    Story
    (1572)

    After a slow summer of chasing low-level skips for her cousin Vinnie's bail bonds agency, Stephanie Plum finally lands an assignment that could put her checkbook back in the black. Geoffrey Cubbin, facing trial for embezzling millions from Trenton's premier assisted-living facility, has mysteriously vanished from the hospital after an emergency appendectomy. Now it's on Stephanie to track down the con man. Unfortunately, Cubbin has disappeared without a trace, a witness, or his money-hungry wife. Rumors are stirring that he must have had help with the daring escape...or that maybe he never made it out of his room alive.

    G. House Sr. says: "Tedious Formulaic with same-old same-old"
    "Stephanie is a mess again."

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This is a good listen. Stephanie is in trouble again and cars are blowing up around her.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    You can never be sure who will be captured and who will get away again and again.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When she books passage to Hawaii for a skip and his icon.


    Any additional comments?

    I hope Stephanie will finally figure out that she should marry Joe. She would be great as a pregnant bounty hunter.

    Would you listen to Dead Ever After again? Why?

    I would listen to this again because in the end, it seems that everyone gets what they really want, or need.

    That the relationship between Sookie and Sam is finally resolved.


    What about Johanna Parker’s performance did you like?

    Johanna Parker is one of my favorite readers.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I did not want to stop listening to this book. However, life and work made me stop my listening several times. I could not wait to get back to the story.


    Any additional comments?

    Is it really the end. Will there be some short stories that will continue where this book left off for Eric, Pam, Sookie, Sam or Hunter. I hope so.

    Where does Living Dead in Dallas rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This book makes my top ten "Listen to Again" list.

    Sam is still there for Sookie. But even more, Sookie is there for her home town, even if they think she is "Crazy Sookie"


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Eric helps Sookie get the answers to Lafayette's murder. You can see that her defenses are falling. And Eric just keeps pushing to get Sookie to "yield".


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Sookie understands that Bill is a "hunter" by nature. That he will kill if threatened. When she knows that she can't change this but must accept it.

    In this book, Sookie learns more ugly truths about the humans and supernaturals in her town. However, she still keeps her sweet and innocent nature.
