<DIV><DIV>"For fans of Evanovich mysteries on audiobook, Lorelei King is more than a reader -- she is Stepahnie Plum."—Publishers Weekly</DIV><DIV> </DIV><DIV>"Lorelei King, once again, turns this 16th adventure into a delightful dramatic reading... This audio is laugh-out-loud funny." - The Chapel Hill Herald</DIV><DIV>

“Lorelei King performs Evanovich’s most recent mystery with her usual panache…King’s tone is just right for Plum’s madcap adventures.” – AudioFile magazine

“Lorelei King may be only one person but she realistically creates all the diverse characters…Listeners will never be able to imagine anyone else narrating the wild times of Stephanie and her friends. Entertaining listening at its best.” – SoundCommentary.com

Product Description

Trenton, New Jersey, bounty hunter Stephanie Plum has inherited a "lucky" bottle from her Uncle Pip. Problem is, Uncle Pip didn't specify if the bottle brought good luck or bad luck. . . .

BAD LUCK:

Vinnie, of Vincent Plum Bail Bonds, has run up a gambling debt of $786,000 with mobster Bobby Sunflower and is being held until the cash can be produced. Nobody else will pay to get Vinnie back, leaving it up to Stephanie, office manager Connie, and file clerk Lula to raise the money if they want to save their jobs.

GOOD LUCK:

Being in the business of tracking down people, Stephanie, Lula, and Connie have an advantage in finding Vinnie. If they can rescue him, it will buy them some time to raise the cash.

BAD LUCK:

Finding a safe place to hide Vinnie turns out to be harder than raising $786,000. Vinnie's messing up Mooner's vibe, running up pay-per-view porn charges in Ranger's apartment, and making Stephanie question genetics.

GOOD LUCK:

Between a bonds office yard sale that has the entire Burg turning out, Mooner's Hobbit-Con charity event, and Uncle Pip's lucky bottle, they just might raise enough money to save the business, and Vinnie, from ruin.

BAD LUCK:

Saving Vincent Plum Bail Bonds means Stephanie can keep being a bounty hunter. In Trenton, this involves hunting down a man wanted for polygamy, a turnpike toilet paper bandit, and a drug dealer with a pet alligator named Mr. Jingles.

GOOD LUCK:

The job of bounty hunter comes with perks in the guise of Trenton's hottest cop, Joe Morelli, and the dark and dangerous security expert, Ranger. With any luck at all, Uncle Pip's lucky bottle will have Stephanie getting lucky---the only question is . . . with whom?

Sizzling Sixteen . . . so hot, the pages might spontaneously combust!

I just finished Sizzling Sixteen, the latest Stephanie Plum novel by Janet Evanovich. It was a bit slow at first, but once I got into the story I was delightfully surprised. With a couple of hits and misses in this series along the way, I did not expect to like the book very much. But Evanovich has not succumbed to the fame that could make her sloppy as it has some other popular writers. I loved the story, found some depth to series characters like Vinnie, Connie and Mooner. Depth may be too strong a word, but at least fleshing them out. I would like to see some resolution to the continuing problem of who does Stephanie choose of them two me she loves, Morelli or Ranger, but then the series would end. And I feared that might happen with this book. I am happy to report the saga endures and cannot wait for ??? Seventeen. Happy reading! (Lula and Grandma -- you are so much fun!)

After reading the first fifteen books, I felt burnt out by this series and decided to take a break. Now a year later I feel as if I have been reunited with an old friend. I slipped into the story and Stephanie’s life like I hadn’t missed a beat.

Not much has changed from the previous books, which is kind of a downer, but I thought the way the plot progressed will hopefully open doors for some changes to come in number 17. It is a shame that there isn’t more character development. But this fan is still holding out hope for more.

The story line was enjoyable and fast paced, as was expected. However I think that had I not taken a break from reading these books, my overall rating would have been lower. I enjoy when Connie joins Stephanie on a hunt, as she definitely brings some brains and muscle to the team. Also an appearance from the Moon Man himself; Mooner is always appreciated.

Moving forward, I have decided not to rush through the rest of the books, as I have learned that spacing them out amongst other genres results in a much more enjoyable reading experience.
I would recommend Sizzling Sixteen to those who are already fans of the Stephani Plum series and Janet Evanovich.

Stephanie Plum is back again, and this time, she needs to rescue her cousin, Vinnie, before things end badly. He has accrued a gambling debt and is being held in lieu of the money. If Stephanie wants to keep her job, and her cousin alive; she needs to come up with the money, fast. She still has a job to do, and with Vinnie missing, her hands are full. Luckily, she has Ranger and Morelli to rely on for help.
This is the sixteenth installment in the Stephanie Plum series, and like it's predecessors, it does have several laugh out loud moments. Stephanie still gets into some pretty crazy predicaments, and Ranger is more often than not, running to her aid. It is a light-hearted, fun read, but Stephanie still hasn't decided what to do with her life, or whether or not she wants to be with Morelli or Ranger. Things just seem to be in stasis. Stephanie's character isn't progressing at all. I wish she'd choose one man, or the other, just to make a choice. I did find that the storyline was better in this book though when compared to some of the previous installments in the series.
Overall it was a lighthearted, fun, and engaging read with many humourous moments, however it doesn't live up to the first books in the series. It is definitely worth a read, though long time fans of either Ranger or Morelli will probably not be impressed with Stephanie's continued indecisiveness.

w books are as eagerly awaited as the next in the Stephanie Plum series, and here 'tis - SIZZLING SIXTEEN. Of course, it wouldn't really be Stephanie unless her voice is that of Lorelei King who seems to not only be more at home but better and better with each successive narration of the Plum stories (this is the 14th to be read by the award-winning voice performer.)

As Publishers Weekly once said of King's Plum readings, "King enhances the humor of this series so much that Evanovich fans should consider putting down that book and plugging in the Cd player instead."

AudioFile wrote, ".....relax and enjoy Evanovich's tight writing and King's amazing reading..."

Yep, it's unanimous - King's narration of the Plum series is the ultimate in listening pleasure, so treat yourself and listen as Stephanie, office manager Connie, and file clerk Lulu try to raise a pile of cash to save Vinnie (of Vincent Plum Bail Bonds). As readers of this series know by now Vinnie is not perfect, and his imperfections came to the fore when he ran up a gambling debt of $786,000. That's bad enough but even worse when the money is owed to mobster Bobby Sunflower who is holding Vinnie until the debt is paid.

According to the reasoning of Stephanie, Connie and Lulu, if they can find Vinnie it'll give them some time to raise the needed money. Well, finding him is one thing - keeping him out of harm's way is quite another. You don't mess with Bobby Sunflower!

Do you suppose a mammoth yard sale will raise enough money? And, if it does which means Stephanie can resume being a bounty hunter just who will she have to chase down now?

Fans needn't worry Joe Morelli, the best looking cop in Trenton (maybe even the whole state) is on hand as is security expert Ranger.

Enjoy!
