Fourth in the series about the [bungling] bounty hunter Stephanie Plum and her odd assortment of associates, including her grandma! I read it about 6 months ago, so cant remember specifics, but I DID like it. =)
Offering up as a bookring to others who have only read up to "Three to get deadly". Think the series has got up as far as Thirteen now... Review
Stephanie Plum, the trash-talking New Jersey bail bondswoman of this popular series, is tracking Maxine Nowicki who's wanted for skipping out on a car-theft charge lodged by her ex-boyfriend. Now the ex-boyfriend's very interested in getting back the love letters he supposedly wrote to Maxine. But what he's really looking for is the secret on which Evanovich hangs her screwball cast of colourful minor characters, including Sally Sweet, a cross-dressing drag queen; Lula, the 250-pound ex-hooker who works for Steph's boss; Cousin Vinnie, the bail bondsman; Grandma Mazur, who packs a Glock and is always looking for a little action; and Joyce, a wannabe bounty hunter who's been cramping Steph's style since she played pass the salami with Steph's ex-husband. The action doesn't get much farther from Trenton than the Jersey Shore, but when Steph's apartment and car are blown up by the others on Maxine's trail and she moves in with Joe Morelli, the handsome, arrogant cop she's been hung up on since high school, it gets hotter than the craps table in Atlantic City. Plum's fans won't be disappointed in this fourth outing in the series, and they're likely to be even more interested in the snappy patter and sexy shenanigans than in the mystery that holds it all together.

The beautifully-wrapped book arrived this morning. I borrowed the first 3 from Fleebo at one point, so I'm rather looking forward to this one.

Good brainless fun, although I will admit that the most amusing thing was the back cover blurb: "All the easy class and wit that you expect to find in the best American TV comedy but too rarely find in modern fiction". What?? Ok, I'm a reader not a TV watcher, but please tell me they're not serious.

Apart from that, the book was almost exactly what I expected - enjoyable fluff without too many braincells required. Thanks for sharing Littlemave. I'll pm Melanie2474 and try to get it in the mail asap.
