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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Sizzling Sixteen Shines July 5 2010
Format:Hardcover
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!)

By Mrs. Q: Book Addict TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
Title: Sizzling Sixteen
Author: Janet Evanovich
Publisher: St. Martin's Press
Pages: 309
Source: Personal Copy
Rating: 3.25/5

Synopsis:

Stephanie Plum is a less than amazing bounty hunter. Her typical day includes being chased, shot at or having her car blown up. Did I mention fighting off an alligator? Enticing him with chicken? Her mother is on edge, wanting nothing more than to have her only daughter settle down and get a normal job. Her father keeps to himself and tries to ignore his unusual family, and her grandma Mazur has her schedule full with social activities including funeral viewings. In the sixteenth installment Stephanie Plum is back in action! Her cousin Vinnie is missing, and he owes gambling money to the wrong people. Stephanie, her best friend, Lula and office secretary, Connie seek to track him down and bring him back to the bonds office. Lula is running around in too-tight spandex, and Connie is receiving threatening phone calls. Stephanie has an empty fridge, is one month behind on her rent and has captures to apprehend while dealing with the Vinnie situation. As temping as it is to forget about Vinnie, she knows the family guilt would be too much to handle. As always the two men in her life are standing-by to protect her. Her on-again off-again relationship with Morelli is currently off. Ranger on the other hand is always perfect and willing to lend Stephanie anything she needs. Stephanie also had to deal with lots and lots of hobbits.

Overall Impression:

Sizzling Sixteen is a typical 'Stephanie Plum' novel. It's hilarious, the characters are quirky and as always there is a little mystery. I always enjoy Grandma Mazur, and Lula is a riot. I laughed out loud when I read those sections.

By Donald Mitchell #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
"Talk no more so very proudly;
Let no arrogance come from your mouth,
For the LORD is the God of knowledge;
And by Him actions are weighed." -- 1 Samuel 2:3 (NKJV)

Sizzling Sixteen has more plot twists and turns than a pretzel factory. I'm not surprised after seeing how much the cover revealed about the story.

The only trouble is, Stephanie and company just don't seem like the right raw material for a thriller plot.

As a result, scenes that could have been developed into something memorably comic just splat a pie in your face and quickly move on. Before you get the last pie out of your eyes, you get hit with another one. Actually, with so many attempts at doughnut humor in the book, perhaps I should have said that Ms. Evanovich simply splats a jelly doughnut with powdered sugar into your face.

The book races ahead, but you may not find yourself caring whether it does or not. The key element is that Vinnie is in trouble. Now, do you really care what happens to Vinnie?

I assume most people who read these books enjoy seeing Stephanie make up her mind about what relationships she wants to have with Morelli and Ranger. If you enjoy that aspect of the series, you'll probably be disappointed in this book.

I often find some of the bounty hunter confrontations in the series to be hilarious. A couple of the situations in this one had potential, but Ms. Evanovich raced through those as well without taking full advantage of their potential.

The only question I had at the end of the book was whether Ms. Evanovich ever plans to write a book that advances the series romantically with something more than brief stabs at humor.

Unless you are a Plum addict, you can skip this one.
