Looking to get lucky?
Stephanie Plum is back between-the-numbers and she's looking to get lucky in an Atlantic City hotel room, in a Winnebago, and with a brown-eyed stud who has stolen her heart.
Stephanie Plum has a way of attracting danger, lunatics, oddballs, bad luck . . . and mystery men. And no one is more mysterious than the unmentionable Diesel. He's back and hot on the trail of a little man in green pants who's lost a giant bag of money. Problem is, the money isn't exactly lost. Stephanie's Grandma Mazur has found it, and like any good Jersey senior citizen, she's hightailed it in a Winnebago to Atlantic City and hit the slots. With Lula and Connie in tow, Stephanie attempts to bring Grandma home, but the luck of the Irish is rubbing off on everyone: Lula's found a job modeling plus-size lingerie. Connie's found a guy. Diesel's found Stephanie. And Stephanie has found herself in over her head with a caper involving thrice-stolen money, a racehorse, a car chase, and a bad case of hives.
"Plum Lucky" is an all-you-can-eat buffet of thrills, chills, shrimp cocktail, plus-size underwear, and scorching hot men. It's a between-the-numbers treat no Evanovich fan will want to miss.
About the Author
Janet Evanovich is the author of the Stephanie Plum books, including "One for the Money" and "Sizzling Sixteen", and the Diesel & Tucker series, including "Wicked Appetite". Janet studied painting at Douglass College, but that art form never quite fit, and she soon moved on to writing stories. She didn't have instant success: she collected a big box of rejection letters. As she puts it, "When the box was full I burned the whole damn thing, crammed myself into pantyhose and went to work for a temp agency." But after a few months of secretarial work, she managed to sell her first novel for $2,000. She immediately quit her job and started working full-time as a writer. After 12 romance novels, she switched to mystery, and created Stephanie Plum. The rest is history. Janet's favorite exercise is shopping, and her drug of choice is Cheeze Doodles.

Praise for Janet Evanovich:
“Stephanie Plum is a bounty hunter with a great sense of humor that balances out her attitude and worse luck...like Dorothy Parker with a lousy job and a Jersey accent.”--Time “Chutzpah and sheer comic inventiveness…in addition to good fun, the Evanovich/Plum books serve as a nice antidote to everything in pop fiction today.”
--The Washington Post
“Evanovich is possibly the only mystery writer whose extreme humor can turn what should be serious moments into boisterously funny scenes....Evanovich makes comedy into a kind of art.”
--South Florida Sun-Sentinel Praise for Lorelei King:
“King keeps up with the fast pace of this story as well as cameos by all the eccentrics in the Plum cast, and creates astounding tension by capturing the cross-fire sarcasm of Diesel and Stephanie.” —AudioFile on Plum Lovin’ “Lorelei King once again displays her impeccable versatility as she portrays a dozen characters, not only sexy, savvy 30-year-old Plum, but also Plum’s two loves—mysterious Ranger and tough Vice cop Joe Morelli.” —AudioFile on Twelve Sharp
