Wicked Charms by Janet Evanovich
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Glo has a new boyfriend and he is taking Glo and Lizzy on an after-hours tour of Salem’s Pirate Museum. What starts out as something innocent turns into a treasure hunt when Lizzy uncovers the mummified remains of a bootlegger who had found and re-hid a real pirate’s treasure. Lizzy would just like to continue her life and maybe get to know the coroner, Theodore Nergal, who came to the scene. That doesn’t look like a possibility when Diesel interrupts their dinner and tells Lizzy that they have been enlisted to find the hidden treasure and hopefully the Stone of Avarice. Of course Lizzy and Diesel are not the only people who want to find the treasure. Wulf appears to be along for the hunt and a demon or two might also be in the mix. Can Lizzy and her crazy friends outwit the minions of hell? Does Lizzy really believe there are minions of hell?
Wicked Charms is the third book in the Lizzy & Diesel series. Evanovich does a great job including background information discovered in the first two books so that readers who stumble across this book can read it properly, yet for those of us who started at the beginning … the review is not so much to be a turn off. This pirate adventure will keep the reader on their toes and those who wanted Glo and Broom to have a deeper roll to play will be pleasantly surprised. I didn’t have as much eye rolling with this book as the first two, yet I was still turning page after page to discover the next twist. A fun read that was quickly finished and I’m sure readers will be looking for more books to fill the void.
