Twisted Twenty-Six | Janet Evanovich
31 posts | 27 read | 2 reading | 5 to read
Stephanie Plum's career has taken more wrong turns than a student driver on the Jersey Turnpike, and her love life is a hopeless tangle. In order to save someone dear to her, she'll have to straighten things out in Twisted Twenty-Six the latest, novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Janet Evanovich. Grandma Mazur is a widow...again. This time her marriage lasted a whole 45 minutes. The unlucky groom was one Jimmy Rosolli, local gangster, lothario (senior division) and heart attack waiting to happen...well, the waiting's over. It's a sad day, but if she can't have Jimmy at least Grandma can have all the attention she wants as the dutiful widow. But some kinds of attention are not welcomed, particularly when Jimmy's former "business partners" are convinced that his widow is keeping the keys to their financial success for herself. As someone who has spent an entire career finding bad guys, a set of missing keys should be no challenge for Stephanie Plum. Problem is, the facts are as twisted as a boardwalk pretzel with mustard.

This book was a huge surprise for me, and in a very good way!! There was a ton of character growth while still retaining the humor that we all come to expect from the Stephanie Plum series. We still have some of the repetitive qualities of prior books (quick backstory in the beginning, etc), as well as mentions of previous FTAs, and some newer ones... 👇🏻

vkois88 but this book primarily focuses on one thing. Family. It was heartfelt and well thought out and I really appreciated the different tone. This will forever be a favorite series. 4⭐️ 2w
MidnightBookGirl Nice! Just when I think I'm done with Plum 2w
vkois88 @MidnightBookGirl I love them for a fun, easy read that I know is sure to get a laugh out of me... and this one provided several of those moments still, but I really enjoyed it. I think I‘ll always go back to the Plums 2w

My first book of 2020 finished. 1/75 #twentyinthetitle I am doing a lot of challenges and this filled one prompt in 6 of them. There were a few where it just didn‘t work. Pop Sugar is first and foremost though, and this filled one of the advanced prompts. Moving on to Wonder, for one of the #Booked2020 prompts.

I am excited that I was able to read every published Stephanie Plum book this year. Well, the main 26 books. I only read one of the holiday shorts from the series. This is a fun, dont have to think hard, fluffy series.

Today‘s candle is called Santa‘s Cocoa and smells of hot cocoa. So I picked the tea inspired by The Lion The Witch and The Wardrobe. It is a black tea with cinnamon, cardamom, ginger, cloves, and chocolate. Trying to fit this book in before the New Years. This series books are fast reads and funny. @Clwojick @StayCurious @Bookworm54 #wintergames #teamnutcracker

Interesting change in tone for this Stephanie Plum outing... with the exception of accidentally throwing a Molotov cocktail at her own car - this was not played for laughs. Since it ended on a cliffhanger (sort of) it‘s entirely possible that the dissatisfaction that Stephanie felt about all aspects of her life will actually carry over into the next book and some character development might actually stick!

ralexist I've talked to a lot of folks who noticed that 26 felt different. That it might just get better. The character self-reflection and possible growth was something I noticed too. Maybe, for those of us who stuck with it, we'll get a better Plum! 3w
thegirlwiththelibrarybag @ralexist, I‘m hoping this is the beginning of the end - and she totally deserves to go out in style! 3w
CarolynM I've hung in there through the whole series, but it has been diminishing returns for a while. You're giving me more hope for this one🙂 3w
thegirlwiththelibrarybag @CarolynM, first one in awhile that I finished and didn‘t feel ripped off 😂 hope you enjoy! 3w

Finished in one day and I loved it! The last few books in this series have been disappointing, especially the last one. This book was great! Back to some of the original antics, but Stephanie also kicked ass. Love that her Grandma Mazur was a major character in this one. It did feel a bit like maybe Evanovich is beginning to wrap up the series, but I really liked the direction this one takes. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5

Yes, the series is formulaic. Yes, the series is pretty fluffy/silly. Yes, I still largely enjoy an annual visit with some of my favorite characters.

I had surgery on my right (dominant) hand yesterday. As one of my childhood friends commented yesterday, “good thing it wasn't [my] reading hand!“

Stacypatrice “Your reading hand.” 😂 Hope it‘s not painful ... you should probably have icecream and a cookie to stay ahead of any pain! 1mo
Leftcoastzen Hope you heal soon! 1mo

JoyBlue @Megabooks @LauraJ @Eggbeater @CarolynM @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks Thanks, everyone, for the well wishes!!! Each day, it's getting less sore. I think there's hope for recovery. Showering is a major pain in the drain—all through today's shower, I was wondering if it would be worth paying someone to wash my hair daily. It's mighty hard to keep the hand dry. Sigh. 1mo
CarolynM I broke my right arm (I'm right handed) a many years ago when I had long hair. My husband had to wash, brush and tie it up for me. The marriage very nearly didn't survive it😬😉 1mo
JoyBlue @CarolynM Oh, no! 🤭😉 I know he can‘t help it, but I have to admit that I‘m (more than) a little salty that DH (who‘s supposed to be taking care of me) has been sick/getting sicker throughout this. I‘m struggling to recover *and* waiting on him!! Rotten timing! 1mo
CarolynM That is rotten timing! Why is it that problems so often seem to come all at once? Hope you're both maintaining your sense of humour and getting better quickly😘 (edited) 1mo

Loved it! But then, I do love all the stephanie plum books. And this is the first one to have a cliffhanger! We have to wait til next year to find out what happens next, but according to Evanovich, this story line is a 3-parter. Heavy sigh. BTW, Ranger or Joe Morelli?? Personally, I‘d choose ranger!

I was pleasantly surprised. The last few in the series have put Stephanie in a holding pattern, and I was worried that would continue. This one made very definite waves toward ending that. I'm wondering if the next book is the last in this series, as the title doesn't follow the number pattern. I can't wait to find out.

I breezed through the latest Stephanie Plum book. I enjoyed this one and thought it was better than her last few books. Stephanie seems to have grown, in her thought process and to a degree her maturity. There were a few laugh out loud moments, but I also had a feeling that the mystery element played more of a role this time than it has lately.

I‘m using this for the #NeverEndingSeries prompt for #GrowUp #BBRC .

Well...it took a dozen or so books but I actually think that Evanovich is starting to care about her characters again. This wasn't bad. It had some classic Stephanie Plum moments, but it wasn't like the last several where it seemed like she just recycled plot points and threw in some filler text. Don't get me wrong, it's not great yet, but there's a glimmer of hope that series can turn it around and pull Plum out of character purgatory.

After the last few just being ok, I didn‘t have super high expectations but this is the best Stephanie Plum story in a long time. Revolving around Grandma Mazur‘s unfortunately poor choice of marrying a mobster who dies promptly a few hours after her marriage (not a spoiler, this is the beginning of the book). Much classic mayhem ensues, with all of our favorite characters. Definitely recommend to my fellow fans of this series!

Scochrane26 I decided to stop reading the series after being bored w/ 25 last year. Maybe I‘ll eventually check this one out, since you liked it. 2mo
Readswithcoffee Put in a request at the library. Looks like I‘ll be waiting awhile 😂 2mo
Nessavamusic @Readswithcoffee yeah I put in a hold before release so, snagged it early 😁 2mo
Michollio I'm glad to hear it. I was wondering if I was going to have to drop this series. 2mo

Booknerd2 @thegirlwiththelibrarybag The older ones are definitely better but this one was pretty good. 2mo
thegirlwiththelibrarybag @Booknerd2, for sure! I‘m still hopeful that she‘ll let Stephanie move forward with her life/end the series at some point in the near future 2mo

Despite the repetition in this series, my heart leaps a little when the new one arrives for me at the library. Hooray for escaping from reality for a little while!

Bookzombie I gave up after the last one, but I‘m curious to see what you think. It‘s in the back of my head often that there is a new one out. 🤪 2mo
Hooked_on_books I think these are getting a little old for me, but since they usually come out at Thanksgiving when my mom and I are together, we share them by me reading them to her. We both really enjoy it. 2mo
