I've read most of the Stephanie Plum series and thought they were funny. So when I saw Janet Evanovich had teamed up with Lee Goldberg, the creator of Monk, it was interesting to me. I thought there would be quirky characters involved in amusing escapades. So I got Heist as an audio book, prepared to laugh as I tried to get my steps in. It was interesting, but more like It Takes a Thief than anything else. It was good enough that I'll get the second one in the series.
