I started this book about 5 hours ago. It’s a real quick read. It’s called a Stephanie Plum Between-the-Numbers novel. Generally, it’s, “One for the Money” and “Two for the Dough”, “Three to get Deadly” all the way up to “Lean Means Thirteen”. So, this one isn’t numbered in the title, it’s just a real quick story, “Plum Lucky”.
Grandma Mazur starts it all off on Saint Patrick’s Day by sighting a rainbow. She closes her eyes, makes a wish and opens them to find a duffle bag of money at her feet. She starts lugging off the money and the guy who’d originally stolen it comes looking for it. See, when he was making his get-away he put it on the roof of his car and sped off. It rolled off at Grandma Mazur’s feet when he turned a corner.
There’s a lot of rushing around, back and forth as the bad guys want their money back and end up kidnapping Grandma Mazur and holding her for ransom. Lots of car chasing, gun fights and cars blowing up. There’s even a rocket launcher towards the end.
I can’t tell you any more about this story. You’ve got to read it. I was going to type out an excerpt, except it was pretty raunchy and the guides told me I’d better not. So, since I’m paying more attention to them lately, I decided not to. You’ll just have to get a copy of the book. Or, actually, just get anything by Janet Evanovich. You won’t be disappointed.
