3+ out of 5 stars to Visions of Sugar Plums, the first cross-over book between Stephanie Plum and Diesel, written in 2002 by Janet Evanovich. As part of a marketing approach to launching a new series, this book places Stephanie in a most unusual place right around Christmastime. As she’s trying to get her life on track, a man materializes in her apartment. She can’t figure out how he got in and starts wondering if he’s a vision or a ghost. It’s Diesel… a very hot man… just what she needs, a third one in her life… and he desperately needs her help. Convinced she’s losing her mind, Stephanie tries to ignore him but ultimately realizes the only way to lose him, is to help him find the toy maker who has disappeared right before Christmas. Suddenly, she freaks out when she thinks he means Santa Claus! A very cute story, full of the normal charm in Evanovich’s books… it’s a good laugh. Don’t take it too seriously and enjoy these in between books for exactly what they are – humor, romance and a bit of mystery!
