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)
Another great book by Janet E. The thing is, we like Stephanie. If you are looking for skin crawling creepyness or heart pounding terror and realism, go somewhere else. If you are looking for a good girl with a good heart trying to find her way in life, Stephanie Plum fills the bill. Lorelei King is a great reader, and brings Stephanie and her friends, foes, and family to life.

Just can't ever seem to get enough of the "Plum" series! Each one leaves me scrambling for another & wishing I didn't always wet myself laughing!!!!!
entertaining, funny, light
ranger -- because he's Stephanie's tall, dark, handsome, mysterious, dangerous sexual interest
She did a great job w/all characters -- way to go Lorelei!
I could never do that -- but, yes, I would like to.
Janet Evanovitch is up to her usual entertaining and humorous self! A great, light, fun read (or listen). I always enjoy one of the
Over all I've loved these books. I am a little disappointed with Step this time. Without giving it all away .. I feel she is a two-faced ho. She is so worried about Joe being with a past flame from high school and Ranger being with a very talented girl bounty hunter. She should talk. She should be put on a street corner. At least she could bring in some money to buy her cakes and cookies . It seems that's all she's good at lately. As for the two men in her life .. they both should send her packing and share the earnings from her street corner job.
Putting that aside the story was good with some laughs from time to time.
My Dr.'s wife recommended this author and audiobooks. Love the characters in this series. This narrator is the much better than the others used for this series.
This is not one that had me laughing hysterically every few minutes. And I definitely expect that from her. The narration is good, but again not as good as some of the other J. Evanovich books. And this one just doesn't have that almost slapstick justaposition of circumstances that has made me love Evanovich.
That said, it is still entertaining and better than 90% of the stuff out there.
I'm used to detective novels being highly plot driven (like John Grisham)-- so it's kind of nice to read a detective novel that draws from the "women's" style of being more personality-driven (like Helen Fielding). I like both kinds of books.
However, some of Evanovich's characters are much more believable than others making the book a big hit-and-miss.
I think this is somewhat aggravated by Lorelei King's narration. She almost acts out the different characters and does a really great job with some but others are a bit of a stretch. (the characters are very diverse!)
My other problem is that this book has a few too many characters for an audio book -- at least I have had trouble keeping track of them all.
If you have a good memory for names, then you'll probably have no problem. But, if you're like me, it's easy to loose track.
