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?
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!
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.
Loved it.. another interesting and quirky read from Janet Evanovich! Ranger and Morelli continue to duke it out for Stephaine's affections. Grandma is as crazy as ever and of course another car gets martyred to the God of bounty hunters. Enjoy
thecypress reviewed Twelve Sharp (Stephanie Plum, Bk 12) on
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.
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!
This is a hilarious series of funny storied books. I read one book and then had to find them all.
Unfortunately Janet doesn't know how to turn on the heat for the romantic side of her stories... and how come Stephanie is never compensated for her losses, and is always just an out of luck victim?? Her new brother in law could be suing these guys for her.
One of the best! My family thought I was crazy because I was laughing so much. It also had a couple of tear jerking moments. Ranger finally opens up to Stephanie. He's still very mysterious but she finds out quite a bit about his past and childhood. Very good book!
Suspense! Holy cow Batman! Crazy all the twists and turns of this one! For her arch nemesis Joyce to be second fiddle to the man trying to impersonate Ranger! Poor Morelli! Holy it just got real personal! Two alpha males after the same female, Steph also gets a psycho Ranger wanna be who kidnaps his actual daughter and constructs an entire life with them, so Ranger's gotta die!
OMG Laugh out loud funny. I had to stop reading because the tears were blurring the words. I'm still chuckling over the antics of Stephanie, Grandma Mazur, Sally, Lula and the rest of the characters. And then the heat sets in...mmmmmm...Ranger moves in. And then Morelli moves in. *sigh* Will Stephanie ever be able to decide between these two 'hotties'?
This series is great. I write that everytime I finish one of these books! This one had a little more suspense than others, but still hilariously funny with Grandma, Lula and Sally still up to the crazy stunts and hey there i a new funeral director in town also a hoot! Start from book one and keep reading the fun never ends.
I have been working my way through the Stephanie Plum series, & I have to say, though I enjoyed each & every one of them, THIS ONE is by far the funniest. I chuckled, laughed out loud & guffawed at some of her descriptions & actions - I even had to read it out loud to my husband, and then he said he wanted to read the book! You cannot miss this one!
Well, I like that we get to learn a little more about Ranger in this installment. He has a crazy man impersonating him that has kidnapped his daughter and Ranger needs a little help from Stephanie. I was not as happy to see that Stephanie was back to being a bounty hunter full time. I really did enjoy seeing her rely more on her smarts in book 11. Of course, she wasn't really relying on luck as much in this one as usual, so I can't complain too much. Overall, I enjoyed it and I look forward to reading number 13.
As always, I enjoyed this book thoroughly. I was afraid it would be boring, since it's part of the Stephanie Plum series and I wondered how much longer she could go on with the situations she runs into, but Janet Evanovich did not let me down. This story had a good balance of romance, excitement and humor and I enjoyed it thoroughly.
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!
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.
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!
"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.
The twelfth Stephanie Plum book and every one is better than the one before it. Just when you think Evanovich can't possibly come up with a new story line, she pulls it out and manages to give you the best laugh you've had in a long time. In this book Stephanie discovers that she's beeing stalked by a crazed woman. The woman dresses in black, carries a 9mm Glock and has a bad attitude and a mysterious connection to dark and dangeros Carlos Manoso - aka Ranger. Suddenly Stephanie and Ranger are working together to find a killer, rescue a missing child and stop a lunatic from raising the body count and at the same time keep vice cop and sometime live in lover Joe Morelli from breaking up their team.
