This was my introduction to Janet Evanovich and Stephanie Plum. The story was light and fun, the mystery was...not so mysterious. This is not Sherlock Holmes. Luls was a great comedy relief, Ranger and Morelli were totally fixated on sex all the time. Every other thing they said had to do with jumping into bed with Stephanie. Is that how Evanovich sees men? I'm sure if those guys were really as hard-up as they sounded, they would be getting it somewhere else instead of waiting on Stephanie Plum to give them some.
I laughed at parts, rolled my eyes at other parts, and i'm interested in going back to experience earlier novels in the series. As I have not read any of the other books, I can't compare this to what went before, but as a stand-alone read, it was fun. The narrator had a good range of voices that helped bring the characters to life for me.
Stephanie Plum and the gang are back in rare form. This is entertaining, easy reading, moves quickly but still leaves you laughing at the high the antics of this group.
