Partnered with pastry chef Lizzie Tucker, Diesel bullies and charms his way through historic Salem to track them down—and his criminal mastermind cousin Gerewulf Grimorie. The black-haired, black-hearted Wulf is on the hunt for the relic representing gluttony. Caught in a race against time, Diesel and Lizzie soon find out that more isn’t always better, as they battle Wulf and the first of the deadly sins. With delectable characters and non-stop thrills that have made Janet Evanovich a household name, Wicked Appetite will leave you hungry for more.

Although there are all the required wacky details and snarky comments I have come to expect from Evanovich, this one just seemed juvenile to me. There was none of the sharp Plum dialogue in this one. I loved Diesel when he appeared in the Between the Plums series, but for him to carry a whole book without Stephanie just fell a little flat. It took me days to finish this one instead of hours. It is probably a must read for any Evanovich fan though. I hope the series will develop a bit better in the future. This one felt a little "phoned in".
