I think my main problem with reading it was that I have been super busy & when I haven't been busy I've been tired & this book didn't suck me in like all the other books had.
Evanovich still made me laugh - she has a great sense of humor & an amazing way with words but I'm assuming my lack...more
post 1: does janet evanovich integrate the cast of jersey shore into her later stephanie plum novels?
those are really the only things i know about nj other than the fact that it smells like shit as you’re going into nyc. i remember a couple of years ago they had billboards up trying to promote how much it didn’t smell like shit. if you have to put billboards up, nah, probs aint true.
what i appreciate about j.e.’s s...more
For one, the "I brushed my teeth, put on nighties, fed my hamster, got in bed and fell asleep" coverage is greatly scaled back (though, it was a minor gripe before, anyway). Instead we're treated to more action, more plot. I found myself loathe to stop reading for any reason (sleep, work, etc)....more
I've been really tryin', baby
Tryin' to hold back this feelin' for so long
And if you feel like I feel, baby
Then come on, oh, come on
Whoo, let's get it on
Ah, babe, let's get it on
Let's love, baby
Let's get it on, sugar
Let's get it on
In this "episode" we meet a new character - Sally Sweet. He is a cross dressing drag queen... yep... that's what I said. And Joyce is back - Stephanie's arch rival... in bouty hunting (now) and with her husband, Dickie (then). Surprise, Joyce is the reason for the demise of Stephanie's short lived marriage to Dickie, a trenton attorney.
Jealousy over Stephanie's relationship with Sally creates tension until things start to explode, literally, and Ste...more
In Four to Score we can add yet another blown up car to Stephanie's list not to mention her apartment which is torched which leads her right into the arms of Morelli. Add a Grandma Bella and a Grandma Mazur to the story and you've got yourself one heck of a book...I finished this book and kept r...more
In this adventure Stephanie has been given the file of Maxine Nowicki who was apprehended after she took off with her boyfriend Eddie Kunz’s car. After she was released from jail on Vinnie Plum’s bond, she failed to appear for her court date. Stephanie needs to find her and bring her in. Seems Eddie Kunz is looking for Maxine as well. He wants his car back and by the way, he also wants some of his old embarrassing “love letters” as well. So he hir...more
So Plum is going her thing again. She and Morelli finally get together in a moment of necessity because her apartment is firebombed (convenient) by a disgruntled drag queen (just trust me, it makes sense). SP is chasing a waitress who suddenly seems to have limitless funds and zero motive for her strange behavior, making her ex-boyfriend j...more

I thought maybe you were dead.
I hate fix-ups. Fix-ups are always awful.

What's wrong with him?
He's got too many buttons open on his shirt.

However, since I do read plenty of good and worthy literature, both fiction and non, I am not going make excuses. I like Stephanie Plum, and I like this series. And at some point in time, I am going to get tired of it and that will be that.
Won't say much about this. Same sort of fo...more
My review: Janet Evanovich has done it again! I’m madly in love with the Stephanie Plum series and just finished this audiobook.
Bounty Hunter Stephanie Plum is on the case of tracking down Maxine, a waitress who stole her ex-boyfriend’s car and jumped bond. Stephanie hits the ground running with her normal sidekick, Lula. Lula, a 200-lb black woman, has turned her life around after being a prostitute and is now filing...more

Maxine keeps in contact with her ex-boyfriend, by sending him clues, sort of lik...more
Lula reached out to snap the cuffs, and without warning the front and back doors crashed open. Joyce Barnhardt, dressed in swat black with "bounty hunter" emblazoned on her T-shirt, charged into the room with guns drawn. There were three other women with her, all dressed like Joyce, all armed like Rambo on rampage, all yelling "Freeze" at the top of their lungs and doing those squatting cop stances you see in the movies.

[Stephanie] "How'd you get her to leave?"
"Told her I was gonna spend the next twelve hours ruining you for all other men, and so she might as well go home."
I could feel the heat rush to my face.
Ranger gave me the wolf smile. "I lied about it being tonight," he said.”
