BOTTOM-LINE:
Love the Moonman, hate the wedding talk
.
PLOT OR PREMISE:
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.
.
DISCLOSURE:
I received no compensation, not even a free copy, in exchange for this review. I am not personal friends with the author, nor do I follow her on social media.

Great read and loads of fun as usual Stephanie Plum is up to ears in disaster. I don't normally enjoy mystery or crime novels but these make me laugh out loud!!

I KNEW SOMETHING bad was going to happen when
Vinnie called me into his private office. Vinnie is my boss
and my cousin. I read on a bathroom stall door once that
Vinnie humps like a ferret. I’m not sure what that means,
but it seems reasonable since Vinnie looks like a ferret. His
ruby pinky ring reminded me of treasures found in Seaside
Park arcade claw-machines. He was wearing a black shirt
and black tie, his receding black hair was slicked back, casino pit boss–style. His facial expression was tuned to not
happy
