I was a big fan of Evanovich and Stephanie Plum up until about book 11 in the series. For me, things went flat…the writing, the characters…the storylines. As the numbers progressed, nothing changed. The characters didn’t grow, the sexual tension didn’t intensify, nor was a partner decision ever made by Stephanie, and the story appeared to be written in some standard formula—a big writer no-no. I hadn’t quite given up on the series though, and made it to Tricky Twenty-Two, but now I’m done.
