Publisher's Summary

Trenton, New Jersey, bounty hunter Stephanie Plum has inherited a "lucky" bottle from her Uncle Pip. Problem is, Uncle Pip didn't specify if the bottle brought good luck or bad luck....

Bad Luck:

Vinnie, of Vincent Plum Bail Bonds, has run up a gambling debt of $786,000 with mobster Bobby Sunflower and is being held until the cash can be produced. Nobody else will pay to get Vinnie back, leaving it up to Stephanie, office manager Connie, and file clerk Lula to raise the money if they want to save their jobs.

Good Luck:

Being in the business of tracking down people, Stephanie, Lula, and Connie have an advantage in finding Vinnie. If they can rescue him, it will buy them some time to raise the cash.

Bad Luck:

Finding a safe place to hide Vinnie turns out to be harder than raising $786,000. Vinnie's messing up Mooner's vibe, running up pay-per-view porn charges in Ranger's apartment, and making Stephanie question genetics.

Good Luck:

Between a bonds office yard sale that has the entire Burg turning out, Mooner's Hobbit-Con charity event, and Uncle Pip's lucky bottle, they just might raise enough money to save the business, and Vinnie, from ruin.

Bad Luck:

Saving Vincent Plum Bail Bonds means Stephanie can keep being a bounty hunter. In Trenton, this involves hunting down a man wanted for polygamy, a turnpike toilet paper bandit, and a drug dealer with a pet alligator named Mr. Jingles.

Good Luck:

The job of bounty hunter comes with perks in the guise of Trenton's hottest cop, Joe Morelli, and the dark and dangerous security expert, Ranger. With any luck at all, Uncle Pip's lucky bottle will have Stephanie getting lucky - the only question is...with whom?

Sizzling Sixteen - so hot, it might spontaneously combust!

    "disappointed"

    Just nothing like the earlier books .A shame as I always loved the books in this series but last few were not anywhere near as good and this was just not something I wanted to even finish listening to..Wish I had waited would not get it given a second chance.

    Story
    "A Stephanie Plum adventure puts you in a good mood"
    If you could sum up Sizzling Sixteen in three words, what would they be?

    It is book 16, the characters are familiar, established, and yes still funny. Evanovich's writing and King's delivery makes for good entertainment and even manages to make me laugh out loud.
    If you have never read one of Stephanie Plum adventures go to the beginning (One for the Money) and fall for this slightly insane woman bounty hunter who has terrible (but funny) luck with cars, truly insane friends, family and criminals.

    Story
    "Lorelei King is Like an Old Friend"

    I have listened to Lorelei King narrate this series long enough that she feels like and old friend. While there are certainly struggles for any author to keep a series fresh across this many titles (16 + 4 Between the Numbers), I still feel like the characters are worth a visit. I think the best part of these books is the humanity of the characters and their daily struggles.

    This particular installment focuses on Vinny, a degenerate bail bondsman that has run up a significant gambling debt and must "face the music." It's not my favorite of the series, but there are the trademark things to love, a little humor, some tenderness, and plenty of romantic tension.

    If you are a fan of this series ... you will recognize the things you love about Stephanie and the gang!

    "Not up to her usual hillarious story"

    I had waited eagerly for this book. I am now about half way through. Janet take a vacation from writing and regain your delightful twists and turns. I can't believe the same person wrote the dumpster dive in a previous book. Stephanie deserves better! Bring her back to life.

    "Verbiage I could live without"

    I struggled through the end and warned my friends not to buy the hard cover book, but wait for the paperback if they still want to read it. I was very disappointed in the explicit "game" language for the convention. Janet, you have always been very good with sexual implications, but being explicit is not the style of writing we want from you. Sixteen lacked interaction between Stephanie, Ranger, and Joe. So sad...

    "Very funny"

    I read some of the reviews which panned this episode as not up to par. I didn't find that to be the case, but I'm not very demanding in my taste. I was looking for a light-hearted romp and this one delivers--perhaps not as well as my favorite to date--volume 12--but that one was a bladder-buster, maybe because I was on a long, boring trip up I-95. If you like Stephanie and Lula, and you're willing to accept that you're not going to get War and Peace with a laugh-track, you'll enjoy Sizzling Sixteen.
