Same ol' same ol' in Trenton. It's a nice short read for a dreary afternoon that will get some laughs while you wait for the next book. However, it's not one of my favorites in the series.

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.

A short, quick read. Stephanie goes to Atlantic City to save her grandma who's been kidnapped. Diesel is back to help her out. This is a cute read, but not nearly as fun, funny or enjoyable as the rest of the series. HOWEVER, it was nice not to have to wait till summer for a new installment.

A cute,quick read, but not nearly as captivating,or funny as the rest of the series. It does do it's job and keep Stephanie and her buddies on your mind while waiting for Fearless Fourteen. Evanovich is never a bad read so if you are a die-hard Plum fan, don't leave this one out.

Stephanie Plum does not disappoint. Being a between-the-numbers book, we have the return of Diesel and his special powers. Of course that means not much from Morelli or Ranger which is kind of a disappointment for me. I loved this one because Grandma Mazur is at the center of all the trouble, which is tends to lead to laugh-out-loud entertainment. If you're a fan of Stephanie and her gang, you'll like this incredibly fast, entertaining read!

The only disappointment with this book is that it wasn't longer! Diesel returns to the between the numbers book, and Grandma Mazur's back causing major headaches for Stephanie, teaming up again with Lula and Connie. Prior characters reappear in supporting or cameo roles. The book does its job - I can't wait for the next numbered installment.

Another in her series of between the numbers books that deals with good looking hunk "Diesel". Boyfriend Joe and another hunk Ranger are mentioned a couple of times, but no real love story. Grandma is up to her normal crazy self, along with Connie and Lula. Another car blown up and a kidnapping.

Love love love this book... okay so I love all of the Plum books. This was just as every bit of good as the rest of the series. Love Deisel. Plenty of laughs. There's a leporchon that runs around naked because he thinks it makes him invisible if he does this naked... I'd pay some good money to see this happen outside of my mind. If you don't read this book do me a favor and go shoot your foot. :)

Funny, extremely short read with a St. Patrick's day "theme" and Atlantic City setting. A midget, a horse, and some of the usual cast of characters.

I really wasn't impressed. I remember loving these books when I first got into the series a few years ago. Now, I do find the books (usually from the library) when they come out - but reading them just kind of leaves me empty.

This is your typical between the numbers Stephanie Plum novel. If your a fan of this series it has a few enjoyable moments at Lula's expense, but otherwise it's a mediocre Plum story.

I love this series. Stephanie is so funny and is so real. Granted some of the situations in these books are downright silly and unbelievable but that is what makes the series so damn entertaining. The between the numbers novels are sillier than most but still pack the same punch as the number series. This book was no exception. If you are a fan of this series than you will like this book.

This book was laugh-out-loud funny! It reminded me of the Keystone Cops I used to see on the old silent films. Everyone was running in all directions and bumping into each other in hilarious ways. I think this is the funniest book of the Stephanie Plum series. I had to stop reading several times because I was laughing out loud. It's not high-brow, but it sure made my day.

This is another 'Between the Numbers' books that features Stephanie Plum, Diesel, Lula, Grandma Mazur and the usual collection of off-beat characters that populate Evanovich's Stephanie Plum books. This one was so funny I didn't really miss Morelli or Ranger. Diesel is kind of growing on my too.

I don't want to give too much of the plot away. Let's just say that Grandma Mazur gets into a funny situation early on in the plot and it's up to Stephanie and Diesel to save the day. Lulu almost steals the book with some FUNNY scenes in an Atlantic City Casino. The scenes with Doug the horse were a riot.

A light, quick read. Stephanie has to save her Grandma in this one. Diesel is back and both Morelli and Ranger make small appearances. Not as in depth and fun as the regular number series, but a nice read to keep your taste buds going until the next one comes out.

This is a hilarious series of funny storied books. I read one book and then had to find them all.
Unfortunately Janet doesn't know how to turn on the heat for the romantic side of her stories... and how come Stephanie is never compensated for her losses, and is always just an out of luck victim?? Her new brother in law could be suing these guys for her.

I love the inbetween the numbers books. I especially look forward to finding out what Diesel is up to now. It's a nice break from the love issues of Stephanie, Morrelli, and Ranger. I love all of the Stephanie Plum books.

This is one of her better ones of the "between the numbers/Diesel" series. It features the whole gang, including Grandma and the lit'l guy we met in 6, off to Atlantic City where most of the action takes place.

I don't know if it's just me, but I really think that this series has been going downhill with the past few books. It just doesn't feel as funny as it did when I had read the first books with the Plum gang. The characters never change and you can pretty much guess how every book is going to end. I also don't know why the author bothers to have characters who work with law enforcement in this book because it seems like nobody knows how to obey the law. If this were any other series, the characters would've been arrested or in prison by now. I've had to learn to read it as a parody of actual mystery books because so many things are just so out there sometimes. I don't even laugh as much as I used to because the parts that are supposed to be funny just feel like they've been done before in this series. (I mean seriously, we already know Lula is an awful dresser--I don't need another fashion update every ten pages.)

Overall, the book is weak, but a fast read, and I'm glad all I spent on it was a credit.

This series has really gone downhill. I wanted to like Plum Lucky, but it was just kind of stupid. I know these books are light, fluffy reads anyway, but the series used to be fresh and funny. Anymore it is just lame and rehash. I think I am done with Stephanie Plum.

The Plum Books that are "in between" the number series are ok - the story lines seem to be a bit silly, whereas the number series books have a realistic plot.

The entire series based on bondswoman Stephanie Plum is very entertaining and this in between is no exception. Grandma Mazur is the wild grandma not found in real life very often, but that all of us would love just maybe not permanent. Diesel is another hunk to sweeten up the romance, which is in the background. I have read the entire series and have not been disappointed.

I think Janet Evanovich should give up on the Between the Numbers book. It is to keep her followers happy between the main books. If you are a die-hard Stephanie Plum fan then you will enjoy them. I find the between the numbers do not have any chemistry and focus on Stephanie. My sister is a big fan of the Plum series and enjoys the between the number books and I prefer to skip them. I like the series so much I wouldn't want to tell anyone not to read this book, but I would definately read one of the number books first.

Evanovich's Stephanie Plum is always a good, quick read. She seems to get herself into more trouble than one person should - this book is no different. Grandma Mazur, one of my favorite charachters in this series, is constantly amusing the readers with her antics - she's one feisty Granny. I normally read the more serious crime novels, but I read these for the fun value. I need a little light-hearted reading in between the blood and guts of the other hard-core criminal novelists. Thanks Evanovich.

This is the first of Janet Evanovich's books I've read and the combo of suspense & Laugh out loud moments was perfect.. Each character hilarious in their own way. I was glad that this book was just one of a series of many others (I decided to backtrack to the beginning and I am currently awaiting delivery of the first book in the series) You definitly have to read this book if you think it is impossible to roll together laugh out loud humor & shoot outs between bounty hunters & mobsters (as result of the kidnapping of a family member.......and an injured race horse!!!) This suspense/thriller is perfectly peppered with laugh out loud humor (believe me i read it in bed one night and i kept laughing (amost to tears over a few things) and my fiance kept asking "what is so funny" and when i ready him the line(s) i was laughing at from the book he even thought it was funny too!)

another stephanie plum book I tried to read and couldn't, I'm just not a fan of this character or this author, it was not interesting about her grandma that found a bag of money and went gambling, etc. or the little man in green pants or anything, it was so dumb that I just put it down and posted it here, maybe someone else likes this character.

It's been years since I read a book by this author. I had forgotten how humorous her novels were. Maybe I just viewed them as mysteries. Anyway, this is a read to tickle one's funny bone. It's an easy read, one you can finish in a few hours. This is the type of book you pick up for a change of pace, to lighten your day and to laugh at the antics of the characters. It's just plain fun.

Stephanie has to find Grandma Mazur. She has disappeared with a huge black bag early in the morning and none of her friends know where she is... The pamphlet next to her bed says Daffy's in Atlantic City. So Steph follows this hunch with Lula, Connie and Diesel has arrived, just in time to help. Here we go loop de loo, there we go loop de lie... Ranger and Morelli are off doing other things and this gang finds Grandma Mazur with Briggs at the casino with the black bag which has Mobster Delvina's money in it! So the Fab Five have an adventure with a Horse named Doug, a mobster named Delvina, and his henchman named Mickey.

I was disappointed in this book. I read 75 pages (half the book) and hadn't laughed once. The action and dialogue just seemed a re-hash of the previous books. There was nothing new here. I guess Evanovich's "between the numbers" books are not for me.
