High Five (Stephanie Plum Series #5) by Janet Evanovich

Out of bail skippers and rent money, Stephanie Plum throws caution to the wind and follows in the entrepreneurial bootsteps of Super Bounty Hunter, Ranger, engaging in morally correct and marginally legal enterprises. So, a scumball blows himself to smithereens on her first day of policing a crack house and the sheik she was chauffeuring stole the limo. But hey, nobody's perfect! Anyway, Stephanie has other things on her mind. Her mother wants her to find Uncle Fred who's missing after arguing with his garbage company; homicidal rapist Benito Ramirez is back, quoting scripture and stalking Stephanie; vice cop Joe Morelli has a box of condoms with Stephanie's name on it; and Stephanie's afraid Ranger has his finger on her trigger. The whole gang's here for mirth and mayhem in Janet Evanovich's High Five. Read at your own risk in public places.

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 take the bus to and from work everyday and ALWAYS have my nose stuck in a book. I read High Five first of all of Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series and laughed all the way to work. People kept looking at me and a few even stopped me to see what I was reading. I have to say, of all of Janet's Plum series, Two for the Dough was my favorite with High Five coming in second.

I continue to read this series because it is a fun, easy read. The character development (both good and bad guys) throughout the series is great. A previous reviewer of the series commented that the plot is quite repetitive from book to book. It is true: bounty hunter is broke and hungy, bounty hunter gets trivial but humorous cases and also gets involved over her head in a more serious case where she is shot at or her car is blown up or apartment ransacked or set on fire. Bounty hunter has on and off again relationship and is toying with a second affair. Bounty hunter solves cases, eats and all ends well. Despite the same plot, the author writes with great wit and sense of humor that keeps me engaged in the series. I alternate these books with heavier reading.

Series was recommended by my doctor and I am so glad she did. Stephanie Plum is an accident waiting to happen in every situation. I laughed out loud when I read this book. Planning on reading the whole series.

I always know when I begin a new book in the Stephanie Plum series that I will be highly entertained. I find myself laughing out loud every page or two! This series of books is a nice break from more serious reading. The books are short, the characters hilarious and interesting. I will continue to read each book in the series, as long as Janet Evanovich keeps writing them.

Evanovich pens another delightful romp with Stephanie Plum through Trenton, New Jersey with "High Five." Uncle Fred has gone missing and it's slow at the bond agency so Stephanie decides to help out and look for her uncle. Unfortunately, all she gets is trouble. Stephanie meets with Aunt Mabel and learns Fred was in a dispute with the garbage company. She discovers Fred was cheap, a cheater, and had photos of a dead person. She reports them to the police. Soon she's being followed by a bookie named "Bunchy" who wants to find Fred, too. When she finally brings in a bail jumper named "Briggs," she's forced to take him into her house when his is wrecked. Lula comes back to help Stephanie's investigations and Grandma Mazur tucks her gun into her handbag for an assist as well. Ranger offers Stephanie work to get by and both discover an attraction. Can Stephanie find out what happened to Uncle Fred before more people die at the garbage company? Evanovich's writing is crisp, witty, and easy to read. The narrative will make you smile and then have you anxious about what's going to happen next. The supporting cast consists of endearing characters that will have you cheering for them. Stephanie is a very likeable heroine, admirable to a fault, still struggling to find her way, but it's reassuring to know she's on the right path. "High Five" is another excellent story and a "must read" in the Stephanie Plum series. It's full of smiles, laughs, and nonstop action. I highly recommend this book.
