Overview

This boxed set contains three hilarious Stephanie Plum novels from Janet Evanovich: Four to Score, High Five and Hot Six.

 

Four to Score:

 

Stephanie Plum, Trenton, New Jersey's favorite pistol-packing, condom-carrying bounty hunter, is back—and on the trail of a revenge-seeking waitress who's skipped bail. With then help of 73-year-old Grandma Mazur, ex-hooker Lula, a transvestite musician named Sally Sweet, and the all-too-hospitable, all-too-sexy Joe Morelli, Stephanie might just catch her woman. Then again, with more mishaps than there are exits on the Jersey Turnpike—including murders, firebombs, and Stephanie's arch-rival bounty hunter chasing after the same fugitive—Stephanie better watch her back big-time if she wants to live to crack this case.

 

High Five:

Bounty hunter Stephanie Plum sets out to find her missing uncle— and along the way smacks slam-bang into: a dead body, a nasty bookie, her stun-gun-toting grandmother, two very sexy men, an angry little man who won't leave her apartment, and a Mafia wedding. Jersey's favorite bounty hunter has never been better! With high hair, street smarts and plenty of attitude, Steph's sure to nail this case— or risk life and spandex-clad limb trying...

 

Hot Six:

Bounty hunter Stephanie Plum and Trenton vice cop Joe Morelli join forces to find the madman killer who shot and barbecued the youngest son of international black-market arms dealer Alexander Ramos. Carlos Manoso, street name Ranger, is caught on video just minutes before the crime occurs. He's  the number-one suspect. Ranger is Stephanie's mentor—the man who taught her everything she knows about fugitive apprehension. And he's more than her friend.

Meet the Author

Janet  Evanovich

Bestselling author Janet Evanovich is the recipient of the Crime Writers Association's John Creasy Memorial, Last Laugh, and Silver Dagger awards, as well as the Left Coast Crime's Lefty award, and is the two-time recipient of the Independent Mystery Booksellers Association's Dilys award. She lives in New Hampshire, and is at work on her next Stephanie Plum adventure.

Biography

When plucky Stephanie Plum lost her job as a lingerie buyer, she had little other choice than to take a position working for her cousin Vinnie's bail-bonds office where she'd spend her days and nights hunting down fugitives, solving mysteries, and falling ass-backwards into adventure. Come to think of it, Ms. Plum has more than a little in common with her creator Janet Evanovich.

Much like the panty-pushing Plum, Evanovich once made her trade in erotica as a romance novelist for the trashy Bantam series "Loveswept." Tiring of the genre and finding herself increasingly fixated on crime, mystery, and the kind of adventures she came to love through comic books like Uncle Scrooge, she decided to ditch steamy stories in favor of off-the-wall humor and feats of daring. As Evanovich said on her website, "after twelve romance novels I ran out of sexual positions and decided to move into the mystery genre."

The resulting Stephanie Plum Mysteries reflect Evanovich's love for comics, toys, shoe-shopping, Cheez Doodles, and beer. Evanovich also created a memorable character that shares many of the author's distinctive traits, such as her self-effacing, dirty-minded wit. The Plum Mysteries, while often rambling and thin on plot, are never anything less than entertaining, hilarious, and refreshing in every way.

Stephanie Plum made her debut in 1994's One For the Money, in which she tracked down Joe Morelli, an ex-cop and murder suspect who'd also been guilty of taking Stephanie's virginity when she was 18. The novel's sly mix of sexiness and childlike playfulness made for a sort of young adult novel for adults.

Since then, the red-hot bounty hunter and a crew of misfits that includes retired hooker Lula, aging bail-jumper Eddie Decooch, and Plum's own hipster granny have romped their way "through the numbers," establishing Evanovich as one of the best and most inventive writers of "Strong Woman" mysteries and guaranteeing her a place on the New York Times bestseller list.

In 2004, Evanovich introduced a smart, savvy new series featuring Alexander "Barney" Barnaby, a sexy Baltimore car mechanic, NASCAR nut, and amateur sleuth with her own posse of delightful eccentrics. She's not Plum, but she's definitely a peach. Hey, what else would you expect from a Janet Evanovich heroine?

Good To Know

Evanovich's motorcycle-riding daughter Alex has created an online comic about her hamster called "Batster," which her mother proudly displays on her web site. With episodes like "Batster vs. Beerzilla," it's clear that wackiness runs in the Evanovich genes.

If you think the Stephanie Plum novels are zany, wait till you hear about what Evanovich was writing before she started getting published. As she explains on her web site, "The first story [I ever wrote] was about the pornographic adventures of a fairy who lived in a second rate fairy forest in Pennsylvania."

    If you like humor and great characters you've got to read Evanovich's Plum series!

    A friend of mine handed me the first box set and by the end of the first book I was hooked. I love Janet Evanovich's "brand" of humor. Be warned though, It's not for the meek. The characters are so well written that I often wonder if she really knows these people. I highly recommend these books!

    A Must Read

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanovich. I am reading the series for the 3rd time. These books will make you laugh so hard that you cry, your heart will smile at the few tender moments, and you will shake your head in disbelief. Janet Evanovich has written these books so well that you see yourself right there in the middle of all the action. A must read series!!

    Worth while reading.

    The books in the numbers series are all well written, all entertaining, and Janet Evanovich always manages to makes me laugh out loud. I have read all of them up to Seventeen, and my big hope is that Evanovich keeps writing this series, the Plum books are well written, intriguing, witty, laugh out loud funny, and I can never put one down once i start it. I highly recommend the numbers series.

    When i finish one book i can't wait to get started reading the next one!

    The characters are described so well that i have the perfect image of them in my mind. The books made into a movie without actors who look exactly as i have them pictured would be a disappointment to me! I get so involved in the books that i often don't want to put the book down at night! A friend of my in Oregon told me about this series and i am so glad i finally started reading them. I have just sent the first 2 sets to a friend in Indiana! I am now reading the 3rd book in the 3rd set and have the fourth set ordered! I am dreading the day when i finish reading the ones already in print and have to wait for Janet to write the next one! I recently overheard a group of 30 something yr. old ladies talking (i am in the 60 something age group!) and one was saying that she didn't know what she was going to fix for dinner, one of the other girls said, i wish i lived with Stephanie Plum's Mother, another said I wish i lived with Ranger or Morelli!! I do alot of my reading while my husband is watching a ballgame or golf and he recently said to me, those must be really good books the way you laugh out loud! Those are usually the times when Lula is describing a tough situation they have found themselves in - which happens quite often! I find the books very relaxing and entertaining!

    Great Series

    I <3 the Stephanie Plum series! Lots of fun and a quick easy read. She seems to always be getting herself into some crazy nonsense that is both scary and funny. Men either hate her and want her dead, or love her and can't stay away. I also love Ranger and Joe Morelli. They are both super hott and she can't decide what to do with either of them. She lives alone, most of the time, and has a close family dynamic. Her grandmother is hillarious, as well as ex-ho Lula. Lots of guns and the possiblity of violence. Can't wait to read what her next big adventure will be...

    Entertaining

    I have read the first six books of the series. They were all entertaining, but after a while it was basically the same story with different characters. The one thing that kept me coming back was to find out what was going to happen to the romance between Stephanie and Joe, which develops in each book. Although one wouldn't have to read previous books in the series because Evanovich explains the characters at the beginning of each book, I think it would pull it together better if they did.

    These are the funniest books I have ever read. My 10 yr. old son has kicked me out of the living room while he is watching tv because I can not control the laughter. I recommend these books to EVERYONE who needs to smile and has a soundproof room

    I just wish Stephanie had more "on" time with Ranger. When she's broke up with Morrilli (and this is often) she definently should give Ranger a go, she might just be able to change his outlook on coupling. Right Ms. Evanovitch?

    Janet Evanovich

    All of Janet's books are so entertaining. She write very descriptive so you can picture the characters in your mind. And she makes you laugh, not just chuckle but laugh from deep inside yourself that everyone needs to do daily. My husband always knows when I am reading one of Janet's books because I am usually laughing loud enough to be heard in the rest of the house. Janet's books are ones that I read for the pure joy of being entertain while reading. I always feel better and ligher after reading any of her books.
