Stephanie Plum has finally had enough. She’s tired of being shot at and having her cars blown up and having the bad guys slam her around. So she turns in her notice and starts looking for a safer job. But this is Stephanie Plum we’re talking about here; trouble seems to follow her wherever she goes. And when Stephanie stops hunting the bad guys, they don’t necessarily stop hunting her.
This is Stephanie Plum! It goes without saying that she and Lula and Grandma Mazur are going to have some insanely funny moments. It also goes without saying that Stephanie is going to have some extremely…um, romantic? lusty? naughty? all of the above?… moments with Morelli or Ranger. You either like the formula or you don’t.
However, this entry wasn’t quite as solid as most of the series for me. Don’t get me wrong. It was just as quirky and laugh-out-loud funny as I expected. The love triangle is just as steamy. But that’s where my problem lies.
I’m starting to feel bad for Morelli and Ranger. I mean, I love reading about them. *Yum* 😋 But after 11 books, I wish Stephanie would just pick one already! I know, I know, that would undermine a lot of the books’ structure. But let’s give these poor guys a break! They’ve been waiting around on her to make up her mind for years! If I knew I wouldn’t miss them, I’d even be advocating for both of them to just move on and give up on her. If she can’t choose, she obviously doesn’t really want either of them.
Regardless, I will always recommend this for anyone who enjoys their mysteries with a heaping dose of oddball characters with a penchant for some kooky antics. I will definitely be sticking with this series!
