Lean Mean Thirteen by Janet Evanovich

Published 2007
Genre: Mystery/Humor/Romance
Pages: 310

Yes, this series has become predictable and formulaic, but I continue to enjoy it because it’s quick and not much of a time commitment. In this one, Stephanie’s ex – Dickie Orr has disappeared and Stephanie is under suspicion for his murder. Cars are destroyed, Lula’s wardrobe and attitude are both outrageous, Connie is still one of my favorite characters, Joe and Ranger almost get along, the FTAs Stephanie is after are freaks. About the only thing different is that we find out Tank’s real name.

Stephanie says it best herself:
"It's my life," I said to him. "It's complicated."

I can’t help myself. Ranger just gets me all twitterpated.

Yes, her life is definitely complicated. LOL I enjoy the series too.

Ranger... oh... mercy!

In a whole different way than when I beg for coffffeeeeeee in the mornings...

... well, maybe not so different! ;-)

I'm still a "Joe" girl.

Funny side note. Daughter Donna was watching Penn State football last week. She kept rooting for the quarterback - yelling "Come on, JOE." The guy's name is Anthony - MORELLI. She must have had Stephanie and Joe on the brain!

Much as I loved this series in the beginning, I lost it at 10 and my 'life is too short to read not so fun books' rule stands.
That said, I am a Ranger girl. I have him all mental imaged and he is yummeh! And I like Lula of all the chicks in the series.

I'm probably the only person in blogdom who hasn't read this series. I better get with it!

Literary Feline: I loved that line.

~C: Oh yeah - those bad boys.

Lynne: great story!!

Vickie: Some series do go on longer than they probalby should, huh? I'm still enjoying this one.

Booklogged: Oh, I'm sure you're not the only one ;-)

Sometimes predictable and formulaic also mean "easy on the brain", which is nice. I love Stephanie, Ranger and Morelli.

Bookfool: exactly! Easy on the brain is nice sometimes.

Twitterpated? Did you make that up? ;)
