Metro Girl by Janet Evanovich

Too many coincidences. Unbelievable scrapes and escapes. Even the characters can’t believe what’s happening. And through it all, loads of fun to read.


“I’m awake, right? This is real?”

After being put off by the title for years, I finally decided to read this book when I spotted it at a sale. No way I could like it anywhere near as much as Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum series. Wrong. Not only were there plenty of laughs, but more suspense than seemed possible given the improbable goings-on. The last half of the book is a straight through read without breaks. The first book in the Alexandra Barnaby series.

Evanovich began this series a decade ago and, even though I avidly read her Stephanie Plum novels, I was rather put off by the title Metro Girl. When I saw it on the dollar table though, I couldn’t resist picking it up after all. Then it lounged around near the bottom of the TBR list until I happened upon a couple of good reviews for it.

“You’re getting better at lying,” Hooker said, when we were belted into the Porsche. “In fact, you were frighteningly convincing.”


So far I am enjoying this book with plenty of chuckles. I doubt I’ll end up liking it as much as I do Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum series, but I’ll probably go on to read the next one in this series.
