    As you can see from my previous reviews (24, 23, 22, 21, and 20) I am not happy with the way this series has gotten terribly formulaic. The characters grew briefly only to be stunted back again one book later. No decisions are ever made. Cars are totaled, Lula dresses ridiculous, Grandma goes crazy, Stephanie's mom is tempted to day drink (as am I reading the newer books), Rex never ages, and Stephanie can't choose between Ranger and Morelli.According to the synopsis it looks like she has a new As you can see from my previous reviews (24, 23, 22, 21, and 20) I am not happy with the way this series has gotten terribly formulaic.

Cars are totaled, Lula dresses ridiculous, Grandma goes crazy, Stephanie's mom is tempted to day drink (as am I reading the newer books), Rex never ages, and Stephanie can't choose between Ranger and Morelli.According to the synopsis it looks like she has a new job. That sounds promising. I hope this is an indication of something new. Please for the love of Pete! Pick a guy, whether Ranger or Morelli or a new character, add some life into this repetitive madness, and let it end on a good note! I don't care if that means Stephanie manages a deli in Trenton and marries someone and settles with a bunch of kids or if she goes and does something different. Just don't be the same old thing. Maybe have her write a book! She has plenty of experience to draw from... let her make millions writing about the life of a Jersey bounty hunter that gets made into a movie and she can retire rich and not have to be this insane mess who constantly stumbles into awful situations to "save the day".I ranted. My apologies.After reading review will be awhile as I refuse to pay money for this book and will wait for a library copy.

    These are so ridiculous, I don't even know why I'm adding this next one. But I know I'll read it, so I might as well have it on my list.

    Unfortunately, the continued deterioration of quality of this series has caused me to bail on the whole thing.And I am so mad about it. I invested 23 books worth of reading time but, man, Hardcore Twenty-Four was just *so* bad that I find I no longer have the wherewithal to continue following Stephanie Plum on her wacky adventures. Additionally, Hardcore Twenty-Four made it clear to me that Ms. Evanovich no longer cares about Stephanie Plum beyond how much money this series makes her.

Additionally, Hardcore Twenty-Four made it clear to me that Ms. Evanovich no longer cares about Stephanie Plum beyond how much money this series makes her. Stephanie Plum hasn't seen any kind of growth since probably (if I'm being generous) the 14th or 15th in the series, and there's only so many times a car getting blown up/stolen/stripped for parts can be funny.And, for God's sake, if she's going to be a completely inept, if funny, bounty hunter, have her decide on a man! The 'who will she choose?!' romantic subplot has become super tiresome. It could be Rex the hamster at this point for all I care; it's just not even a good cliffhanger to end on anymore, and I want so much more for Stephanie after spending 23 books with her. If she were really one of my friends, I would've shaken her out of frustration; as it is, I'm relegated to writing one star reviews on books that aren't even out yet, which I'm also annoyed about.

    Currently am awaiting book 25- for no other reason then I have invested 24 books worth of reading. I have rated this as a 1 due to the increasingly weak storylines since book 14/15ish. I’ve read more interesting fan fiction for these novels then the actual stories themselves. I will ‘try’ to read 25- but if everything is the same in the first 3 chapters then I will be abandoning it and the series.If it hooks me and seems that this time it may be different then I will amend my review and rating.
