I knew my slump was abysmal when it took me two weeks to finish this book. I'm still slumping big time, but at least I managed to finish it before the end of the year. I'm marking this as an accomplishment, as my attention span is worse than Lula's at the moment.

Speaking of Lula, she was my only irritant in this book; her sandwich making 'genius' stretched the boundaries of believability more than her wardrobe usually does, and speaking of her wardrobe, kudos to Evanovich for making me laugh out loud - hard - with the scene in the deli where Lula's fashion choices prove incompatible with waitressing. I haven't laughed that hard since Grandma Mazur shot the turkey.

Otherwise, it was a standard Plum novel, albeit with more Ranger time, which I appreciated. Wulf from the between the numbers novels played a weird cameo part, and the book ended in something of a cliffhanger/lead-in to book 26, which is something new for Evanovich's novels. I tend to dislike these in general, though not enough to get het up about it.

Sad to say this will realistically be my last read for the year 2019, ::sniffle::. ( )

For much of Look Alive Twenty-Five, Stephanie and Lula run a deli that has been taken over by Vinnie as collateral for a lost bond. We meet interesting characters like the two line cooks named Richard and Stretch, who enjoy illegal drugs provided daily by one of the restaurants suppliers. There is much humor in Lula as sandwich artist and waitress when her tight clothing becomes a liability. The mystery involves previous managers of the deli who have gone missing from the back of the restaurant while taking out the trash. The only thing left of them is one of their shoes. Both Ranger and Morelli weigh in when they realize that Stephanie, who is now manager, is in danger of becoming one of the shoe-less victims.
This is another wonderful story by Evanovich who seems to be able to come up with endless predicaments for Stephanie and her friends. There were many laugh-out-loud moments in this book, and the mystery is complicated enough that it keeps the reader's interest right up to the very end.
I'm looking forward to finding out what happens with the cliffhanger involving Grandma Mazur in the next installment. Overall, another great read. ( )

Janet Evanovich is my go-to author when I need something light - She never disappoints.

In this episode of Stephanie Plum's world-she and her side-kick Lula get roped into running a deli -the chaos that develops keeps the reader chuckling until the final chapter. The one problem is that every time they hire a manager, he mysteriously goes missing. Stephanie's steady guy, Morelli, and her "guy on the side" Ranger are kept busy making sure
Stephanie is not the next one to end up missing.

I round down to 4 1/2 stars because Grandma was not a big part of the story, and she is one character I love to laugh at. However, the ending of "25" has me hopeful she will be a focal point in "26".

All I want for Christmas is for Ranger to call me and say "Babe" ( )

More of the same. At least we didn't have to read multiple times about Stephanie brushing her ponytail into place. ( )

Vinnie and the Hammer repossess the Red River Deli in Trenton, but the managers keep disappearing, leaving on a single sneaker behind. Stephanie Plum and her sidekick Lula are having a bad string of luck in apprehending folks who have skipped out on their bonds so Vinnie makes them work at the Deli. The two kitchen workers are funny, but both Ranger and Morelli are worried about Stephanie disappearing. And Wulf keeps popping in with interest in one of the missing managers. Not enough of Stephanie's family in this one, and Morelli is way too understanding about Stephanie's sleeping in Ranger's apartment. The plot is, as usual, pretty far fetched. Shocking for readers of this series, eh? ( )
