Smokin' Seventeen - A Mini Review

Smokin' Seventeen - Janet Evanovich (own)


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.

My Thoughts:

This will be short and sweet. I enjoyed the book. I think mostly because I love this series so much. Was it one of the better ones? Not really. It didn't have near the action packed, car exploding, stake out filled action as others have. It did keep me reading and It did keep me chuckling. Both very good things in my book.

I'm glad you enjoyed it somewhat. I haven't been able to get into her books. Maybe I'll try again. Have a great weekend Zia.
