really liked it

Stephanie has hit hard times. Well, harder times than usual that is. Having reached a breaking point, Stephanie quits her job as a bond enforcement officer and pursues other career options much to her chagrin and my personal amusement. Life seems to b!tch slap Stephanie at every turn, and though it is not entirely realistic, it is no less endearing or humorous.

Anyone who has read enough Plum novels to get to "Eleven On Top", knows these books are formulamatic. Stephanie blows up a car, or two, Stephanie fails to apprehend someone due to blatant stupidity, Grandma Mazur tries to lift a casket, Ranger says "Babe", a lot, Lula eats while wearing too tight spandex, so on and so forth. I suppose reading the same tried and true scenarios would become redundant to some, but for me, it's much like slipping on my much worn and oh so loved pjs. They may be tired, but I love them just the way they are.

As for the much heated debate, Ranger vs. Morelli, I thank vati that Stephanie hasn't chosen. I love them both. Asking me to choose between Morelli and Ranger is like asking me if I want a cheese burger or Mexican for dinner, java chip frappachino ice cream or chocolate chip cookies for desert, I am simply not equipped to make these sorts of decisions! My eye is twitching just thinking about it...

As always, hi-lights include...

1. Stephanie whacks a mole... off Mama Macaroni's face
2. Stephanie clucks in Cluck in a Bucket
3. Grandma Mazur vs. Grandma Bella smackdown, literally
4. Joe gets run over, lol
5. The glories of going commando
6. Enticements of the one eyed snake, what leg-hole will it come out next?
7. Lula gets handcuffed, naked, while making an apprehension, go figure
8. Stephanie gives up sugar, oh the horror!
