Plot or Premise

Cover: Seven Up by Janet Evanovich

Seven Up 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.
