Bounty hunter Stephanie Plum has chosen a life of pulse-racing danger and adventure. But when international murder hits dangerously close to home, this could be more explosive than exciting. After a hellish holiday in Hawaii, Stephanie boards the plane to Newark hoping to put it all behind her. But when her seatmate mysteriously disappears during the stopover in LA, things are only going to get worse. He was carrying a photograph, and only one other person's seen it - Stephanie. Now, she's a target. And if this wasn't trouble enough, she still has to deal with the fallout from Hawaii. The two men in her life - hottest cop in town, Joe Morelli, and fellow bounty hunter, Ranger - both refuse to talk about it. And all Stephanie is willing to say about her Hawaiian vacation is...It's complicated.
Good but losing zing factor
After following Stephanie for more than a decade (where my life has seen me change jobs several times, move interstate, take a husband, bear three children and find a new career) it's becoming tedious that she's not moving along with me. Or at all. Miss Plum's life - utterly implausibly - hasn't moved on one iota. And while the japes and the weirdly compelling ménage a trois that occupy her life are by no means plausible either, the reader is only willing to suspend disbelief so far. Come on, Janet! Take a risk and move Steph' on!!
Not enough closet scenes with Ranger!!!!
It's nice to be back with Stephanie and Lula, but come on Janet!! Where's the smouldering sexual tension, the relentless Ranger pursuits of Stephanie and that alluring smell of Bulgari? Wanted more details of the spa trip ... And so much more. :-( Disappointing but still worth reading. Just don't hope for much more of an advance of where it left off last time, or the time before, or the time before that.
Time to end the series
Unfortunately the book starts out great but comes to a rather boring ending. I think it's time to wrap up Stephanie.
There are some hilarious moments with Lula and it's definitely worth reading, but the formula is getting a little stale :(
