#7 in Stephanie Plum series
Kindle Edition, 212 pages
(first published July 19th 2001)
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'm so glad that this series is continuing to be so strong. Most of the time I get really sick of love triangles (especially in books that go past 2 or 3 in a series), but Evanovich has managed to keep me absolutely adoring this Stephanie sandwich. AND speaking of sandwiches, I about died when I read she ate a peanut butter and olive sandwich! I love those! Although I'm Team Morelli, I sure did miss Ranger.
