Possibly the best so far in the series, this adventure finds bounty hunter Stephanie Plum on the wrong side of some murderous gang members who've ordered a hit on her. She also finds herself in Ranger's bed, in his lair. Or does she? Steph also encounters a pack of amorous dogs, a phone sex operator, and the usual cadre of miscreant "FTAs." Her family's affairs continue to be a source of aggravation and chuckles -- this time, there's a familiar face playing an exceptionally odd role. And don't miss what happens when Connie, Lula and Steph kidnap a seriously bad guy with the intention of beating some essential information out of him.
Swing off the Jersey Turnpike and you'll ne in bounty hunter Stephanie Plum's neighborhood. You'll know it because all hell will bebreaking loose. It explodes at a deli, and when Stephanie pegs a robber as a member of a vicious Trenton gang, they peg her as dead.
The most intense of the series so far! An intense and excellent read. I could not put it down last night. I am so dissapointed that I have finished the book. I think I am addicted. Too bad we don't have tastycakes in Memphis to drown my sorrows!
"Ten Big Ones" starts innocently with Stephanie in search of some nachos, but it soon develops into mayhem as she interrupts a robbery and manages to get on the wrong side of one of New Jersey's most notorious gangs who put out a contract on her...This is another laugh-out-loud, over-the-top book. Enjoy...
This is my favorite one so far! It was incredibly funny- especially pgs 86-94. I was hysterical. I also really loved getting in deeper with some of the characters - especially Ranger. Ranger is really growing on me, starting with this book. The next couple also delve into his character a lot more. I love this whole series, but this book was definitely one of the best since the beginning!
This is a hilarious series of funny storied books. I read one book and then had to find them all.
Unfortunately Janet doesn't know how to turn on the heat for the romantic side of her stories... and how come Stephanie is never compensated for her losses, and is always just an out of luck victim?? Her new brother in law could be suing these guys for her.
Absolutely hilarious. These books are a riot. The combination of humor and mystery are brilliantly combined.
Laugh out loud funny. Strongly recommened. Stephanie is one unique gal always in the way of trouble no matter how careful she might be.
There has never been a book in this series that I have not read and read again and again...just completed my whole collection Bk one thru 14 now waiting to pick up 15 on PBS I LOVE your bookswap! I will be a faithful bookswapper until I can read no longer haha..
Thanks for all your great work on this site!!
You'll know you're in Stephanie Plum's neighborhood because all hell wil be breaking loose. Not that she looks for trouble--it just seems to follow her. It explodes at a deli, and when Stephanie pegs a robber as a member of a vicious Trenton gang, they peg her as dead. Vice cop Joe Morelli fears she's in way too deep--even with the help of crime-solving, cross-dressing bus driver Sally Sweet, and Stephanie's friend Lula riding shotgun as backup. With a notorious killer on h er tail, Stephanie figures the best hideout is Ranger's secret lair...
This is tenth in the series. I don't think that the books have to be read in order...same characters and more or less the same plot. The nice thing about this series is that it is lighthearted, funny, fast reading. Its a holiday.
Wow! Stephanie has some big britches to fill. She's in the big time now, with a contract on her head and a gang on her tail, and the bride's maid dress from hell. She has to hid in the most dangerouse place she could be, Ranger's bed. Just don't smell the soap, or u may not come up for air.
I LOVE Janet Evanovich, esp. the Stephanie Plum series!! This is a great continuation of the series, with all the BEST characters, including Sally sweet who is HILARIOUS and the final reveal of Ranger's secret lair....FABULOUS! I read it in two days!
Swing off the Jersey Turnpike and you'll be in bounty hunter Stephanie Plum's neighborhood. In Ten Big ones it explodes at a deli, and when Stephanie pegs a robber as a member of a vicious Trenton Gane, they peg her as dead.
If you're a Stephanie Plum fan, you've got to read this one--you get more insights into the life of the mysterious Ranger, including what his shower gel is. There's all the usual humor, wacky characters, and oh yeah, adventure to boot.
SO good to be in PlumLand! Stephanie spends a lot of time living in Ranger's apartment! Sleeping in his bed; using his shower. . . With Bus Driver Sally Sweet and Lula helping, of course it all works out fine!
Another cute book by Stephanie. She and Joe are in over there heads again, the excitement happens at a deli where Steph pegs a robber as a member of a vicious street gang. With the help of Vice Cop Joe Morelli, Sally Sweet and Lula riding shotgun the go after the bad guys.
Tenth in the series of the Stephanie Plum series. Parts of it added an off beat humor that helped with the story. I liked some of her earlier non-Plum books better but it was interesting enough I have purchased a couple of the other ones in the series. I accidentally bought this book twice so this one is new.
If you haven't read the Stephanie Plum novels you've missed a lot of fun. I find myself laughing out loud sometimes while reading this series, EVanovich is my kind of weird.

Jamie N. reviewed Ten Big Ones (Stephanie Plum, Bk 10) on
Number 10 in the Stephanie Plum Series. Bounty Hunter Stephanie Plum gets marked for death by a Trenton gang and her only hope is to stay at Ranger's private hideaway. Great book with all the usual Plum mishaps!
Another fun adventure with Stephanie Plum, she is always trying to get it right in the job department and boyfriend department. Love Ranger and Joe. Fun series, always a laugh and a what did she just do question. She is just funny.
Up another hum dinger! Could not put it down!
Stephanie and Lula are trying to figure out what to eat when Lula pulls out her gun and was boasting about her shooting when she takes out the pack tire of a bicycle, that turns out to be the get a way vehicle for the devil masked man robbing the deli for the 14th time, he throws his molotov cocktail at the deli and the manager runs out with it throwing at the devil masked man and hit him and Stephanie's yellow Ford Escape. It turns out that she is the only one who can ID the masked man.
She continues to work and pick up skips and then Morelli tries to keep her safe and she loses it and walks out. She finds an apartment for Val, but it wont be ready to move in for 2 weeks. She realizes there is a hit out on her and she has to keep a low profile, which she is not good at doing.
She ends up at Ranger's as a safe hide out so that none of her family or friends get hurt in this fiasco. She continues to hide. She continues to work. But what happens when Ranger comes home? What does the Junkman (hired gun) want with her anyway? Will she survive her diet? Will Val get married? Just when Steph thinks its safe to return to her life and go to her sister's bridal shower is when they nab her!
