Wicked Business

Every once in awhile I like to read fluff.  Hence, my Stephanie Plum obsession.  While I was at the library awhile ago I saw that Janet Evanovich had a new series, Lizzie & Diesel.  So, being the series obsessed that I am, I had to give it a whirl.

Description: When Harvard University English professor and dyed-in-the-wool romantic Gilbert Reedy is mysteriously murdered and thrown off his fourth-floor balcony, Lizzy and Diesel take up his twenty-year quest for the Luxuria Stone, an ancient relic believed by some to be infused with the power of lust. Following clues contained in a cryptic nineteenth-century book of sonnets, Lizzy and Diesel tear through Boston catacombs, government buildings, and multimillion-dollar residences, leaving a trail of robbed graves, public disturbances, and spontaneous seduction.

First off, this is the SECOND book in the series and I didn't realize that until I had already started it and decided, ehhh..

That being said, if you are looking for a laugh out loud ridiculous reading experience this is your book.  I can totally see similarities between these characters and her Stephanie Plum characters and they all crack me up. 

There is innocent Glo who is determined she is a wizard and that her broom has magical powers.  Hatchett who wanders around dressed like a Renaissance man speaking like that and being ridiculous.  Diesel who is hot and flirts.  Lizzie who bakes cupcakes and cooks and does ridiculous things.  It's just perfect for fluff.

It's not something I NEED to read but if I need a quicky mindless book, I will totally read another.

I'd recommend this for those who are fans of Janet's and maybe like a little magic in there stories.

What's your favorite fluff reading?
