Bounty hunter Stephanie Plum is back, packing a whole lot of attitude. This time around, she's on the trail of Kenny Mancuso, a boy from the working-class burg of Trenton, New Jersey, who has just shot his best friend. Fresh out of the Army and suspiciously wealthy, Mancuso's also distantly related to Joe Morelli, a vice cop with questionable ethics, a libido in permanent overdrive, and a habit of horning in on Stephanie's investigations.

"The first must-read of the new year." (Kirkus Reviews )
Janet Evanovich writes very funny stories. Thank you so much for the laughter. Thank you and keep me laughing......
I love this series...I've read them all, and am now listening to them from the beginning. They are good now, but they get even better. If you like Ranger now, just wait.
Another good Stephanie Plum story. I like the humor Janet Evanovish puts in her books. Keeps you entertained for sure.
One for the Money...
She does a good job of changing her voice to accomidate the character changes. Plus she seems to have a real boston accent which is helpful since the story is based in that area.
I need a friend like Rex
This is the third book from this author that i've listened to ... and my goal to to listen to all of them! Very entertaining in writing and the narrative makes it even more fun to listen to!
I Love a great supernatural tale, a Love story, PNR, a Cool Mystery and Most Sci-Fi....if there are vampires, weres or witches in it, that's a plus! Basically I am a 40+ y/o young at heart woman rediscovering the wonderful world of books and am now addicted! Lol I LOVE AUDIBLE!!!!!
Hysterical, entertaining, good!
Grandma Mazur with her 45!
she is funny with her Jersey accent....she is a good narrator!
yep...would have if I could have....
I like this series....I hope it goes on sale again soon...it is not my genre, but Stephanie Plum is a great MC!
Ok...this is mildly funny. I can not deal with more of the same. How many books can I listen to the same story with different players. The books are almost entertaining but I expect a new story and this was more of the same and I can not imagine that the next would suddenly shock me with a great new plot. Ms. Plum in a great character and the concept is sound but changing some details and characters does not make the series worth the listen.
I am attracted to stories with lots of humor. This series is satisfying my "giggle quotient" quite nicely!
Stephanie is improving as a bounty hunter, but still has a long way to go. She knows just enough to really dangerous - in the most hilarious ways. I also love her family and they are key players in this story, which I appreciated.
Ms. Critt reads the story very seriously, which makes the humor even more enjoyable. I am used to the Jersey accent now and hardly noticed it at all. (Sorry, not a fan of Jersey accents. Just so you know, I have a midwestern accent and I know that isn't universally loved either, so I hope no one take offense at this comment, because there is no offense intended - just a matter of taste.)
Yes, I laughed throughout this book even more than I did book one. Thanks for the enjoyable listen!
I love Stephanie's family and how "real" this family unit appears to be. I want to be adopted by Grandma Mazur - she steals the show in this book. It is nice to see how much Stephanie loves her Grandma, apricot hair and all! (PS - I think Stephanie gets her style from Grandma Mazur - LOL!)
Friends suggested this series (I bought the 1st 3) as comparable to Marian Keyes work...it is not. A little Stephanie Plum goes a long way.
I have one more to go
No....very hard for me to write this-I wanted it to be over.
I liked the 1st one in the series...maybe the 3rd will be better...
This was my first audio book with my new Kindle and I loved it. Loved C. J. Critts narration of it. She does such a good job with the voice changes of all the characters. The story was very good.
It seemed to progress incredibly slowly and I just couldn't get past the dated 80's feel.
