If you are hoping this is FINALLY the book where Stephanie makes a choice between Morelli or Ranger, then you will be thoroughly disappointed again. If you are interested in a book where Stephanie is not so predictable, then you will be rolling your eyes again. But if you are interested in keeping up with this series, sit back with this same-story-different-title. The characters have not grown (unless you count growing on the annoyance factor). In fact, the characters actions are so predictable, you can write the ending yourself.
I had hope about Explosive 18. Because it was released so soon after Smokin' 17, I assumed something big would happen in the series. I was expecting some big change that would merit Evanovich releasing another book of the series sooner than expected. I thought I might actually get into this mystery more than the last few Plum books. But now? After reading in its entirety? I am ready to chuck the deuces to the entire series and stop reading the Stephanie Plum series altogether. (Or at least give Evanovich until the 20th book to stop this train on its tracks.)
