Product Description

From Amazon

Bounty hunter Stephanie Plum's got a lot on her mind. How does cigarette smuggler Eddie DeChooch, a fugitive so geriatric that even the hot-to-trot Grandma Mazur won't go out with him a third time, keep giving her the slip? How did a woman who died of a heart attack end up in DeChooch's garden shed with five bullet holes in her chest? Who stole a rump roast from Dougie and Mooner, the two lovable potheads who have decided to be crime fighters in Spandex bodysuits? Can Stephanie's perfect sister Valerie make it as a lesbian single mother without driving her family crazy? And--oh yeah--what should Stephanie do about that damn wedding dress on hold at Tina's Bridal Shoppe, waiting for her to decide whether vice cop Joe Morelli's really the one for her?

I did look good in the gown. I looked like Scarlett O' Hara getting ready for a big wedding at Tara. I moved around a little to simulate dancing.

"Jump up and down so we can see how it'll look when you do the bunny hop," Grandma said.

"It's pretty but I don't want a gown," I said.

"I can order one in her size at no obligation," Tina said.

"No obligation," Grandma said. "You can't beat that."

"As long as there's no obligation," my mother said.

I needed chocolate. A lot of chocolate. "Oh gee," I said, "look at the time. I need to go."

To complicate matters further, Stephanie's made a reluctant deal with the devil: if she can't bring in DeChooch by herself, her sexy but dangerous cohort Ranger is willing to help--for a price that a girl who's not-exactly-engaged is uncertain whether she should pay. But when Dougie and Mooner disappear, Grandma is kidnapped, and a crazy widow starts taking pot shots, no one who hides her .38 in a cookie jar is going to turn down a little friendly assistance.

In Seven Up, Janet Evanovich serves up her usual bubbly fare: a totaled car, raucous viewings at Stiva's Funeral Parlor, buffoonish bad guys, and down-and-dirty mud wrestling, all stirred up with some snappy Jersey repartee and a few tart, new twists that will keep her fans impatient. Heaven can't wait for number eight. --Barrie Trinkle --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From Publishers Weekly

It's always a treat to go out on a case with Stephanie Plum, the sassy, adventurous, but not always successful Trenton, N.J., bounty hunter. In her seventh outing (after 2000's Hot Six), Stephanie's employer, her bailbondsman cousin, Vinnie, gives her an easy job: pick up vicious senior citizen Eddie DeChooch, who is constantly sighted racing around Trenton in a borrowed white Cadillac, but whom no one can grab. The usual characters inhabit the novel: Steph's former high school buddies, the zonked-out Dougie and Mooner; and Evanovich's best creation, feisty Grandma Mazur. Stephanie's much-resented sister Valerie returns from California with her two daughters, her "perfect" marriage ended, and moves in with her parents, to their dismay. At times the plot meanders: Stephanie and pal Lula spend too much time running from house to house in the inbred Burg neighborhood, while two semi-retired crooks looking for DeChooch keep breaking into her apartment for little reason. All in all this is another zesty Evanovich read, but one that doesn't quite hit the high marks of her last two.

I started listening to Janet Evanovich audio books while I drove a long-haul transport truck and from the very first book I was hooked. I think a lot of it had to do with the humour that runs straight thru the book but I also think it had a lot to do with Lorelei King and the talented way she was able to take on the characters voices and keep them consistent throughout the book. The voices she gave the characters brought them to life and although there have been other readers (Lori Petty, Debi Mazar and others) none are as talented as Ms. King. At one point (I forget which one it was) there was an interview at the end of the story and Ms. Evanovich said that the voices Ms. King provided were the exact voices Ms. Evanovich had envisioned for them. I highly recommend all Janet Evanovich's book (audio or not) for some fun, light reading, but if you go audio select the ones that include Lorelei King. You will find yourself laughing out loud just envisioning the scenarios as they happen.

SEVEN UP by Janet Evanovich
Here's the seventh in the Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanovich: SEVEN UP. The series starts off with Stephanie unofficially engaged to Joe Morelli, but she's also lusting after Ranger, the rather unconventional bounty hunter (not that bounty hunters are conventional).
Stephanie continues to deal in the bounty hunter business, this time trying to capture an old man named Eddie DeChooch who is more elusive than she would like to admit. Mooner and Dougie from Hot Six are somehow involved with DeChooch, when Dougie disappears without a trace. It's Stephanie to the rescue! And of course, there's at least one visit to the neighborhood morgue, with Grandma Mazur up front and center.
An adventure with a pig's heart turns this one into a somewhat darker Stephanie Plum novel. Also, the first half of the novel did not read as funny as previous Stephanie Plum books, but all in all, SEVEN UP is still a fun fast read, and will have the reader chuckling before too long. This is definitely recommended reading for those looking for a fun beach read!

I love Stephanie but the car blowing, strangers-appearing, mom's dinners and I-cant-decide-with-men is wearing a little thin. Actually, the addition of Bob was one of the best moves made by Evanovich. Not only does he provide comic interest (and divert attention from the boring Rex), he is put to good use on Joyce's yard. The inclusion of arch enemy, bad gal Joyce, is a sure winner - she's so bad she's good.
I hate to gripe (and give three stars) but Grandma's crazy talk and antics are getting a little old (pardon the pun). Highlights of the novel were her tryst with Ranger (at last), the return of perfect sis Valerie, and Mom's self-discovery. The villians were ho-hum, not really evil nor even dangerous like some in the past.
Lula's dialogue (another gripe) is also getting stale. If she is not mimicking Rambo she's stuffing her face. How can one person eat the volume of food she does is beyond me. I don't know what is required but something different needs to happen soon. It would not hurt if she and Morelli got married. That would certainly introduce an entirely new wrinkle in the story. I'd love to see either (1) Stephanie on the trail of Joyce or (2) Joyce and Stephanie forced to work together to bring in a common foe. Either would be a heck of a novel!

Stephanie Plum is a bounty hunter working for her lecherous cousin Vinnie in Trenton, NJ. Klutzy Stephanie often mistakes her can of hair set for pepper spray, and forgets to charge her stun gun. It's a wonder she captures anybody.
HOT SIX ended with undercover vice cop Joe Morelli proposing marriage - sort of.
In SEVEN UP, Vinnie assigns Plum to seize Eddie DeChooch, who's jumped bail on a charge of cigarette smuggling. But Eddie refuses to be brought in until he finds something he's lost, and he's willing to resort to gunplay to make his point. But Stephanie hates guns - she keeps her .38 in a cookie jar. And what has DeChooch lost? All we and Stephanie know is that it has to be kept cold. In the meantime, Plum must mentally grasp Morelli's marriage proposal. They've an on-again, off-again relationship ever since Joe took her virginity on the floor behind the pastry counter of the bakery where she worked at eighteen. Mrs. Plum, whose nightmare is her daughter as an Old Maid, takes Stephanie out to try on wedding gowns when the latter, in a desperate moment at the Plum family dinner table with guest Joe, blurts out "August!". Will it happen, you think?
