This is one of the best in the Stephanie Plum series. (I've only read through 5 so far, though!) If you want a mystery that is laugh-out-loud funny, this series delivers. My husband asked to read them after hearing me laugh so often. Now HE'S hooked! (And that's saying a lot!)
I'm very happy that it took me so long to find Stephanie Plum. Now I can zoom through the next ten or so books since they've already been published! This one has the brash, rash Trenton, NJ bounty hunter tangling with undertakers and arms dealers with the help of Grandma Mazur and sexy Joe Morelli.
I love Stephanie! I think Lula, thr "Ho" turned file clerk who always wants to put a cap up someone's ass, is hilarious. I love the fact that you can almost taste the New Jersey smog. I love the daft granny! Sometimes books you can read in a day - just for a laugh are worth as much as pulitzer winners.
The 2nd in the Stephanie Plum series, it just gets better. Evanovich writes rich, full characters that grab you by the collar and jerk you into the story. Be ready to laugh out loud when Stephanie's Grandma Mazur decides to "help out" with her current case.
Hanging out with Stephanie in Trenton is like driving around my own city. I can almost see the old guys hanging around in front of the stores, and the kids on the streetcorners. The descriptions are top notch and you really feel like you are riding shotgun with the sassiest bounty hunter around.
This is the 2nd in the series with Stephanie Plum, the inept bounty hunter, her two love interests - Joe and Ranger - and her eccentric family, including the infamous Grandma Mazur. Great reading and a surefire belly laugh in several places.
