I expected more, this one lacked though/plot she just has Stephanie sleeping around and uses that to fill the pages instead of a plot.
Stephanie Plum and all her friends are my favorite characters ever! This lastest book is the funniest one yet! And, Lorelei King is the best narrator around. The voices she has for the characters are the greatest. I can't wait for the next Stephanie Plum book.
I like the series, it is easy listening and not overly thought provoking.
One thing however, is that the Lula schtick is getting old. We get it already. She is a big woman, still dresses like her old occupation and eats like there is no tomorrow. Its the same dialogue as the previous 16.
Maybe Lula needs to go away for a while and a new character brought in as a sidekick.
Janet Evanovich knocked it out of the park with her last Stephanie Plum novel. I'm hook all over again and can't wait until the next book is released. I love all the characters and feel like I know all the characters personally.
A tad predictable but well done just the same! Was hoping for more, but still entraining. Characters are still great and the narrator is excellent!
New animal both grandmas. Steph is back in action. Where can I get some of that vardo. I was worried after 16 thought janet had slowed down but 17 is right back on track. great listen great actions. Lula is in prime form. Mooners got his job on. Ranger Ranger Ranger.
I always enjoy the Stephanie Plum novels because I love the lively characters. However, the murderer in this one was a little predictable. I knew who it was immediately... I'd like for Janet to keep me guessing a little bit in the next one. Either way, I still enjoyed the journey and eagerly await number 18!

99% of all of Janet eEvanovich's Stephanie Plum series have zany, crack-up scenes. This one did not - it was flat. It is as if she had a ghost writer on this one. Not the usual humor, the funny sayings. If it was Janet writing this one, it is as if she did it out of obligation, nothing else. The plot was scattered, the characters were disjointed. The characteristics of the characters were flat - no smokin' hot ranger, no Italian Stallion, no crack-up Grandma, even Stephanie's father was uncharacteristically talkative. Glad I didn't buy anything but the audio and kindle release. Sad to see this series stoop to this level. Maybe it is time for Stephanie to retire. I am giving this book 3 stars, but really, it is between 2 and 3 stars.
