ZERO stars

Absolutely terrible! Written just to capitalize on the Christmas-themed publishing market. Stephanie Plum is visited by the mysterious Diesel, a “person” with other-worldly talents. He helps her track down her latest skip – Sandy Claws – who happens to operate a toy shop. It’s just four days until Christmas, and Stephie hasn’t gotten a tree, bought a present, put up any lights, baked any cookies or sent any cards (she hasn’t even bought any cards yet). Oh, my … how will she get out of this jam and get her man before the big day? Who cares?!

This is just a waste of paper.

A reread and a good one. ( )

Funny, maybe, some parts... mostly not....

Four days before christmas & Stephanie comes home to find Diesel in her kitchen. No tree, no lights, no gifts, no money.... but she's working on a skip. Sandy Claws, a toymaker (who has now gone into hiding) didn't show for his hearing and it's up to Steph. to pull him in. Diesel is sticking very close to Steph. and he's not saying why.

All of a sudden there are major electrical storms, fires, power outages and they seem to be connected to Sandy Claws...... Turns out Sandy Claws is a "special" person like Diesel and Sandy's once best friend, Ring, has escaped from his lockdown unit and is out to get Sandy. In between Ring, is also harassing Steph.

Adding to the chaos is Grandma Mazur, who is missing her teeth and Steph's divorced sister Valerie who finds she is now pregnant..... Morelli is not a major part in this story, but he makes a few appearances. Ranger is completely out of the picture.....

No I really didn't like this..... it was just filler and not very much of a story. I like Diesel in the "Wicked" series better...... It's just too much adding into Stephanie's already full bag of insanity.

What I did like was this quote: "Aside from all the religious blah blah blah, which we won't get into....... I think christmas is whatever turns you on. That's what I really believe. Everyone decides what they want out of christmas. Then everyone gets a shot at making it happen." -- Diesel ( )

Stephanie Plum with a Supernatural twist! Fun characters, but the story seemed unfinished and rushed. I wonder what would have happened if Ranger and Diesel met... Stephanie would spontaneously combust! Well, maybe Lula! ( )

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0312986343, Mass Market Paperback)

Christmas in bounty hunter Stephanie Plum's world isn't quite like Christmas in Whoville. With only four days to go before December 25, she doesn't have a decorated tree in her apartment or any presents bought. Plus she's chasing an elusive bail-jumper named Sandy Claws; a hunky guy named Diesel is literally popping in and out of her apartment; and a mob of manic elves is threatening to assault her with cookies. The end result is that Stephanie is feeling a tad stressed over the holiday season. Life isn't any calmer over at her parents' home in the Burg, where Grandma Mazur is dating a new octogenarian stud muffin; sister Valerie is wailing over some unwelcome news; and Stephanie's mother is coping by belting back tumblers of Red Roses in the kitchen. Just where is the elusive Mr. Claws hiding, and why? What's causing the power blackouts all over Trenton? And what about the mysterious villain, Mr. Ring? Is all of this real, or is Stephanie just having a very bad dream?

Janet Evanovich's mysteries are eagerly awaited by fans everywhere and this holiday installment won't disappoint. With a returning cast of entertaining, quirky characters and a rock-solid setting in New Jersey wrapped around an intriguing mystery, Evanovich delivers yet another hilarious adventure featuring irrepressible bounty hunter Stephanie Plum. --Lois Faye Dyer
