I really don’t know where to begin this one. I enjoy these novels for so many different reasons. It is hard for me to narrow down a specific piece or element of Janet Evanovich’s work with the Stephanie Plum series that I can start with as my number one. So I am going to be bold and different today and just list the top 16 reasons why I, Giovanni Gelati of Gelati’s Scoops, don’t just enjoy, but love Sizzling Sixteen and Janet Evanovich’s style: ( without including spoilers)
Number 16: The ending, I thought it was the most complete one yet.
Number15: I can safely say that this is a great summer read for the beach or at poolside
Number14: Mooner, Mooner, Mooner- need I say more dude or dudette.
Number13: I can actually share this novel with almost all my daughters (all except my 11 year old)
Number 12: When I read her novels and laugh out loud my wife doesn’t look at me funny; she actually understands.
Number 11: When I get one of her novels, I am all of a sudden my daughters’ favorite dad and receive much more attention than usual.
Number 10: The place of my birth, Saint Francis Hospital gets another mention for their great care and ability in the area of knife and gunshot wounds. I again feel proud of my birthplace.
Number 9: LuLu’s fashion statements, gotta luv ‘em. I have spoken up and suggested Queen Latifa to play her in the movie, what do you think?
Number 8: I love the mention of the different streets in the Burg as most of my Italian relatives lived in the area and it brings back many memories.
Number 7: I live in Bucks County and can identify with all the locations she mentions. What ever happened to Italian Peoples Bakery though?
Number 6: You gotta love characters that are loose cannons and also carry them. Chicks with Uzi’s , fire, stun guns, leopard pattern spandex, mayhem and disaster. Basically everything a guy looks for in the girl you want to take home to Mom & Dad.
Number 5: Grandma Mazur, everybody should have one of these, at least every funeral home. Pass the cookies please.
Number 4: Morelli/Ranger, Morelli/ Ranger, Morelli / Ranger, you decide. Would the novels be the same without this dynamic. I liken it to the best years of Moonlighting. Do you really want her to settle down?
Number 3: The diets LuLu tries in each novel, they are well, novel. Maybe Biggest Loser can use a product placement.
Number 2: One must certainly enjoy a novel where your main character has cars blow up and burn, buildings burn, her best buddy gets her Glock out of her Coach purse and shoots at anything and everything, borrows cars and those she borrows cars from don’t expect them back in one piece, the police asks her boyfriend cop if it is the mayhem at hand is work of his girlfriend again, constantly gets things stuck in her Jersey girl hair, and it seems in each novel, she must chase someone with erectile dysfunction.
Number 1: I have OCD and I have read everything she has written, how can I stop now?
