All New Jersey bounty hunter Stephanie Plum has to do is bring in semi-retired bail jumper Eddie DeChooch. For an old man he's still got a knack for slipping out of sight...and raising hell. How else can Stephanie explain the bullet-riddled corpse in Eddie's garden? Who else would have a clue as to why two of Stephanie's friends suddenly vanished? For answers Stephanie has the devil to pay: her mentor, Ranger. The deal? He'll give Stephanie all the help she needs...if she gives him everything he wants.

Would you listen to Seven Up again? Why?

Yes - the story was hysterical. And the Narrator was very good at all the character's voices.

Have you listened to any of Lorelei King’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No - can't wait to continue on with the Plum series.

In Wishful Drinking, Carrie Fisher tells the true and intoxicating story of her life with inimitable wit. Born to celebrity parents, she was picked to play a princess in a little movie called Star Wars when only 19 years old. "But it isn't all sweetness and light sabers."

What did you love best about Wishful Drinking?

Carrie Fisher's humor was non stop - her self deprecating 1 liners had me in tears. I know people at the stop lights were looking at me wondering what was wrong with me.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Wishful Drinking?

When she was referring to Lucas owning the "rights" to the Princess Leia likeliness - and referred to her cosmic regions.

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

I love her voice.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

YES
