www.evanovich.com is a good resource for Plum info :-)

I LOVE LOVE LOVE these books!!! lol 

Dont forget about Visions of Sugar Plums too!!!!  Thats toward the end there too some where? And there are a few things in each book that you kinda want to know before going to the next  #d book.

I just started reading her "FULL" series. Not quiet as good, but still a great read and the same type of story funnies.
