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
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of The Best in the Series! Sept. 2 2006
By Shepherdess Extraordinaire TOP 1000 REVIEWER
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!

True, Lorelei King may not look at all like Stephanie Plum, but she most certainly is Stephanie's voice and has been for some time, establishing a bond between listeners who eagerly await the next one from Evanovich and King. This narrator never tends to over dramatize but allows the listener to become very much a part of the story. Evanovich speaks highly of King, saying she knows how to differentiate the characters "... so you know when it's Joe Morelli (a handsome Jersey cop and Plum's love interest) talking and when it's Stephanie. But the voice still has a certain--for lack of a better word--generic quality that allows listeners to put some of themselves into it."

How true, so sit back and enjoy Twelve Sharp where we find Stephanie the victim of a stalker. Seems that the bounty business is in a bit of a nose dive so Stephanie takes on another bail-enforcement officer. Who would turn up to apply for this job? You cannot imagine!

In true Evanovich fashion the plot's a bit zany but always laugh-out-loud funny. You see, it seems that Ranger has kidnaped his own daughter. No way. But, you'll want to listen to find out who and why. Nonetheless, Ranger turns to Stephanie for help. And the closer he gets to Stephanie, the more Joe Morelli doesn't like it. Now, toss in a few stunts by Grandma Mazur and the resurrection (pun intended) of Stiva's Funeral Parlor and you have another riotous romp from the popular, prolific Evanovich.

5.0 out of 5 stars Addicted to Stephanie Plum! June 25 2006
By M. Read
I just finished reading 12 Sharp, and couldn't put the book down! There is just something about the series... I can't stop reading them! In 12 Sharp Stephanie has returned to her job as a bounty hunter, and is busy keeping up with the mounting pile of FTA's. The novel reintroduces us to the hilarious escapades of Lula, Sally and Grandma Mazur, and includes a laugh out loud scene involving "Tank". Stephanie finds herself in some trouble involving a new Ranger, and of course trouble with the one and only Ranger. I can't wait until book 13, and until then I'm going to have to reread the series or something! I need my Morelli fix! This book will not let you down, it has the same fast pace as the other books in the series, and ends in a way that leaves you desperate for more!!
