Add a secret ingredient:

Bring to a boil:
Stephanie Plum is working overtime tracking felons for the bonds office at night and snooping for security expert Carlos Manoso, A.K.A. Ranger, during the day. Can Stephanie hunt down two killers, a traitor, five skips, keep her grandmother out of the sauce, solve Ranger’s problems and not jump his bones?
This was a major disappointment. The last 2 or 3 books have been very much to the formula and this is the same. I can remember when I first discovered Stephanie Plum and really enjoyed the first books of the series. Now its just feels like evanovich is using the same formula and changing the dates/times/places. The characters haven't grown and its just more of the same. Glad I borrowed it rather than bought it.

I've loved reading about Stephanie's adventures since book "1", but this book was disappointing in comparison to the others. Same thing different day... There was NO romance!!!! No really laugh out loud moments... How many cars can she go through? Imagine her insurance rates! Lula wasn't as "amusing" this time... Seems like Joe and Ranger were after-thoughts... I don't know, but WHAT HAPPENED! I still gave it "3" stars because I didn't outright DISLIKE it, but I think from now on I'll just borrow from the library!
Is it just me, or is the Stephanie Plum formula getting monotonous? Except for a few laughs, I thought this book was mediocre. The Rrangeman vs. Morelli thing is getting old. And how many times does a person's apartment get firebombed? I think this will be one of the last Stephanie Plum novels I read.
Excellent Stephanie Plum adventure! I have been reading the series since it began and even though the mayhem changes, it is still laugh-out-loud fun with Stephanie and Lula. This book has more car explosions, a return of the big blue Buick and more of Stephanie working for Rangeman. I found this story to be very quick-paced, I didn't want to put it down! If you are a true Stephanie Plum fan, you will no doubt chuckle out loud to her latest mishaps.
This book was not up to the usual Plum standards. It sounded canned. The characters were flat, no evolution over the past few books. No tension between Ranger and Joe. Just the same ol', same ol'. I think when 16 comes out, I'll skip it. Stephanie needs to retire.
