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!

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

    "Decent but not the best"

    The last 2 books have been a bit disappointing but still an enjoyable great quick read with a few laughs. Personally I like the love triangle between Stephanie, Morelli and Ranger and this book left me a bit disappointed with that. It was good for the typical laughs and entertaining characters.

    "Gut wrenching hilarity"

    This book is entirely implausible. The story line is crazy, the characters are nuts and the entire thing is thoroughly and unequivocally one of Janet Evanovich's funniest books involving Stephanie Plum. From Lula’s “just one” diet to Grandma Mazur’s broken foot and Mooner’s Hobbit Con, I thought I was going to laugh myself silly. I love the way Lorelei King brings the characters to life. My only complaint is that it ended too soon.

    "Remember C.J. Critt?"

    Has anyone ever listened to CJ Critt narrate these? The audiobooks (tapes) I rented from my library were read by her. After the 7th they used Loreli. I have had a hard time adjusting to the different narrator. Anyone else experience this?

    "Okay"

    Another funny installment to the series. Stephanie is giving signals that she is tired of being a bounty hunter. I wonder if that will go anywhere in future novels. I wonder if future novels will go anywhere. Other than the little mystery, there is not much going on - no character growth, nothing is resolved in Stephanie's personal life, etc.

    SPOILER ALERT!!! She almost has sex with Ranger, but then doesn't. She's fighting with Morelli again.

    Its really just same old same old and it was really kind of short.

    "Wait until this book goes on sale"

    Weak plot, weak characterization, this tome is even missing the sexual pull between Stephanie and Ranger / Stephanie and Joe. Janet it may be time to hang up Plum's gun.

    "LOL Laughed a lot"

    Once again Stephanie and Lulu manage to get themselves in more trouble than a box of puppies. Stephanie manages to keep her love-life hot. Some of the scenes are so absurd they made us laugh out loud. I 'm looking forward to 17,18, 19 and 20...

    "Not Sizzling"

    I was a bit disappointed in this one. There just didn't seem to be enough going on to keep me interested.

    "Always entertaining"

    I've never been disappointed by this series and this book was no exception. I found myself laughing out loud several times. I just love Lula's attitude! I hope Janet Evanovich continues these books, I would miss them very much if they stopped. Team Ranger all the way!

    "Sizzling Sixteen"

    The performance reading of this book was great. Characters were done extremely well and with a lot of personality. The story, however, was quite ridiculous and made it difficult to listen to this book in its entirety.

    "Entertaining"

    I am probably in the minority but here goes. I am starting to think that Ms Plum and her antics are predictable and tedious. I mean, this is a grown woman and she can't decide between two men in her life. She endangers her grandmother's life on a regular basis and she is just immature! The reason I gave this book 3 out of 5 is we weren't subjected to her ever changing mind switches between the two handsome men. There were a few times when she had enteractions with them but it wasn't as sappy as other books and I liked that for the most part, she was an independent' woman. High time, too, I mean, what is she? Twenty-seven and not from an affluent family. I laughed a lot and shook my head at other times but it was a book that I enjoyed for the 5 plus hours of listening.
