What the Critics Say

“What do the New Jersey Mob, bingo, and giraffes have in common? Stephanie Plum and crew. Narrator Lorelei King performs the latest zany antics of Stephanie, Lula, and Connie, along with some sizzling smooches from Morelli and the ever hot Ranger. As Plum goes after the bail-jumping Uncle Sunny, a mobster who is Morelli's godfather, King's performance kicks into high gear, switching accents from Jersey to Italian without a hitch. Sleuthing for Stephanie includes a little black dress, funerals, and bingo. And the giraffe? He's the comic relief in this silly mystery flawlessly delivered King with a different voice for each character--except the giraffe. Combine King's vocal acting with Stephanie's adventures, and you laugh through the whole audiobook.” (AudioFile)

    "Super heroine super sidekick"

    Love everything about the Stephanie Plum series and this was no different! Gramma is always a hoot and The author knows people from all walks of life to be able to let us always have little glimpses of ourselves, coworkers or our own family.

    "Needed my fix"

    Boycotted her last few novels as I was disappointed in the same old, same old. Still no resolve with her love interests or job, etc. However, I found I could not live without Lula and Grandma. Their dialogue is so hilarious that I decided to overlook the lame existence of the rest of it. Now I am addicted again and await No. 23.

    "Another fun read."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this series to a friend they are always fun and exciting, even when predictable.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Lula is the best character, I want to be her friend in real life. Well and ranger, I want to be him.


    What does Lorelei King bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She does a Jersey accent perfectly.


    Any additional comments?

    These books are a little predictable at times, but always fun. They are like the pop music of literature! You want to be a part of the world. I want to have dinner with Janet and get inside her mind so that I could see what is next.

    "Grandma & Lula At Their Best"

    There are not many authors who have the talent to keep a series fresh and entertaining after twenty books, but Janet Evanovich is one of them. Takedown Twenty is, by far, my favorite of the entire series. I thoroughly enjoyed the story and the one-liners delivered by Lula and Grandma Mazur kept me in stitches. I really hope this book is a sign that we will see more of Lula and Grandma in future books. I love Stephanie and the hot mess that is her life and I adore Ranger and Morelli, but Lula and Grandma are what keep me coming back for more. Imagining what these two wonderful characters will get Stephanie into next doesn’t come close to what Ms. Evanovich pulls out of her hat.

    The plot was entertaining and kept me interested all the way through the story. There were several interesting twists and turns that kept guessing the identity of the killer difficult and surprised me when it was revealed who it was. Numerous Ranger moments kept the heat turned up and although I don’t see Stephanie ending up with Ranger, I thoroughly enjoy their interactions.

    Fans of the Stephanie Plum series should enjoy this offering and mark this book as a series favorite. If you are new to the series, you have a lot of catching up to do. This series is best read in order and I promise you will enjoy every bit of it.

    "Stronger role for Grandma Mazaur in this book"

    I've always liked Grandma Mazaur, and even more so I this book. She has a stronger role than in the past. Stephanie tries life as a butcher when she tires of being chanced by killers and tossed off a bridge into a river. The butcher has a secret and Stephanie finds it.

    "It's Time for Some Character Development"

    Takedown Twenty was a disappointment. The plot was a rehash of the old plots with the surreal and stupid giraffe thrown in.....why I'm not sure.

    I like Stephanie a lot, but she and all the characters are becoming shallow cliches. I would like to see just who her dad and mom really are. It would be great to here Grandma's story - maybe she and Stephanie could spend some time in the dark, held hostage and really get to know each other, and let us get to know them too. We need to find out about Ranger's karma repair, why it's needed and what he is doing to repair it. Lula is awesome - maybe she needs to find a little girl on the street that she can rescue and adopt..... there is a lot to be done, but we are getting a rehash with each new book. Kind of sad that there is so much potential.

    "Who doesn't love Stephanie"
    Would you listen to Takedown Twenty again? Why?

    I'd listen again and again. The narrator is perfect and I feel like I live in the burbs! I want Lula to be my best friend.


    What about Lorelei King’s performance did you like?

    The books wouldn't be the same without Lorelei King!


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

    They are always amusing albeit a little predictable


    Any additional comments?

    There's a whole new set of adventures if you let her get married and have a kid or two! Maybe time to move up and move on!
