Publisher's Summary

Where there’s smoke there’s fire, and no one knows this better than New Jersey bounty hunter Stephanie Plum.
Dead bodies are showing up in shallow graves on the empty construction lot of Vincent Plum Bail Bonds. No one is sure who the killer is, or why the victims have been offed, but what is clear is that Stephanie’s name is on the killer’s list.
Short on time to find evidence proving the killer’s identity, Stephanie faces further complications when her family and friends decide that it’s time for her to choose between her longtime off-again-on-again boyfriend, Trenton cop Joe Morelli, and the bad boy in her life, security expert Ranger. Stephanie’s mom is encouraging Stephanie to dump them both and choose a former high school football star who’s just returned to town. Stephanie’s sidekick, Lula, is encouraging Stephanie to have a red-hot boudoir “bake-off.” And Grandma Bella, Morelli’s old-world grandmother, is encouraging Stephanie to move to a new state when she puts “the eye” on Stephanie.
With a cold-blooded killer after her, a handful of hot men, and a capture list that includes a dancing bear and a senior citizen vampire, Stephanie’s life looks like it’s about to go up in smoke.

Critic Reviews

"No less than her plotting, Evanovich’s characterizations are models of screwball artistry. . . . The intricate plot machinery of her comic capers is fueled by inventive twists.” (The New York Times)
“Chutzpah and sheer comic inventiveness.... The Evanovich/Plum books [are] good fun.” (The Washington Post)

Been there read that!

I had given up on Janet and the Stephanie novels cause they were so redundant. I have been a loyal follower since the series started. I was taking a short solo business trip thought this would be lite easy listen. Well, it was so disappointing. I could have written this book. The only thing that is worth it is the excellent reader Lorelei and how she makes all the characters come alive. But that didn't even to it for me this time. Janet, next one needs to be Ending Eighteen! Thanks for the ride though.

Stephanie Plum Fan

While a fan of the series, it appears Janet Evanovich has gotten lazy in her writing. She is reusing lines from previous books and not developing the characters. Also, no longer developing the scenes between Joe and/or Ranger and Stephanie. Lots of obvious opportunities in this book for more details especially with the interaction between these primary characters, but all opportunities were passed up. In fact, some situations screamed for more explanation/reaction, but were ignored. Unfortunate, as these relationships are what we want to read about.
