Before Stephanie can even step foot off Flight 127, Hawaii to Newark, she’s knee deep in trouble. Her dream vacation turned into a nightmare, and she’s flying back to New Jersey solo. Worse still, her seatmate never returned to the plane after the L.A. layover. Now he’s dead, in a garbage can, waiting for curbside pickup. His killer could be anyone. And a ragtag collection of thugs and psychos, not to mention the FBI, are all looking for a photograph the dead man was supposed to be carrying.
Only one other person has seen the missing photo: Stephanie Plum. Now she’s the target, and she doesn’t intend to end up in a garbage can. With the help of an FBI sketch artist, Stephanie re-creates the person in the photo. Unfortunately, the first sketch turns out to look like Tom Cruise, and the second sketch like Ashton Kutcher. Until Stephanie can improve her descriptive skills, she’ll need to watch her back.
Over at the bail bonds agency, things are going from bad to worse. The bonds bus serving as Vinnie’s temporary HQ goes up in smoke. Stephanie’s wheelman, Lula, falls in love with their largest skip yet. Lifetime arch nemesis Joyce Barnhardt moves into Stephanie’s apartment. And everyone wants to know what happened in Hawaii.
Morelli, Trenton’s hottest cop, isn’t talking about Hawaii. Ranger, the man of mystery, isn’t talking about Hawaii. And all Stephanie is willing to say about her Hawaiian vacation is... it’s complicated.
Jersey girl: listen to more in the Stephanie Plum series.

Janet Evanovish writes in a wonderfully humerous way. Her Stephanie Plum novels are meant to be read not heard. I always find myself laughing when I read her books. I made a mistake by purchasing this audiobook. This narrator is terrible. Her voice is flat and she absolutely does no justice to this book or the author.
Her voice is flat and not pleasant to listen to
I love the author and all of her books. I just didn't enjoy the audiobook. I was unable to listen past the first 10 minutes
No, this isn't the best book ever. It's pretty standard for the Stephanie Plum series...not a spectacular storyline, but there was enough action and humor to keep me listening. I really enjoy Lorelei King's narration of Stephanie and the other characters. I've read and/or listened to all the other books in the series, and this one wasn't one of my absolute favorites. Still, diving into a Stephanie Plum story always gets me laughing, and sometimes that's just what I need. If you're looking for a complicated, realistic story, look elsewhere. If you're just looking for a good time, give it a try.
It was a pretty standard Stephanie Plum novel, not the funniest, not the worst. Still love Lorelei King as narrator - she captures the madness that is Stephanie Plum. This is a book about the girls in the series so if you are looking for Ranger or Joe, they only make bit appearances.
Yes! And 2 more times after!! This one is up there with the first 4 books of the series.
Stephanie!! I'm so happy that J.E. finally gave her some back bone about men! Happy that Joe and Ranger have shown what they have wanted to do to each other. When she lost her car multiple times to the same FTA. :-) Oh, the F.B.I parking lot.
When she thought about the Hawaii episode
Yes and Laughed
Keep them coming. I like the fact that Joe, Ranger and Stephanie had battle bruises before the middle of the book.
I love Stephanie Plum. Janet Evanovich is always at the top of her game. And Lorelei King is so good, I want to be her when I grow up.
I LOVE ALL JANET EVANOVICH BOOKS ESPECIALL THE PLUM SERIES. I WISH SHE COULD PRODUCE TWO PLUM BOOKS A YEAR, BUT GOOD ONES. LOVE LOVE LOVE JANET!
