50 in 2013: Takedown Twenty by Janet Evanovich

In case you’ve been wondering where the book reviews have been, they’ve been piling up. I’ve been on a reading binge, but not on a review-writing binge. So they’ll be coming the next few weeks.

Since arriving on Broward’s Rock, Shell has caused quite a stir. Wrecking marriages, having affairs, threatening blackmail…the young beauty has been busy. Some…
