Dear Listener, I've heard that many of you would like more books that entertain you the way my Stephanie Plum novels do...
Janet Evanovich continues the Stephanie Plum series with the 20th installment, Takedown Twenty....
From Janet Evanovich, New York Times best-selling author of the Stephanie Plum novels, and Lee Goldberg, best-selling author and television writer for Monk, comes the first adventure in an electrifying new series....
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.
What did you love best about Notorious Nineteen?
There just can't be enough Lula in these books! She is hilarious and really seems to be evolving into a more important role in Stephanie's life. I would love to have a 'between the numbers' Lula book!!! Would love to know what Lula and Tank's relationship was really like!
Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?
Stephanie and Ranger covering a wedding was def something to keep me involved! I am a die hard Team Ranger so I was hoping it made him think about his future with Stephanie!
Which scene was your favorite?
The mental picture of Stephanie in a tacky bridesmaid dress and sneakers was a true LOL moment!! I'm sure other drivers think I am a true crazy lady sometimes!! Love my Stephanie Plum books!
I have always loved these but here lately I'm getting a little bit bored with and honestly a little frustrated. Stephanie still can't make up her mind which man she wants to be with it is like the guys are pretty happy to stick their head in the sand and don't care what she does when she's not with them. It's totally unrealistic behavior.
Laugh and inhabit a different world for a while. Stephanie Plum takes me away from it all.
one thing I can count on is that Janet Evanovich will always make you laugh and tied into a really good story
Stephanie at her finest as usual. Lula funny as ever. Moreli and Ranger awesome as always. Even starting to like Briggs?! Hard to stop listening!
I really liked the narrator. She did a great job voice changes were good. This was my first audible book of Plum series, and I actually really enjoyed it. Will probably do more.
This was a great book to listen to while I was going for four mile walks.
"Bob looked like a half of golden retriever and half wookie" lol I heard that and couldn't stop laughing lol.
As always this author didn't disappoint. I have read all the Stephanie Plummer series and have never been disappointed.
as usual Stephanie Plum finds herself in hilarious and dangerous situations. never a boring or dull moment. I'm ready for the next book!
