Life in Marblehead has had a pleasant predictability, until Diesel arrives. Rumor has it that a collection of priceless ancient relics representing the Seven Deadly Sins have made their way to Boston’s North Shore. 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.
On the story...
I didn't enjoy this one at all. Of course Lizzie goes her whole life without knowing she's special and two guys show up on her doorstep ready to tell her and needing her help. Everything was just flat. The characters were silly and uninteresting. They did things that made no sense and I felt like I was in the middle of a slap stick comedy routine. The end made the entire book feel like nothing but contrived filler. I noticed similarities to Stephanie Plum characters which made these characters feel like substandard copies.
On the narrator...
I'm not really a fan of Lorelei King. I find her voice too mature and smoky for these characters.
I thought this book was a waste of my time and I'll skip the rest of this series.
