In the latest venture of the Stephanie Plum series, Stephanie's back to work as a bounty hunter and teaming up with former filing clerk Lula when Lula isn't singing with the rock band, What. Joe Morelli's still around as the hot boyfriend and mystery man Ranger's off to Miami. Things go haywire when a woman who claims to be Ranger's wife shows up and shoots at Stephanie. Then Ranger disappears after he is accused of kidnapping his little girl, who lives with her mother and stepfather in Miami. When the woman who claims to be Ranger's wife is murdered, Stephanie's out to prove Ranger's innocence, unaware she's attracted the attention of a Ranger wannabe.
Anything goes and a lot happens with this 12th installment. Janet Evanovich proves herself the master of wit with dialogue to die for and plenty of humor topped with loads of action. The triangle between Stephanie, Morelli, and Ranger continues but a new relationship has been added to the mix: Lula and Tank, Ranger's number one man. Highly recommended.

There is a plot, of course, but I really don't think that anyone cares about the plot as long as they can read about Stephanie's misadventures and her supporting cast of … more
In yet another uproariously funny installment of the Plum series, our gal Steph finds herself being drawn deeper into the life of the hot Ranger more than she ever thought possible; this time, a psychopathic criminal named Scrog wants to BE Ranger. After kidnapping Ranger's daughter Julie, all Scrog needs is Stephanie by his side to complete the picture. But of course, in order for Scrog to really BE Ranger, there can no longer be a real Ranger...... This may be the best of the Plums … more
