“Wicked Appetite is a spin-off of the Stephanie Plum number series. Lizzy Tucker has inherited her Aunt Olivia's house along with her one-eyed cat, Cat #7143 by name. Gerwulf Grimoire appears at the bakery where she works looking for the charm that Olivia had inherited. Lizzy doesn't know what he's talking about and, along with her co-workers Glo and Clara, freak when he disappears in a puff of smoke. Enter Diesel, employee of Ranger in the Stephanie Plum series, another big scary guy. He informs Lizzy that he is there to protect her until the four charms are found. Add a monkey named Carl who delights in giving everyone the finger, Glo's purchase of a book of spells which she miscasts to everyone's detriment, and "Wulf's underling, Hatchet who dresses like a medieval night and you get the picture of the chaos that reigns. Amusing enough but not near as entertaining as the Stephanie Plum series.”
