The characters and description are great, nicely enhanced by fine narrative presentation. Just had to keep listening. This was my first experience with Miss Plum, a very enjoyable one.
There's simply nothing like a Janet Evanovich book narrated by Lorelei King. I would urge any member of Audible to add these books to their collection just for the fun of it. When I start listening to one of these books it is like a reunion with old friends. Stephanie, Grandma Mazur, Lula, Ranger and the other characters make the drive to work or exercise walk an enjoyable and humorous experience. Ms. King brings the characters alive. I listened to a few of Ms. Evanovich's books on audio and then read the ones I had not heard. Reading the books was almost as good as hearing them on audio because I had Ms. King's character voices in my head. There are sometimes tough decisions when purchasing an audio book but Twelve Sharp narrated by Ms. King is not one of them.
The laatest from Janet Evanovich giving us further antics of Stephanie Plum the accident-prone BEA (bond enforcement agent). By now, we all know these characters well. Joe, Ranger, Lula, Grandma Mazur... reading about them is enjoyable and comfortable. But this is not an intricate plot and not as much mayhem and peril as in past books. Also, how I wish that the reader who did the first 3 books was still reading! She was sooooo much better. The Stephanie fan will enjoy this but anticipate a better romp in the next!
I've read the previous eleven books in this series but this is my first "listen" and I loved it. Lorelei King did a great job of nattating "Twelve Sharp"! It's so easy to get lost in the Stephanie Plum character. Janet Evanovich is such a good story teller. Can't wait for number 13!

Okay....here's the deal..I want to BE Stephanie Plum..and that's it!
The men in her life are fabulous! The crisis in her daily life is hysterical. Her family is a hoot and Janet Evanivich keeps us smiling, laughing and excited all at the same time. After 11 on Top I waited with baited breath for 12 - didn't disappoint!
I simply loved it.
As always, Janet Evanovich has written with descriptive characters that we have gotten to know over the years. She has maintained that wonderful sense of humor. I was both entertained and captivated.
I've listened to all the Stephanie Plum books available on Audible and thouroughly enjoyed this one. Each of the characters continue to grow as we learn more about them. Please keep them coming Janet.
These characters continue to grow (although not older) and entertain. These are the best read books in the audio book business. Great performance by the author and the reader! 13 for good luck!
