Publisher's Summary

Buckle your seat belts. New York Times best-selling author Janet Evanovich is moving into the fast lane with Metro Girl, a thrilling, high-octane misadventure with high stakes, hot nights, cold-blooded murder, sunken treasure, a woman with a chassis built for speed, and one very good, very sexy NASCAR driver who's along for the ride.

"Wild" Bill Barnaby's dropped off the face of the earth and big sister Alex heads for Miami, Bill's last known sighting, on a harrowing hunt to save her brother...and maybe the world. Truth is, Alex has been bailing her brother out of trouble since they were kids. Not that Bill's a bad sort. More that he acts first and thinks later. Unfortunately, this time around, Wild Bill will be Dead Bill if Alex doesn't find him in time.

Alex blasts through the bars of South Beach and points her search to Key West and Cuba, laying waste to Miami hit men, dodging Palmetto bugs big enough to eat her alive, and putting the pedal to the metal with NASCAR driver Sam Hooker.

Engaged in a deadly race, Wild Bill has "borrowed" Hooker's sixty-five foot Hatteras and sailed off into the sunset...just when Hooker has plans for the boat. Hooker figures he'll attach himself to Alex and maybe run into Bill. Maybe Hooker can salvage what's left of his vacation. And maybe Hooker'll get lucky in love with Bill's sweetie-pie sister. After all, Hooker is NASCAR Guy. And NASCAR Guy is good at revving a woman's engine.

The race to the finish is hot and hard, taking Alex and Hooker into international waters, exposing a plot to grab Cuban gold and a sinister relic of the Cuban missile crises. Creative cussing and sexual innuendo included.

Summer Fun

Janet Evanovich does it again. Great new lead character and a great deal of fun. It's not rocket science but it's a great diversion for when you're stuck in traffic.CJ is an awesome reader too.

So-so listen

I've read 1-3 and 10 in the Stephanie Plum series and thoroughly enjoyed them...at many points laughed aloud. This, on the other hand, was basically boring. It wasn't very funny until parts at the end; the plot was ridiculous at points; characters were rather uninteresting. I'd recommend that you skip this one and stick with the "numbered" Stephanie Plum series.

Good, but....

This book is a funny read, but not a great listen -- don't bother as long as C.J. Critt is reading it. Critt does a really great job with with Dramas -- she brings the work of Patricia Cornwell alive, but she just doesn't have what it takes to read a comedy/adventure novel like those found in Janet Evanovich books. I was excited to see that Evanovich came up with the book, a possible change from the Plum books, but found myself saying over and over, "Why, why didn't she have Lorelei King read it as she does with most of the Plum books?" Evanovich's work on this one is deleted by the reading -- ONLY USE KING!!!

I love Metro Girl.

I have really enjoyed Metro Girl. I have long been a fan of Janet’s. I find her writing a pleasure. I love nothing more to escape in any one of your characters. I love Stephanie I have listened to more of your books more than once. I am very much looking forward to the next instalment of Fox and O'Hare. Your work all ways makes me laugh out loud.
Lol please write faster. Fab and amazing as always.
