    Trenton, New Jersey’s favorite used-car dealer, Jimmy Poletti, was caught selling a lot more than used cars out of his dealerships. Now he’s out on bail and has missed his date in court, and bounty hunter Stephanie Plum is looking to bring him in. Leads are quickly turning into dead ends, and all too frequently into dead bodies. Even Joe Morelli, the city’s hottest cop, is struggling to find a clue to the suspected killer’s whereabouts. These are desperate times, and they call for desperate measures.

    G. House Sr. says: "Stagnant Stephanie - Plodding Plot - Not great"
    "Fun, but...starting to become too predictable"

    Story
    Where does Top Secret Twenty-One rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It was fun to listen to, and I appreciated bringing in the character Randy Briggs as that broke things up, but these stories are becoming so formulaic, so repetitive (granny at the viewings, Lula at the cluck in a bucket, ranger naked in a bed, Joe continuing to be the guy who doesn't seem to care that his girlfriend has another love interest, an evil bad guy that ends up almost taking Stephanie out, etc... the pace and predicaments plugged into each section of the book showed up like clock-work, it's hard not to anticipate exactly what is going to happen next. Another-words, I'm getting bored and may not get the next one... but then again, I may.

    I appreciated the little changes, the new attitude for the mother, in re: a household chore. The travel to Atlantic City and New York was also good.

  • Vex, Hex, Smash, Smooch: Let Verbs Power Your Writing

    Story
    (7)

    Constance Hale, the best-selling author of Sin and Syntax, zooms in on the colorful world of verbs. Synthesizing the pedagogical and the popular, the scholarly and the scandalous, Hale combines the wit of Bill Bryson with the practical wisdom of William Zinsser. She marches through linguistic history to paint a layered picture of our language - from before it really existed to the quirky usages we see online today. She warns about habits to avoid and inspires with samples of brilliant writing.

    G. House Sr. says: "Chafe, curse, demolish, adore – I heart the book"
    "Too literary for me."

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Author spends too much time waxing poetically about verbs. Not my cup of tea. But if you're a word lover - a trivia maven - a lover of metaphor and quotes, then you might really like this book.
