In the heart of Trenton, N. J., a killer is out to make sure someone gets his just desserts.
Larry Virgil skipped out on his latest court date after he was arrested for hijacking an eighteen-wheeler full of premium bourbon. Fortunately for bounty hunter Stephanie Plum, Larry is just stupid enough to attempt almost the exact same crime again. Only this time he flees the scene, leaving behind a freezer truck loaded with Bogart ice cream and a dead body—frozen solid and covered in chocolate and chopped pecans.
As fate would have it, Stephanie's mentor and occasional employer, Ranger, needs her to go undercover at the Bogart factory to find out who's putting their employees on ice and sabotaging the business. It's going to be hard for Stephanie to keep her hands off all that ice cream, and even harder for her to keep her hands off Ranger. It's also going to be hard to explain to Trenton's hottest cop, Joe Morelli, why she is spending late nights with Ranger, late nights with Lula and Randy Briggs—who are naked and afraid—and late nights keeping tabs on Grandma Mazur and her new fella. Stephanie Plum has a lot on her plate, but for a girl who claims to have "virtually no marketable skills," these are the kinds of sweet assignments she does best.

I am an avid listener. I listen between 75-100 hours per month on my iPhone: 60% fiction to 40% non-fiction.
Stephanie, Stephanie, Stephanie. What the heck are you doing? This love triangle is beyond resolution now. Time to move in with both guys. This story is weak. It's short because I think even Enanovich couldn't leg it out. It only gets three starts because of Lorelei King. This is a story about ice cream. You know who the bad guy is within the first hour and what they are doing. There is a bunch of stuff around Lula which is dead boring.
Lula fail. Love triangle - fail. Grandma fail. Ranger, Evanovich even has to justify why Ranger keeps calling her in on cases -- very thin. So thin it may be not even there. Moreli, he just sits back and lets at keeps things status quo. We are way out there now, and not in a good way.
Change this up, find something new. I know you are making a fortune with this books, they rate a little more than mailing them in. Unsatisfied!!!
I love Lorelei King. She does a fantastic job with the characters.
My favorite character is always Ranger. I just love him. Lula is great as well. She makes the books hilarious.
There were a few scenes that had me laughing. Lula is always great. But I think my favorite scene was Briggs when he did naked bungee jumping.
No, I didn't have an extreme reaction to this book. This book is just like the rest and honestly it was a little boring.
I love this series and unfortunately I was a little disappointed with this book. First, when did Ranger become so inadequate at things? He said he needs Stephanie because he's not a details man and misses things? Did I just not notice this in other books? Also, Morelli seems to be just a big push over. There was no real emotion. All he wanted was sex. His girlfriend was hit by a car and he had nothing to say. And he didn't mention the overnight Disney stay Stephanie had with Ranger were she ended up sleeping with him? The book ending was rushed. It was literally under 4 minutes where Stephanie is found, saved, treated at the hospital, sent home, and told that the bad guys were going to jail. The end. I'm starting to feel like this story needs to come to a close. We wait for 1 book a year and all we get is 6 hours of mediocre writing. It's depressing.
This is the last book in this series I will read. It's the same story over and over. Never anything new. Janet Evanovich needs to retire this character, even though I do love her. The last straw for me was the Morelli/Ranger thread in this book. No spoilers here but she should develop the story so Stephanie decides one way or the other. Stephanie is as confused as the readers. The best books for me was when Stephanie was involved with Ranger. Ms. Evanovich is a great writer. She needs to come up with a new series with new characters and unknown storylines. Don't make us suffer through any more of these books hoping against hope that this one will finally be something more.
I love Stephanie plum but this one was a little disappointing. The story to me seemed to lack something. This book seemed to be rushed and thrown together. Lorelei King did her awesome job as usual.
I have read or heard all on this series. the last few books I have said I was not going to read another. always the same story with a simple mystery and same storyline. he Said, she said. ugh.
Love Janet Evanovich and Lorelei King is a great narrator.
I love the Stephanie Plum series, but it needs to come to an end. The story lines are very predictable and the Stephanie, Joe, Ranger love triangle is getting old. Every book is the same, Stephanie and Lula will stumble into a situation that will end with Stephanie being kidnapped and almost killed before being rescued in the nick of time by Joe, Ranger, or both. Along the way Stephanie's car will be destroyed and she will try to make up her mind about which guy she wants to be with. In the end she will not choose and we are off to the next book for more of the same......
Nothing new here. Beginning to feel like the series needs to wrap up. Will miss it, but I am sure Ms. Evanovich can come up with another lovable heroine.
Ranger or Morelli? Should she quit or work for the bail bonds office? I used to love these books but come on! 23 books with the same plot line and same old tired love triangle? Just grow up already Stephanie Plum.
