Often one of the really fun parts of reading a book series is the extra books–Christmas or Halloween or side- or back-story books. It was pure coincidence that I reached Visions of Sugar Plums in the Stephanie Plum series during Christmas week! A delightful coincidence? “Dam* Skippy”–as Lula would say. Grandma Mazur dating a Senior Citizen Stud Muffin? Perfect sis Valerie a mess? A Ranger-like angel known as Diesel hanging out with Stephanie? “Babe….” How could pass up a Christmas like this! Throw in Randy Briggs–one of my favorite Plum FTAs [failure to appear in court–the guys she tracks down as a bounty hunter], the ever loving Joe Marelli, a villain named “Ring” and an elf cookie riot and you’ve got a pleasant way to de-stress after the too-crowded, too-picked over Mall.
