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.

    "Not that hot!"

    After waiting a year for another dose of Stephanie Plum, I unplugged my MP3 Player and felt disappointed and vexed. Thirteen was only OK and lacked the usual spice and LOL (laugh-out-loud) qualities that Janet’s other books seem to have. Ranger didn't seem nearly as unattainable nor dangerous (two of his best qualities) and the *heat* that usually seems to sizzle just under the surface, didn't even seem to get the temp to lukewarm this time around. Stephanie's life seems to be getting a little more sedate, it almost seems she should just let got of the Ranger wanderlust, marry Joe, and have babies. JMHO.

    "Wonderful. as always"

    Well..whats to say....if you love Stephanie and Joe and Ranger and all the other delicious characters in her day to day existence you'll just love the ongoing soap opera saga that is her life !
    Since Janet says she always knows how her books will end I won't spoil it...even tho we always have our own opinions of what we'd like to have happen!!! tee Hee !
    and now...we wait, with baited breath for #14 !

    "Lean Mean thirteen"

    Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum's best book ever, laughed all day, I will have to listen to it again to hear the parts I was laughing too much that I missed some. I just wish it was longer. I can't wait for #14.

    "a delightful read"

    This was my first time reading a Stepanie Plum series book. I found it captivating and at times humorous. The combination styles between the author and narrator made for a great story. I will continue to purchase more in this series.

    "Lots of fun"

    I've read the previous Plum books, but this is the first one I've gotten on audio, and it was really enjoyable. The narrator did a really good job. My main complaint of this series has been a lack of character growth, but it seemed a bit better this time. That quibble aside, if you've read the previous books, you know what to expect -enjoyable and fun with laugh out loud spots. Ranger fans will be pleased (go Ranger) and Morelli also plays a large part. Looking forward to fourteen.

    "Better than the book"

    This story is one example of where hearing the story can be more entertaining than reading the story. The 13th in the Plum series, if you don't count the holiday editions, LMT doesn't answer all the questions from the 12th book and certainly leaves you wanting more. While the reader may be disappointed with being left hanging on some plot points, the author is definitely building the story. Can't wait to see where she takes it!

    "Lean Mean thirteen"

    I love Janet Evanoich's stories but Lorelei King is not a good narrator. CJ Critt is so much better but Janet decided not to use her any more.
    Therefore I cannot listen to her on audio any more
