Well darling folks- it’s WEEK 3 of A Month of Faves! It seems like yesterday that Tanya @ Girlxoxo was emailing around and looking for hosts for this month!
I’ve had the best time “meeting” new bloggers and interacting with ya’ll! I can’t wait to see what Girlxoxo and Estella’s Revenge (creator and host of #amonthoffaves) have come up with next! Today’s linkup is here (sorry I’m late- internet probs this weekend!)
So, I’m cheating. I’m not talking about just one book today. I’m actually pitting 2 series against each other. But that’s ok- because I’m a grown ass woman and I can do what I want.
So, we’ll be chatting about The Fox and O’Hare series (Janet Evanovinch’s latest) versus The Stephanie Plum series (Janet’s oldest)…
(I feel like there should be an announcer screaming MORTAL KOMBAT like in the game!)
Meet The Fox and O’Hare series. Kate O’Hare is a kick butt FBI agent on the search for a con man named Nicholas Fox who has eluded her time and time again. When she finally captures him, the FBI has an interesting proposition- team up to flush out some major criminals. So they do. And the antics are fun and the chemistry is sizzling.
What I really like about the series- it’s fun. Light. Cute. But the best thing- the interaction between Kate and Nick. Reminds me of the old days of Joe and Stephanie… Except it’s better. Kate is take charge, smart, funny, and knows how to work a gun. She is “woman hear me roar”. I dig that.
When Stephanie first started out being a bounty hunter- she was untrained. It was either become a bounty hunter or move in with her parents. And the chemistry between her and Joe was something else. They had a past- and it was fun and fresh for awhile. Now, it’s just ok. It’s draggy at times and it’s like Evanovich doesn’t know what to do with the folks anymore.
So, readers- have you read either of the series? Do you have a preference? Are you Team Cupcake or Team Babe for the Stephanie Plum series? Do you think that Kate and Stephanie could be friends if they met each other in book life? What about Nick, Joe and Ranger? Should Janet have a Fox & O’Hare/Plum meet-up?
And now- it’s time to LINK UP!

Happy Reading and Bookishly Yours,
