Another fun installment in the series. A Giraffe in the city, Stephanie hunting down an uncle of Morrelli's. Ranger once again stepping in and saving Stephanie, hanging over the edge of a bridge. The fun and excitement never stops. Another one to enjoy. ( )

Typical Stephanie Plum. Not much new, but I dont' really expect much at this point. The giraffe got extra points as it's my favorite animal. ( )

The twentieth addition to the Stephanie Plum series seems to (FINALLY!) have Stephanie thinking about growing up a bit. A near death experience jolts Stephanie into thinking about getting her life together and getting a different job at least for a little while. Other than that this was your typical Stephanie Plum novel. Steph is still caught between Morelli and Ranger. There was a rather funny debacle with Grandma Mazur, Lula, and a bingo game but overall the humor has gotten a little stale. Still, when you just want something short, reasonably entertaining, and easy to read these books are great. ( )

When #20 was released I didn't expect much more than the usual from Stephanie and the gang. But, I was surprise that Ms. Plum seams to be growing up a little bit...or at least thinking about it.

Stephanie has decided on Joe and determined to resist Ranger. She's talking about marriage and kids with a change of jobs. But, of course, now Joe is shying away from commitment and won't stand up to his family for Stephanie. She quits her job and works at another for a short time then attempts to apply at several other positions.

All this give you hope that our little girl is growing up. But in the end it's status quo. ( )

The last few in the series have been a bit ok but nothing exciting. This one felt like one of the older books and I enjoyed it more than the last two. The usual Stephanie is trying to bag someone she has a hard time tracking. This time it is someone with connections to Morelli and that makes it a bit harder with his grandmother giving her the eye all the time over it. The wacky part of the story is a runaway giraffe that no one is calling animal control about. All in all a fun read and glad I picked it up. Here is hoping that the series keeps it up even as Stephanie slowly moves to making a decision about her love life. ( )

It was late at night and Lula and I had been staking out Salvatore Sunucchi, better known as Uncle Sunny, when Lula spotted Jimmy Spit.

Stephanie Plum is back in all-new adventure from #1 bestselling author Janet Evanovich.

(retrieved from Amazon Mon, 30 Sep 2013 14:16:29 -0400)

New Jersey bounty hunter Stephanie Plum knows better than to mess with family. But when powerful mobster Salvatore "Uncle Sunny" Sunucchi goes on the lam in Trenton, it's up to Stephanie to find him. Uncle Sunny is charged with murder for running over a guy (twice), and nobody wants to turn him in--not his poker buddies, not his bimbo girlfriend, not his two right-hand men, Shorty and Moe. Even Trenton's hottest cop, Joe Morelli, has skin in the game, because "just Stephanie's luck" the godfather is his actual godfather. And while Morelli understands that the law is the law, his old-world grandmother, Bella, is doing everything she can to throw Stephanie off the trail.… (more)
