IMO the Stephanie Plum series has run its course. It was a slog to finish this book. It had none of the laugh-out loud moments of the earlier books and the story line was incredibly boring. Like some of the other reviewers, I don't care for the Diesel and Wulf characters...not my cup of tea. Also, to me this book read like a "I've got to write something to satisfy my contract" book. The series was great while it lasted, but this is it for me.
