Series: Stephanie Plum #17
Published: June 2011
Dead bodies are showing up in shallow graves on the empty construction lot of Vincent Plum Bail Bonds. No one is sure who the killer is, or why the victims have been offed, but what is clear is that Stephanie’s name is on the killer’s list.
Short on time to find evidence proving the killer’s identity, Stephanie faces further complications when her family and friends decide that it’s time for her to choose between her longtime off-again-on-again boyfriend, Trenton cop Joe Morelli, and the bad boy in her life, security expert Ranger. Stephanie’s mom is encouraging Stephanie to dump them both and choose a former high school football star who’s just returned to town. Stephanie’s sidekick, Lula, is encouraging Stephanie to have a red-hot boudoir “bake-off.” And Grandma Bella, Morelli’s old-world grandmother, is encouraging Stephanie to move to a new state when she puts “the eye” on Stephanie.
With a cold-blooded killer after her, a handful of hot men, and a capture list that includes a dancing bear and a senior citizen vampire, Stephanie’s life looks like it’s about to go up in smoke.
I am not going to say much because by now I am mostly annoyed at myself that I keep on reading these books. The theme is always the same.
Grandma Mazur shows her gun, Lola eats and flirts, a car explodes, Steph can’t catch her bad guys, and she thinks about Morelli and Ranger and how she can’t make her mind up. Yes, I get it! And that is what happened here. She got it on with both of them and nothing was resolved at all. Sighs.
Still the moment I saw it at the library I got it and read it the next day. I am a sucker for punishment it seems. Because they are funny, sadly not laugh out loud funny any more. But still smiling funny.
But what I have to say it, make your mind up! Just choose a damn guy. And as for the plot, so easy to figure out. Arghhhh, she is never going to choose is she? Why can’t some authors end a series on top instead of dragging it out until it bleeds and screams?
But in the end, better than book 16.

A collection of the first four issues of the popular Lenore comic book series. Lenore: Noogies is a romp into the dark, surreal world of a little dead girl. Featuring stories about limbless cannibals, clock monsters, cursed vampire dolls, taxidermied friends and obssesed would be lover and more fuzzy animal mutilations than should be legal. Lenore is one of the funniest, darkest comic books on the marketplace today.
I loved it! It was cute and creepy and utterly amazing. The style was weird and what more can I say, just read it. So freaking cute!
Best series about a little dead girl ever, a girl who tortures animals. Yes like I said creepy 😉 I am so glad that I found one more at the library.

This volume collects issues 5-8 of the Lenore series and also contains a brand new, never before seen, color Lenore story.
Best comic I have ever read 🙂 Who thought a creepy, cute little dead girl would be so fun to read about. A girl who accidentally kills her kitties.
If I were to recommend a comic then yes it would be this one. Creepy and cute is just a perfect match. Oh and do not forget funny too, because that is sure is. Very amusing in a morbid way.
