Book Club Friday - 01.18

It's time for Book Club with Heather!


This week I'm reviewing:

All New Jersey bounty hunter Stephanie Plum has to do is bring in semi-retired bail jumper Eddie DeChooch. For an old man he's still got a knack for slipping out of sight--and raising hell. How else can Stephanie explain the bullet-riddled corpse in Eddie's garden? Who else would have a clue as to why two of Stephanie's friends suddenly vanished? For answers Stephanie has the devil to pay: her mentor, Ranger. The deal? He'll give Stephanie all the help she needs--if she gives him everything he wants...

As if things weren't complicated enough, Stephanie's just discovered her Grandma Mazur's own unmentionable alliance with Eddie. Add a series of unnerving break-ins, not to mention the bombshell revelation leveled by Stephanie's estranged sister, and Stephanie's ready for some good news. Unfortunately, a marriage proposal from Joe Morelli, the love of her life, isn't quite cutting it. And now--murder, a randy paramour, a wily mobster, death threats, extortion, and a triple kidnapping aside--Stephanie's really got the urge to run for her life...


I definitely enjoyed this book and it had a lot of twists to keep me reading but I did start getting frustrated with Stephanie a little bit. How hard could it be to catch an old man?! Start carrying around that gun of yours missy!
But I was definitely excited about a couple of things in this book: the introduction of Valerie [because she's bound to make for some interesting storylines] and most importantly, Ranger's super hot offer. At this point, I don't know who has daydreamed of Ranger more - me or Stephanie...
