5.0 out of 5 stars Serious Fun as Stephanie Plays Decoy for Ranger July 15 2006
By Donald Mitchell #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
Only a Stephanie Plum novel would cause some to complain because the plot had an actual mystery and intrigue in it. That shows how much we've been spoiled by Janet Evanovich's comic touch. We come to the new books in the series for the entertainment (much like people once did for Charlie Chaplin) and we're surprised when serious themes emerge.

I thought that Twelve Sharp was by far the most impressive novel in the series. The story-telling moves beyond Pink Panther comedy into dealing with the serious consequences of actions we take. At the same time, the book goes down very smoothly.

The serious side is well done. Stephanie finds herself stalked by a young woman with a gun she doesn't mind using who claims to be Ranger's wife. What's that all about? Stephanie is also at risk for being kidnapped. And then Ranger's daughter is missing. It's a nicely complicated mystery and is unraveled in fine fashion. While this part of the story is not yet up to Dame Agatha's best, it's more than satisfying.

The character development of Stephanie and Ranger through the plot is quite remarkable in this story. In the past, Ranger has been the Superman of mystery who could do no wrong. She's been in his thrall . . . but kept at a distance only by his self-restraint. So why has he been self-restrained? In this story, we learn more about Ranger and begin to sense his vulnerabilities. An unexpected pregnancy made Ranger a father at a young age. Since then, he's met his financial responsibilities and kept his distance from similar complications. But that all comes unglued when his daughter is kidnapped and Ranger is the suspect the police are looking for. As a result, Ranger has to go undercover.

4.0 out of 5 stars Three's Company Aug. 18 2007
By Amanda Richards HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Twelve Sharp cuts through Ranger's previously impervious shell to reveal a side that you've seldom, if ever, seen before, and this time it's the dark knight who's in distress and Stephanie's turn to play Batgirl.

Things get extremely steamy when Batman decides to hang out in a new bat cave, and when Stephanie's longtime sometime boyfriend finds out, the guano really hits the fan.

No one stops at her door
They just go right on through
Now the pressure's on her and him and him
Three's company too.

All the usual suspects are back again, but this time they're joined by a bunch of out of control FTAs, wannabe bounty hunters, plus two fiery, black clad super-crazy females, only one of whom is Joyce, Stephanie's archenemy.

The fun keeps flowing when Lula decides to embark on a new career, complete with short shorts and chicken feathers, and Stephanie's grandmother takes on the new undertakers in town.

Stephanie's in one of her most dangerous predicaments so far, and that's not even taking into account the new murderer in her life. Twelve Sharp puts a fresh spin on familiar territory.

5.0 out of 5 stars Midwest Book Review Dec 4 2006
Format:Hardcover
In the latest venture of the Stephanie Plum series, Stephanie's back to work as a bounty hunter and teaming up with former filing clerk Lula when Lula isn't singing with the rock band, What. Joe Morelli's still around as the hot boyfriend and mystery man Ranger's off to Miami. Things go haywire when a woman who claims to be Ranger's wife shows up and shoots at Stephanie. Then Ranger disappears after he is accused of kidnapping his little girl, who lives with her mother and stepfather in Miami. When the woman who claims to be Ranger's wife is murdered, Stephanie's out to prove Ranger's innocence, unaware she's attracted the attention of a Ranger wannabe.

Anything goes and a lot happens with this 12th installment. Janet Evanovich proves herself the master of wit with dialogue to die for and plenty of humor topped with loads of action. The triangle between Stephanie, Morelli, and Ranger continues but a new relationship has been added to the mix: Lula and Tank, Ranger's number one man. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of The Best in the Series! Sept. 2 2006
By Shepherdess Extraordinaire TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
I've always felt that the first 3 books of the series were the absolute best - until now. I love the series but the others that followed the first three were hit and miss compared to them. Happily, Twelve Sharp is just as great as those first 3. This one is also by far the funniest. What I loved best about this one is that Ranger plays a very large role in this novel so there's lots of "heat" just being Ranger. The only drawback is that I think Rex should have had more of a starring role as well! LOL!
