Will the Stephanie Plum Series Continue?

It's no secret that I love the Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanovich. I first wrote about it here. Then I wrote about some read-alikes of the series. And my latest posts are of Smokin' Seventeen, Explosive Eighteen and the movie. But I was wondering if Janet was working on Nineteen, so I sent out an email to
Message: Is there a Nineteen in the works? BTW, congratulations on the movie finally being done. We've waited a long time.
All the best,
I have to say they were fantastic and sent me a reply in less than 24 hours:
Hi Angela,

Ken here, Alex's assistant.  I'm helping with the email.

Not yet.  Janet is hard at work on Wicked Business, the next Diesel/Tucker book due out on June 19.  She'll roll up her sleeves on Plum Nineteen as soon as that manuscript has been turned in.  It's slated for sometime late next fall.

*UPDATE: Stephanie Plum Notorious Nineteen Release Date (6.26.12)

There. Now we have it. I, for one, can't wait for yet another side-splitting adventure. BTW, the novel Wicked Business that Janet is working on is the second in the Lizzy and Diesel series. The first is Wicked Appetite. Here's the synopsis in case you're interested:

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.

Happy reading,


  1. I thoroughly enjoyed the earlier Stephanie Plum books but found some of the later ones just okay, if not a bit silly...Well, this new series blows "silly" out of the water. Beyond ridiculous is more like it. A shame really as Diesel's search for the Seven Deadly Sins ancient relics could have been fun. I found the heroine, Lizzie, quite boring and the narrator used an irritating voice for her. I couldn't place the accent and her speech sounded like an older person with loose dentures that kept slipping and making a slight whistle on the S sound. Luckily, her accent came and went.

    1. Oh, my. I haven't read any of her new series. I appreciate your honest evaluation. Thanks so much for stopping by.
