Look Alive Twenty-Five Review...

Stephanie Plum faces the toughest puzzle of her career in the twenty-fifth entry in Janet Evanovich's #1 New York Times bestselling series.

There's nothing like a good deli and the Red River Deli in Trenton is one of the best. World famous for its pastrami, cole slaw and for its disappearing managers. Over the last month, three have vanished from the face of the earth, 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.



OMG thank you Stephanie Plum (and Janet Evanovich) for finally getting me out of my almost 3 month long reading slump!

Stephanie never disappoints!  In this book she ends up the manager of a deli where the managers keep disappearing.  She has to fit her bounty hunting in around working the deli.  She is also under constant surveillance by Morelli, Ranger and the ever mysterious Wulf so that she doesn't disappear too.  In the end she gets all the FTA's as well as finding all the missing managers.  Don't forget to throw in the chaos of Stephanie's family (Grandma Mazur was surprisingly tame in this book), Lula, crazy FTA's, the Rangeman crew and the deli staff.

This was an amazing book.  It was kind of odd not to see more craziness from Grandma Mazur.  However, I feel like Lula stepped up her game in this book, she took over Grandma's crazy.  Even Hal had a few comedic moments.  The plot was awesome and there were a few twists and turns I didn't see coming.  The characters as always were really well written.

I can't believe I have to wait a year for the next Stephanie Plum book.  I have to know what comes of Grandma Mazur's crazy moment.  But again thank you Janet for getting me back into the reading groove.

5 sandwiched stars!!!!
