"Something big is brewing in Trenton, N.J., and it could blow at any minute. Stephanie Plum might not be the world's greatest bounty hunter, but she knows when she's being played. Ken Globovic (aka Gobbles), hailed as the Supreme Exalted Zookeeper of the animal house known as Zeta fraternity, has been arrested for beating up the dean of students at Kiltman College. Gobbles has missed his court date and gone into hiding. People have seen him on campus, but no one will talk. Things just aren't adding up, and Stephanie can't shake the feeling that something funny is going on at the college--and it's not just Zeta fraternity pranks. As much as people love Gobbles, they hate Doug Linken. When Linken is gunned down in his backyard it's good riddance, and the list of possible murder suspects is long. The only people who care about finding Linken's killer are Trenton cop Joe Morelli, who has been assigned the case, security expert Ranger, who was hired to protect Linken, and Stephanie, who has her eye on a cash prize and hopefully has some tricks up her sleeve"--
"The much-anticipated 22nd book in the #1 bestselling Stephanie Plum series. Stephanie Plum is a bounty hunter who often runs into trouble on the job, but she has family, friends, and several men to help her out of sticky situations. There's Lula, a plus-sized former hooker turned bounty hunter, and Grandma Mazur, Stephanie's outrageous grandmother who packs a gun and sometimes tags along on cases. The series couldn't be complete without a love triangle. Joe Morelli, AKA "Officer Hottie," is Stephanie's on again/off again boyfriend, and Ranger is the bad-ass private security specialist who trains Stephanie and becomes her mentor and protector. It's always a surprise where Stephanie will land next, but her adventures are guaranteed"--

Loved the LOL ending. Grandma Mazur is one of my favorite characters in this series, and she gets a lot of ink in this book. I'm wondering whether the author is setting Stephanie up to shift more into detective/private investigation work than bounty hunting.

Quick read and delightful escape.

If you like the other Stephanie Plum books, then you will like this one too because it is just like all the others. I still love the characters and this book was a pleasant, fun read. Nothing has really changed. Morelli, Ranger, Grandma Mazur, Lula are all up to their usual stuff. The plot in this one was a little meh, but I read this series for the characters, not the plot. It would be nice to have a bit of resolution with the Stephanie/Morelli/Ranger triangle because it is getting too repetitive.

Good read!

Not funny, but a enough good story. Not-a-spoiler-alert: Morelli doesn't marry Stephanie and neither does Ranger. Stephanie still thin despite her 3500 calories per day diet. Evanovich appears to have spent more time thinking up stupid names than on developing the characters or plot. Ranger's dialog has been reduced to a series of "Babe" sort of like Groot's meaningful phrase "I am Groot" repeated ad infinitum.

the best one, with the complete storyline.

It's hard to tell with series - are they getting more formulaic or are the characters and setting just becoming too familiar to the reader? Anyway, this was an enjoyable, quick read; I'm still enough of a fan to be reading them as they come out now, even if I do feel that they're not of the same quality the first ones were.

It was the usual. I still love catching up with Miss Plum & her cohorts. I do it, not expecting deep & meaningful & expecting only light as air. That's what I get. If I have a complaint it's the cars being wrecked. A bit over that. I can still have a laugh out loud with her. I've got a few more left in me.

This Is the first book of her books I have read. I can't remember when I have enjoyed a book so much. I have laughed so hard reading this story - amazing read. Will definitely read many more of Stephanie's stories.

Have loved Stephanie for a long time. But its time for her to grow up . Light, sort of silly reading material
