Carol - I know exactly how you feel about JE's series. Never do I laugh out loud while reading other books - I always laugh out loud with this series and her earlier works. Apparently, I have no literary taste because old fans are complaining about her work but I continue in my ignorance and love these books. As you say am spoiled for other authors. Waiting for Plum Spooky.

Janet has spoilt my reading of other books forever. Nothing compares to Janets books. I love the way that each character comes to life and I can see them all in my minds eye. I hope she ends up with Joe, as he is less secretive, and very sexy. She needs to settle down in marriage, but continue with that zany life she leads.

I got it from the library. I was afraid to spend the money to buy after some of the criticism . I really enjoyed it. Stephanie is getting more mature and I like that she seems to be more with Joe. There was enough laughs and loony folks. It was another fun read. I'll probably wait for the PB to buy.

This was the first time I read reviews before I read the book. I have to say I enjoyed it even though I missed Ranger. I was at work, reading it during break, laughing out loud. I'm not sure who I want her with. I'm wondering what the next one will be like.

I read FF today. I thought it was the worst in the Plum series. The story just seemed to drag with the first third of the book dealing with the Brenda storyline that just didn't really seem to have a point except that it gave Janet a way to put Ranger in the book. It just seems like the series has gotten stale with too many recycled parts. I did like more of a focus on Morelli, and it seems like maybe Janet is ending this love triangle nonsense once and for all. The last few books seem to have reinforced the relationship between Joe and Stephanie. I'll keep reading the series, but I have lost much of my enthusiasm for it. There was a day when I'd run out to get the books on the Tuesday they were released and then read them immediately. I bought this one last weekend and just got around to reading it today. Thankfully I've discovered some authors that I'm enjoying more than JE now.

Thank you Plum Fan - I knew Plum Spook is coming out, but I didn't know it was supposed to be full-length. I hope so!

Marie - there will be another book in January called Plum Spooky. I had heard it would be a full length book. We shall see. I was not disappointed in FF. It was to me the same quirky stuff I have come to love from Janet and this series. What did everyone else think. Sherry

I am dissapointed in book 14- I'm 3/4 of the way through it and I actually have no desire to finish it. There was not enough Ranger and I'm tired of the Stephanie-Morelli relationship.

Ok, as you can see from my previous posts, I love these books and have stated there is only so much she can do with the skips, but these were terrible! I never thought I would say that a Plum book, but I was sooo disappointed! Barely any Ranger, no tension or flirting when he was there, no car loss LOL, only one family dinner and nothing funny about it. I am sooo disappointed!

Ok, I was seriously disappointed with this book. Ranger was almost a no-show in the book, and there was non of sexual tension and Ranger/Steph fun that I have come to love. I have read a lot of reviews and fanfic etc, and I would say that about 85% of readers want Steph to get together with Ranger over Morelli. I am one of those people. I am seriously disappointed by this. I think JE has drawn out the Ranger/Morelli contest for too long now, it's time she actually chose. It would add a completely new dynamic for her (especially if she got together with Ranger). Imagine everything that could happen if she hooked up with Ranger....
