Another fun Plum book with memorable characters. Stephanie is a potential victim in a "game" with mortal consequences. Her heart is still torn between Morelli and Ranger. No cars blow up in this one---that was getting old!
Awesome....I love the Plum Series. Stephanie may not be the best bounty hunter, and even with her crazy grandma ( I love that lady), her sassy side kick Lula, and a steamy love triangle bringing all kinds of drama into her life, she always gets her man.
They say familiarity breeds contempt. Everything in this book is familiar; plot formula, characters, wordplay, scenes only slightly altered from other books in the series. But there is no contempt, only admiration that the author can still pull it off. It's a page turner and a quick read that Plum lovers will enjoy despite the repetition. New readers will most likely find it great fun. As for me, I think I'll try Carl Hiaasen next time.
Here's another wild adventure for Stephanie Plum, bounty hunter and Jersey girl. With Morelli, Ranger, Lula and Connie running back up, she finds herself engaged in a deadly game with a not-very-nice killer. I was surprised Steph didn't identify the killer sooner (I did), but the madcap story still makes for hilarious reading. You won't believe what happens when Stephanie and crew hit the Vegas Strip!
You just can't get enough of Stephanie Plum. But I definitely recommend starting with One for the Money and working your way up. If you start in the middle of the series, you may not understand the characters as well.
Ms Evanovich has brought back Ms Stephanie Plum which is always fun.
She has wonderful characters surrounding Mr Plum and many strange and funny things always happen to her in her pursuit of her job as a Bounty Hunter.
Another great Stephanie Plum journey. This time she is on the hunt for Mr. Samuel Singh, an illegal immigrant. What she uncovers is far more sinister than anyone imagines and leads to a group of killers who give new meaning to the word hunter. If you like Stephanie Plum mysteries you will love this book.

The characters in this book were very amusing. I liked Plum a lot, she's very down-to-earth, and I found myself laughing out loud almost from page 1. My only disappointment was Evanovich's need to use curse words. I found them very distracting and totally unnecessary.
I read this book years ago by accident. I didn't know about this series and it was evident after the first chapter that it was a series. However, it was so good that I had to keep reading them. Then I was able to start at the beginning. This is an excellent laugh out loud series. I love the characters and look forward to each book. I'm just looking to own these in paperback due to space constraints.
This is the first book I read. I didn't know about the author or the series and I read this one very slow day at work. I LOVED it and I checked the back of the book to see if there was another coming at and discovered there were * before this one and one coming out in a month. I ran t o the library and got the other books. I devoured them.Been hooked ever since!
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.
One of the more hilarious volumes in the Stephanie Plum, Bail Bondswoman Extraordinaire series. Stephanie is hot on the trail of Samuel Singh, who skipped out on his immigration visa deadline bond- and Vinny is left holding the bag. Stephanie, with the usual cast of crazy cohorts, is hot on the case, which leads her, Lula, and Connie to Las Vegas. Stephanie gets ensnared into a live action killing game, and needs the constant help from both the elusive Ranger, and Joe Morelli, one of Trenton's finest, to stay alive and one step ahead of the mastermind. A great read!
Janet always manages to make me laugh so hard I can't see in front of me! Every book has one scene that just pushes the edge and makes me laugh.
Stephanie is helping Ranger so they can all keep their jobs at the bonds office, because Samuel Singh is missing just before his appointment with the law. Then while on the case she finds a stalker red roses and white carnations with a sick note. Stephanie moves back in with Morelli, but this time there is a family twist. Her dad was ready to move out after the baby was born, Val decided she should marry Kloughn and his mother kicked him out of the house! Steph loaned them her apartment, but before we could figure anything out she gets nabbed from Morelli and is thrown into the Web Master's game at TriBro.
Stephanie Plum isn't the world's best bounty hunter, but you can't say she doesn't try!! She is on the trail of Mr. Singh, which leads to her being chased by a group of killers that takes here from New Jersey to Las Vegas and back!!
Stephanie Plum's got rent to pay, people shooting at her, and psychos wanting her dead every day of the week (much to the dismay of her mother, her family, the men in her life, the guy who slices meat at the deli...oh, the list goes on). An ordinary person would cave under the pressure.
But hey, she's from Jersey.
Stephanie Plum may not be the best bounty hunter in beautiful downtown Trenton, but she's pretty darn good at turning bad situations her way...and she always gets her man. In
