I have always been a fan the Stevanie Plum novels but this book is not worth trying to read.

It is slick and funny in typical Evanovich style.. While I enjoy Stephanie Plum, this one is a bit surreal for me as I don't 'do' fantasy very much unless it's a classic. Lewis Carroll, C.S Lewis, Roald Dahl and the more recent addition, J.K. Rowling immediately spring to mind. There's a passing resemblance to the NZ TV series The Almighty Johnsons. In other words 'too'..but...this too would work in the fantasy genre as a TV series.I might even watch it.

This is another fun packed, crazy novel with all the elements that make Evanovich so popular.

I enjoy Janet Evanovich as a rule. I was excited to see a new character as the theme of the book and the writing is classic Janet. The story was getting a little far fetched for me. The thing with Stephanie Plum is that while she is a character of extremes there are so many aspects of her personality that I can relate to. Whereas Lizzy, Diesel and the seven stones (representing the seven deadly sins) are just pure fantasy. Still a good no brainer read but not my favourite Janet Evanovich book.

I loved loved loved this book!!! This series is going to be so good! I really enjoyed that she used main characters from her "In Between Numbers" series. It was hilarious in only Evanovich fashion to point of laughing out loud. I can't wait for the next one!!

This book was pretty fun but not as good as the Stephanie Plum series. I've just started reading the second book, so I might like it better now that the characters are developing.

Sweet, very little sizzle. Like Stephanie a lot. Didn't expect fantasy and magic. Not my cup of tea.

Although the characters aren't as instantly hilarious as in the Stephanie Plum series, the plot is still snappy and fun. I also like that it does have more of a mystery / fantasy element.

I liked Diesel & Lizzie although Lizzie is more sweet with less sizzle than Stephanie. Carl the monkey was here, which was fantastic. I was really disappointed that there was a *magic* reason Lizzie & Diesel couldn't get together (as opposed to an indecision problem with Stephanie). I just went *sigh* when I found that out. So a bit *forever to be unrealized* love, but still enjoyable and I will read sequels. Villain's name a bit too close to villain's name from Harry Potter, but no other similarity.

Hilarious and very entertaining. The dialogue is fun and snappy. The plot is just nuts, in a good way, but what did you expect with an organization called BUM, a finger-flipping monkey and cat with a glass-eye. This is a supernatural/romantic/comedy. Do not confuse it with the Stephanie Plum writing. This has a totally different feel to it and I for one really like it and am looking forward to more sin stones to recover.

I am fond of Evanovich's novels, having read her Stephanie Plum Series and Metro Girl. Wicked Appetite was a nice addition to her works, offering a light, fast paced and comedic look into the life of Lizzie Tucker. A fantasy element, unlike that in Evanovich's other novels, adds an interesting twist to the plot. You can't help but fall in love with Lizzie and her crazy counterparts, but I find the characters lackluster in comparison to the larger than life personalities of Stephanie Plum and Lula. Perhaps the sequel, set to be released next year, will focus more on character development, and in turn, help Lizzie reach the magnitude that Stephanie Plum has.

I liked this more than I thought i would. The sequel is due to be published in June2012. Seems like along wait!

I thought the book was cute and Diesel is starting to grow on me (he's no Ranger).....I listened to this one on CD and although I love the reader, I think they should have used someone other than Lorelei King as she is the voice of Stephanie not Lizzy.
