It was okay for a Stephanie Plum book. Wish it had more Ranger/Morelli stuff. Fun with the crazy though ( )

I've had time to reflect on this one before writing a review. Up until now I've whole-heartedly enjoyed every single adventure with Stephanie though throughout the last one I was beginning to wonder if she would ever grow up. And now I'm ready for her to move on it seems she agrees with me. Stephanie has hinted that she no longer enjoys being a bounty hunter and is considering her options.

There was a point in this book where I believed it to be the last of the series but I'm fairly sure it will be coming to an end soon, and I think it's time. Don't get me wrong there were still some hilarious scenes but certain things had begun to irritate me so I hope the series ends before I have to abandon it before I start disliking it. ( )

I don't know why I'm reading this - the first 6-8 in the series were hilarious. Now it's just more of the same. Still mildly entertaining but meh ... ( )

Seriously, Janet, just stop with the Stephanie Plum books already. You've made sixteen of them, plus odd novellas and spin-offs, and nothing's changed. I went from book two to book sixteen and nothing had happened in that spanse. The lead character is still making the same idiot mistakes.

She's supposed to be a bounty hunter, and she's doing stuff that she should be arrested for. And she doesn't do anything herself. One of her beaus jumps into save her each time, even at the end. She's a wimp who's not challenging any Action Girl tropes. Lula, the fat, black prostitute gets more lines than Plum, but they're all eating jokes and fart humor. Things females would giggle naughtily at. And after sixteen books she's still in the same relationship status she was in the beginning. Give me a break. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0312383304, Hardcover)

Trenton, New Jersey, bounty hunter Stephanie Plum has inherited a “lucky” bottle from her Uncle Pip. Problem is, Uncle Pip didn’t specify if the bottle brought good luck or bad luck. . . .


Vinnie, of Vincent Plum Bail Bonds, has run up a gambling debt of $786,000 with mobster Bobby Sunflower and is being held until the cash can be produced. Nobody else will pay to get Vinnie back, leaving it up to Stephanie, office manager Connie, and file clerk Lula to raise the money if they want to save their jobs.


Being in the business of tracking down people, Stephanie, Lula, and Connie have an advantage in finding Vinnie. If they can rescue him, it will buy them some time to raise the cash.


Finding a safe place to hide Vinnie turns out to be harder than raising $786,000. Vinnie’s messing up Mooner’s vibe, running up pay-per-view porn charges in Ranger’s apartment, and making Stephanie question genetics.


Between a bonds office yard sale that has the entire Burg turning out, Mooner’s Hobbit-Con charity event, and Uncle Pip’s lucky bottle, they just might raise enough money to save the business, and Vinnie, from ruin.


Saving Vincent Plum Bail Bonds means Stephanie can keep being a bounty hunter. In Trenton, this involves hunting down a man wanted for polygamy, a turnpike toilet paper bandit, and a drug dealer with a pet alligator named Mr. Jingles.


The job of bounty hunter comes with perks in the guise of Trenton’s hottest cop, Joe Morelli, and the dark and dangerous security expert, Ranger. With any luck at all, Uncle Pip’s lucky bottle will have Stephanie getting lucky---the only question is . . . with whom?

Sizzling Sixteen . . . so hot, the pages might spontaneously combust!
