Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand Evanovich is back! I was bitterly disappointed in the last 3 Plum number books so much so that I vowed never to buy another hardbound book. After reading the first four sections on her website I decided to take a chance and I'm happy I did. She finally gets back to to formula that made her books so good before. I laughed out loud quite a bit and there was just enough Ranger and Morelli. Two thumbs up for this! I'm excited for Explosive Eighteen which comes out in November. =]

Classic Stephanie Plum! FTAs include a senior citizen vampire and a psychotic wife. Bodies keep turning up on the lot of the former bail bonds office. Joe's grandmother puts "the eye" on Stephanie and then the dreaded vordo. Stephanie gets very friendly with both Joe and Ranger. Enter Dave...Throw in Mooner, Vinnie, Connie, Grandma Mazur and the always funny Lula. Shake well and drink it all down! 4 stars

Great installment in what was becoming a bit of a routine series. This one gets it alive and kicking again. Can't wait to see what happens in the next one. As always, sopme good laughs, a little mystery and a whole lot of fun.

My husband surprised me by buying this in hardcover for me. I was so excited but then I read it in just a few hours and I have to say the plotline was somewhat boring and completely predictable. I still gave the book 3 stars as the characters are as good as ever. I will read the next book because I still like the series but I will probably wait for softcover or to get it from swap. I just wish Janet evanovich could have made it a little less predictable.

Bounty Hunter Stephanie Plum is worried when a couple of bodies are discovered at the new bail bonds office construction site. One of the bodies has a note attached to it that reads "For Stephanie". Trying to help Joe Morelli identify the killer, Stephanie comes up with a couple different suspects. But her life is complicated right now by too many men vying for her attention. She has Morelli, Ranger and now Dave, a former high school football star that her mother set her up with.

The 17th book in the Stephanie Plum series has nothing new. I read this series out of habit, not expecting to laugh-out-loud like I did with the first couple of books. The book did gave a few chuckles and is a nice easy read. But don't expect any surprises with this series anymore. My rating: 3.5 Stars.

Plum is back and bigger than ever! I am another that was about ready to give up on the Stephanie Plum books because it seems almost as if Evanovich did the last 3 on autopilot. Boy, oh boy, did she ever get her groove back with this book! I only wish there would have been more of her mom and grandmom in the book. Oh well, I am now actually eagerly awaiting some more belly laughs from the next installment.

Smokin' Seventeen (Stephanie Plum #17) Janet Evanovich

I am a Huge Janet Evanovich fan, and I look forward to the movie, but I am a bit disappointed in this one. Stephanie, Lula, Grandma Mazur and all are back. Funny bail skips (one older man who thinks he is a vampire)and a lot of bodies turning up dead. Stephanies' life is at stake as she tries to figure out who the murderer is. I found it a bit predictable, but still enjoyable.

Filled with many laugh out loud moments, but I just would like to see Stephanie pick her man already!

It is getting old the Morelli/Stephanie/Ranger on again off again, "we have an arrangement" relationship. I love Steph, but she is getting a bit promiscuous, and that is just not my thing.

I still recommend to Evanovich fans, and I look forward to reading Explosive Eighteen
