I was getting disappointed with the last few books; it was starting to get boring. Obviously, the author's got a formula for this series, and I keep reading to find out which guy Stephanie's going to end up with and for the laughs. The difference in the books now come down to the delivery, not so much the plot, characters, nor originality. To my surprise, this book saves the series again. It's interesting, reminds me of CSI or Castle, very funny, and gets you worked up on Stephanie's love life. It leaves you finding the next one in the series to read.

I like all of Janet Evanovich's books with Stephanie Plum as the main character. I do NOT like murder/mystery books, but this series is FUNNY!

I love Janet Evonovich's books, but I really love the Stepanie Plum series, sometimes I find myself laughing out loud. Her antics and the characters around her are great and the men in her life are hot... what more could you want. The excitement of not knowing when the next bad guy will come after her, never knowing which man she will actually end up with and her grandma makes comments that you would never hear from my gram... the books always leave me wanting more and I can't wait for the next one.

As a huge fan of all of the Stephanie Plum novels, I highly recommend this one! It's exciting, it's sexy, and in my opinion, it's the best one yet!

** spoiler alert ** Again another really comforting joyful read. Stephanie is in charge of finding a guy that Vinnie wrote a Visa Bond for. Of course we all know that at some point Stephanie is going to stumble upon a mess and get into trouble. Usually requiring the back up of the most of the not so helpful Lula, Ranger, and Joe.
Valerie is driving her family insane and about to give birth. Their father is in the process of moving out, because he cannot handle everyone at home, their mom is hanging on, and Grandma is drinking. Which we all know is never good and can only lead to trouble. Stephanie gives up her apartment to Valerie to help her parents out and kinda sort of moves in with Joe. For awhile they are getting along until insecurities rise up. Surprisingly though Stephanie makes it through the whole book without leaving Joes house because of an argument.
The bad guy for this one actually sort of surprised me. I knew the guy she thought was behind the flowers was not Bart but I honestly thought it could have been Andrew. Who knew it would be Clyde right??? Well, Stephanie joins up with Lula and Connie to search for the missing Bond guy in Vegas. Connie and Lula stay out all night, Lula lost money and is consuming huge amounts of meat, Connie lost her shoes and has a picture that leads her to believe she married and Elvis impersonator. Stephanie finds her guy (the police actually do and he's dead), but She finds the dog and can't wait to bring him home.
This again was another really good book.

Oh Stephanie Plum. You crack me up. I took a break from the Stephanie Plum series after reading 8.5 books all one after another and decided I didn’t want to ruin a good thing by having too much of it. But, then I randomly watched One for the Money (again) and I decided the break was over and Stephanie and I (more like Morelli, Ranger, and I) were going to need to rekindle. And I had a smile on my face from page one. Even when she’s just awaken from being knocked out with some of her hair missing, and in front of a dead body you can’t help but think “You’re awesome Steph.” This mystery definitely topped the majority of the other books because the killer was SO sadistic. I really loved it. It reminded me of Ramirez from the first few novels. And, even though there were moments when I thought man that person is sick, I couldn’t help but laugh at some of the random things that go through Stephanie’s mind and some of the awkward situations she gets herself into. And then of course Stephanie finally has some stuff figured out. Does she have the guy thing figured out? No. Does she have the career thing figured out? Nope. Ok, well she barely has things figured out, but she come to realize what she does want in her future and I thought that was a big move for Steph. Not to mention the characters, Steph, Morelli, Ranger, Lula, Connie, and even her sister and her sister’s “boyfriend” all crap me up. They are some strange characters that you just can’t help falling in love with. Stephanie Plum never makes anything simply, but also never leaves you bored or without a smile on your face.
Stephanie—“My poor bambinos”. Cracked me up.
Morelli—I use to hate when guys called me Cupcake. Now if a guy called me Cupcake I would smile…and probably be picturing you instead of them.
Ranger—Babe. Hot damn Ranger is awesome and I love the tension between Stephanie and him.
Lula, Connie, and the rest—As always you are all awesome.
There were some moments when the story goes a little slow. They are few and far in between, but they still exist. And sometimes when Stephanie is collecting clues it tends to get a little bit boring.
Overall (Writing style, story line, and general):
Overall Stephanie Plum has never really let me down. Neither has Janet Evanovich. The story was pretty easy to follow, although sometimes there are so many characters your head spins just trying to remember them, but I never really had to re-read something to understand it. Stephanie isn’t really a genius (although sometimes I think she is) so everything is laid out pretty easy for the reason to understand. The story-line was a good one, and as always the characters were awesome. I am definitely not apposed to reading some more Stephanie Plum.
