Mysterious men have a way of showing up in Stephanie Plum's apartment. When the shadowy Diesel appears, he has a task for Stephanie, and he's not taking no for an answer. Annie Hart is a "relationship expert" who is wanted for armed robbery and assault with a deadly weapon. Stephanie needs to find her, fast. Diesel knows where she is. So they make a deal: he'll help her get Annie if Stephanie plays matchmaker to several of Annie's most difficult clients. But someone wants to find Annie even more than Diesel and Stephanie. Someone with a nasty temper. And someone with "unmentionable" skills. Does Diesel know more than he's saying about Annie Hart? Does Diesel have secrets he's keeping from Stephanie and the two men in her life, Ranger and Morelli? With Stephanie Plum in over her head, things are sure to get a little dicey and a little explosive, Jersey style!

Cute short story, won't earn a literary award, but cute.
Oh yes, love her writing when it comes to the Stephanie Plum and Alex Barneby books.
Just the Plum books. The reading is getting better but don't care for the Diesel character.
None in any direction.
Reading allows me to travel through time, to visit the world's unique and stunning places, to become somebody I am not... It is glorious.
I have always loved the Plum series. The characters are so funny and I find myself laughing out loud. But this book didn't explore any of that great character development I have found in most of the series. The book bored me. No surprises. No belly laughs. I was bitterly disappointed.
There were none of the really great scenes with grandma. That is just one example of what left me wanting.
Yes, because it is wildly entertaining with love, humor, and mystery.
Yes, I never see what is coming in Evanovich's books.
Lorelei King is a masterful storyteller. I'm convinced her voices for each character are their true voices. She magically portrays men as well as women.
Not especially. I like to drag them out because I hate when Stephanie Plum books end.
Janet Evanovich is one of my favoriet authors. When I start one of her books I just cannot put it down until I am finished. If you haven't read any of her books, start at the beginning of the series and just keep reading.
Retired and living in Spain, I am an avid reader. Audible has added a new dimension as I can experience excellent readers/actors too.
The Audible version is not so much better as different. It speaks to a different mood. When I have time I love to read but I have become an addict of the writing of Janet Evanovich and the brilliant performances of Lorelei King. This is not just reading but truly theatrical - great stuff!
This is a 'holiday' volume as it is not in the numeric Plum series, but it still has all the hallmarks of a rolicking good tale with a surfeit of humour and great characterisation.
