Finger Lickin' Fifteen

Title: Finger Lickin' Fifteen (15th book in the Stephanie Plum series)

Author: Janet Evanovich

Pages: 308

Type: Mystery

Synopsis: Now that Stephanie Plum has sworn off men, she has lots of time on her hands. In need need of some extra money she accepts a desk job from Cuban hunk/bounty hunter extraordinaire, Ranger. This does not please her now off again boyfriend, Joe Morelli.

When ex 'ho' Lula witnesses a famous chef being decapitated she learns that the murderers are now after her. She enlists Stephanie's help to find the killers. Lula's idea to catch the killers? To sign up to compete in the Rib Cookoff being held in Trenton which the famous chef was supposed to be a big part of. The only problem? (well one of the many problems?) -- Lula cannot cook and when she gets Grandma Mazur on board as her sous-chef ... things start getting messy. Can Stephanie help catch the killers before they kill Lula? Can Stephanie keep her self-imposed 'anti-men' campaign while in Ranger's midst?

My Thoughts: I had several laugh out loud moments in this book but I wouldn't say that the mystery was the best mystery of the series. I would have loved more from Grandma Mazur -- I cannot believe there was no Grandma Mazur high jinx at the funeral parlour!! Although, Stephanie's dad's comments around the family dining table are hilarious.

My Rating: 3.5/5 (a good read)
