My Review of Wicked Appetite by Janet Evanovich

Wicked

If you have an open afternoon or a couple of free evenings, pick up this book and get ready for light entertainment. Janet Evanovich has a formula in her Stephanie Plum series and she sticks to it in this one. The characters and the humor make this a must-read, and the story leans toward fantasy if that’s your thing. If it’s not, the first two things I mentioned will more than make up for it.

Elizabeth Tucker (Lizzy) finds herself in a historic home she inherited from her Great Aunt Ophelia in Salem, Massachusetts, working as a pastry chef at Dazzle’s Bakery. Her simple life is about to become more complicated. Enter Gerwulf Grimoire (Wulf) and his cousin, Diesel. One wants to hurt her, the other is sent to protect her. Lizzy, you see, is an Unmentionable (not the underwear kind) and is able to identify magic objects, specifically the stones of SALIGIA

Armed with a one-eyed cat named Cat #7143 and a monkey named Carl, Lizzy and Diesel work together to locate three charms associated with one of the SALIGIA stones while dodging Wulf and picking up after Glo’s messes, a friend of Lizzy’s who may or may not be magical. Throw in a ghost hunting group who hang around getting in the way, a historic haunted homes guide, and Lizzy’s father who visits while in town for a convention and stays overnight and you have a fast-paced, hilarious (sometimes knee slapping good) book that I say READ!
