Evanovich’s clear and clever writing draws you in and then delivers a knockout punch.
Bounty-hunter Stephanie’s Plum grandma just got married. She married a local Trenton, New Jersey gangster named Jimmy Rosolli. But before the wedding day was even over Grandma Mazur was a widow. Jimmy dropped dead of a heart attack on the floor of the casino, right in front of the slot machine he was playing just 45 minutes after the nuptials.
Things turn dangerous for Grandma Masur when Jimmy’s former “business partners” the Lazy Boys, are convinced that his new widow has possession of the keys to a financial windfall. But the one thing these wise guys didn’t count on was Stephanie Plum. She’ll do anything to save her grandma, the one person who means the most to her.
“Grandma was in her mid-seventies and didn’t look a day over ninety.”
Sometimes you just need a book that is light and easy and fun. This is it. While a book about a death is not necessarily funny, Stephanie Plum’s exploits certainly are. She can always make me laugh. We couldn’t be more opposite, but I love her, I closed the cover of Twisted Twenty-Six with a huge smile on my face. It was exactly what I needed.
Janet Evanovich’s clear and clever writing draws you in and delivers a knockout punch. All the regular characters in this epic series are, as always, delightful. You can’t help but fall in love with Grandma Mazur and her flaming red hair, or Stephanie’s full-figured spandex-wearing sidekick Lula. And you can’t blame Stephanie for not being able to decide between Ranger and Morelli. Evanovich makes reading a pleasure. The twenty-sixth book in this series is no exception.
“Notice he called us losers and not quitters. That’s on account of we never quit. In my mind that’s the difference between a loser and a winner. A winner is willing to look like an idiot for as long as it takes to get the job done.”
