Publisher's Summary

From coast to coast and around the world, Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum novels continue to make best-selling history each summer. In the 13th book in the series, the stakes are raised even higher as Stephanie Plum finds herself in her most dangerous, hilarious, hottest, chase yet. With her lovable, offbeat family along for the ride (as well as a few new faces), there's no doubt that the Stephanie Plum novels put the "fun" in dysfunctional. And it's clear to see why they're called "Hot Stuff" by the New York Times - and why Evanovich herself is called "the master".

Jersey girl: listen to more in the Stephanie Plum series.

    "Disappointing"

    I was very disappointed with this book. It feels like the author phoned this one in. I'm a huge fan of the series, but this one just falls flat. There was very little plot and the dialog which is usually so great had a few laughs but that's about it. Come on Janet, let's put some effort into the next one...please!

    "Another lite read"

    Further adventures of Stephanie Plum, and more of the same from Evanovich. As usual, the bad guys are cardboard cutouts, and unusually, especially inept. An entertaining, and unsurprising, read.

    "Is it Just Me?"

    or has the series gone south? I used to crack up constantly with the first several books, but this one has nothing new to add, very little plot, no character development, and it's not that funny -- IMHO.

    I also am really tired of the poor femme always have to call one of her he-men for help.

    "Meh."

    When I first picked up One for the Money, I was spellbound. That spell lasted all the way through book eleven, through the fresh viewpoint and knee slapping hilarity that Evanovich has put into the Stephanie Plum series.

    Unfortunately, around book twelve, the spell began to fade, and book thirteen is just more of the same. If you're still in thrall, you should definitely pick up this book and listen to it immediately. If, however, you're getting rather bored with Stephanie, this isn't going to surprise or amaze you.

    "I'll read the print"

    I have to say honestly that I didn't finish this book. I managed to get through 7 minutes and 38 seconds before I was incapable of listening to the horrible voice characterizations. This is the first Stephanie Plum I've listened to but have read all books leading up to it in print. While the reader's narration and Plum voice were fine the characters of Connie and Lula were awful. Being such a fan I was unable to take Lula sounding like a bad black male voice and Connie sounding like some Midwest nosy neighbor as opposed to an Italian Jersey lady. I'm sad that I wasted the credit and even sadder that I have to go and buy the book as well.

    "Funniest yet..."

    This was my first audiobook in the Plum series so it took some getting used to but overall was done nicely. The comical situations were all very unique and therefore more hysterical than ever. The Ranger/Morelli saga is getting a little old but it works for the plot. All I can say is Enjoy!

    "The Best!"

    I laugh my butt off everytime. Ms Evanovich is the greates and Lorelei King is the best! As far as I'm concerned it's the best. Ms Evanovich has not let me down yet when it comes to the Stephanie Plum character! Keep them coming!

    "She pegged the cable companies workers didn't she?"

    It was not safe for me to dri e when the cable guy came into the conversation. Apparently the feeling is mutual throughout the states. Hate to be a cable person.

    "Doesn't disappoint"
    If you could sum up Lean Mean Thirteen in three words, what would they be?

    This series is just a fun, light read. Laugh out loud funny. My 20+ something daughter and her friends have listened to part with me and ask for more! (They'd rather do a craft and listen to the book with me than watch a movie - go figure!) I also appreciate that there is some heat with Stephanie's love interests but nothing that would send me from the room when listening in mixed company!


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Not really on the edge of my seat, but the story moves along quickly and keeps you wondering what antics Stephanie and Lola will get up to next.


    What about Lorelei King’s performance did you like?

    Excellent performance, very distinct characterizations.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Laugh out loud funny
