Plum Spooky by Janet Evanovich

#18 Stephanie Plum (one of the "between" novels)
Genre: mystery
Pages: audio
Challenges: Stephanie Plum Challenge, audio book challenge
Author's Website
My rating: 4/5

Simple Description:
This is another of the "between" novels that features Diesel.   Stephanie and Diesel partner up to find Munch, an incredibly smart guy who recently stole some kind of machine from the company he was working at.  Stephanie isn't sure exactly what this machine does, but it must be something special since he stole it.  Diesel is searching for Wolf, a guy he's been hunting for awhile and who is currently helping Munch.  

Things are crazier than usual because the search takes them to a part of Jersey that has the easter bunny, big foot, and a lot of monkeys.  Speaking of monkeys, Stephanie is also watching Carl.  Carl is a monkey we were introduced to in one of the other novels.  Carl likes to give everyone the finger. He also rescue's Stephanie a couple of times.

Now what you really want to know....my thoughts:
I actually really enjoyed this one.  In the past I thought the between novels were ok, but not as good as the regular novels.  This one was a ton of fun though.  I loved how Carl was part of this one, what a fun character (even if he is a monkey).   I can't help but love the relationship between Stephanie and all the macho guys, really, I just can't help it.

I definitely think the audio versions are what has me loving this series again.  I'm so glad that I decided to give this series another chance.  I'm not sure if I'll ever go back to physically reading this series, audio's are the way to go for me.

This audio book was rented from my local library.

I had started with the between the numbers novels on audio and really loved how fun they are...I've read the numbers novels in book form, and enjoyed them, but for some reason these between the numbers are so outrageously funny to me. I really loved this one in particular.

I tried one of the early between the numbers books and didn't really care for it. Sounds like I need to give them another try.

It's funny that both of you (Serena and Berumdaonion) have different comments regarding the in between books. haha! I have to admit that I didn't really care of the in between novels but found this one a lot of fun and it's my favorite of the in between books so far. I actually got to where I wasn't liking the normal books as much either, but switching to audio changed that for me. For some reason...listening to these books is a lot of fun for me and definitely has me interested in the series again. I've actually requested #16 from the library already, the wait is over 100 people. lol! I'm sure I'll have time to fit in #15 before I'm even close to getting #16.
