Summer kicks off once again with a new one in Janet Evanovich’s numbered series–Smokin’ Seventeen featuring Stephanie Plum and the gang. We find bounty hunter Stephanie still torn between the two men in her life when a third appears on the scene. Add to that an elderly vampire, the usual fires and hijinks. Evanovich has another winner on her hands–218,000 copies were sold the first day according to PW.
The movie version of the first in this series, One for the Money had a June release date which has been rescheduled until Januarey. News reports indicate Katherine Heigl’s performance as Stephanie is less than spectacular. Even if the movie had rave reviews I wouldn’t go see it. I prefer my own image of the gang–no mere mortal could come close to my version of Ranger.
