There is nothing that I can say about Finger Lickin’ Fifteen that I’ve not already said about the previous Stephenie Plum novels. They are all very formulaic in that:
Stephanie Plum is assigned various skips / FTAs that although she finds quite quickly, fails to apprehend the first time.
At least one car suffers a death. Actually, Finger Lickin’ Fifteen had quite a glut. I think this was an attempt for previous books where none had come to an end.
Lula, Grandma Mazur and sometimes Connie try to help out in their own way.
Stephanie is usually torn between Joe Morelli or Ranger. This time it’s Ranger whilst Joe gets a break.
But here’s the thing. Whilst they may follow a set pattern from book to book it’s not how the book resolves that’s important but rather the hi-jinks that ensue whilst Stephanie tries to get her man.
Also, as is usual, whilst there is some talk of what happened in previous books a new reader could easily jump in the series and pick up as each novel is very self contained.
Overall, a light and entertaining read and I shall continue with the series.
