Publisher's Summary

A thrilling and fast-paced mystery in the much-loved Stephanie Plum series from number one New York Times best-selling author Janet Evanovich. 

There's nothing like a good deli, and the Red River Deli in Trenton is one of the best. World-famous for its pastrami, its coleslaw and its disappearing managers. Over the last month, three have vanished from the face of the earth, and the only clue in each case is one shoe that's been left behind. The police are baffled. Lula is convinced that it's a case of alien abduction. Whatever it is, they'd better figure out what's going on before they lose their new manager, Ms Stephanie Plum.  

Celebrate Stephanie Plum's silver anniversary as she faces the toughest puzzle of her career in the 25th entry in Janet Evanovich's number one New York Times best-selling series.

Yay she’s back on form!

Hooray Janet Evanovich is back to her best with this Stephanie Plum romp. This is a great joy to me as Stephanie Plum is comfort food for me when I need a pick me up light read. I revisit them regularly, like some people do with reruns of ‘Friends’.

In number 25, the storyline is much better than in the previous book which disappointed me. I felt quite worried that this one would be as bad but no! It was a good, fun story that actually made sense. No irritating Diesel, although the weird Wolf makes a cameo. A lot of the usual characters make an appearance although Grandma Mazur isn’t as prominent as in previous books. Ranger and Morelli are they as are Tank and Hal. There are some surprising omissions in the storyline: Stephanie’s car doesn’t blow up, there is no mention of the Buick, Big Blue and neither Mooner nor Randy make an appearance. Despite this change and perhaps because of it, this is a good Stephanie Plum book. It hits all the right spots in the Plum formula. Lots of slap stick humour and getting into a mess for Stephanie and her sidekick Lula. It’s a hoot, I actually laughed out loud and it tackles the stupid obsession we have in the 21st century with reality tv. Yay! She’s back on form!

As I listened to this via the audible app. I also need to say something about the performance. Lorelie King does a cracking job as usual. Her voice is Stephanie’s as far as I’m concerned. (Whenever I read the books it’s her voice I hear)And the way she voices Lula and Ranger always makes me smile. Who know there were so many different ways to say, “huh” and “babe”

All in all, happy days.

Very silly, but good fun

This is a 'nice' listen in between heavier novels, I had read the Stephanie Plum novels for years, they are as daft as they come, but somehow, I like Stephanie, and Lula and all the other characters.
The plot is silly and funny. This was generally a worthy use of a credit
