Carlos Manoso, street name Ranger, is caught on video just minutes before the crime occurs. He's at the scene, he's with the victim, and he's the number-one suspect. Ranger is f

Oh, Morelli... I just needed to express that. I was only going to give this book four stars until that decision was swayed in the end by said individual. And I'll add that I really don't think I would mind it much if a muscular Italian Jersey cop called me "cupcake"...

Mooner, Ranger, homicidal maniacs, a Rollswagon, dog poo, a dead guy in a lawn chair, the nemesis from hell, a Star Trek party and eccentric Grandma Mazur all make up my favorite Stephanie Plum novel so far! Lots of laugh-out-loud moments and great secondary characters.

Janet Evanovich and her Stephanie Plum series is brilliant. Totally hilarious and worth its weight in gold.

Stephanie Plum, a bounty hunter with attitude and an interesting fashion sense runs around with her sidekick Lula in attempt to catch and haul in criminals that have missed their court date.

Working for Vinnie, is interesting to say the least. Vinnie is anything but vanilla. His lifestyle and preference in partners although highly abnormal by society’s standards, I find intriguing and laugh...more

Mystery. Stephanie Plum! Being tailed. Again! Car on fire. Again! Has an unwelcome houseguest. Again! I was warned these books get predictable, but I...didn't think it'd be this bad? Okay, okay, I'm shaking it off.

This here's the book where Ranger's wanted for questioning in connection to a fire and also a murder and has Stephanie doing stakeouts for him. During the course of the investigation, she picks up a dog and a roommate, and then a couple more roommates. Ranger's pretty frisky here. Mor...more

After reading the paperbacks in order, I've recently begun reading these books in their unabridged audiobook form in reverse order. I started with #8 (Hard Eight), recently finished up #7 (Seven Up) and the latest listen has been Hot Six. Reading these backwards has been an eye-opening experience and I'm now able to pinpoint exactly where things began to become repetitive for me as a reader (the very beginning of book #7, for those interested).

Hot Six has all of the wit and the fun its two follo...more

Stephanie Plum is back in Hot Six with all of the humor and bad luck her readers have come to expect. This book is action-packed and filled with eccentric characters, some returning and some new to the series. I thoroughly enjoyed the previous five books in this series, but this one may be my favorite so far.

Stephanie Plum, bounty hunter not so extraordinaire, is told by her cousin and boss, Vinnie, that he has a bond jumper for her to locate. When Stephanie finds that it is former Special Force...more

My Review: Hot Six is another great audiobook by Janet Evanovich. Stephanie Plum is one hell of a bounty hunter… well, sometimes. She’s hilarious and constantly surrounded by drama. This time it’s different though, she’s expected to bring in her friend and fellow bounty hunter, Ranger. Yup, same Ranger that has given her hot flashes in the past.

Stephanie ends up with a spastic dog, Bob, that’s scared to be alone and an eating disorder...more

I think I'm going to give up on the series after reading the first 6 books. I like the fast paced story line and I understand it's not the type of book to have much character development, and I really don't mind that but what I mostly can't stand are love triangles that do not get resolved within a book or so, and I am afraid this series looks like it's going to be one loooooong lasting love triangle (judging by the summary of book 18 that just came out). Another thing I can't stand is that Step...more

I had to set this book aside at first, as I had slightly o.d. on Stephanie Plum. I no longer found her antics humorous, I simply found them stupid. As these books have become a favorite guilty pleasure, I couldn't have them ruined. After a two week hiatous, I found my eyes wandering over to the coffee table, where "Hot Six" rested upon the top of my TBR pile, mocking me, wispering about Ranger in the wind, Morelli in heat, so on and so forth. Needless to say, I caved and read it in one setting....more

Another Stephanie PLum book, another day. In this book we get the answer to that little cliff hanger from the last book almost immediately (thank goodness)! But I'm still feeling a little bit of the ick factor as far and Stephanie's involvement with Joe and Ranger. Although I have a preference, I could live with either. I could live with both at the same time (yum) or I could live with her seeing them both, but I can't live with her being jealous over Joe and fooling around with Ranger.

The myste...more

I've liked every single one of the books in this series, but this one was the best so far. There were a couple good new characters but the best on might be Bob the dog. There is no less than three instances where i actually laughed out loud reading some of the parts in this book involving Bob. A friend asks Stephanie to watch his dog, but before it's too late she realizes he is leaving him for good. So Stephanie with the help of her friends watch this crotch sniffing canine. The plot of the stor...more

Stephanie Plum has grown up with half the cops and crooks in Trenton, which compensates for her poor aim with a gun, bad luck with cars and soft-hearted approach to her job (one bail jumper evades her four times). The police are after her mentor, the mysterious Ranger, wanted for killing drug and gun dealer Homer Ramos. Claiming he's innocent, Ranger persuades Steph to help him keep an eye on the Ramos clan. Steph teams up with her lover, vice cop Joe Morelli, then strikes out on her own when sh...more

I went off Janet Evanovich and her sassy bounty-hunter heroine Stephanie Plum for a while, because I thought I detected the emergence of the dreaded LOVE TRIANGLE erupting between Stephanie and the two eligible bachelors around town, Joe Morelli (cop) and Ranger (fellow bounty hunter and general entrepreneur), at the end of “High Five”. And I really hate love triangles, I mean I REALLY hate them. They go on forever, they can’t possible have a happy ending, there’s way too much useless inner turm...more

I'm working my way through the series, finished this one last Friday and I'm already half way through the next one, Seven Up. This one had me laughing so much I ended up telling my kids about 60 percent of the story because they'd hear me laugh and want to know what was so funny. So I'd have to explain the main character, a tiny bit of the back story and then what was making me giggle in the scene. Most of the time they laughed too. (Always better when they do that than when they give you frozen...more

This was the first Stephanie Plum novel I read. You can start in the middle of the series, but it's so much more fun beginning with #1.

Stephanie Plum is perhaps the most inept bounty hunter ever, but she manages to capture most of the FTA's assigned to her. Probably because she's got the help of Ranger, the sexiest, most successful bounty hunter ever. When things go wrong, and they always do, she can count on her sometimes boyfriend, Joe Morelli, to keep her out of jail.

With each successive no...more

Book six and I still suck at speaking jersey.

Stephanie still hasn't learned to lock her car doors..

A Rollswagan seems to be a big deal this book. Not knowing what that is, I google image searched it. Found this:

And then the car, or I think this is what she is driving



Is sex with animals really this popular in Jersey? Is this an unknown to me stereotype? Or just a really poor ongoing joke? Every book so far talks about sex with a duck, dogs, or a goat or some random animal and it's...more

Cars exploding, strange people breaking into her apartment, and she's being followed by two goons in a minivan... just another day in the life of Stephanie Plum... Jersey Girl/Bounty Hunter...

Great books - laugh out loud funny... very entertaining!!!

In this book, her other love interest, Ranger, is accused of murdering a mob boss'ss son and Vinnie wants Steph to bring Ranger in. As if!

Meanwhile she talks a skip off a bridge with the arguement that jumping was a bad way to go because it would ru...more

What's the difference between a formula and an in-joke? I suspect it's merely whether or not they still make you laugh, so I'm still OK with this series. Yes, Stephanie really should find time for some more target practice, get over her gun-phobia, fit some proper locks on her door and learn to regulate her spending so she's not always desperate for money but hey guys this is fiction - you know, made-up stuff, and, what is more, made-up stuff that isn't taking itself too seriously. So although I...more

Hot Six - G
Evanovich, Janet - 6th in series

Sexual temptation, homicidal maniacs, car crashes and doughnut addiction are all in a day's work for Stephanie Plum. Now there's another male in her life. He's big, he's orange, and he howls when he's left alone. But nothing could prepare her for the disaster she faces when Grandma Mazur moves in.

The series continues to be fun.

So funny. I always start off scoffing at Evanovich's formula writing but dang it...I get sucked in every time.

Why is it so hard for Stephanie to stay out of major, life threatening trouble? Stephanie is off on more bounty hunter jobs; one is to find a wife abuser who has skipped out on court appearing and he is not willing to cooperate in any way shape or form with Stephanie. Soon he is threatening her life and is evading her in every way possible. Will she ever catch him and not get hurt in the mean time? Also, she has heard shocking news...Ranger is being looked for, but not in a seeking his services...more

It's Plum time again as Stephanie hits the books for Hot Six, the Sixth book of course in the series. Like the previous ones, I think what attracts readers is the amount of fun trouble and ideas that Stephanie has and gets up too, I love the humour in it. In Hot Six , the big bucks is on Ranger and since he is like the bounty hunter God and Stephanie knows there is no way he is going to turn himself in or let himself be captured she passes this one on to Joyce which of course never goes to well...more

Book 5 ends with a killer ending, Stephanie decided she will invite a guy over, her choice between Ranger and Morelli. She got out her slinky black dress and called him but it ends there, what a killer so I bought the next book right away, i just needed to find out. I didn't think that it was Ranger but still I wanted to know.

Grandma Mazur also decided to room with Stephanie for a few days since the taser accident she did on Stephanie's wife. She is also left to dog sit when she asked a cop to...more

Another great Stephanie Plum, Bounty Hunter book.

In Hot Six, Stephanie unwillingly takes on the task of joining forces with Morelli to find Ranger (who is Stephanie's friend and mentor) as he has failed to appear for his court date and is now FTA.

Ranger was caught on tape just minutes before a building goes up in flames and there is an associated murder of a local drug dealer and son of a Trenton mobster in the burned down building.

There is also the added stress of Grandma Mazur moving in with S...more

So Ranger really starts to turn up the heat on Stephanie and his feelings (lust or more substantive) as she helps him prove his innocence in a murder investigation. I like the introduction of Bob the dog . . . another wacky character. Joyce continues to instill frustration and rage within me--can't someone put a hit on her (not that I condone violence). There is a proposal at the end of the book that seems drivin by sex deprivation (Joe's beeper and Grandma Moser's new roommate status for Stepha...more

"Hot Six" is appropriately titled because it certainly was quite possibly the hottest Stephanie Plum book yet. What makes this story so sizzling isn't the physical relationship Stephanie shares with her two leading men, but the anticipation of something physical. Evanovich has mastered the ability to turn a simple 2 minute work/information meeting into a scene where I'm running for a cold shower to calm myself down.

In this Stephanie Plum incarnation the mob has finally arrived and Ranger is sma...more

In the prolouge in this book we find out who Stephanie called and asked to come over. I don't want to give it away, but I was happy because it was who I wanted it to be. The story picks up 5 months later and once again, Stephanie finds herself in the middle of everything. Ranger is wanted for questioning in a murder and has a FTA out, but Stephanie refuses to pick up his case so Vinnie is forced to give it to Joyce, Stephanies nemesis. With Ranger hiding out Stephanie is forced to pick up Munson...more

Vinny, the owner of the bail bond company who is also Stephanie's cousin, wants Stephanie to bring Ranger in but she refuses. Ranger claims he is innocent and Stephanie believes him so she agrees to help him by keeping an eye on the Ramos family.
