My Review of Wicked Business, Book 2 in the Lizzy and Diesel Series, by Janet Evanovich

I did a little light reading recently and I’m going to be blunt here; I laughed my ass off several times while reading this book. There, I said it. Janet Evanovich is a funny lady that can get me to laugh with some witty writing and carefully placed details.

She brings into her stories believable characters and odd sidekicks such as the monkey, Carl, and the cat, Cat 7148. Here is a statement at the beginning of the book:

“My name is Lizzy Tucker, and I used to think I was normal. My hair is blonde with some chemical assistance. My eyes are brown from my Grandpa Harry. I’m 5’5” tall, and my breasts measure more than my waist so I’m a happy camper … I felt like my life was finally coming together. And then two men and a monkey dropped into my world and changed it forever.”

Lizzy must help the mysterious Diesel in his pursuit of seven ancient stones related to the seven deadly sins. Called the Stones of SALIGIA, if they are combined the person who holds tLayout 1hem has great power and can make life on earth Hell. If you can set aside disbelief of the odd premise that Lizzy can sense magical items, and that Glo’s broom is magical but won’t fly because of a bad attitude, or that Cat #7148 is ancient and slightly mystical, or that … If you can put aside your disbelief in the supernatural and all these things, you are left with the funny adventures of a slightly clumsy pastry chef in Salem, Massachusetts.

This is the second in the series and if you want something light and enjoyable, Wicked Business continues from where Wicked Appetite left off and is a fast-paced, action-packed hunt and chase around Boston.
