Hilarious. Can't wait for the next one!
I'm not a big Evanovich fan, but my sister and I listened to this audio book on a five hour trip last week, and it kept us laughing all the way. We are both looking forward to the next one in the series.

WAY BEYOND SILLY---
I thoroughly enjoyed the earlier Stephanie Plum books but found some of the later ones just okay, if not a bit silly...Well, this new series blows "silly" out of the water. Beyond ridiculous is more like it. A shame really as Diesel's search for the Seven Deadly Sins ancient relics could have been fun. I found the heroine, Lizzie, quite boring and the narrator used an irritating voice for her. I couldn't place the accent and her speech sounded like an older person with loose dentures that kept slipping and making a slight whistle on the S sound. Luckily, her accent came and went.
The featured sin was gluttony but its relation to food was very much overdone to the point of grimacing. The mystery was scant, the unimpressive "bad guy" hardly made an appearance, and the romance was non existing. They'll have to look for the future sins without me.

Good example of Evanovich humor with light romanctic undertones. Good to listen to while working. Fun, fabulous, loved it.

Evanovich spun off the character Diesel from the "Plum Series". This follows the same light hearted, tongue in cheek style. The characters are interesting and funny. This was an ideal release for the Halloween season. This book leaves you laughing. Lorelei King is great narrating this book. Evanovich is a master of dialog.

Pratical Magic meets Indiana Jones
Janet once again proves herself to be the queen of rapier wit and pithy one liners. Lighten up ye critics!!! I too have read the Stephanie Plum series and do not agree that Stephanie and Lizzie are interchangeable. There are some similarities but enough subtle differences that the discernable listener (reader) will be able to appreciate Lizzie. I think as the series progresses she will grow as a character. Yes, I would like to see a little more ???Laura Croft ???in Lizzie but let???s give her time to develop. This is only the beginning. We learn more about Wolf and Diesel???s background, and Glo is nothing like LuLa, more like what Aunt Clara from Bewitched would be like as a teenager. Cat 7143 is an enigma with lots of potential. Team Cat up with Carl the monkey and the possibilities are endless. The series has tremendous potential if Janet is willing to take some risks. Wicked is a combination of Alice Hoffman???s Practical Magic and Indiana Jones. Lizzie and Diesel's search for the ancient relics, which are talismans for the seven deadly sins, is just getting started. This adventure is just the precursor of more hilarious, action-oriented escapades to come!

a fun time
Perfect story for driving. Makes you smile in the worst traffic. Easy to follow the storyline no matter how many times you have to turn the book off.

Only thought it was new
Well, basically it is a Stephanie Plum novel with new window dressing. Lizzie=Stef, Clara=Connie, Glo=Lula, Diesel= Ranger. Even the Porshe Cheyenne is the same! Come on Janet, can't you come up with something different? Yes, there were quite a few hilarous moments and man, I wanted some cupcakes the entire time I listened to the book!!

LOL - yeah - LOL
Loved it - I know - it's a Janet Evanovich book so I expected excatly what I got.
It's a bit like the Stephanie Plum novels but with a fresher touch. Diesel is the main male charcter here and - well - if you know Diesel you know what I mean - hot - outspoken - but never too much.
Carl reappears, too and we get to know a lot funny sidecharacters, too.
All in all it is a funny chick lit with some supernatural touches, the ideas are interesting and I want to know how the story conitnues.
For a good laugh and a day at the pool - I highly recommend it.
