When I was browsing through goodreads last week trying to see which series had books out for me to catch up on, I was super excited that there were two books in the Stephanie Plum series! I seriously read them each in a day. That's what I love about them. They are hilarious, quick and then you are on to the next. It's a great in between books grab.
Description: Trenton, New Jersey’s favorite used-car dealer, Jimmy Poletti, was caught selling a lot more than used cars out of his dealerships. Now he’s out on bail and has missed his date in court, and bounty hunter Stephanie Plum is looking to bring him in. Leads are quickly turning into dead ends, and all too frequently into dead bodies. Even Joe Morelli, the city’s hottest cop, is struggling to find a clue to the suspected killer’s whereabouts. These are desperate times, and they call for desperate measures. So Stephanie is going to have to do something she really doesn’t want to do: protect former hospital security guard and general pain in her behind Randy Briggs. Briggs was picking up quick cash as Poletti’s bookkeeper and knows all his boss’s dirty secrets. Now Briggs is next on Poletti’s list of people to put six feet under.
To top things off, Ranger—resident security expert and Stephanie’s greatest temptation—has been the target of an assassination plot. He’s dodged the bullet this time, but if Ranger wants to survive the next attempt on his life, he’ll have to enlist Stephanie’s help and reveal a bit more of his mysterious past.
Death threats, highly trained assassins, highly untrained assassins, and Stark Street being overrun by a pack of feral Chihuahuas are all in a day’s work for Stephanie Plum. The real challenge is dealing with her Grandma Mazur’s wild bucket list. A boob job and getting revenge on Joe Morelli’s Grandma Bella can barely hold a candle to what’s number one on the list—but that’s top secret.
All of my complaints of the last few were taken care of with this book! There was more action, it was a tad more serious, a tad more action and it made me laugh a tad bit more! So there is hope! Yay. As always, I wish she would lose her morals and have a nice fling with Ranger. Morelli and her are a due a blow up fight. ;) I mean it's not like they are super serious. I suppose Morrelli could propose to her. ;)
Ranger smiled. “There are times when I seriously consider marrying you, but then I get yet another black mark on my path to enlightenment and forgiveness and I scratch marriage off my bucket list.” “Really? You think about marrying me?” “Marrying you might be extreme, but once in a while I think about sharing my closet.” “You have a really great closet.”
“Ranger stood and stretched, his black T-shirt rode up, and I caught a glimpse of two inches of brown skin and hard abs and almost had an orgasm. “Babe,” he said. “Are you okay?” “Yep. Why?” “You sort of moaned.” “Gas.” “Understandable.”
My favorite thing in this book was Grandma Mazur! She was killing me with her bucket list items. She wanted to take down a bad girl, 'get' Morelli's Grandma Bella and see Ranger naked. Seriously! Most hilarious grandma around!
What's the last funny book you read?
