From Publishers' Weekly:

In this tart and hilarious "between-the-numbers" Stephanie Plum novel from bestseller Evanovich (Twelve Sharp), the Jersey bond enforcement agent, who already has two guys in her life (cop Joe Morelli and bounty hunter Ranger), reconnects with Diesel, a third heartthrob. Diesel offers Stephanie a deal: if he lets her find Annie Hart, a relationship coach who's become a big-ticket bond on Stephanie's Most Wanted List after fleeing a charge for a robbery she didn't commit, then Stephanie can do Annie a big favor by playing Cupid for a number of Annie's lovelorn clients, including a shy butcher, a desperate vet, an overworked single mom, a 30-something virgin and the marriage-phobic fellow who just happens to be Stephanie's pregnant sister's boyfriend. Diesel and Stephanie's short but sweet adventure ends on a teasing note that will leave fans hungry for the next juicy Plum-a-thon. (Jan.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved

From Library Journal:

Plum Lovin' is the Valentine's Day entry in the novella series "Between-the-Numbers," all featuring beloved bounty hunter Stephanie Plum. This time, she works with the elusive and possibly magical Diesel, who needs to find relationship expert Annie Hart before her estranged husband does. The husband is, like Diesel and Annie, an "unmentionable"; his power is to give people horrendous cases of excruciatingly itchy hives. Annie is sort of the love version of the fairy godmother and is voiced in a kind of berserk homage to Billie Burke in The Wizard of Oz. Can Stephanie take Annie's place as matchmaker? She and Diesel work on that while looking for the bad guy. The real issue: Will commitment-phobe Stephanie end up with a third candidate for true love? With each new Stephanie Plum book, narrator Lorelei King continues to improve upon perfection in her reading. Her sense of pacing, a key element in books with so much humor, is right on the mark; every voice is distinctive and unique. Recommended for all public libraries.
