I think I was done with this series some way into the last book, but I got this one out of the library mostly out if habit, and just to give Stephanie Plum one more go-around. But I realized about 50 pages into this one that no, I really am done. I might go back to some of the earlier titles in the series to see whether it is the writing and storytelling that have declined so precipitously or if it is simply my own taste and tolerance level that have changed. Because I found, in the last one and this outing, that the writing is trite and formulaic, and it doesn't feel fun any more. It feels like old hat, which Evanovich and her publisher are simply recycling, and with each recycle, as with all paper, the quality deteriorates just a bit more. Goodbye, Stephanie Plum, it's been nice knowing you. ( )

I think I'm tired of Stefanie Plum and her adventures. Maybe the last of Evanovich that I will read. ( )

After a slow summer of chasing low-level skips for her cousin Vinnie's bail bonds agency, Stephanie Plum finally lands an assignment that could put her checkbook back in the black. Geoffrey Cubbin, facing trial for embezzling millions from Trenton's premier assisted living facility, has mysteriously vanished from the hospital after an emergency appendectomy. Now it's on Stephanie to track him down. Unfortunately, Cubbin has disappeared without a trace, and when a second felon goes missing from the same hospital, Stephanie is forced to work with Trenton's hottest cop, Joe Morelli, in order to crack the case.

Not one of her best. But made me laugh. ( )

I slugged my way thru it, but it was difficult. Reading this was like reading the last one, and the one before that, and so and so on. Same storyline, but the names are different. It's time for SOMETHING to change. ( )

Book description
New Jersey bounty hunter Stephanie Plum is certain of three truths: People don’t just vanish into thin air. Never anger old people. And don’t do what Tiki tells you to do. 

After a slow summer of chasing low-level skips for her cousin Vinnie’s bail bonds agency, Stephanie Plum finally lands an assignment that could put her checkbook back in the black. Geoffrey Cubbin, facing trial for embezzling millions from Trenton’s premier assisted-living facility, has mysteriously vanished from the hospital after an emergency appendectomy. Now it’s on Stephanie to track down the con man. Unfortunately, Cubbin has disappeared without a trace, a witness, or his money-hungry wife. Rumors are stirring that he must have had help with the daring escape . . . or that maybe he never made it out of his room alive. Since the hospital staff’s lips seem to be tighter than the security, and it’s hard for Stephanie to blend in to assisted living, Stephanie’s Grandma Mazur goes in undercover. But when a second felon goes missing from the same hospital, Stephanie is forced into working side by side with Trenton’s hottest cop, Joe Morelli, in order to crack the case.

The real problem is, no Cubbin also means no way to pay the rent. Desperate for money—or maybe just desperate—Stephanie accepts a secondary job guarding her secretive and mouthwatering mentor Ranger from a deadly Special Forces adversary. While Stephanie is notorious for finding trouble, she may have found a little more than she bargained for this time around. Then again—a little food poisoning, some threatening notes, and a bridesmaid’s dress with an excess of taffeta never killed anyone . . . or did they? If Stephanie Plum wants to bring in a paycheck, she’ll have to remember: No guts, no glory. . . .
