Re: What are you reading?

I've heard several people gush over Evanovich's Plum series, so I tried
her 'Visions of Sugar Plums' last Cmas. Hopefully her regular series is
better than her Cmas story, because I really didn't like her style. I'm
a Kinsey Milhone addict. Anyone know when "R is for......" is coming
out? And what will the R be for? Any guesses, bets?
