Morelli or Ranger?
If you’re a Stephanie Plum fan, you’ll know what I’m talking about. If you’ve never heard of her, you’ve got some new books on your TBR pile. I have to admit, I don’t read these books for their plots. I can’t even remember half of them (and yes, some of them are repetitive). I read them for the humour, the dialogue, the crazy characters, and the relationships. Yeah, mostly for the relationships.
With the latest book about to come out, I’ve started wondering how many more books Janet Evanovich plans to write. By my rough calculations Stephanie must be well past thirty-five by now. I love her zany adventures, but, like her long-suffering mom, I also want to see her settled down. I don’t want her to keep circling the same territory without making a decision.
After so many books it’s time to start wrapping things up, in my opinion. So how is Evanovich going to everyone happy? I want Stephanie to end up with Morelli, but there’ll be others who think Ranger is just too HOT to pass up. We can’t all be satisfied, can we?
The wrap up of a popular series can leave a bad taste if it’s not done properly, but my money’s on Evanovich pulling this off sometime in the future. In the meantime, I’m looking forward to Smokin’ Seventeen.
