I didn't enjoy this as much a Stephanie Plum novel, but a fun read just the same. Great for the beach or vacation. Engaging, but not much brain power required.

Wonderful first book in Janet's New series. Stars a great new female lead, a NASCAR driver, and the usual cast of wild characters. Very funny.

I think I had higher expectations of this book. I love Evanovich's Plum books and this book just isn't a Plum book. I tried not to let this sway my judgement of this book but over all it kind of did. I wasn't able to fully get into the characters or the storyline. I think this was my issue, however, not the storyteller. The repetitive referal to Sam as NASCAR Guy kind of irritated me but not enough to stop me from finishing this book. I think over all the book was decent and interesting enough for me to pick up the second in the series.

This is a high-octane misadventure with hot nights, high stakes, cold-blooded murder, and NASCA Guy. That about covers what a good novel needs. I've got the book, you add the chocolates and comfortaqble chair.

This is a funny mystery with some twists. Our bookclub read it as a fun summer read and it was a good choice.

I am a fan of Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series, and Metro Girl is right up there on that level. Very good book, I look forward to reading the sequel, Motor Mouth.

I liked it, but this book isn't nearly as much fun as the Plum series.

In the style of her Stephanie Plum novels, this book introduces a new cast of zany and lovable characters. This was a perfect summer read - entertaining and funny.

Enjoyable, easy read. The characters are interesting and well written in Evanovich's breezy style. Not quite as much fun as a bunch of Plums, but still worth the time.

This book reminds me of a Clive Cussler book- if Dirk Pitt were a girl! I liked it a lot. It has a little of the charactor of the heroine from the One for the Money series too. A fun read!

Thoroughly entertaining, a lovely novel & a fun way to spend time with one of my favorite authors. You won't regret letting Alex Barnaby and her crew into your fantasy life. Living vicariously through Janet Evanovich's characters & plots of danger leaves you wanting to read more.
