Stephanie Plum might not be the world's greatest bounty hunter, but she knows when she's being played. Ken Globovic (aka Gobbles), hailed as the Supreme Exalted Zookeeper of the animal house known as Zeta fraternity, has been arrested for beating up the dean of students at Kiltman College. Gobbles ...more
I also think Janet isn't writing these books anymore. The pacing, dialog, and feeling are all off.(less)
More lists with this book...
Ok... Janet Evanovich... let me level with you here.
Make this the last book. Make it good. Make it not be like books 15-21 and end this played out series. Please. Do not reuse all your old material. For the love of God let Stephanie choose between Ranger and Morelli or neither. Permanently. Let her not be the same person who has not grown or changed at all... give her something. More than a hamster.
Ok. Better than the last two books in my opinion.
Still a ...more

Yes, our bounty hunter still trashes a few of Ranger's fancy cars, Yes, Grandma Mazur still attends her visitations, and Yes, Lula is still her usual spandex eating machine self; BUT I had many more laugh-out-loud moments in TRICKY TWENTY-TWO than the last three books...more
Ranger and Morelli think that's Stephanie in the middle. They have cataracts. (Steph died years ago from clogged arteries.)
Most fans of this series are thinking that there is no way to resolve this triangle unless the author decides to kill one of them off. And, hey, I'm down with that! Kill Morelli! I'll even help! But, I don't see it ever happening. The author has ...more
Obviously anyone who has already subjected themselves to TWENTY-ONE prior books in this series has a serious mental disorder . . . .
In my defense, I thought I was over my addiction. I mean, Evanovich is up to like 24 and I had stopped at 21 when NetGalley quit offering ARCs so that was good, right? But then the dang stinking library challenge had this series offered up as one of the options for a contemporary mystery and I ...more
I liked the ...more
This book had all the typical SP mischief, with none of the silliness, there were no giraffes!!! Yes, cars blue up, granny shot off her gun, and Lula strut around in her crazy clothes.... And of course there were donuts, lots of donuts! But the ending was a bit of a shocker(view spoiler)[ mom got all kick ass at the end, it ...more
This 22nd book in the 'Stephanie Plum' cozy mystery' series has the usual murder, mayhem, and fun. The book can be read as a standalone.
If you're a fan of Janet Evanovich's 'Stephanie Plum' series you know what to expect and this book delivers as usual. Stephanie, a semi-competent bounty hunter, is trying to track down Ken Globovic (Gobbles), a member of the Zeta fraternity at Kiltman College. Gobbles skipped bail after being arrested for assaulting a college administrator, Dean ...more
This is one of my most favorite series to listen to on audiobooks. Lorelei King is the narrator and she does a fantastic job each and every time. This is the 22nd book in the series. Yes, 22nd! It's my go-to read when I want something funny.
Quick background: Stephanie Plum is a bounty hunter for her cousin who is a bail bondsman. Her companion is Lula, who is an ex-prostitue. Neither have any experience in bounty hunting, so it's like the blind leading the blind. Stephanie has been in an on ...more
Because Tricky Twenty-Two is a rehash of 21, 20, 19, 18, 17, 16, 15...you get what I mean.
Without further ado, here's 22 Things About Tricky Twenty-Two
1. Stephanie is still a bounty hunter and her skips still get away from her.
2. Lula is still her sidekick and wearing outrageous clothing and hairstyles.
3. Mrs. Plum is still ironing when stressed and hitting the whiskey.
4. Gramma Mazur is as ...more
It's a shame because I used to devour these books like air. I have zero expectations for this book. I have no doubt that Stephanie will have no growth, she'll still be deciding between Ranger and Morelli, Lulu will continue to bitch about her weight, and Grandma will blow something up.
Janet is literally rehashing old material ...more
***Edited To Add 11/18/15***
Well, hmmm. Why DO I do this to myself?
The entire book, it really SEEMED like this might be the end of things. I had such a sense of goodwill. I was more patient with characters than I have been in awhile. Everyone was talking about change and exhibiting the growth they have been sorely needing for 80% of the series. I gave it a whole extra star for that! Then I realized there was an excerpt ...more
Besides that though, this was classic Stephanie. I did love seeing her mom more in this and finally getting that feeling that we can understand her and actually like her more. I really hope she plays a bigger role in these from now on other than just cooking or ironing ...more
Reread June 2018– Still loving these ...more
If my boyfriend told me that we should see other people, right after having sex mind you, I would've gone berserk on him. Seriously, I would strangle him with a pillow right then and there, while he was still in postcoital mellowness. The other option would be shooting him with a gun in the bedside table and use pillow as a silencer. I gave it a serious thought just in case, It's good to keep your options open. What did Steph do? She told Morelli to get lost, grown a huge pimple, sat in a car by ...more
