Like many of the other reviews on the web, I was disappointed again. Not with the book by itself. But at the series. I am tired of Stephanie not learning how to charge her damn stun gun. Seriously, even a moron would have figured this out by now, and Stephanie is not a moron, but we just keep reading the same bungles time after time. And really, Ranger and Morellie, used to be interesting about 5 novels ago, but I am so apathetic that I can barely care less. Even the characters themselves seen apathetic, as I read in someone else's review. It almost like Janet can't be bothered to write some real interest into the characters. Come on. Morellie finds her in Hawaii with Ranger, knows shes been banging both of them, and is satisfied to punch Ranger and then go home and still and have make up sex because she brought some corned beef over? Pathetic. And then Stephanie can ask about rumors Morelli hooked up with someone else? I think i actually strained my eyeballs from ridiculous rolling.

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.

Bail bonds enforcer Stephanie Plum isn’t asking for trouble while returning from her “unique” Hawaiian vacation. In fact, Stephanie’s love life caused her enough problems in Hawaii. She isn’t back in New Jersey long when two thugs show up demanding that she return the photo that wound up in her bag on the plane ride home. The photo was a picture of some guy she didn’t know, so her mother tossed it out. Stephanie is more exasperated than frightened by the demand until she learns that the man who’d sat next to her on the plane didn’t make the connecting flight from LA to New Jersey because he’d been murdered. It also becomes evident that he died because of that photo. The appearance of a third, violent thug doesn’t help Stephanie’s situation, and these guys aren’t the only ones who are after her.

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 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. These stories used to be comical and now they are just rote.

I was dissappointed... We've had this dynamic situation between Stephanie and Ranger since the first few books and here we are 18 books later. Morelli just found out she been with them both and doesn't say anything, come on.... he's gonna blow...and it won't be good, he's been keeping his jealousy, possessiveness and need to control her just below the surface for so long but now she broke his trust...he'll never be able to trust her again!!! Not the Italian Stallion. He would never marry her anyway unless she changes who she is.... impossible...that would be a 10 minute marriage, even shorter than her first one!!! and she goes gives him pity sex after Hawaii to saveguard her position in case the neighbour is a contender for Morelli affection... come on...she been lying for so long(mostly to herself) she thinks she can lie herself out of this jam.
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.

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. Usually these novels have me laughing out loud, this one didn't do that for me.

I think it's time the story was switched up a little and that Stephanie made a choice between Morelli or Ranger.
