Two Rangers?

Once again, the life of bounty hunter Stephanie Plum becomes complicated, both seriously and comicly. This series is very lighthearted, with oddball characters practically rolling off the pages, and the laughs just rolling out of the reader's mouth. The author's comic timing and sense of humorous wordplay are absolutely perfect. 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 loonies. I enjoy every one of these books, and they all end too soon for me!

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 …

Yes, I'm a Janet Evanovich/Stephanie Plum fan. I look forward to each new installment in this series. The latest is Twelve Sharp, and I finally made it to the top of the hold list at the local library. And as always, it was well worth the wait. My only complaint is that I finish them too quickly...    Stephanie, Lula, Morelli, and Ranger are back at it again... running down bail jumpers and criminals in "the Burg". Ranger goes "off-line" down to Miami to take care of some bad …

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 …

About this book

Wiki

The mixture of slapstick and gunplay that has put Evanovich's series about a sassy, less than competent New Jersey bounty hunter at the top of bestseller lists once again works its magic in Stephanie Plum's latest caper (after 2005'sEleven on Top). Stephanie, who freely admits her failings as a hunter of fugitives, faces a growing work backlog that threatens the continued existence of her job. Her clumsy efforts to clear some cases, along with the help of her outrageous colleague, Lula, result only in their adding another sad sack to the office payroll—a forlorn shoe salesman who's talked off a ledge by Stephanie's offer of a position as file clerk. Stephanie's ambivalence toward the two men in her life becomes harder to maintain when one of them, the mysterious Ranger, is accused of kidnapping his own daughter. Countless over-the-top scenes, including one at a funeral parlor, will delight longtime fans.
