Stephanie Plum is back up to her bounty hunting hijinks hunting down a woman who skipped out on her bail after being arrested for stealing her boyfriend's car. Of course, the case isn't nearly as straight forward as it looks and the case once again causes major problems for Stephanie.

Another fun entry in the series and although the book shows its age in parts (the language used around the two drag queens who pop up is great for 1998, but would probably take a bit of editing over twenty years later), overall it holds up well. The cast of characters surrounding Stephanie remain very funny and this time the mystery was mysterious enough I wasn't quite sure where it was headed. Definitely a read that will satisfy established fans of the series. ( )

The craziness continues! This was enjoyable and over the top as usual. ( )
  StarKnits | Feb 6, 2019 |
It's starting to get to the point in the series where everything is getting familiar. I still found the novel funny and intend to keep reading the series, but with each book I feel more like it's formula writing over mixed genres. ( )

Funny funny funny ... and a little mystery thrown in. ( )

In fairness, I have not read this yet, it is one of a batch of Plum books I bought at a yard sale.

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0312966970, Mass Market Paperback)

Stephanie Plum, the trash-talking New Jersey bail bondswoman of this popular series, is tracking Maxine Nowicki, who's wanted for skipping out on a car-theft charge lodged by her ex-boyfriend. Now the ex-boyfriend's very interested in getting back the love letters he supposedly wrote to Maxine. But what he's really looking for is the secret on which Evanovich hangs her screwball cast of colorful minor characters, including Sally Sweet, a cross-dressing drag queen; Lula, the 250-pound ex-hooker who works for Steph's boss; Cousin Vinnie, the bail bondsman; Grandma Mazur, who packs a Glock and is always looking for a little action; and Joyce, a wannabe bounty hunter who's been cramping Steph's style since she played pass the salami with Steph's ex-husband. The action doesn't get much farther from Trenton than the Jersey Shore, but when Steph's apartment and car are blown up by the others on Maxine's trail and she moves in with Joe Morelli, the handsome, arrogant cop she's been hung up on since high school, it gets hotter than the craps table in Atlantic City. Plum's fans won't be disappointed in this fourth outing in the series, and they're likely to be even more interested in the snappy patter and sexy shenanigans than in the mystery that holds it all together. --Jane Adams

"Evanovich's novels are among the great joys of contemporary fiction".--"GQ". In "Four to Score", Stephanie follows in Ranger's entrepreneurial bootsteps--but comes up against a slew of unsavory characters in the wildest ride of her life. Author online at www.evanovich.com. National ads, including "USA Today" and "The New York Times Book Review". Martin's Press. Stephanie Plum, Trenton, New Jersey's favorite pistol-packing, condom-carrying bounty hunter, is back--and on the trail of a revenge-seeking waitress who's skipped bail. With then help of 73-year-old Grandma Mazur, ex-hooker Lula, a transvestite musician named Sally Sweet, and the all-too-hospitable, all-too-sexy Joe Morelli, Stephanie might just catch her woman. Then again, with more mishaps than there are exits on the Jersey Turnpike--including murders, firebombs, and Stephanie's arch-rival bounty hunter chasing after the same fugative--Stephanie better watch her back big-time if she wants to live to crack this case.… (more)
