SPOILER ALERT: DO NOT READ IF YOU HAVE NOT READ THE EARLIER BOOKS IN THE ‘FULL’ SERIES AND ARE PLANNING ON IT
“Full Scoop” is the latest novel in the ‘Full’ series written by Janet Evanovich and Charlotte Hughes. I finished it last week but have not had a chance to write my review. This novel still featured Max Holt and Jamie Swift, like “Full Bloom” did, but once again did not revolve around the two characters. The main character in “Full Scoop” is a pediatrician named Maggie Davenport. When her ex escapes from prison she knows that she is in danger along with her thirteen year old daughter, Mel. The FBI send an agent to protect the two and Zack Madden soon finds himself caring a little too much about Maggie and Mel.
The relationship between Jamie and Maggie goes way back and Max does everything in his power to ensure Maggie and Mel will remain safe. Jamie and Max are trying to get pregnant in this book and loveable Fleas is still around.
I have to say, I was rather disappointed in this book but at the same time, I’m not surprised. When I was reading “Full Bloom” where Max and Jamie were secondary characters I figured that they were no longer going to be in the spotlight with this series. At the same time, I was frustrated that the books are still lumped into the ‘Full’ series without the same main characters. When Diesel was introduced to the Stephanie Plum novels, Evanovich made a new series. Besides the ‘Between the Numbers’ books, there are also “Wicked Appetite” and “Wicked Business”. I don’t know why in a series where Jamie Swift and Max Holt are supposed to be the main characters they end up only being the main characters in three out of six books! This series is a fun read, but it certainly is no Stephanie Plum series.
