I really miss Stephanie from the first 10 books!
Reviewed in the United States on July 23, 2014
I can't believe it took me this long to finish this book. Gone are the days of waiting with breathe that is baited for the next book, and staying up all night to speed through the book, one belly laugh after another. It took me this long because it bored me to sleep within 10 minutes of picking it up each night.
Now don't get me wrong, I've LOVED Stephanie, I might have even ordered some Tasty Cakes off Amazon just to see what they were all about, and I might or might not have purchased a $10 SAMPLE of Ranger's shower gel, hoarding it, allowing only friends that love Stephanie to use it as hand soap......but.....
I don't even think the same person wrote this whole book. I think Janet zipped off a few scenes and an outline and gave it to some unimaginative intern to fill in the blanks. The antics have gone from outrageously funny, laugh out loud and scare the dogs to downright stupid.
I know how I would save the books:
Stephanie needs to cut both Joe and Ranger loose. Joe needs to get married to a blonde bombshell and Steph needs to loose her mind and rip her jeans just one last time, in the bushes outside the church trying to see in the windows. Ranger needs to become a phantom dream, and she needs to concentrate capturing interesting and outrageous skips, bring back the good supporting character, like Sally Sweet ( who might be a suit now), and Mooner. Grandma is getting on in years, but she's got plenty of spunk left....
I think you get my drift....
