Here we go again Plum fans. The newest 'between-the-numbers' novella has been announced. It will hit bookshelves January 8, 2008 and at barely under 200 pages is going to be almost $20! What is wrong with this picture? The last one, Plum 'Lovin was a dollar cheaper! I'm feeling ripped off.
And these 'between-the-numbers' books are fun but they don't advance the storyline any. The love triangle of Ranger, Morelli, and Stephanie never changes and after Lean Mean Thirteen something needs to happen. But I doubt this will be the book to make those changes.
But I'm going to buy it anyway.(even though at $20 with tax I should know better and wait for the paperback!) I'll read and enjoy it for what it is; pure fluff with some characters I just really like. The sad thing is Plum 'Lovin had a lot more humor in it than the last few full novels and I feel this one will be the same. Is there hope for the 14th Plum mystery if the 'between-the-numbers' novellas are ten times better?
