Another enjoyable Stephanie Plum novel. Very funny. ( )
  nx74defiant | Feb 4, 2017 |
Stephanie Plum is thinking her career as fugitive apprehension agent aka bounty hunter, has run its course. She's been shot at, spat at, cussed at, fire-bombed, mooned, and attacked by dogs. Time for a change, Stephanie thinks. Time to find the kind of job her mother can tell her friends about without making the sign of the cross. So Stephanie Plum resigns, leaving friend Lula holding the reigns. She wants something safe and normal. As it turns out, jobs that are safe and normal for most people aren't necessarily safe and normal for Stephanie Plum. Trouble follows her, and the kind of trouble she had at the bail bonds office can't compare to the kind of trouble she finds herself facing now. Her past has come back to haunt her. She's stalked by a maniac returned from the grave for the sole purpose of putting her into a burial plot of her own. He's killed before, and he'll kill again if given the chance.
After brief careers at the button factory, Kan Klean Dry Cleaners, and Cluck-in-a-Bucket, Stephanie takes an office position in security, working for Ranger, the sexiest, baddest, bounty hunter and businessman. It might not be the job she'll keep for the rest of her life, but for now, it gives her the technical access she needs to find her stalker. ( )

I...don't even know what to say. That was an abrupt and poorly written ending. ( )

Book eleven (more or less) in the Stephanie Plum series. In this one, Stephanie gets fed up and decides to quit her bounty hunter job -- which she really ought to have done about ten books ago, if you ask me -- and also seems to have become a target for a bad guy from the past out looking for revenge.

What is there to say about this one, really? It's a Stephanie Plum novel. You read one, you've read 'em all, and even having Stephanie temporarily quit her job just adds a running joke about new jobs that end in disaster to the running joke about cars being destroyed. As usual, I found the wacky hijinks mildly amusing, the love triangle that never goes anywhere mildly annoying, and the constant jokes about women overeating and worrying about their weight increasingly irritating. The plot is paper-thin, and mostly only gets interesting for about ten pages at the end, but it's hard to care much since the plot is mostly an excuse for aforementioned wacky hijinks, anyway. There was a line of dialog or two that gave me a little bit of a chuckle, although this one lacked the occasional laugh-out-loud moments the best of them have. And it was about the speed my brain could handle while trying to pass a boring night shift on far too little sleep. ( )

As always, the characters were wonderful. However, the plot for this installment fell a bit flat. Oh well, can't win 'em all. I will still continue with this Stephanie Plum series. ( )

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0312985347, Mass Market Paperback)

Stephanie Plum, Trenton's favorite bondswoman, is having a career crisis, which gives Janet Evanovich plenty of opportunities to showcase her series heroine in a variety of alternative vocations, from dry cleaner to factory worker. Most of them don't last a full working day, which is good for the reader, since it plunges Stephanie back into the always seedy, often dangerous, and always colorful world of fugitives who'd rather flee than face their day in court. She may be tired of having her life threatened, her cars torched or blown up, and her apartment broken into, but one thing she can say about her job is that it's never boring... and neither is she. Despite her intentions of going straight at a job with a little more security and a bit less excitement, an old client won't let her--he keeps leaving her threatening notes, stalking and scaring her, and making sure she needs the protection of the two men in her life--Joe Morelli, the sexy cop who's been bedding her since high school, and Ranger, the even sexier tough guy who can take down the meanest fugitive around but has a tender spot in his heart for the plucky Ms. Plum. All Evanovich fans' favorite characters people this sprightly caper novel, including Lula, the fast-food-chomping former hooker who's hot to take over Stephanie's job but really belongs in a WWE Takedown; Grandma Mazur, who'd rather go to a wake than a fancy-dress ball; Grandma Bella, the matriarch of the Morelli family whose evil eye frightens even the indomitable Stephanie; and Valerie, Stephanie's sister, who's about to embark on another trip to the altar. A great beach read, Eleven on Top is a guilty pleasure that will delight readers of the author's 10 earlier novels and should win her even more fans. --Jane Adams
