Finding a kidnapped child is not Stephanie's thing. But Evelyn's grandmother lives next door to Stephanie's parents, and they're not about to see their neighbor lose her house because of the abduction.
Stephanie follows Annie and Evelyn's trail - and finds a lot more than she bargained for. Steven is somehow linked with the very scary Eddie Abruzzi. Trenton cop and on-again, off-again fiancé Joe Morelli, and Stephanie's mentor, Ranger, enter the scene, and because Stephanie needs Ranger's expertise, she accepts his help - even though it might mean paying some past debts.
Stephanie, Ranger, Lula, and Evelyn's lawyer/laundromat manager set out to find Annie. The search becomes a race among Stephanie's posse, the True Blue Bonds' agent, and the Abruzzi crew. And did we mention there's a killer rabbit on the loose?

"The things Evanovich does so well - family angst, sweet eroticism, stealth shopping, that stunning mix of terror and hilarity - are done better than ever here." (Booklist, Starred Review)
"Evanovich does it again, delivering an even more suspenseful and more outrageous turn with the unstoppable Stephanie." (Publishers Weekly)
Highly entertaining......Action packed, hilarious adventures of Stephanie Plum the incredibly inept bounty hunter. During this tale you will feel at home with the characters and their family life. I actually laughed out loud. ENJOY
It was my first Stephanie Plum book, and while it is far from the best audio book I have gotten, it certainly was amusing. I loved her character and especially Ranger. I will definitely check out more of her books, but would like to start with the first. I think you need to get to know Stephanie from the beginning.
Being of Hispanic dissent, the ZH sound the reader makes when Ranger is saying "you" drives me nuts. Why can't he just see you the regular way? That's all. I love these books.
Just all that chaos, one oops and oh well after the other. Murphy's Law has nothing on Stephanie and Lula.
The characters are seriously developed so as they can easily be recognized. Still don't like the way Ranger is portrayed. I thought he was Cuban American, key word American. He sounds like Scarface.
Laughing constantly. Between the funny and the stupid and just plain dumb, it had me in stitches.
Great narration and good job differentiating characters, but the voice of Ranger was so cheesy, it almost ruined the entire book for me.
Loved the book overall. So funny at times that I laughed out loud. I just struggled so much to get past the voice of Ranger. Even though the author depicts him to be such a masculine and sexy man of mystery, the voice that Lorelie King gives him made me barely like him.
This hard edged bounty hunter is read by a Connecticut College Ivy League girl. Like listening to Tiny Tim reading James Bond.
This is the first time I have read this author and have fallen in love with the Stephanie Plum series. I downloaded all 13 books and listened to them all within a week. I couldn’t wait to hear what adventures (and mishaps!) that Stephanie, Joe, Ranger, Lula and the rest of the gang would get into. I’ve read some of the previous reviews. I agree with some and disagree with others. I disagree that it gets old and complacent that Stephanie finds herself in the same situations in every book. It appears to me that Stephanie’s character is just one of those people that trouble and mayhem seem to find. I do agree that narrator Lori Petty is the voice of Stephanie. Narrator Debi Mazar’s accent is a bit heavy for audio books and then after all this Lorilei King takes over as narrator for the rest of the series. While Ms. King’s character voices are awesome (she has such a range!) her Stephanie voice has no Jersey accent at all and sound just a little too “blue blood”. Otherwise Ms. King is a joy to listen to. You will fall in love with Ranger and Joe! Both are too hot to handle……no wonder Stephanie can’t choose between the two!
Don’t let the narrator changes deter you from listening to this funny charming, and at times mysterious series. You won’t be disappointed if you’re looking for something light hearted to listen to.
I started the Plum series with book 9, then got 10, then grabbed book 4 from the library for a road trip. I loved book 9, got a little aggravated with Stephanie's ineptness in book 10, but fell so much in the grove with book 4 that I had to go buy book 8. After listening to book 8 - I had to listen to book 9 & 10 again and fell in love with the whole series. I would get the others if they were presented on Audible books in the UNABRIDGED versions.
Stephanie's ineptness threw me off the track at first because as a woman I'm an overachiever and have a hard time dealing with women that can't hold their own in their jobs. But once I relaxed out of that mind set, Stephanie became wonderful comic relief.
After all the serious & deep books that I read, the Plum series are wonderful diversions. If you haven't read book 8 and like Ranger - then this one is a MUST read.
This was the first Stephanie Plum novel I've "read." I didn't know what to expect but found myself entertained. The book was a little goofy, but I don't think it's meant to be very serious. Overall, it has decent entertainment value and is worth the listen. The narrator does a great job with her sexy sassy voice and inflection. I may have to try another Evanovich title.
This was a great way to kill 7 hours of commute time. Stephanie Plum with her family and cast of characters were delightful. The story was fast paced and had just enough sexual tension to keep it interesting. Her mishaps were both familiar and laugh-out-loud funny. And Gramma Mazur steals the show every time.
