Always laugh out loud fun with a Stephanie Plum adventure. I never know what trouble she's going to get in and which of her "men" will be there to bail her and Lula out. The characters are outstanding...loved the taxidermist and Uncle Elmer in this one - Hilarious...now I'm just upset because I have to wait a whole year for another one!
Dude, even her underwear has a RangeMan logo on it. Funny as always. Lots of Ranger, Morelli, Grandma, car destruction and funerals with exploding dead animals thrown in. And Tank and Lula are getting a little more serious. What more could you ask for except for the next book to be released next week.
More of the same from Plum but the same works so dern well that I think I would keep reading until Evanovich stops. The exploding squirrel, Grandma and the ever present and hilarious Lula makes this a great summer read. I got through it quickly without missing a thing which is a big deal for this slow reader. If you've read the previous Plum novels don't stop with this one.
