Review Text

Stephanie Plum is back - the very definition of feisty, with her family, the very embodiment of dysfunctional, in her wake. Evanovich's popular mix of heart-of-gold bounty hunter - with her hamster, her confusing love life, nurturing mother, wilfully eccentric grandmother and grumbling father - has found increasing success over eight full novels so far and now returns in a pleasing Christmas confection of a novella. Visited by a mysterious - if very good-looking - man by the name of Diesel, Stephanie is trying to reel in a bail absconder by the name of Sandy Claus while hoping against hope that she'll get in the festive spirit - but unfortunately the two won't go, and even her shopping remains undone. Attacked by midgets, plagued by electrical blackouts, and with a sister made pregnant by a dough ball of an ambulance chaser of a lawyer, she finds that things just refuse to go smoothly. And all the time she is flanked by Diesel, the very odd stranger with apparently supernatural powers, who may be an alien, Superman or just the ghost of Christmas present. Evanovich's familiar style will be as reassuring to her many fans as the kitchen smell of cookies she so effortlessly evokes. Stephanie's many plucky failures and few flukey successes are as reliable but as beautifully delivered as ever and the smartly drawn background cast draws the reader in from the first page. An easy way with wisecracks and dazzlingly speedy plots make Evanovich's comic thrillers just about the most fun you can have in crime fiction. (Kirkus UK)show more
