Wicked Appetite by Janet Evanovich

Number one bestselling author Janet Evanovich has created a brand-new heroine in Elizabeth Tucker: Marblehead resident, bakery worker, unlucky in love and descendant of witches. Life has had a pleasant predictability to it for Lizzy. That is until a tall, black-haired, dark eyed man shows up in a black sports car, touches her hand and leaves a burn mark. His name is Gerwulf Grimoire, also known as Wulf. And he wants what Lizzy has: knowledge. Almost simultaneously comes another man, a different man, but this one just as dangerous in his own way. His name is Diesel. And he wants several things Lizzy has, only one of them being knowledge. Unbeknownst to Lizzy, she has the ability to find "empowered objects." Turns out, a collection of stones that represent the seven deadly sins have made their way to Marblehead. Nothing bad can happen if the stones are all separated. But if they are grouped together, they have the power to unleash hell on earth. Wulf wan ts them. Diesel wants to stop him. And Lizzy is the key to all of it. Can Lizzy stay one step ahead of two men who both want her both body and soul? Can she juggle her job at Dazzle's bakery and still get the muffins out in time every morning? Can she stop the end of the world from occuring? For Elizabeth Tucker, cupcakes, 4 a.m. alarm clock settings, and Armageddon are all in a day's work (from the publisher).
Janet Evanovich has done it once again for me. I am totally obsessed with her "Stephanie Plum" series and this one has won me over. This is the start of a new series which has a new heroine to laugh at and fall in love with. Her name is Lizzie and she works in a bakery as a cupcake maker (I really want to taste one of her cupcakes by the way). She meets the gorgeous and rugged Diesel (who makes an appearance in the "In-between the numbers" novels with Stephanie Plum) and he takes her on a wild and hilarious adventure to find a stone which is one part to the mysterious Seven Deadly Sins stones. This book was really easy to read and has more new characters to have a good time with, I was there with them all the way. I can't wait for the rest of the series to come out. Now I will be looking forward to more books by Janet Evanovich. So, for lovers of the "Stephanie Plum" novels, there is something new for you to dig your teeth into!
Rating - I give this 5/5
