Lizzy and Diesel return once again in an all-new adventure in the #1 New York Times bestselling series from Janet Evanovich and her co-author, Phoef Sutton!
Murdered and mummified more than ninety years ago, bootlegger Collier “Peg Leg” Dazzle once found and re-hid a famous pirate’s treasure somewhere along the coast of New England. A vast collection of gold and silver coins and precious gems, the bounty also contains the Stone of Avarice — the very item reluctant treasure seeker, Lizzy Tucker, and her partner, Diesel, have been enlisted to find. While Lizzy would just like to live a quiet, semi-normal life, Diesel is all about the hunt. And this hunt is going to require a genuine treasure map and a ship worthy of sailing the seven seas . . . or at least getting them from Salem Harbor to Maine.
Greed is eternal and insatiable, and Lizzy and Diesel aren’t the only ones searching for the lost pirate’s chest. There are people who have dedicated their entire lives to finding it, and are willing to commit murder or make a deal with the devil, just to hold the fortune in their hands. One of those people may even be Wulf, Diesel’s deceptively charming and enigmatic cousin. Wulf desires the Stone of Avarice. He also desires Lizzy. It’s hard to say how far he’s willing to go to gain either one.
It’s a swashbuckling adventure full of raiders, monkeys, minions, and mayhem. Lizzy and Diesel are going to have to do everything they can to keep their heads above water and hope they are living a charmed life.
My take on this book: I can describe this book in two words: funny and awesome. Janet Evanovich has written another fabulous book with the help of Phoef Sutton. To me whenever the book has both Diesel and Carl the Monkey in it the book is going to be funny. No one even knows what to except to happen whenever Carl is there since he is a monkey that most definitely is not normal. Cat has a small part in this edition but I always smile when reading the Cat moments.
From the beginning to the end this book was just one funny and awesome adventure. A little bit crazy at times but that’s what happens when you mess with something that is enchanted with Greed. I do feel bad for Lizzy though I wonder if that poor girl is ever going to sell that cookbook of hers.
This book was just a really good read and I am giving it five butterflies for a rating since it’s that outstanding. If anyone asks me about this book for a recommendation I would totally say to read it but only if you have read the first two books. Well if you haven’t read the first two books it wouldn’t matter since it’s still a good book and I’m pretty sure you don’t need to read the first two. However, you should read them because they are pretty fabulous too.
Anyways until next time enjoy this book review brought to you by
