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
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
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
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
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
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. ;)
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 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
Stephanie Plum is a Jersey Girl, a bounty hunter, and a resident of a part of Trenton where you can still go to Mom's for dinner and your cop boyfriend Morelli's grandmother has visions that include you in a coffin. Stephanie is on the trail of an Indian contract worker named Singh who disappeared when his visa was up. When she interviews a McDonald's employee who knew him, he's shot as she stands there. Then rose-and-carnation bouquets with very sinister notes start appearing in Steph...more
Stephanie Plum's got rent to pay, people shooting at her, and psychos wanting her dead every day of the week (much to the dismay of her mother, her family, the men in her life, the guy who slices meat at the deli...oh, the list goes on). An ordinary person would cave under the pressure.
But hey, she's from Jersey.
Stephanie Plum may not be the best bounty hunter in beautiful downtown Trenton, but she's pretty darn good at turning bad situations her way...and she always gets her man. In

It's hard to believe, usually by the 5th book I'm over the characters or simply not interested anymore but Steph, Morelli and Ranger keep me wanting more and more. I still haven't decided if I'm on Ranger or Morelli's team... it's a hard choice, no wonder Steph can't make up her mind.
And Lula... hahaha... Lula's the shit!
I loved, loved, looooved the hospital scene, oh my God, I laughed until I cried and my stomach ached.
This entry has Stephanie with a slightly different type of bond skip. Vinnie has signed a visa bond. This is a bong that says a non-citizen will obey his visa and actually leave the country when his visa is up instead of becoming an illegal alien. Now the visa is running out of time and guess who has gone missing? Now Stephanie has almost no clues and is running out of luck. Oh and a serial killer seems to have targeted Stephanie for unknown reasons.
The idea of the story is that, Singh the immigrant work, who Vinnie wrote a Visa bond for ends up missing. So now Stephanie's must find him before his Visa bond is up. But Singh got in a ruthless game. It leads Connie, Lula, & Stephanie to Las Vegas just to find him. But this game ends up with Stephanie as the final prize if she can't escape. I thought the book was clever. It didn't disappoint.
I love her famil...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.”
