Seven Up (published by St. Martin’s Press, 2010, ISBN: B0017POSDC, series: Plum (7)) is the seventh outing in the Stephanie Plum, bounty hunter, series. This time she’s after an old mobster who kills people and is dating her grandmother.
WHAT I LIKED
As with many of the Plum stories, it is often the secondary characters that add spice and liveliness to the story. DeChooch, the old and inept mobster, is a hoot and we get to see a lot more interactions with Moonman. There are so many cute scenes — like when she finds a bunch of stolen merchandise in a bedroom, asks for an explanation, and ends up buying a toaster. Oh and there’s a little thing about planning a wedding.
WHAT I DIDN’T LIKE
The basic premise of why everyone is looking for DeChooch is a bit far-fetched, but whatever. In addition, the arrival of sister Valerie with two kids in tow adds little to the story. And don’t get me started on the kidnapping of Grandma.
Legend: 1/5 Finished 2/5 Not bad 3/5 Good 4/5 Enjoyable 5/5 Excellent
THE BOTTOM LINE
Love the Moonman, hate the wedding talk.
