Book - Plum Lucky

Plum Lucky (A Between-the-Numbers Novel) by Janet Evanovich
Grandma Mazur is missing and Stephanie Plum, with the help of Diesel, and the girls from the office (Lulu and Connie) tracks her down in Atlantic City, gambling with what turns out to be a Mobsters (Lou Delvina) money. Grandma Mazur has stumbled into the money (literally) and since it is St. Patrick’s day, she believes that the leprechaun (Snuggy O’Connor) has left her the duffel bag full of money at the end of a rainbow. That leprechaun had other plans for the money, he wanted to save an old racehorse (Doug), now Doug and Grandma Mazur have been kidnapped and are being held in return for the duffel bag of money.

***3 Funny and quick to read, a light-hearted adventure that takes this strange group of friends on another interesting and unusual trip. Some of the characters are so off the wall it is hard not to laugh at their antics. Stephanie was a little (stress on the world little) more reserved this time, I mean her favorite grandma was kidnapped by a mobster. I really enjoyed some of Stephanie’s phone conversations with Ranger and Morelli, short and concise and never giving away too much information. “Who would put a horse in an apartment? That’s dumb.”
