Smokin' Seventeen



My Rating:  A Must Read! (10 out of 10)
Source: Library


Where there’s smoke there’s fire, and no one knows this better than New Jersey bounty hunter Stephanie Plum.

Synopsis (form bn.com): Dead bodies are showing up in shallow graves on the empty construction lot of Vincent Plum Bail Bonds. No one is sure who the killer is, or why the victims have been offed, but what is clear is that Stephanie’s name is on the killer’s list.

Short on time to find evidence proving the killer’s identity, Stephanie faces further complications when her family and friends decide that it’s time for her to choose between her longtime off-again-on-again boyfriend, Trenton cop Joe Morelli, and the bad boy in her life, security expert Ranger. Stephanie’s mom is encouraging Stephanie to dump them both and choose a former high school football star who’s just returned to town. Stephanie’s sidekick, Lula, is encouraging Stephanie to have a red-hot boudoir “bake-off.” And Grandma Bella, Morelli’s old-world grandmother, is encouraging Stephanie to move to a new state when she puts “the eye” on Stephanie.

With a cold-blooded killer after her, a handful of hot men, and a capture list that includes a dancing bear and a senior citizen vampire, Stephanie’s life looks like it’s about to go up in smoke.

My Review:  One of my very favorite series is Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum! Her latest, Smokin' Seventeen was no let down. I laughed right out loud while reading this book. We still don't know who or when Stephanie will settle down. Do you want her to pick Joe or Ranger? I want her to pick both for separate reasons! Grandma Bella is back in this book and it is too funny.  She puts the "eye" on Stephanie. We don't get to hear much from Grandma Mazer, but get our fill of Lula and Mooner!

The only thing I hate about this series is the time in between finishing the latest book and waiting for the next one.  I just don't get why Janet can't write faster and the publisher publish them faster.  I just can't get enough of them!

In case you don't know - I rate this book A Must Read!

Have a great week!

  1. The ratings on this one are all over the place! So many people simply LOVE it, but there are others who were disappointed. Because the loves outweigh the others, it is still on my list!
