2.5 stars. I started this book with a lot of hope. But ultimately, it was the same as the earlier books. This book is not great. It is more of the same, but it does have a few laugh out loud moments. I feel like I should explain where I am coming from on this series. I don’t happily or easily give this book a low rating. The Stephanie Plum series now has 19 regular novels and several “in between” novellas. The first book was published...more
It's all gotten so hackneyed. The exploding cars, the eternal tug between sexy and dangerous Joe Morelli and sexier and more dangerous Ranger, the slapstick apprehension attempts. Lula and Grandma Mazur, both of whom used to be comically eccentric, have now descended into idiocy. Really...more
All though I love the series, and this book was no less funny, I was waiting for something different. It is finally time for change, Stephanie has to finally decide who wants to have a relationship with.
I have loved this series from the start. I have read all eighteen books and I can wait to read Notorious Nineteen.
Chapter One had me laughing out loud, good thing I was home. With this series you have to carefully choose where you are going to read, because people are goi...more
3 Ho-Hum stars! Pick me Joe, pick me!!! I want you!!! Ranger can have Stephanie! Just let this end already!
A few funny moments, but it's basically the same old stuff. Unfortunately it's my need to know who Stephanie ends up with that keeps me coming back to this series. I love Joe, but now I'm starting to wonder how dumb he might be. I think he's been shot one too many times. Stephanie's not all that great and he keeps coming back for more abuse from her. He seems to like getting dumped by her a...more
No growth. No change. I don't really expect either of those things to happen, but I keep hoping.
And as much as I hate myself for admitting it, Stephanie Plum stuffing a body into a car trunk is still funny. None of the rest of the reoccuring themes are still funny, but I did laugh at that one. I'm sure it wasn't all to do with the beer. (And it won't be fun...more
Oh my God!! I finally finished. This was an exhaustive read and I had to force myself to finish. I would give this a solid 2.5 stars but I'm giving it a 3.5. That extra star is for my love of Ranger.
I have loved this series from the very beginning but sometimes you need to learn when enough is enough. I love Stephanie, Lula, Ranger and Morelli but the story isn't going anywhere. It's the same with each book.
In every book you get a rundown of each character. If you have read the series f...more
Although I read this book on the date of release (as always with an Evanovich "Plum" release!), am just now getting to post my review.
I was a bit disappointed in what I considered to be a lack of details about Grandma Mazur's under...more
I have noticed that the scenes that I dislike most are ones with Lula in them. So if you really love her it may be better for you. But unfortunately for me she always seems to be with Stephanie; causing problems where there were...more
Enough already. It is getting tiresome. It is time for Stephanie to either fish or cut bait and pick either Ranger or Morelli. Seriously, no guy worth his salt would put up with his girlfriend, the women he loves, being tempted and wooed by a man who is quite possibly the sexiest man on the planet. I mean, why settle on Morelli when you could have Ranger? Make a decision!!!!!!!
Sure, this story was one of the better ones in recent history. Yes, the little sorry lines were exper...more
New Jersey bounty hunter Stephanie Plum is certain of three truths: People don’t just vanish into thin air. Never anger old people. And don’t do what Tiki tells you to do. After a slow summer of chasing low-level skips for her cousin Vinnie’s bail bonds agency, Stephanie Plum finally lands an assignment that could put her checkbook back in the black. Geoffrey Cubbin, facing trial for embezzling millions from Trenton’s premier assisted-living facility, has mysteriously vanished from the hospital...more

I love the Stephanie Plum books because they're fun, funny and are shot through with a good bit of mayhem and mystery, and a little bit of romance.
Still, we're up to the 19th book in the series now, and I'm hoping Evanovich is drawing the story to a close.
In Notorious Nineteen Stephanie's latest mission is to track down Geoffrey Cubbins, who's gone missing from hospital. Cubbin...more
Stephanie Plum has a life that amuses me. She's surrounded by potential dangers, is constantly being bailed out of trouble by the darkly handsome, potentially walking a fine line with the law with his business yet extremely sexy...more
In Notorious Nineteen , we are set with the fab team of Vinnie's Bonds and we can only assume that they have finally got their office building back after the blowing up...more
