Wicked Business

Title: Wicked Business

Author: Janet Evanovich

Publisher: Bantam Books

Series: Lizzy and Diesel aka Wicked, Bk 2

ISBN: 9780345527776

Pages: 299

Obtained: Library copy


Everyone is on the chase for another of the Stones of SALIGIA (seven deadly sin stones).  This time they've got a lead on lust (or possibly true love).  There is some fire and falling from buildings and kidnapping and whatnot.  And there's a trail of cryptic clues, fumbled spell casting, and Carl the monkey.

It took me a full week to read this book.  Perhaps I should make allowances for everything that was going on during that week.  But I think part of what took me so long is I just can't connect with Lizzy and Diesel the way I can with Stephanie Plum or even Alex Barnaby.  I've never been a big Diesel fan, and Lizzy doesn't have anything about her that especially draws me in.

Despite some amusing parts, I felt bored overall.  The story picked up some toward the end, but not enough to make a difference.   I think I'll be discontinuing this series.


  1. Speaking of Stephanie Plum, did you see the movie?

    1. Yes. And it wasn't very good. I like several of the actors in general, but the acting in the movie was not good. IMO.

      Did you see it?

    2. Not yet, but plan to. Our library has it and I'm on the waiting list.

    3. My library didn't get it because of the neg. reviews. I went to a movie rental place...

      I forgot your library lets you request movies and tv shows! That is so weird to me.


Please feel free to comment. I love to hear from you!
