Just in time for a hectic holiday, Janet Evanovich’s new book provided comic relief to balance out my obsession with Martha Stewart’s list of favorite pies (Rum Raisin recommended, Shaker Lemon … not so much).
People are disappearing from a local hospital and Lingerie Buyer-turned Bounty Hunter Stephanie Plum, along with her zany cast of characters, is on the case. Stephanie’s love interest, Officer Joe Morelli, is also working on the case. Based on past experience, things don’t go well when Stephanie and Morelli work together and this is no exception. Also, because the bounty hunting business is slow, Stephanie must take on another job working with her other love interest, Ranger, on security detail for a high profile wedding. Ranger and the groom are retired from military Special Forces and someone wants to torture and kill them.
Throw in an obnoxious pink bridesmaid dress, a couple of blown-up cars, Grandma Mazur working undercover, a possessed Tiki doll, and Evanovich’s predictable formula for comedy and the outcome is a fun read that distracted me from thinking about pie and the serious book I was reading. ~Enjoy~~
