Totaled car? check.
Viewing at Stiva's? check.
Bad guys? check.
Hot guys? check and check.
Random guys breaking into Stephanie's apartment? check.
Quips about NJ and all its beauty? check.
So, what's different? Stephanie is trying on wedding gowns and her previously perfect sister is trying on lesbian for a while. Moon Man and Dougie are missing, a mobster has a heart attack, and there are a pair of old Italian ladies that makes Grandma Morelli look like Mother Theresa. Things get ugly in Seven Up...including Stephanie's hair color.
I laughed so hard while reading Hot Six I couldn't wait to go for Seven Up. I think reading the two books back-to-back took away some of the hilarity. Usually I read a few heavier books in between, making the Janet Evanovich series feel like a cold beer on a hot day. I'm taking another break, and I'll be back with Hard Eight. Seven Up might not have been my favorite, but I'm still moving on to No. 8.
For an excerpt or audio sample, go to the Seven Up page at Janet Evanovich's website.
