“No less than her plotting, Evanovich’s characterizations are models of screwball artistry. . . . The intricate plot machinery of her comic capers is fueled by inventive twists.”—The New York Times
“[Evanovich’s novels are] among the great joys of contemporary crime fiction.”—GQ

So Janet, I hope you are reading actual former fan reviews, because many many people are echoing these same sentiments. Stop reading the same tired and copied critic reviews and listen to you fans and soon to be exfans who are tired of the plot and characters never moving forward. Plug in your own stun gun and give this series a boost before its dead dead dead.
Stephanie and Morelli love each other, they have a long history, but she's in love with the black knight....yeesh.scary fun.. and she did exactly what she wanted to do! She's been holding Ranger back for a long time and just couldn't resist anymore.Will she take responsability for her actions.Can she stop her bed hopping now? She has a lot of growing up to do, jealous of everyone in Morelli's and Ranger's life(Jeanne Ellen), what is she emotionally arrested at 14? And it's not my fault is getting old!! Unless she takes her life seriously(nobody else can do it for her) and decides to do what needs to be done the kind of work she really enjoys(she's really good at investigating, (better than Morelli)and find a way to get paid for it, she will remain unsatisfied and living hand to mouth(what's this, she thirty something still living hand to mouth) Jeez... I found that the best books were the ones where Ranger and Stephanie were working together.Read more ›
Picking up shortly after the (small) cliff-hanger at the end of Smokin' Seventeen, Explosive Eighteen changes things up a bit by having two fun mysteries that don't even involve the bonds office. And those are on top of Steph and Lula's hilarious adventures in Bounty Hunting! I personally found this deviation from the normal formula to be fun and refreshing. I also really liked that we got a direct continuation of the story from the last installment. Often the Plum books are fairly self-contained, but I'm a fan of the continuing arc.
I've read complaints about Steph's back and forth between Morelli and Ranger, and the fact that she hasn't improved much as a Bounty Hunter in all these years. While both these issues are still present, what was different in book 18 is that Stephanie seems to have realized that it's time to make a choice and some improvements. Yay for progress! And it wouldn't be a Plum novel without the many laugh-out-loud moments, which were in full supply in Explosive Eighteen. I found Lula was especially hilarious this time around.
With some fun mysteries and hilarious antics, Explosive Eighteen is one of my favourite Plum adventures in quite a few numbers!
BONUS! The hardcover edition of Explosive Eighteen contains the cutest tear-out 2012 Plum calendar!
I’ve read only one other Stephanie Plum mystery and that was one of her first books some time ago. I’m sure I’ve missed a lot with the ups and downs of Stephanie’s personal life, yet in many ways things haven’t changed. Her family is the same, as her inability to settle down with one man. There were some laugh out loud moments, although the bad guys in this novel were too stupid to be believable. One of the characters involved with the photo makes a very late appearance in the book, and I would have liked to have seen him brought in earlier and his situation fleshed out a bit more. Still, this was an entertaining read.

I'd give this book 3.5 stars. It's a Stephanie Plum novel and they can never be bad. However I find the stories are starting to get a bit repetitive. Read morePublished 22 months ago by Marie

I found this book a disappointment compared to some of the earlier books. I think Ms. Evanovich is trading on the name rather than the content. Read morePublished on July 19 2012 by rosie
