Janet Evanovich and her Stephanie Plum series is brilliant. Totally hilarious and worth its weight in gold.
Stephanie Plum, a bounty hunter with attitude and an interesting fashion sense runs around with her sidekick Lula in attempt to catch and haul in criminals that have missed their court date.
Working for Vinnie, is interesting to say the least. Vinnie is anything but vanilla. His lifestyle and preference in partners although highly abnormal by society’s standards, I find intriguing and laughable. If you don’t understand something .. might as well poke and prod at it until it makes some kind of sense.
It was rumored that Vinnie had once been in love with a duck. And Joyce was said to be fond of large dogs. But somehow, the thought of them together was even more horrible.
Curiously finding herself with more roommates than she can handle, her Grandma Mazur and a stoner named Mooner, exhaustion rips through her and the only thing to keep her focussed is the food on the table, and the expectation that eventually her sex life will find its way back into her pants.
“Hey dude,” he said, “your granny fixed me some pancakes. You’re, like, so lucky to have your granny living with you. She’s totally the bomb, dude.”
Mooner is a character to say the least.
Stephanie’s relationship with Ranger takes an interesting turn. The growing attraction between them leaves them rolling around on her apartment floor, knee-deep in kisses and his roaming hands .. at least until Mazur busts out of the bedroom. Saved by Grandma or damned for days of mental lusting?
Between Morelli, Grandma and Ranger, Stephanie really has her hands full in this book. Mobsters jumping into her car to escape the freak show of a family, to Star Trek riots, this book is filled with tons of funny scenes.
With that said, I really didn’t find myself tempted to read this book. Sure, as hilarious as the others, filled with plots that leave your toes tingling, you would assume I’d get my kicks off. But for some reason, it really didn’t float my boat.
I’m not giving this book a bad review. Evanovich is awesome, and her books are phenomenal. I just didn’t care much for this one 🙂
I do recommend this book to anyone needing a laugh. If you’re reading this series, then of course this is a MUST READ! Mild sexual content and violence. Dead bloody bodies but with little detail for the sensitive minds.
I’m looking forward to the next book of this series, Seven Up!
