I think this was the craziest book I've ever read. We have an evil hottie, a good hottie, a fabulous cupcake baker, a wanna-be witch (and salesclerk), a one-eyed cat, a loony medieval guy and a crazy monkey. Oh and let's not forget the sin of gluttony.

There is a set of seven stones that represent the 7 sins and corrupt whomever holds them. The mystery is finding the first stone - the gluttony stone. The funny part is when Lizzy gets her hands on it and she can't stop eating or thinking of eating. This was hilarious and laugh out loud funny. I can't wait until the series gets to the sin of lust. Lizzy has it bad for the good hottie, Diesel. So far she's held off jumping him but given the way she reacted to the stone of gluttony, that won't last long if she gets her hands on it.

I really liked Diesel even though he is a serious alpha male and has to be in charge of everything. He likes Lizzy too and his reaction when she's eating everything in sight is priceless and he is so patient with her. Kinda seems out of character for this badass but it definitely works for him.

Had a lot of recycled motifs from the Stephanie Plum and other Janet Evanovich books - kooky secondary characters, off-scene deaths, fires, crazy animals, smelly accidents, gluttony, sexual tension, sexy cars, snappy comebacks, mild mystery plot. Felt like reading a Stephanie Plum book, but without the guns/police and instead with a supernatural authorities theme. I'd have rather had another installment of the Plum series, this was just so-so. I started skimming to get past some of the antics, wanted to finish it off, not sure if I will read the next book in the series.

Did not like this latest book. Couldn't find a plot or story line--it was nonsensical and the story focused way too much on the monkey. I love Janet Evanovich and the Stephanie Plum series, but Wicked Appetite was a total waste for me.

Funny and interesting. Repetitive. I'd consider it youth-oriented, FAST read for me; too easy. But good topic and funny parts to it (maybe I'm just a teenager at heart?)

If you enjoy Stephanie Plum and Alexandra Barnaby (Janet Evanovich's other heroines) you'll like Lizzie too. The author somehow manages to write in a manner that is light-hearted while being intelligent. I'm not a fan of the supernatural genre, but the author handles it in a way that is enjoyable (not dark). This is a book that is hard to put down because it's such a fun read!

I hated this book and was mad at myself for wasting time reading it. I love the Stephanie Plum books, although they are becoming a bit trite too, but his was too silly. I didn't care about the characters, didn't understand if there was a message in the 7 sins, and kept wondering what is the point of this book? I don't think there was one.

Lizzy is not equal to Stephanie Plum in pure laugh-out-loud humor, but still a quick sometimes amusing read. Throw together the usual mix of zany characters, a convoluted plot, and titillating sexual tension, and there you have. I've Wish Listed the second installment, so I guess I'm sucked in once again.
