To the Nines (Stephanie Plum #9)
Popular Answered Questions
Stephanie finds herself knee-deep in body guards, Vegas slot machines, pooping dogs and slinging around ding-dongs.
Morelli was invigorated by sex. An orgasm for Morelli was like taking a vitamin pill. The more orgasms he had, the sharper he got. I’m the opposite. For me, an orgasm is like a shot of Valium. A night with Morelli and the next morning I’m a big contented cow.<./i> ...more
I also was caught between liking and getting really bored of the whole Ranger/Morelli think. I don't think she should have her cake and eat it too and I think the character is built to believe that too but it's ...more
We've read all the author's books about Trenton-based bounty hunter Plum, and had feared we were tired of them when in "Seven" and "Eight" the stories seemed weak and the humor forced. "Nines" corrects that with a real pleaser -- plenty of natural humor, an almost gripping plot putting Steph in real danger, and lots of sexual tension with Ranger and Morelli. The other regulars -- Bob the dog, Grandma Mazur, Vinny, the parents, sister Valerie (and f ...more
The plot is actually interesting. A man who works for a slot-machine-part manufacturer goes missing. He is in the U.S. on a visa bond, which Vinnie wrote, so Stephanie has to get him back. She gets to learn how slot-machine parts are made AND go to Vegas, which involves Lula going through ...more
I really did not think that these books could get any funnier, but this would almost killed me. I'm not sure if I read this when I was sleep deprived (I did) or if it's really just that funny (it is) but I could not contain my laughter for very long. Every part of this book, the humor, the mystery, and the romance, came together perfectly to make a seriously fabulous book.
This book had some of the funniest material I've seen in a book. When Lula wasn't talking about h ...more
Morelli, Ranger, and "His Merry Men" are all once again trying to keep Stephanie safe. After hunting down a Visa skip, Stephanie becomes the target of a psychopathic (or is it psychotic?)cyber geek. The game is on and Stephanie is the prize. He is hunting her down and takes two of the people closest to her as hostages. She has to outwit him in order to save them all. Let me just tell you - the hostage thing had me peeing myself.. ...more
That said, it was totally predictable. Admittedly, I've read this before, but not in several years, and I remembered literally nothing about the plot. Still, I was able to work out who the villain was at least a hundred and ...more
This one wasn't as funny as the previous ones and neither was the mystery too great. A little disappointed but I'll continue the series anyway.
And, uh no one in India is named "Apusenja" , you could have done a bit research Ms. Evanovich and next time you want an Indian name for your book you have my permission to use mine. ;)
This book served this purpose well. There were numerous laugh-out-loud moments for me and they were all hilarious. I must have looked like an idiot when I bursted out laughing while reading the book on the subway, but some things were just too funny to hold back. Some key moments for me:
- Stephanie and gang travelling to Las Vegas and got searched at the airport security
- Lula's superm ...more
Stephanie and Ranger soon learn that Singh's disappearance is tied to random events and people. Stephanie investigates Singh's place of employment, TriBro. The Cone brothers, Andrew, Bart, and Clyde run the establishment. Soon, Stephanie begins receiving death threats along with red a ...more
I could have read any one of her Stephanie Plum series, and the individual book would have been enjoyable. But, at the time of this review, she has seventeen books in the series. Stephani ...more
The mystery surrounding the missing person in this book isn't so much who did it - sorry Janet, that was a bit obvious - but how/why. It took 'til at least three quarters of the way through and memories of some wierd film whose name I can't remember to work that one out. The villan is pretty creepy though and the last bit ... urgh! I think that in terms of sense of menace this is only beaten by the first one.
However, we are talking Stephanie Plum and the gang so ...more
This is an hilarious return to form. Stephanie is searching for a guy who is nearing the end of his visa and gets caught up in a weird cat and mouse game. The cutting between very broad comedy and tense thriller is crucial here as Stephanie faces more than the usual amount of peril. There's also a very funny trip to Vegas with Lula and Connie (who needs to get out from behind her desk more) which seems to be longer than it needs to be, but is still a great read on its own. Fortunately for Stepha...more
In this latest installment, less-than-adequate bounty hunter Stephanie Plum has to track down an elusive Visa bond jumper, an immigrant who doesn't seem content with upcoming arranged marriage. As always, there's a few other greasy contenders for Plum's time, but, in the end she always gets her man or woman.
The old formula that has worked for the last 8 books in the series is still working here. It's a funny, easy light h ...more

The first was from Joe. “Hey, Cupcake.” That was it. That was the whole message.
The second was from Ranger. “Yo.” Ranger made Joe look like a chatterbox.”
