Seven Up by Janet Evanovich (final thoughts)

January 17, 2010

Bounty Hunter extraordinaire Stephanie Plum has got a new assignment: to bring in an 80-something-year old FTA. Should be easy, right? Not when this 80-something-year old is Eddie DeChooch, a semi-retired mobster who’s doing all he can to prove he’s not a has-been. Plus, lovable stoners Mooner and Dougie somehow got themselves mixed-up in DeChooch’s business and have disappeared.

Seven Up is full of your usual Stephanie-needs-to-get-someone-and-it’s-actually-not-so-easy fare. All the old characters are back: Grandma Mazure and Lula, and of course Morelli and Ranger. Mooner and Dougie, who were introduced in the previous book, are also back for some more adventures. The only new characters of note are the perfect older sister Stephanie’s always compared to, Valerie, and her two girls.

While I didn’t enjoy Seven Up quite as much as I did Hot Six, it’s always fun to hang out with Stephanie and the gang.

My rating: 7.25/10

    Ah, Dougie and Mooner are two of my favorite characters – especially on the audiobooks!

    Stephanie is always good for a laugh or two :)

    I’ve only read Finger Licken’ Fifteen. It was nice fluff.

    You are further ahead than I am in the series. I am on Three to Get Deadly and hoping to get it finished in the next day or two. Glad to hear the series stays fun and not boring as the books go on.

    i’ve read all of these–i’m a jersey girl, what can i say?–and they go up and down. some are funnier than others and i prefer when ranger is center stage. lol.

    I enjoyed the first 7-8 books, then the jokes start to get a bit tired…I think it’s time to insert some new characters/kill the series
