The Crime: Armed robbery to the tune of nine million dollars
Dom Rizzi robbed a bank, stashed the money, and did the time. His family couldn't be more proud. He always was the smart one.
The Cousin: Joe Morelli
Joe Morelli, Dom Rizzi, and Dom's sister, Loretta, are cousins. Morelli is a cop, Rizzi robs banks, and Loretta is a single mother waiting tables at the firehouse. The all-American family.
The Complications: Murder, kidnapping, destruction of personal property, and acid reflux
Less than a week after Dom's release from prison, Joe Morelli has shadowy figures breaking into his house and dying in his basement. He's getting threatening messages, Loretta is kidnapped, and Dom is missing.
The Catastrophe: Moonman
Morelli hires Walter "Mooner" Dunphy, stoner and "inventor" turned crime fighter, to protect his house. Morelli can't afford a lot on a cop's salary, and Mooner will work for potatoes.
The Cupcake: Stephanie Plum
Stephanie and Morelli have a long-standing relationship that involves sex, affection, and driving each other nuts. She's a bond enforcement agent with more luck than talent, and she's involved in this bank-robbery-gone-bad disaster from day one.
The Crisis: A favor for Ranger
Security expert Carlos Manoso, street name Ranger, has a job for Stephanie that will involve night work. Morelli has his own ideas regarding Stephanie's evening activities.
The Conclusion: Only the fearless should listen to Fourteen.
Thrills, chills, and incontinence may result.
More Grandma Mazur please. Other than that ... very entertaining, as usual. And no appearance by Big Blue. I know there must be diversity, but I love Grandma Mazur. She reminds me of m7 Grandma Helen.
I have loved every book in this series and can not wait to listen to the next one. The characters are so funny. The ideas of how the story goes is always a Surpriser that keeps you on the edge of your seat wondering what will happen next.
Fast moving stories with, great characters, and lots of humor. What's not to to like
What disappointed you about Fearless Fourteen?
We used to love this series, but now it has become the exact same cliche'd formula over and over and over. There's absolutely nothing new, nothing that you haven't heard for the first 13 books, it's almost like she's got a computer that just cranks out the same story, same characters, same situations, over and over and over. Example: at first the antics of the grandmother were funny. But now yeah, we get it, she really likes to go to funerals and somehow create a scene, check, she likes to make "outrageous" sex comments, check, she loves to pack a big pistol, check, she loves to say things at the dinner table that make Stephanie's mother look up in shock and cross herself, etc. And its that way for every character. Every single thing they do and say is just a repetition of the caricature that's she made each character. We used to love listening to these on long trips, and would laugh out loud. With this one we just shook our heads in disgust.
Would you ever listen to anything by Janet Evanovich again?
Nope. She's milking it for all she can.
What about Lorelei King’s performance did you like?
She's actually quite good.
You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?
If you've never listened to a Stephanie Plum novel, you might enjoy it. But we were Stephanie Plum fans, and Evanovich is just milking this by writing the exact same book every time these days.
Any additional comments?
Just that we're really disappointed. We were big fans, thought that the characters were evolving, but it's clear Evanovich is out of ideas.
As always spectacular!!! I can't get enough Plum! Great story line. Lula as always a real Lulu!!
this story had me laughing, love the narrator she brings the story to life. awesome
I loved this book. Ranger was in a tux and Joes house was broken in to. Was good form start to end.
What a disappointment!!! I expect more of Ms. Evanovich. It was slapstick ad nauseam. Brenda and that entire subplot could be left out for starters but in reality nothing could save this book. Save your money and move on.
this book was hilarious and the characters were fantastic. I can't wait to listen to it again!
She keeps everything fresh and wanting more. I am constantly rewinding if I am distracted while listening. I look forward to every next episode.
