Stephanie Plum faces the toughest puzzle of her career in the twenty-fifth entry in Janet Evanovich's #1 New York Times-bestselling series. There's nothing like a good deli, and the Red River Deli in Trenton is one of the best. World-famous for its pastrami, cole slaw, and for its disappearing managers. Over the last month, three have vanished from the face of the earth, and the only clue in each case is one shoe that's been left behind. The police are baffled. Lula is convinced that it's a case of alien abduction. Whatever it is, they'd better figure out what's going on before they lose their new manager, Ms. Stephanie Plum.

Silly but fun & a few laugh out loud moments. I hope she goes after Grandma in the next book.

Hard to read a book when all the main characters are trash and you don't really care what happens to any of them. Janet's mind is in the gutter. Will not bother to try any more of her stuff.

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.

The Plum books are never meant to be high literature. They are exactly what they are meant to be: fast, fun and pretty mindless entertainment with characters we've come to know.

The premise of 'Look Alive Twenty-Five' is even wackier than usual but what stood out is what's missing: Stephanie's beleaguered Mom and her adorably crazy-wise Grandma.

I laughed with the ketchup/fryer scene. So Stephanie/Lulu.

It seems like the author is trying to make Stephanie less of a ditz and more of a competent professional. She's more detective than bounty hunter in this book. I missed Grandma, but she's there at the end. :)

For the most part I'm a fairly serious reader, but when there's a new "Stephanie adventure," whatever book I'm in the middle of gets chucked aside w/out hesitation!
There was one slight disappointment for me, and that is that Grandma Mazur isn't part of the story, but other than that, I give it 5 stars!

Unlike some of the earlier works in this series - there was a plot. But there was also some sadness. Stephanie P. - the heroine - is in love with 2 men. While both are there when she is in trouble, neither wants to get married. I missed her grandmother popping in and out.

While I finished reading it...….I didn't enjoy it at all!

Standard Evanovich fare with Stephanie & Lula makes for a quick, light-hearted read. The typical cast of characters is here, with a small appearance from Wulf (from the Lizzy & Diesel series) to bring in a hint of the paranormal. While it reads like all the others, there are a few standards tropes she doesn't employ this time around. If you've liked the others, you'll probably enjoy this one as well, but if you're looking for any kind of resolution or progress to Stephanie's life, forget it.
