Armchair Novel Review: Notorious Nineteen

Notorious Nineteen
A Stephanie Plum Novel
by Janet Evanovich

Hardcover, 320 pages

I have to tell you - if I knew how hilarious these books were I would have started reading them a long time ago.

Stephanie Plum is a quirky New Jersey bounty hunter, tracking down skips and putting her life on the line to make a buck. She is sexy, self deprecating and fast talking and will leave you in stitches as she gets her man. Or woman. Or 3-foot Tiki statue.

In Notorious Nineteen, it has been a slow season for Stephanie. Small bonds and low-level skips keep her somewhat busy and somewhat poor until one man out on bond disappears from the local hospital. He represents a big bond for Vinnie and a big payday for Stephanie. If only she could find him. Turns out he's not the only one to disappear from this particular hospital and between hunting him down, babysitting a cursed religious icon, and running interference for a deranged ex-military guy bent on ruining a wedding... she's got her hands full.

These books are the vacation you need. Snappy and funny and edge of your seat all at the same time. Take one with you everywhere.
