This book with the Stephanie Plum character was extremely funny and so many outrageous things happen to her. it was totally entertaining and at the same time suspenseful. One really gets "hooked" on Stephanie. Easy and enjoyable reading!

Trenton's Best Girl
Well, Stephanie Plum is at it again. This time she has decided to put the bounty hunting business behind her and get a regular job. Things don't work out quite as she hoped because as Ranger puts it "Babe, you are a magnet for disaster." I believe that you will enjoy this book as much as I did. I hope that you read the entire series beginning with One for the Money because it will just magnify the fun. Stephanie Plum is a wonderful character who can make a bad day seem good.

Icing on the Cake
After reading ALL the series that I had with in my means so far, which has been to this particular book/cd. I can pretty much describe the Plum series as a big huge cake, something you can never get enough of. When I read this book, it made me want to run out and buy the new Plum books in the series. When I stop to think about it, it reminds me of Icing on the big cake. Especially when she leaves you wondering what this women, who is leading stephanie and yourself (the reader) to believe she is actually Ranger's Wife. As soon as I saw that, that was the part that made me wish I could pick up the next book..just so I can see if she actually turned out to be his wife or someone else. You will Love this Book as you did with all of the others. It will not disappoint you and it will be so sweet that you will be thinking about buying a cake. :-)

I read the book and found it to be as exciting as the others I have read by Janet. She knows how to keep your attention and not want to put the book down. It was exciting to read how Eve Plum always makes a bad scene inviting, suspicious, nail biting, hilarious and yet, she always manages to come up smelling like a rose. Her actions are well characterized. I look forward to reading all of Janet's books. I have also listened to some of her audio books and enjoy those as well. When I read some of Janet's books now, I can picture Eve and Lula by their voices on the audio. I think this makes the book even more enjoyable.
Publishers Weekly, 2005-05-30 New Jersey bounty hunter Stephanie Plum (last seen in 2004's Ten Big Ones) stumbles out of the gate due to some forced humor, but she eventually hits her usual entertaining stride in a tale that includes exploding cars, volatile wedding preparations and heated romantic entanglements. Stephanie decides to quit her job and seek less dangerous work after receiving a couple of disquieting notes. But the notes turn to threats and attacks, and she learns that her ineptitude is not confined to bounty hunting but transfers well to a succession of low-paying, sometimes humiliating jobs. After taking on Stephanie's previous duties, sidekick Lula naturally calls on Stephanie to lend a hand so that her bounty hunting travails continue unabated. Foul-mouthed Lula proves to have some pretty brutal ideas about how to bring 'em back. Bestseller Evanovich may be performing the same tricks over and over at this point in the series (the bumbling sleuth act, sexual-tension jokes, etc.), but most readers will find this a pleasing romp.
