Wicked Charms,A Lizzy and Diesel Novel,  Janet Evanovich, Phoef Sutton
Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews
Genre:  Mystery & Thrillers
Well, if you’ve read books one and two you’ll know this isn’t a heart stopping, scary, hide head under cushions type thriller, but a slapstick type mystery to solve. Once again Lizzy and Diesel have paired up to find another  SAGLIA Stone, this time the one for greed. Its the same kind of comedic read, with Lizzy going from one drama to the next, getting into constant danger, and being rescued just in time. Cat takes a lesser role which I missed, I like him, but Carl also appears less and that’s great, as to be honest his “Eeps” and “giving the finger” are getting boring and simply annoying. It was funny the first few times but but when it was mentioned for what seemed like the twentieth time just in the first book, the humour had long since worn off. Glo is in the thick of this adventure, accompanied by Broom – she’s scatty, and a great addition to the gang with her haphazard spells, and of course there’s Clara the bakery owner. I do wonder how they ever manage to make money as it seems secondary to helping Lizzy and Diesel at times.
The connection between Lizzy and Diesel is as hot as ever, he’s a jerk at times but does seem to genuinely feel something for Lizzy other than simply attraction, and they’ve worked a sneaky way round the “two unmentionables must not get together” edict!!
Its a fun read, light-hearted and very much like the first two. For devoted fans it’ll be a book to devour but though I enjoyed it there’s too much similarity to books one and two for me to give a higher star rating. Its well written but nothing new really jumping out at me, and if the search for the next four stones are like this then its one I’ll pass on even though I’ve enjoyed the humour of these first three stories.

Stars: Three, fun read but nothing new added from first two.

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on amazon.co.uk for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.
