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.

I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!
This is a typically light, fun, and somewhat crude Stephanie Plum murder mystery by Janet Evanovich. The formula works. CJ Critt is an outstanding narrator.
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.
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.
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.

Narration brings story to life!
loved listening to the different characters evolving.
story keeps you guessing. no predictability here.
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.
Follow me on Goodreads too!
What I liked about Books 1 and 2, I like about Book 3.
Repeating myself from previous reviews: “It’s far from being a page-turner, but it’s so entertaining that I don’t care how plausible (or not) the plot turns out to be. I like the humour and Stephanie’s acerbic sarcastic streak is terrific; I’m in it purely for the enjoyable distraction.”
I do have to say that the novelty is wearing off a bit, so I’m not sure how much longer I will hang in there… or perhaps I won’t bother with every single instalment and just skip to the latest releases…
Meh, it’ll be a mood-thing!
If I were actually reading this book, is never sleep, go to work or even leave the house... Ever!
Good thing for this audiobook feature because I can take Stephanie with me everywhere!
And I have to say CJ Critt (the narrator) does an EXCELLENT job bringing you into Stephanie's world.
You'll never want to leave!
