Picked this up from the annual Mississauga Symphony book sale. Great deal!

From Chapters:
The #1 bestselling , nationwide phenomenon continues with Janet Evanovich's most explosive Stephanie Plum thriller yet -- so get ready for the ride of your life!

Semi-retired mob guy, Eddie DeChooch, is caught trafficking contraband cigarettes through Trenton, New Jersey. When DeChooch fails to show for a court appearance, bond enforcement agent Stephanie Plum is assigned the task of finding DeChooch and dragging his decrepit ass back to jail. Not such an easy job, it turns out, since DeChooch has learned a lot of tricks over the years and isn't afraid to use his gun. He's already shot Loretta Ricci and left her for worm food in his shed. He wouldn't mind shooting Stephanie next.

Especially since Steph has discovered that likeable losers (and former high school classmates) Mooner and Dougie have inadvertently become involved with DeChooch. They've gotten sucked into an operation which is much more than simple cigarette smuggling and holds risks far greater than anyone could have imagined.

When Dougie disappears, Steph goes into search mode. When Mooner disappears, she calls in the heavy artillery and asks master bounty hunter Ranger for help. His price for the job? One night with Stephanie, dusk to dawn. Not information she'd want to share with her some-time live in roommate, vice cop Joe Morelli.

A typical dilemma in the world of Plum.

And on the homefront, Stephanie's "perfect" sister Valerie has decided to move back to Trenton, bringing her two kids from hell. Grandma Mazur is asking questions about being a lesbian, and Bob, the bulimic dog, is eating everything in sight -- including the furniture.

Mud wrestling, motorcycles, fast cars, fast food, and fast men. It's SEVEN UP. Absolutely Janet Evanovich at her very best.

Stephanie Plum is back, trying to find the retired Eddie DeChooch. Thinking he'll be an easy catch because he's so old, Plum goes after him with her friend Lula, an ex-prostitute, only to have him slide out a window and escape. Not to be outdone by a senior, Stephanie tries again, and again, and again. Her car suffers another not-so-surprising destruction in the process. Meanwhile, her mother and grandmother are starting to plan Stephanie's wedding to Morelli without her and Stephanie isn't even sure if she is ready to marry anyways. Stephanie's sister also comes back to New Jersey from California, her husband having left her, and decides that maybe she needs to try to be a lesbian.

As always, these novels are pure entertainment. There are laugh out loud moments in this book that had me chuckling as I was reading through it, a rare feat for a novel. This was a quick, fluff read and exactly what I needed between some of the heavier books I have been reading. I can't wait to read the next one!

Stephanie has to bring in Eddie DeChooch, a senior citizen who was caught smuggling cigarettes. How hard can it be to bring in a old man? Stephanie takes Lulu, an oversize ex-prostitute with her and Eddie escapes out the bathroom window. Eddie escapes time and time again. Eddie also has no trouble in shooting his gun. However, he does have trouble in seeing. After finding a dead body in Eddie's shed, the police also are trying to find Eddie.

Stephanie's family is now planning her wedding after Stephanie shoots off her mouth and says August would be a good time to get married. Next thing you know they have her in a bridal salon and booking the hall. Whoa!!! Is this going too fast when Stephanie and Morelli aren't really that sure yet?

Mooner comes to Stephanie for help as Dougie the dealer is missing. Was he also involved with the cigarette smuggling? When Mooner and then Grandma also go missing, it is just too much and Stephanie ramps it up and calls on Ranger for help. But Ranger wants compensation for his help.

This is another winner in the series. There were some very good LOL moments. Eight here I come :)
