I received this as an Xmas present. Stephanie Plum is fun!

From Amazon:
Sexy, smart-talking New Jersey bounty hunter Stephanie Plum returns for her sixth wildly amusing mystery (after 1999's High Five). Determination and contacts (she's grown up with half the cops and crooks in Trenton) compensate for Steph's poor aim with a gun, bad luck with cars and soft-hearted approach to her job (one bail jumper evades her four times). The police are after her mentor, the mysterious Ranger, wanted for killing drug and gun dealer Homer Ramos. Claiming he's innocent, Ranger persuades Steph to help him keep an eye on the Ramos clan. Steph teams up with her lover, vice cop Joe Morelli, then strikes out on her own when she realizes neither Joe nor Ranger will share information with her. When Mafia thugs get involved, she barely avoids kidnapping and torture. Meanwhile, there's her love life to deal with. Can she be physically attracted to Ranger and be in love with Joe? Evanovich spins all these threads, plus more, into a lunatic tapestry of nonstop action peopled by wacky characters straight out of a 1930s screwball comedy: Steph's Grandma Mazur, 80 years old, with the world view of a teenage punk; Mooner and Dougie, two lovable but zonked-out stolen goods dealers who have a closeout sale before going to jail; Habib and Mitchell, mobsters who follow Steph when Mitchell's wife doesn't need the car for kids' soccer games; and Steph's co-worker and pal, Lula, a gun-toting ex-prostitute always ready for an adventure.

When Stephanie Plum heads in to her cousin's bail office to get her most recent assignment, she doesn't expect to be asked to bring in her fellow bounty officer and friend Ranger. Ranger was the last person seen with Homer Ramos before he was shot in the head and his office building set on fire. Stephanie turns down the job but her office isn't the only one looking for Ranger. Her arch nemesis is the bounty officer looking for him, as are two thugs who won't say who they are working for.

Stephanie tries to go about her usual business, which involves another torched car, a man trying to set her on fire, and dog-sitting turned into dog ownership. Stephanie's antics, as always, can get you laughing while you read. I really enjoy Bob the dog and I'm sure he's around to stay. Of course, the chemistry between Stephanie and Joe is always sizzling and you can always count on Stephanie's granny for a laugh. This book was even more enjoyable than the last couple in the series!

When Stephanie goes to get her latest bounty job from her cousin Vinny, she is amazed that it is for Ranger, a fellow bounty hunter and one major heart throb. She turns it down because she thinks Ranger is innocent of murdering Homer Ramos, the head of a crime family.

Ranger instead wants her help in keeping an eye on the Ramos and trying to figure out what is really going on. Of course, Stephanie isn't the only one looking for Ranger. Besides her nemesis bounty hunter, Joyce, there are 2 bad guys constantly tailing her and her lover, Cop Joe Morelli.

In the middle of all this, Grandma Mazur leaves home to come live with Stephanie and Stephanie who agrees to dog sit for awhile ends up with a huge dog named Bob. This all hinders any love life Stephanie has going on.

A number of cars are ruined once again but the funniest part involves the bad guys car and Bob. This is the best of the series so far and definitely recommended for anyone needing some laughter in their life.
