My last summer treat was to swallow Stephanie Plum's latest adventure in one gulp. Plum Lovin', a "between the novels novel", was Stephanie at her finest. Nothing exploded, unfortunately, and both Morelli and Ranger made only brief appearances, but it was still a top Stephanie adventure. There was also a fairly major plot advancement that will need to be accounted for in future books.
I've read fifteen...sixteen?...Stephanie Plum books and each one reminds me of why I love Evanovich's books and the character of Plum.
