Wicked Business, by Janet Evanovich

In the middle of all the murder/violence of the reading I'm doing right now, this was a relief!  Evanovich's lighter touch is greatly appreciated.  As with many of her books, I found myself laughing aloud through descriptions of characters, plot twists, and conversations.

This, the second book in the Lizzy and Diesel series, picks up where Evanovich left off.  Lizzy, who inherited her aunt's home in Salem, is a pastry chef in a local bakery.  Diesel (also from Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series) needs Lizzy's help as he attempts to save the world from his cousin Wolf's attempts to collect seven stones representing the deadly sins. 

In addition to some light-hearted entertainment, readers will also have the opportunity to explore Salem, Massachusetts and the surrounding area as Lizzy, Diesel, Wolf and their minions race to find the stones. 

Although the book is written for an adult audience, I would recommend it to mature teens.  (It is not more explicit than many of the supernatural/paranormal romance books and I value the humorous take on the topic.)
