Hard Eight (Stephanie Plum Series #8) by Janet Evanovich, Lorelei King

The #1 bestselling phenomenon continues in the eighth Stephanie Plum novel. The stakes get higher, the crimes get nastier, the chases get faster, and the men get hotter.

This time Stephanie, Morelli, Ranger. Lula, Valerie, and Grandma Mazur are strapped in for the ride of their lives. Stephanie is hired to find a missing child. But things aren't always as they seem and Stephanie must determine if she's working for the right side of the law. Plus, there's the Morelli question: can a Jersey girl keep her head on straight when more than just bullets are aimed for her heart? And with the Plum and Morelli relationship looking rocky, is it time for Ranger to move in for the kill? Janet Evanovich's latest thriller proves that Hard Eight will never be enough.

About the Author

Janet Evanovich is the author of the Stephanie Plum books, including One for the Money and Sizzling Sixteen, and the Diesel & Tucker series, including Wicked Appetite. Janet studied painting at Douglass College, but that art form never quite fit, and she soon moved on to writing stories. She didn't have instant success: she collected a big box of rejection letters. As she puts it, "When the box was full I burned the whole damn thing, crammed myself into pantyhose and went to work for a temp agency." But after a few months of secretarial work, she managed to sell her first novel for $2,000. She immediately quit her job and started working full-time as a writer. After a dozen romance novels, she switched to mystery, and created Stephanie Plum. The rest is history. Janet's favorite exercise is shopping, and her drug of choice is Cheeze Doodles. She and her husband live in New Hampshire, in house with a view of the Connecticut River Valley.

I have read (and re-read) every Stephanie Plum novel to date, and (Sorry, Janet!) Hard Eight is just not up to snuff. I miss Grandma Mazur (she should at least threaten someone with a gun), I miss Joe (Stephanie's soul-mate!) and, although he's in it a lot, I miss Ranger! What have you done with him?!? He's still sexy, he's still hot as a pistol, but the passion that emanated off the page with his and Steph's flirtations in the last three books are strangely absent here ... while he fills the page and makes daydreamers of us all, for his and Steph's ultimate moment, it's as though he checked more than his gun at the door. I realize that Steph's deepest soul belongs to Morelli, but she's hot for Ranger ... don't give us cool reflections at a time that needs unbridled heat!

Stephanie's at it again, and it was worth the wait!! Yummy describes this book. I couldn't put it down, and had to re-read certain sections of the book because I couldn't get enough. My department at work consists of 4 women and 2 men--all the women are reading the series, and the men all know who Ranger and Morelli are! Can't wait for #9--Hurry up Janet!

About the 6th time I've read this particular book. A little creepier than usual yet I loved it as usual. Fast paced! Despite her Lucille Ball like antics, Stephanie always comes out ok, which I sincerely appreciate. Some unique twists I didn't expect, especially from her mom, not grandma this time. Very entertaining. Re-reading from this one thru 24, waiting on the next November release. I've read 1-7 at least 10 times each; 4 with Sally Sweet is my very favorite of the first 8 in the series. Always enjoy returning characters like Sally and Randy Briggs. Lula and Grandma Mazur always make me laugh out loud. I've introduced this series to several friends who also love these books. I only wish there were many other series that were this good, this entertaining, this unexpected, without too much sex or violence. GREAT series??

BOTTOM-LINE: Not bad, but not the best . PLOT OR PREMISE: Hard Eight (St. Martin's Press, 2010, ISBN/ASIN: B0017I1IZA, Plum (8)) is the eighth book in the Stephanie Plum series. In this one, she's looking for a missing mom and daughter whose grandmother could lose her house if the custody bond is violated. . WHAT I LIKED: The story has the typical range of secondary characters, and an addition of a hard-core female bounty hunter along the lines of Ranger. And a hysterical attempted vehicular murder of the Easter Bunny. . WHAT I DIDN'T LIKE: I don't much care for stories that involve moms/wives and children in jeopardy and being shuttled around like a tub of household effects in a move. Part of that is the ick factor, but part of it is the simplistic storyline and emotional range that is usually given to the characters -- the new "damsel in distress" plotline where someone has to come rescue them. I also didn't feel the intitial bad guys were fleshed out very well, particularly as they are easy to spot in fake masks and outfits, and the final boss felt like a comic book character. . DISCLOSURE: I received no compensation, not even a free copy, in exchange for this review. I am not personal friends with the author, nor do I follow her on social media.

Everyone in every Plum book has a last name except Lula. Shes always just Lula. ?????? Whats up with that?

I love Stephanie Plum novels! They are fast-paced, filled with wit and hilarious twists. I couldn't keep reading if Grandma Mazur wasn't there and Stphanie wasn't going back and forth on her love life! I also found myself loving how Evanovich incorporated Klowne into the mix- totally hysterical! Another A++
