Grandma Mazur is a widow...again. This time her marriage lasted a whole 45 minutes. The unlucky groom was one Jimmy Rosolli, local gangster, lothario (senior division) and heart attack waiting to happen...well, the waiting's over. It's a sad day, but if she can't have Jimmy at least Grandma can have all the attention she wants as the dutiful widow. But some kinds of attention are not welcomed, particularly when Jimmy's former "business partners" are convinced that his widow is keeping the keys to their financial success for herself. As someone who has spent an entire career finding bad guys, a set of missing keys should be no challenge for Stephanie Plum. Problem is, the facts are as twisted as a boardwalk pretzel with mustard.

Always a quick read with lots of humor. Don't read it at night, it will make you hungry they seem to always be eating a lot of "good" stuff. Wondering what happens at 27.

Rex must be the oldest hamster on the planet! This isn't great literature, folks, but it is one of the better Stephanie Plum reads of recent years. Grandma Mazur is the star of this one. Her mobster new husband dies 45 minutes after the "I do" and his compatriots are convinced that he left Grandma M the "keys". Stephanie will do anything to protect her grandma from the mobsters and the threat of horrible death if she doesn't produce the mysterious keys. The usual hilarity ensues. Good, clean fun.

Enjoyed this book very much. Made me laugh as usual! But this time the characters were also growing and maturing. Asking themselves where they were going in life. Left me wondering what she has planned for book 27!

This was a tricky case for Stephanie because she was trying to save her grandmother. There were a lot of twists and turns and unexpected things happened. Overall, I enjoyed this one, as much as the others in this series.

A quick and enjoyable read. Twisted Twenty-Six is the Twenty-sixth book in the Stephanie Plum series. The characters are lots of fun and every book in the series is full of laughs and very entertaining. You could pick up any one of the books in the series and find great entertainment.

I wasn't sure what to expect from this book as the series has become somewhat formulaic, but I was pleasantly surprised as it turns out to be a fairly decent book. I would rate it about 3.75 as there are some interesting bits that delve a little more into the cast of supporting characters. Grandma plays a significant role, with some actual words of wisdom. Stephanie's mother and father actually talk and have roles beyond ironing and TV watching. Stephanie does some soul searching but nothing is decided and the search for the keys plays a prominent mystery role that leads readers to book number 27. There are some laughs and smiles which are always fun. Quick and easy read.

Quick read, but not a bad one.

I had about given up on the Stephanie Plum series. It seemed she was getting dumber and dumber and Lula was so totally outrageous, she seemed like someone from a comic book and Grandma Mazur, well she seemed ready for the home for patients with dementia. Then this book! As a commenter said below, our girl is growing up! Stephanie seems to be looking more at her life and her life choices. Lula actually had some wise things to say. And Grandma Mazur, well she must have started taking the vitamins that are supposed to sharpen your mind because she had some profound things to say! And the story was a good one....actually made sense and was tense and a little frightening at times. I hope the author has decided to continue these "updates" the Stephanie Plum books. I was so exasperated and unhappy with the Stephanie Plum books, I almost didn't get this one to read. But glad I did. And look forward to the next one.

One last thing. Stephanie's mother stops being a total doormat and does a really surprising thing in the middle of the book.

Our little girl is growing up! With the chaos of 'Twisted Twenty-Six', Stephanie Plum realizes her life is unfulfilling. She just doesn't know how to change it or what she wants.

There were quite a few profound statements by Grandma Mazur in 'Twisted Twenty-Six' in addition to the sass we know well. Then there's Lulu with her own brand of profundity: "Sometimes I find human nature to be real disappointing," Lulu said. "I guess that's why God made metallic extensions and pink hair dye. Sometimes you gotta compensate."

It appears with the announcement of the title of the next book at the end of 'Twisted Twenty-Six' that Stephanie might be moving forward, at least that's what I think the absence of a numbered title might mean! I hope so. As entertaining as she had been all these years, it IS time for our little girl to grow up!
