Wicked Charms by Janet Evanovich

I was not quite aware of what I was getting into when I chose this book. It is not a genre I am generally happy with but the author was one I have seen on several blogs so I thought its time I gave it a fair go! Was I in for a surprise.

Monkeys, pirates, sort of vampirish figures, buried treasure, spells, a man behaving like a dog, a cupcake and bakery shop filled with delicious treats and characters definitely out of the ordinary.

A story of hidden treasure and clues hidden in a coin and a diamond and naturally every one around is hurrying trying to get there first.

Greed and avarice and a bit of lust thrown in for good measure this was a very different read for me.
Very pleasant!

Nice that you enjoyed a change. I haven't really read anything much by JE but I believe she can be quite humorous too!

I've never read these or her Stephanie Plum series though I did watch the film version of One For the Money. A lot of people seem to like her writing. Glad you enjoyed this.

I've read a lot of her Stephanie Plum books but I'm not sure this is for me.

Sweetheart, I don't know you but Jesus does, and if Jesus knows you and I know Jesus, then I know you. I wouldn't be so overly concerned with what nasty America thinks; I would only be concerned about how do I reach Seventh-Heaven and my family.

Why else does a moth fly FROM the night
than to a bold, attractive candle Light??
Don’t let His extravagant brilliance be extinguished.
You’re creative, yes? Then, fly-away with us…

Whether you obtain morality4mortality to wiseabove
or just glean tantalizing specimens for thy next best seller,
I realize my penname is quite morbid, yet,
you shall find in our blogs a lotta (subliminal) moxie
which has taken this sinfull mortal yeeeeers to compile:
I lay it ALL out for you, dear, with All-Star-Oxygems:

Wouldn’t ya love an endless eternity
of aplomBombs falling on thy indelible cranium?
An XtraXcitinXpose with no
An IQ much higher than K2?
An extraordinarily, anti-establishment victory
with a sardonic, satirical wit Who’s savvy??
Here’s what the exquisite, prolific GODy sed
(with a most-excellent-detector of bull§ht):

“Faith, hope, and love,
the greatest of these is love -
jump into faith...
and you'll see with love”
Doesn’t matter if you don’t believe (what I write);
God believes in you.

Meet me Upstairs, girl, where the Son never goes down
from a passionate, lucrative iconoclasm where you’ll find
of deluxe-HTTP [<- pi] opportunities for excitement BTW.

Do it. Do the deed, dude. Sign into the Big-Zaftig-House.
