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 bank balance 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. The problem is, Cubbin has disappeared without a trace, a witness, or his money-hungry wife. Rumours 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, Plum 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 means no way to pay the rent. Desperate for money - or maybe just desperate - Plum accepts a secondary job guarding her secretive and mouth-watering 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 it? If Stephanie Plum wants to bring in a pay check, she'll have to remember: no guts, no glory....

I used to love all of Janet Evanovich books. I brought this book expecting to be amused and entertained. It felt to me that it was quickly written for Christmas and I was disappointed!! I think I only laughed once and that is only due to Stephanie once again having her car blown up and this is to be expected in all of the Stephanie Plum books. I found the book so disappointing I'm not sure I will buy another in this series.
Listening to latest James Patterson book at present. Also listening to the J D Robb series which I find amusing.
If you cut any of the characters from the book you wouldn't have a book. It was short enough as it was let alone cutting characters.
