If you like mysteries, this is a fast read. I had not had the opportunity to read this author as of yet. If you like humor mixed in with your mystery this is a good one to start with. I laughed till I cried in some spots, and if you read you will discover where that part of the story is. Enjoy, it's worth the time to read for something mysterious and light at the same time.
So funny! Evanovich is always getting laughs but this book really gets you going. Barney (a sassy lady) thinks there's some cheating going on among the NASCAR drivers at the local race track and she sets out to prove it. Then a body turns up and the police are looking at her and her newest fella. A wild chase begins and you won't have it figured out until the last page.
Another fun read from Evanovich. If you like Stephanie Plum and the numbers books, you'll enjoy the books with Barney. While not great literature, there's enough laughs and adventure to entertain you on the beach, on the bus or just in the comfort of your own easy chair.
I don't get into NASCAR, but this is a book that should be made into a movie, it is hil-ar-ious! Funny, funny, funny, from dead bodies in trailer to missing parts as appetizers for bowzer, not real name. From Puerto Rican chicks that think they're detectives or something religiously funny. A must read.
LOVED this book! Absolutely hilarious with a great mystery plot. I love Alex's attitude. Just a fun, easy read with plenty of suspense & thrills to add to the mix. It was my first of hers and I've already ordered alot more!
A woman with a taste for speed and a talent for breaking the rules, Barney also knows a little something about cheating. First there was Hooker and that salesclerk. Now she's convinced one of the competitors is up to no good on the track. Snooping to find evidence, Hooker & Barney wind up with a "borrowed" NASCAR hauler, two race cars, and a dead guy. And that's just the beginning of the trouble.
I used to really like the Stephanie Plum series, but I found them becoming too predictable. This series is a nice change. I like the fact that the protagonist is smart, good with mechanical things, and isn't always a bumbling idiot. Sure, I can probably relate to Stephanie more on a personal level, but I don't mind reading about someone who is quite my polar opposite. Lots of fun to read!
Barney, Hooker, and friends are back, tearing up the race track, and tearing up the town! The action takes place in a wild race around Southern Florida and Concord, North Carolina, home of NASCAR. Barney and Hooker "borrow" a NASCAR trailer to save a friend, only to discover that in addition to the two race cars and their friend Gobbles in the back, there's also a naked dead man wrapped in plastic! And that's not all... turns out the cars house their own secrets as well.
Now on the run from a couple of hit men, the head of R&D at Huevo Industries, and the police for questioning on a murder they didn't commit, Barney and Hooker team up with old pals Felicia and Rosa to clear their names, and try to figure out what's going down in downtown!
This was another great Evanovich read which I enjoyed just as much as its predecessor Metro Girl. It had a lot of laugh-out-loud moments, and you're left wondering just what's happening right up until the very end.
Written in typical Evanovich style, this is a new character for Stephanie Plum lovers. The descriptions, situations, and characters have the free-wheeling Evanovich stamp. You'll laugh your way through this high-octane adventure involving a NASCAR driver, a St. Bernard, and lots of dead goons.
I read Metro Girl and figured I needed to read Motor Mouth. Well, when I got this one, I couldn't even get a quarter of the way through it. The story was so unbelievable(I know, I know, it's just a book) but it was too, too, too much for me.
