Four to Score is another hilarious Janet Evanovich book, whereby the heroine gets into all kinds of scrapes. Her friend, Lula, who is a former prostitute, is usually her willing sidekick. I love Evanovich’s style of writing because no matter what kind of mood you are in, you always end up laughing because the characters in this book are so funny. At times, I have laughed until tears came to my eyes because it was either just hilarious or just downright ridiculous. In this book in particular, Stephanie is dealing with an ex-waitress who has been accused of stealing her ex-boyfriend’s car. Readers are led who an array of disastrous events that leaves cars dying a fiery death. I am especially intrigued by Ranger, Stephanie mentor who is also a bounty hunter, but unlike Stephanie, he is actually good. Of course, there is also Joe Morrelli, kind of an off again on again boyfriend of Stephanie’s, who is also a vice cop. I like how she portrays the differences between the two male characters but both are sexy and hot! Between dealing with the two of them, battling her arch nemesis, Joyce Barnhardt, readers are amazed (at least I was!) that she is still alive at the end of the book lol.
"Stephanie Plum" never fails to elicit a smile, a grin, an outright belly laugh. This book is a solid entry in a series that (to date) has 16 rollicking, riotous adventures. Literary candy, perhaps, but it tastes sooooo good!
