Well, I'm not sure how I feel about this book. It had funny moments for sure and I enjoyed it overall, but it wasn't my favorite in the series. The major case just didn't end in a satisfying way for me. There was so much build up and craziness and then it was over very suddenly. Of course, I'll still read the series because I love the character in general, but this one just didn't do it for me.

Evanovich is back on track with the eighth book in the Stephanie Plum bounty hunter series. (I wasn't really all that enthralled with book seven.) She manages to add yet another quirky character (best described as a puppy who follows you around) and there are a couple of surpises from her all-too-perfect sister. Lots of fun in this one!

In "Hard Eight", Janet Evanovich still writes in those quirky-borderline-stupid annoying secondary characters, but the story actually makes up for it. The case Stephanie Plum is working on does get a bit hairy at times and of course the whole Joe vs. Ranger thing is still a primary storyline. You will not be disappointed.

As always, Janet Evanovich writes a funny, laugh out loud, novel. Since my mom's family is from Trenton, I can relate to some of the places in the book. In fact, Grandma Mazur reminds me of one of my mom's aunt - always ready for fun with a smart mouth!

Not reading these in any particular order but that really doesn't seem to impact the story or main characters. It is a fun fluffy kind of book. Something that is easy to pick up at anytime and read. The characters are funny, witty and often predictable but you still turn the page. Interesting story, keeps you working the angles and fun to find out the ending.

No doubt about it, bounty hunter Stephanie Plum has man trouble. Her on-again, off-again relationship with Det. Joe Morelli is currently off, and she's made a tacit agreement to have a wild encounter with the mysterious Ranger. Currently, however, the most deadly man in Stephanie's life is Eddie Abruzzi, a psycho businessman and war-games fanatic.

Stephanie ran afoul of Eddie when she agreed to help her parents' neighbor Mabel Markowitz locate her granddaughter Evelyn and great-granddaughter Annie, who have gone into hiding. Mabel might lose her house because it was used as collateral in a custody bond. Evelyn's ex-husband, who also owes money to Eddie, is angry and threatening. Suddenly everyone is looking for Evelyn the big question is, why? When live snakes and spiders and dead people turn up in Stephanie's apartment, she knows she's in deep trouble. This will teach her to do a favor for a neighbor!

Stephanie Plum is really in a pickle this time! Just when you think that the adventures of Plum and company can't get any funnier or more convoluted.

I did click that I liked the book. However, three quarters into the book her adventure
got tiresome to me. There were some giggles. The ending was a shock to me, it was just
cut off. So I am thinking that Janet Evanovich just ran out of what to write and how
to end the story. I liked the previous books but this one was a disappointment to me.

From Publishers Weekly
The menace is more personal for Trenton's favorite bounty hunter and the energy more manic in this latest outing than in last year's Seven Up. As a favor to her mother's next-door neighbor, Mabel Markowitz, Stephanie agrees to check up on the lady's granddaughter, Evelyn Soder, who has suddenly taken off with her little girl, Annie, leaving behind a child custody bond against Mabel's house. The son-in-law is a bad guy who lost his bar to Eddie Abruzzi, a very nasty character who owns Evelyn's building. Soon someone in a bunny suit is trailing Stephanie, her car is blown up, her apartment infiltrated and a dead body appears on her couch. She calls in her associate, Ranger, the gorgeous and mysterious Cuban bond agent, while her sometime boyfriend, Morelli the cop, also gets on the case--a real doozy for which she's not getting paid. On the home front, ever-raunchy Grandma Mazur is eager to assist. Sister Valerie and kids have moved back in as well, so there's nowhere but the couch for Stephanie and one bathroom for all. Valerie is inexplicably attracted to Evelyn's goofy lawyer, who's been tagging along with Stephanie and the ever-outrageous file clerk and ex-hooker Lula, further complicating this twisted case. Life in the Burg takes on a sinister turn with serious results. Evanovich does it again, delivering an even more suspenseful and more outrageous turn with the unstoppable Stephanie, heroine of all those who have to live on peanut butter until the next check comes through. Waiting for nine will be tough.

From Booklist
*Starred Review*
Stephanie Plum lives not far from her parents in a Trenton, New Jersey, neighborhood called the Burg. Things haven't changed much there since the '50s, despite cell phones and computers and the fact that Stephanie works as a bounty hunter. Stephanie still eats her mom's macaroni and cheese for comfort, and Mom's is where her sister Valerie went when her marriage blew up. It's a little darker for our heroine now. She's kind of broken up with Morelli, the gorgeous cop; she's still wary of Ranger, her guide in bounty hunting, who is composed of equal parts magic and darkness; and an eerie, scary bad guy named Abruzzi is putting snakes in her apartment and spiders in her car, when his minions aren't blowing it up. Steph is trying to find the missing daughter and granddaughter of her mom's next-door neighbor, and Abruzzi doesn't like that. The things Evanovich does so well--family angst, sweet eroticism, stealth shopping, that stunning mix of terror and hilarity--are done better than ever here. This one not only allows Steph some inchoate but graceful complexity but also gives splendid cameos to both her mom and Valerie (the moving automobile as weapon has rarely been employed more outrageously--twice). And Grandma Mazurin the doughnut shop parking lot--well, you won't believe it.

Fugitive Apprehension Agent Stephanie Plum has a big problem on her hands:7 year old Annie Soder and her mother, Evelyn, has disappeared. Evelyn's estranged husband, Steven, a shady owner of a seedy bar, is not at all happy. During the divorce proceedings, he and Evelyn signed a child custody bond, and Steven is demanding the money guaranteed by the bond to find Annie. The money was secured by a mortgage on Evelyn's grandmother's house, and the True Blue Bonds Bail Agency wants to take possession of the house. Finding a kidnaped child is not an assignment for a bbounty hunter. But Evelyn's grandmother lives next door to Stephanie's parents, and Stephanie's mother and grandmother are not about to see their neighbor lose her house because of the abduction. Even though Stephanie's plate is full with miscreants who missed their court dates, including old nemesis and violent drunk Andy Bender and an elusive little old lady accused of grand theft auto, she can't disappoint Grandma Mazurl! So she follows the trail left by Annie and Evelyn-and finds a lot more than she bargained for. Steven is somehow linked with a very scary Eddie Abruzzi. Trenton cop and on-again, off-again fiance Joe Morelli and Stephanie's mentor and tormentor, Ranger, warn Stephanie about Abruzzi, but it's Abruzzi's eyes and mannerisms that frighten Stephanie the most. Stephanie needs Ranger's savvy and expertise, and she's willing to accept his help to find Annie even though it might mean getting too involved with Ranger...

Stephanie is funny as ever. This CD is somewhat shorter (abridged) than the actual novel. There are a few funny moments and threads to the story that were left out but nothing that takes away from the overall effect. I only know that they're missing because I've re-read these so many times just to get a laugh.

This CD is read by C.J.Critt.....NOT by Lorilei King. King is an exceptional reader of Evanovich's books....really brings them to life. This reader......not so much. I didn't realize King didn't read this or I wouldn't have gotten it.

The story, of course is great; as always, laugh out loud funny.

Stephanie Plum picks up a case a little nastier than anything the wisecracking bounty hunter's seen before. Evelyn Soder and her young daughter have gone on the run, leaving an angry ex-husband who's planning to collect on a child custody bond that will leave Evelyn's grandmother homeless. Stephanie's first clue that there's more to it than that comes in the form of Eddie Abruzzi, a shady local businessman who warns her to butt out of the case. Stephanie doesn't scare easily, but when Abruzzi's henchmen leave a bag of snakes on her doorknob and tarantulas in her car, she has no choice but to call Ranger, the hunky man of mystery whom she already owes too many favors. Steph knows that Ranger will soon be calling in his marker, but with her ex- fiancé Joe Morelli out of the picture, that should be OK--shouldn't it? In the meantime, she's got other fugitives to catch, aided by the usual band of misfits, plus a bumbling correspondence-school lawyer who's developed the hots for Stephanie's sister, Valerie. And Steph's in for a surprise from her mother, who proves she's not above wielding a dangerous weapon to save her daughter's life.

"Fugitive Apprehension Agent Stephanie Plum has a big problem on her hands: Seven-year-old Annie Soder and her mother, Evelyn, have disappeared. Evelyn's estranged husband, Steven, a shady owner of a seedy bar, is not at all happy. During the divorce proceedings, he and Evelyn had signed a child custody bond, and Steven is demanding the money guaranteed by the bond to find Annie. The money was secured by a mortgage on Evelyn's grandmother's house, and the True Blue Bonds Bail Agency wants to take possession of the house." "Finding a kidnapped child is not an assignment for a bounty hunter. But Evelyn's grandmother lives next door to Stephanie's parents, and Stephanie's mother and grandmother are not about to see their neighbor lose her house because of the abduction." "Even though Stephanie's plate is full with miscreants who missed their court dates, including old nemesis and violent drunk Andy Bender and an elusive little old lady accused of grand theft auto, she can't disappoint Grandma Mazuri. So she follows the trail left by Annie and Evelyn - and finds a lot more than she bargained for. Steven is somehow linked with a very scary Eddie Abruzzi. Trenton cop and on-again, off-again fiance Joe Morelli and Stephanie's mentor and tormentor, Ranger, warn Stephanie about Abruzzi, but it's Abruzzi's eyes and mannerisms that frighten Stephanie most. Stephanie needs Ranger's savvy and expertise, and she's willing to accept his help to find Annie even though it might mean getting too involved with Ranger." Stephanie, Ranger, Lula (who's not going to miss riding with Ranger) and Evelyn's lawyer/laundromat manager set out to find Annie. The search turns out to be a race among Stephanie's posse, the True Blue Bonds' agent, a Rangerette known as Jeanne Ellen Burrows, and the Abruzzi crew. Not to mention the fact that there's a killer rabbit on the loose.
