    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.

    Story

    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!

    A Signature Performance: Tim Curry rescues Charles Dickens from the jaws of Disney with his one-of-a-kind performance of the treasured classic. Our listeners loved this version so much that it inspired our whole line of Signature Classics.

    Story

    Because everyone knows this story whether from reading it or seeing one of the 100's of movies based on this book I will just be reviewing the audiobook version I listened to narrated by, Tim Curry. I must admit to being a huge Tim Curry fan I will watch anything if he has a role in it so when I found this audiobook at audible I had to get it. I was not disappointed!

    Tim Curry’s narration is absolute perfection ‘nuff said!
