I didn't know until recently that Evanovich wrote a "between the numbers" Stephanie Plum book. I understand there's another one coming, as well. This is a minor bit, but fun. It's quite short--just a novella, really--and is padded in the back with excerpts from the numbered books to make it thick enough to sell as a book.

In this story, a hunk named Diesel pops into her kitchen one morning and won't leave. He's mildly irritating and doesn't really tell her what his special talents are--other than demonstrating that he can open any lock any time by just thinking it open.

Stephanie tolerates his riding along as she works to find Sandy Claws--yes, that's his name, and he comes with a white beard, a toy factory, and elves--who has failed to appear and thus skipped bail.

There are supernatural elements to the story that make it a fantasy as well as a mystery, so stay away if that sort of thing irritates you. It is, of course, as much silly fun as the rest of Evanovich's books, so any Stephanie Plum fan who can tolerate a bit of the fantastic should get this right away.

Seriously not her best work. I love the rest of the series, but this one was... sort of lame. It felt like she got talked into doing something christmasy by the publisher and her heart wasn't in it. It was mildly entertaining, but I was completely sorry I paid full price for it.

For Stephanie followers--it feeds the passion. However, this does not compare to the full books. It is a pleasant, Christmas fantasy with most of the favorite characters (Ranger is absent).

Just another book I sank my teeth into, hehe. Diesel is introduced in this book and just let me say that is the best thing next to a puddin pop. Very funny, as always with the plum series. Read it. Love it. ;)

My first "in between" book. As always it was a good laugh. So far I am liking Deisel. He sounds like a hunk!
