I loved every minute of this gem. Lula and Stephanie find that a mystery woman is stalking Stephanie with intent to kill. She claims she is Ranger's wife, and Ranger is mysteriously unreachable. The Hilarity volume rises as the new owners of the town funeral parlor are introduced to Grandma Mazur. I was wary that Janet Evanovich might be running out of material and situations to write about, but she cooked up a goodie in this one!
So glad to be back with Stephanie Plum again. This book is definitely worthy of the franchise and if you want to hang with Stephanie again, this is the way to do it! We learn more about Ranger in the process.
All fluff. A three evening read. Always enjoyable. Everytime I think this will be the last one, Evanovich must be out of ideas for Stephanie. Twelve Sharp was still the same book as the others, yet different enough that I didn't say "Bah!" and put it down.
Twelve Sharp is yet another laugh outloud book by Janet Evanovich. Stephanie Plum (bounty hunter from New Jersey) tries to bring back her cousin Vinnie's bonds while she's looking for Ranger who seems to have disappeared. If you've read the previous 11 books in the series don't miss this one as it has lots of funny episodes with her partner Lula and her wacky family.
Stephanie Plum is a bounty hunter. While chasing down the usual criminals she discovers shes being stalked by a crazy woman. Somebody dies, and Stephanie goes from chasing skips to hunting a murderer. She is joined by Ranger. They have to find a murderer and rescue a missing girl.
I love Stephanie Plum,I'e read everyone of her series.Morelli and Ranger are the men of many young womens dreams,and grandma Mazur and a real funny lady.I can't wait for the next.I wonder LUCKY THIRTEEN?
All of Janet's books are excellent. It's great to follow the anventures of Stephanie, LuLu and Grandma in their bumbling adventures. I would recommend all the Plum books to anyone that needs a light, laugh out loud read every once in a while.
When a Ranger wannabe kidnaps Ranger's daughter, Stephanie Plum is drawn into the search. Believe it or not, she manages to get through the entire book without having her car blown up, burned up, stolen, or otherwise destroyed. Must be a first!
This is by far my favorite book of the series so far. Finally we get to focus in on the life of Ranger (somewhat) and learn a little about him. Twelve Sharp had all of the action, drama and laughs that keep me reading Janet Evanovich's Plum series. Great read!
I love the Stephanie Plum books. Each one is better than the last and this one is no exception. Loved it!
Currently 5/5 Stars.

The Stephanie Plum series is hilarious. Janet Evanovich combines mystery, insanity, romance, action and a dose of family for a great ride every time. I'm not too much into series' but J.E. is on top of her game.
Currently 5/5 Stars.

"Twelve Sharp" is better than Number 11. Stephanie is still a bounty hunter and she still has two men in her life. The humor, sexual tension and danger are all mixed into this novel. A great afternoon escape.
A friend gave me this book, it isn't the typical kind of book that I read, but I enjoyed it and laughed all the way from Dallas to LA!! Good humor and funny story. Will be going back to read the others in the series.
A woman calling herself Carmen Manoso says she is Ranger's wife, and is stalking Stephanie. The adventure begins! Can Stephanie give up on loving both Ranger and Morelli? Can she keep from blowing up a car this time? Loved this book, and can't wait til the next one!
Great book - lots of adventure. Can't beat Stephanie Plum for making a person laugh. I woke my husband laughing at Grandma Mazer and her antics. I regret that I could not find the exact ISBN for this book anywhere in the system...but it is the same book and cover.
The 12th installment of Janet Evanovich's wildly popular mystery saga featuring the feisty and ever-endearing lingerie buyer turned bounty hunter Stephanie Plum pits the New Jersey bond enforcement agent against her most formidable foe yet: a completely deranged psycho obsessed with one of Plum's two longtime love interests.
Twelve Sharp begins with Plum faced with the usual unsavory duties of a bounty hunter -- tracking down a bevy of criminals who have skipped out on their bail. Targets on her "skip" list include the aptly named Melvin Pickle, a self-proclaimed pervert who is eerily reminiscent of Pee-wee Herman; Mary Lee Truk, a menopausal housewife who stabbed her husband where the sun don't shine; and Caroline Scarzolli, a 72-year-old porn peddler. But Plum's hunt for wayward criminals is rudely interrupted by a crazed, gun-toting woman claiming to be the wife of Ricardo "Ranger" Manoso, the tall, dark, and handsome Cuban-American bounty hunter who, along with Trenton cop Joseph Morelli, make up Plum's love triangle -- one as steamy as it is dysfunctional. After Ranger's alleged wife turns up dead and his estranged daughter is kidnapped, Plum discovers that someone has stolen Ranger's identity and is slowly and systematically taking over his life. Next on the unhinged impostor's list is Ranger's hot girlfriend -- Plum herself.
This books flewwwwwww by - seemed a bit too short but had the usual light-hearted sections and hardcore danger. The big crime in this book revolves around Ranger again, so this causes tension for Stephanie's relationship with Morreli as she investigates stuff out of her area of expertise and involving his competition. Less annoying Bob the dog in this book, but plenty of Grandma Mazur and Lulu.
Once again, Janet has written a great book about Stephanie Plum! This one keeps you on the edge of your seat as to what will happen with the two men in her life. Already looking forward to her next book, which I hopes comes sooner than later!
