LOOK ALIVE 25 by Janet Evanovich

There's nothing like a good deli, and the Red River Deli in Trenton is one of the best. World-famous for its pastrami, coleslaw, and for its disappearing managers. Over the last month, three have vanished from the face of the earth, and the only clue in each case is one shoe that's been left behind. The police are baffled. Lula is convinced that it's a case of alien abduction. Whatever it is, they'd better figure out what's going on before they lose their new manager, Ms. Stephanie Plum.

I know I say it every year, but reading the latest Plum book is like catching up with old friends. It's an annual event that I look forward to. And when other books let me down, I know I can count on this series to put a smile on my face. 😊

Most days, Stephanie has enough trouble dealing with one job but now her cousin Vinnie has decided to make her the manager of the Red River Deli. She has no idea how to run a deli, but that's not even her biggest problem. 

The thing is, someone is abducting the deli managers and leaving only one shoe behind. So, unless Stephanie can figure out what's going on, she might get beamed up by aliens--which is Lula's theory. 

At least she has Morelli and Ranger to keep her safe, or use her as bait. Add the mysterious and creepy Wulf to the mix, and if she doesn't figure out what's going on soon, she might get herself into more trouble than usual...

Wow. What a fun book! I know it might sound weird saying that when so much danger and mayhem was going on, but it's true.

Even after SO many books, Stephanie & Co. still manage to drag me into their dangerous and hilarious world. The new mystery always hooks me in, and I can't wait to find out what's going on. Not to mention how caught up I get in all the other stuff in her chaotic relationship and family life.

Plus, I care a lot about these characters. I find myself swept away with what's happening to them, laugh out loud at all the crazy shenanigans, and end up on the edge of my seat while the mystery plays out. I also roll my eyes a few times because Stephanie always falls into trouble and mishaps way too easily. And this leads to some very  bizarre consequences. 

Yep. I'm a huge fan of this series for a LOT of reasons.

Look Alive 25 is yet another super fun addition to this very cool and totally awesome series. Every new book adds a little more danger, a certain degree of intrigue, and somehow manages to complicate Stephanie's life a bit more.

And THAT ending! Noooooo. I can't hang on for another year waiting to see what happens to a certain lady who finds her way into trouble even more often than Steph! 😩

I don't think I'll ever get tired of this series. I can't wait to see what's next for Stephanie.
