I am an avid eclectic reader.
Lorelei King's narration of this series is what makes it all work. Stephanie Plum bond enforcement agent middle name is "trouble." Whatever will go wrong will when Stephanie and Lulu are on the job. This story kept me laughing from bridesmaid dress to car being blown up are vintage Stephanie. I wish Evanovich would have gone into more depth with Grandma Mazur going undercover at the hospital and assisted living facility. The story makes a pleasant break from more serious reading.
It was just the same story, I actually fell asleep while listening to it.
I am not sure, I think I would read the reviews before before buying.
All the characters were boring, even the nude beach part

I enjoy these books they are like potato chips you can’t eat just one but my problem this time is I think they are getting a bit stale, yes they still make me giggle and I love Lula & there wasn’t enough grandma and Stephanie still can’t make a decision between Morelli & Ranger and the first car to explode was within the first 5 minutes of the book, I kind of felt like ok now that’s out of the way on with the formula.
Don’t get me wrong I still enjoy these books and yes I will listen to the next one but I think it’s time for some forward movement this has started to feel like the same book over and over and if that’s all it’s going to be then I will go back and listen to these over and over because they are my feel good, get out of a funk, need something funny, go to books.
So why am I making it sound like I didn’t enjoy it? Because I would like to see some changes some growing up, some character building such as I learned something from my mistakes type of storyline or a final conclusion to the triangle that is a huge basis this book is based on. I truly believe she can still have both men in her life but she needs to choose which one…well I guess if she chooses Morelli her and Ranger can still be friends but not sure how well that would work if she chose Ranger not sure Morelli would be as forgiving. But still I think eventually it would all work out and I think it would help give the forward movement that this series needs to move it ahead.
As always Lorelei King is the voice of these characters her narration is like coming home to see old friends. This series & Lorelei’s narration is like comfort food!
3 ½ Stars
it has a great storyline
yes just seeing what mess they get into
she is the best reader
both stephanie and lula are great together but they are all wonderful to listen to
I really love the characters in this series but it is getting to be the same old stuff. Nothing exciting is happening to change their lives. Maybe it's time to quit, I'm not sure I'll be purchasing the next book. I think I could figure out what happens from the book summary next time. Very disappointed!
I've listened to (or read) all 19 books in this series, starting with One for the Money. Notorious Nineteen didn't disappoint! Bounty hunter Stephanie Plum seems to be edging slightly closer to resolving her difficulty choosing between the two hunks (Ranger and Morelli) but she still has her "issues" (cars blowing up, near death experiences, crazy eating habits) she should probably try to overcome before settling down. This book was on par with many of the past episodes and caused me to laugh out loud several times while listening. How many books can do that? If you have kept up with this series, definitely get this book. If you are new to this series, start from the beginning. Either way, enjoy!
It was exactly like the last 3 books...BORING and nothing surprised me or made me laugh.
Seems like a rehash, same ole story. Nothing new happened
Nothing...Ms King rocks! Her performance is dead on.
Nothing! I honeslty do not know W-H-Y I bother! Same OLD story different day. The only thing different about this book is that Ranger had more than two lines.... He had 5 in this one.
No. I am so over it. Flop #2.
disappointment. Janet maybe its time to give up stephanie plum series and start a Ranger one?
Move on to a different book. This one lacks substance.
I love these books and the current narrator. The narrator gives life and character to each person. The story seemed thrown together and the narrator seemed disinterested. I was let down from the usual excitement of a Stephanie Plum adventure
for the first time, the narrator sounded tired and lackluster
Great story and characters that made me laugh out loud
Great as always. If she ever stops being the narrator for the Stephanie Plum Novels. I will stop listening. No narrator can make these books as enjoyable as they are.
Briggs, He is such a stinker
This is a fun series, I have been listening to a lot of Connelly, Coulter and Lee Child which are also great books. I needed a break from all the serious stuff, and this was perfect.
