By Janet Evanovich
Same old, same old. Nineteen books and the character of Stephanie Plum has not evolved at all. Same dilemmas, same stupid love triangle. I always wonder how much time has past in Stephanie’s world. There has been very little progression in her life. Unfortunately the once likable characters have pretty much become caricatures of themselves. Evanovich is just copying and pasting old stuff and changing the names. What was once light, fun beach reading is now a sad rerun. But, I’ll keep buying them for $5 from the bargain bin and passing the hours with a new Stephanie adventure. There’s something that keeps me trucking, but I really don’t know what it is.
