Publisher's Summary

Number-one best-selling author Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum novels are: "irresistible" (Houston Chronicle), "stunning" (Booklist), "outrageous" (Publishers Weekly), "brilliantly evocative" (The Denver Post), and "making trouble and winning hearts" (USA Today).

New Jersey bounty hunter Stephanie Plum is certain of three truths: People don't just vanish into thin air. Never anger old people. And don't do what Tiki tells you to do.

After a slow summer of chasing low-level skips for her cousin Vinnie's bail bonds agency, Stephanie Plum finally lands an assignment that could put her checkbook back in the black. Geoffrey Cubbin, facing trial for embezzling millions from Trenton's premier assisted-living facility, has mysteriously vanished from the hospital after an emergency appendectomy. Now it's on Stephanie to track down the con man. Unfortunately, Cubbin has disappeared without a trace, a witness, or his money-hungry wife. Rumors are stirring that he must have had help with the daring escape...or that maybe he never made it out of his room alive.

Since the hospital staff's lips seem to be tighter than the security, and it's hard for Stephanie to blend in to assisted living, Stephanie's Grandma Mazur goes in undercover. But when a second felon goes missing from the same hospital, Stephanie is forced into working side by side with Trenton's hottest cop, Joe Morelli, in order to crack the case.

The real problem is, no Cubbin also means no way to pay the rent. Desperate for money - or maybe just desperate - Stephanie accepts a secondary job guarding her secretive and mouthwatering mentor Ranger from a deadly Special Forces adversary. While Stephanie is notorious for finding trouble, she may have found a little more than she bargained for this time around. Then again - a little food poisoning, some threatening notes, and a bridesmaid's dress with an excess of taffeta never killed anyone.... Or did they? If Stephanie Plum wants to bring in a paycheck, she'll have to remember: No guts, no glory.

    Story
    "Still hilarious and crazy"
    What made the experience of listening to Notorious Nineteen the most enjoyable?

    Notorious Nineteen does not disappoint. You'd think Stephanie and Lula would have run out of crazy situations, but they are still finding them. More cars blown up, more rescues by
    Ranger.More development with Morelli. This book even had a good mystery going.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The scene at the nude beach was hilarious-I could picture it all. The action parts of the story were exciting and somewhat believable. Joe and Stephanie's relationship is definitely getting more interesting.


    Which character – as performed by Lorelei King – was your favorite?

    Lula


    Any additional comments?

    can't wait for #20

    "As Usual..."
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Yes if they were a fan of Stephanie Plum. Not for a 'newby' because those books were better at the beginning of the series.


    What could Janet Evanovich have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    She could get some new ideas !


    Which character – as performed by Lorelei King – was your favorite?

    I liked all the characters; I love that dame ! In a large part I still listen to those books because of her.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    YES !

    "Not bad"

    I don't know why everyone has said this book is so bad. It was a little short but it was much better than the last Stephanie book and I really enjoyed it.

    "Love Love Love Stephanie Plum!"

    Such a great series. They are funny and light, just a good listen. I do wish they were longer but that's the only bad thing I have to say. A mystery with humor has to be my favorite kind of book. Enjoy!

    "Best Evanovich in five years."

    Frankly the Plum series was getting boring with mediocre stories and old humor, but this was a return to the early Plum's. Great story with lots of great humor. Loved this book.

    "great book"
    Where does Notorious Nineteen rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I love this story of stephanie plum. This one kept me guessing what was going to happen next. and I love the way we are left hanging with Ranger wanting a "date". Is marriage in the future or not? I guess I will have to wait for the next book. Can't wait!!!!


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

    Lorelei does such a great job of keeping the voices of each character separate and continues the voice book after book. there are times when Lorelei is reading that she really does not have to tell you who is talking because you already know. Listening to her I feel sometimes like I am watching a movie not listening to a book.

    Story
    "Stephanie Plum Keeps On Coming"

    I always enjoy listening to these books. Lorelei King is an amazing narrator. Very few narrators are in the same class that she is. Plus the books are always funny. Unfortunately, it's 19 versions of the same book. So while it's great fun and lots of laughter, there's nothing new there. So, if you're a Stephanie Plum fan, listen to the book and enjoy King's work but don't expect any great revelations.
