In the heat of Florida, Alex Barnaby, star of the hilarious "Metro Girl", comes up against the irresistible hot racing driver and bad boy, Sam Hooker. Follow Alex's antics and adventures in the brilliant high speed thriller, "Motor Mouth". A woman with a taste for speed and a talent for breaking the rules, Barney knows a little too much about cheating. First there was Hooker and that sales clerk, and now she's convinced that arch rival Huevo Motor Sports is up to no good on the track. Snooping to find evidence, Hooker, Barney and Beans, a 150-pound St Bernard hound, discover more than they bargained for - a shrink-wrapped body with a hole in its head. And the dead guy just happens to be Huevo's head honcho, Oscar. A number of competitors wanted him silenced, not to mention his long-suffering, surgically perfected wife, so who actually pulled the trigger? Most likely the creep who dognaps Beans! Barney, Hooker and the Super Cigar Ladies Felicia and Rosa shift into gear on a wild race around Florida and North Carolina to rescue Beans, outpace a pair of goons named Horse and Baldy! And expose a dirty cheater.
Evanovich does it again. Fast, funny, and lots of twists. Great characters. Very enjoyable read.

Not Stephanie but good
Motor Mouth is the 2nd book in the Barnaby series. Although I enjoyed reading this book I found myself comparing it to her (Janet Evanovich) Stephanie Plum novels. I thought that it was funny and clever but not quite as much as the Plum books. Although, I do recommend you read it, if you are a Plum fan be sure to remember that Alex Barnaby is not Stephanie Plum : ) Enjoy!
Publishers Weekly, 2006-11-20 At the start of this cool comedy thriller from bestseller Evanovich, her second novel to star Alexandra "Barney" Barnaby (after 2004's Metro Girl), Barney and her unfaithful NASCAR racing honey, Sam Hooker, find themselves in trouble after discovering the shrink-wrapped body of ruthless businessman Oscar Huevo in a rival racer's car hauler. The pair must pull together to protect a high-tech gizmo that can revolutionize racing-and save their lives. Evanovich burns some rubber and only hits the brakes a few times, thanks to her bright dialogue, race-track savvy and expert depiction of romantic mayhem. Though sometimes it seems as if she's still taking a test drive with this new cast of eccentrics, the pages fly by as the racy tension between Hooker and Barney adds heat to the fun. Action on the menu includes destruction of valuable race cars, a dognapping and a kidnapping. While Barney isn't likely to beat Stephanie Plum in a popularity contest, she's still a hoot.
