BLOWN UP
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 . . .

MESSED UP
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 triplie kidnapping aside--Stephanie's really got the urge to run for her life . . .
SEVEN UP

This was probably the funniest book I have read in this series. There were a few times I made someone in my family listen while I read to them to share the humor. Her family just gets funnier and funnier. It was a good idea for me to take a long break from reading these because I was just not appreciating the humor but now, I am finding them laugh out loud funny.

My Review
Just whipped through books 4 through 8 of the Stephanie Plum series, along with the Between-the-Numbers Holiday short story Visions of Sugar Plums. These are such fun, quick, reads that it's hard to sit down and write a review after each one without wanting to just jump right into the next instead. :)

Even though it's been 6 years since I've last hung with her, Stephanie is still such a wonderfully fun and refreshing person to hang with! And if you haven't yet read this series, let me tell you that Evanovich definitely throws you right into the story with her writing, making you feel like you're right there next to Stephanie and Lula kicking bad guy butt (or more like the other way around usually). LOL Or even Ranger or Joe... yummmm ;)

In any case, it took me a little over three weeks to read to read all 6 books--really 5 1/4 since Visions of Sugar Plums is only 152 pages--and right after that, Mike and I watched the One for the Money movie which we'd rented from Netflix. It was hilarious and I was happy to see that the screenwriters held true to pretty much everything in the book. I don't know if that movie did well enough at the box office to justify the sequel but I'd really love it if they made one. Stephanie and the gang are definitely worthy of the big screen. :)
