Wicked Charms: A Lizzy and Diesel Novel by Janet Evanovich, Phoef Sutton

Lizzy is helping Diesel find all the pieces of a old, old coin.  With the coin, a map, and a stone, they will find the treasure.  Sounds easy, but it's not...

Bantam and Net Galley allowed me to read this book for review (thank you).  It is being published today, so you can find a copy at your local bookstore now.

I've enjoyed Janet Evanovich's stories in the past but hadn't noticed this series until now.  I had to try it to see if it was as much fun:  it is!

Lizzy can feel magic.  She doesn't think it's the greatest skill and believes she's low profile, but she's wrong.  A finder can be worth a lot to a seeker.  Especially if the seeker is driven by greed.  It's a good thing she has Diesel around.  He's a magical being that might be a bit demon but he's got an earthly body (ooh la la) and they occasionally share the same bed.  Of course, his cousin, Wulf, is searching for the same coin that Diesel is, so there is some competition there.

Lizzy gets in more trouble than there's salt in a saltshaker.  Sometimes she saves herself, sometimes her friends save her.  But when they kidnap Gramps, a friend of hers, she's willing to go the extra mile to get him back.

The story is bit silly.  You have pirates, muscle men, a crazy multimillionaire, a curse from the past and more.  My favorite part of the book is the last line.  You know the next book will be a corker, too.
