Bounty hunter Stephanie Plum is back. The brassy babe in the powder blue Buick has been given the unpopular task of finding Mo Bedemier, Trenton's most beloved citizen, arrested for carrying a concealed weapon, gone no-show for his court appearance. Once again, the entire One for the Money crew is in action, searching for Mo, tripping down a trail littered with dead drug dealers, leading Stephanie to suspect Mo may be in over his head.
Don't forget the rest of the Stephanie Plum series.

This was a good story, as usual, for Janet Evanovich. The narrator has changed from previous books. This took away from the story for me. Critt tried and did a decent job, but the voice used for Ranger made him sound like an adult special needs person, not a hunk. The voice used for the Grandmother was also lacking. Instead of a quirky old lady with outrageously funny comments, she now sounds like an old smoker making odd comments that don't match her voice.
I really like Lorelei King as Stephanie Plum. I bought Two for the Dough and didn't think it was too bad and so I purchased this book. I almost stopped listening. I did not enjoy anything about this one. All the male characters sounded the same and her female voices weren't much better. I wish that whoever is in charge would just have King read the first seven (?) unabridged books in the series.
I have read this book and enjoyed it very much, so I thought that I would purchase an audio of it. Unfortunately the choice in narrator took so much away from it that I stopped listening after the first 20 minutes. I was very disappointed with C. J. Critt. However, I may purchase the latest audio narratoed by Janet Evanovich herself.
Have a Boomerang Millenial Daughter. We like her, she likes us so, nice to have her back. Both my Husband and I are Proud USN Veterans.
My husband was wondering what the hell I was listening to. I laughed out loud often. He'd look at me and I would have to replay that part of the story, he agreed, it was funny. The Narrator was perfect for the main and secondary characters. I kept putting off Stephanie Plum, I am savoring every bit of her crazy life now.
I can't believe it took so long for us to get the unabridged version of books 2 & 3. It was well worth the credit. Cant wait for the unabridged version of book 1.
Evanovich is a good author. I like how the characters are developing. There's enough of them to keep it interesting. Still don't like Critt (narrator). Too old, too slow and breathes too loud. I do like the discernible voices though. Really disappointed two of the early books aren't available on Audible (I think it's 5 & 6). Stephanie is definitely a fun character. Love that it all takes place close to my neck of the woods (NJ).
I drive I listen!
Really good read. Car issues are funny and the noises the voice makes. Didn't like the voice at first book but she grows on you. I just started third series two weeks ago and I am listening whenever I get a chance! Even in the shower!
I read the book many years ago and love the book then and I love the reading now.
The characters got stronger and even more defined.
Where Did The Candy Man Go
A relaxing, quick paced, and funny story. You'll enjoy it.

These are some fun adventures. Plum is always screwing up, but she remains lovable and her cast of characters are becoming more 3 dimensional with each episode. You get a good look at Lulu this time around as she steps up to become Stephanie's hench(wo)man. Nothing too deep, just the right thing for relaxing entertainment when you have some down time.
I began reading the 2nd series and liked it so much I thought I'd try this Stephanie Plum series.
I'm a 60-year-old guy, the first book really sounded like a book written to the woman's personality. I had a hard time with it.
The second book brought me closer to Stephanie/Stefeni Plum and getting a feel for it.
I really enjoyed this third book. I found myself liking the cast of characters. Many times I found myself laughing.
I'm looking forward to reading book four.
